Foo Fighters – Everlong

Everlong” is the second single released from Foo Fighters’ second album The Colour and the Shape, released in 1997. Everlong was written against the background of the break-up of Dave Grohl’s first marriage to photographer Jennifer Youngblood. Having returned home to Virginia for Christmas 1996, Grohl turned the initial riff into a complete song and wrote the lyrics after falling for a new woman, “That song’s about a girl that I’d fallen in love with and it was basically about being connected to someone so much, that not only do you love them physically and spiritually, but when you sing along with them you harmonise perfectly.”.

Foo Fighters – Everlong Lyrics:
Writer: GROHL, DAVE
Lyrics ┬ę Warner/Chappell Music, Inc.

Hello….
I’ve waited here for you… Everlong.
Tonight I throw myself into.
And out of the red.
Out of her head she sang.

Come down.
And waste away with me.
Down with me.
Slow how.
You wanted it to be.
Over my head.
Out of her head she sang.

And I wonder.
When I sing along with you.
If everything could ever feel this real forever.
If anything could ever be this good again.
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you.
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when.
She sang.

Breathe out so I can breathe you in.
Hold you in.
And now I know you’ve always been.
Out of your head, out of my head I sang.

And I wonder.
When I sing along with you.
If everything could ever feel this real forever.
If anything could ever be this good again.
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you.
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when.
She sang.

(So dad would take the sunday’s off.
and that’s the only time he could ever get any rest.
and so if we were loud on sundays.
he’d make us hold his construction suits over our head.
till we’d sleep and they were really heavy.
and it only had one sleeve.
but we’d start crying because it’s too heavy).

And I wonder.
If everything could ever feel this real forever.
If anything could ever be this good again.
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you.
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when.
