VERSE 1:

Untangle my branches,

Let me ride on your wave,

Weave your magic spell,

Let me hide in your cave.

 

Untangle my branches,

Let me ride on your wave,

Weave your magic spell,

Let me hide in your cave.

 

 

CHORUS:

Be my lion, be my dove,

Be the hand that fits my glove,

Be the stars I see at night,

And the shining moon above.

 

Be my lion, be my dove,

Be the hand that fits my glove,

Be the stars I see at night

And the shining moon above.

 

 

VERSE 2:

Stop my tears from flowing,

Be there when I awake,

Warm me when I'm cold,

Be there to stop me shake.

 

Stop my tears from flowing,

Be there when I awake,

Warm me when I'm cold,

Be there to stop me shake.

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

BRIDGE:

Be forever, be forever,

Be forever my valentine,

Forever my love.

 

 

VERSE 3:

Take me to the horizon,

Raise me up when I fall,

Write my name on the wind,

Run to me when I call.

 

Take me to the horizon,

Raise me up when I fall,

Write my name on the wind,

Run to me when I call.

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

BRIDGE:

Be forever, forever,

Be forever my valentine,

Forever my love.

 

Be forever, forever,

Be forever my valentine,

Forever my love.

 

Be forever,

Be forever my valentine,

Forever my love.

Forever My Love - LYRICS

Intended as an offering for that special day that celebrates love, this was originally called 'Valentine'. It then turned into a song called 'The Magician'.

 

The lyrics were a way of describing how a person you love can seem at times to be capable of magic.

 

The melody came about when wandering in some woods near our home in Kent. I already had an idea for the lyrics and had watched the film 'Ray' the night before. As I wandered, a tune came into my head, inspired in part by 'What I'd Say' by Ray Charles. And a little of Dusty's 'Won't Be Long'.

 

Through research into the Ray Charles song I set about trying to create something of that upbeat, gospel feel.
