Forever Changed (Lyrics) – Carrie Underwood

These are the lyrics for Forever Changed, off Carrie Underwood’s album “Blown Away.”

[Verse 1:]

She remembers the nights he’d come calling

His yellow-silk tie

In love she saw him falling for her in the fire of July

Then one day as the nights grew longer

blackberry winter in a little white church

stood a young pretty bride

[Chorus:]

Forever changed,

Forever changed,

Nothing ever stays the same

Forever named,

Forever changed

[Verse 2:]

She remembers the change in her body

The blooming within

And how her heart seemed to flutter with the wind

Then one night as the days grew longer

That Indian summer

She brought love into the world

Cried and held me then

[Chorus:]

Forever changed,

Forever changed,

Nothing ever stays the same

Forever child,

Forever changed

[Verse 3:]

Somedays she’ll talk about aunt Rosie

the sister she lost

asking when she’s coming over

and why she hasn’t called

Somedays I just hold her fragile hand

as time creeps across the floor

Somedays it just kills me 

watching her memories slip away a little more

[Outro]

Forever changed,

Forever changed,

Nothing ever stays the same

Forever named,

Forever child,

Forever loved,

Forever changed.

Carrie Underwood’s Favorite Song on Blown Away

In a recent interview, Carrie Underwood spoke about her favorite song on her upcoming album, Blown Away.

She said:

I do have a favorite track on this album. It’s a slow one and it’s kind of a sad one. But it’s by far, I think, the most well-written song I’ve heard in my life. There’s something so old fashioned and beautiful about it. It just takes you back to a whole other time. It’s a movie. It’s some gorgeous love story, kind of between a mom and daughter. It’s just gorgeous. I had the hardest time getting through this song without bawling my eyes out and had the hardest time still listening to it even though I’ve heard it a hundred times. So chances are I’ll never perform it in person. But it’s my favorite and I think it’ll be easy when people hear the album to know which one I’m talking about.

The song she’s talking about is Forever Changed, written by Tom Douglas, Hillary Lindsey and James Slater. It is about a young girl meeting the love of her life, getting married and having a baby. It takes you back in time to tell the story. At the end, the mom’s slipping away a little bit. It is a sad song that’s about love, being forever changed, forever loved.

I would have thought Carrie’s favorite song would be the second single “Blown Away,” especially after all the praise that she has given it. Either way, Forever Changed sounds like a great song and Tom Douglas is a terrific songwriter. He recently wrote Miranda Lambert’s biggest hit: The House That Built Me.

Carrie Underwood’s album, Blown Away, will be released on May 1st.
