I looked it up in the dictionary and the meaning varied greatly with each dictionary.
We say it a lot but do we mean it?
When you say that you will love someone forever, but then something happens and you don’t love them anymore.

I think Jackson Browne summed up the best in the beautiful song called “FARTHER ON” from the Album “LATE FOR THE SKY”
With-it my early years,
I hid my tears
And passed my days alone
Adrift on an ocean of loneliness

To catch the love that I’d heard of
In books and films and songs
Now there’s a world of illusion and fantasy
In the place where the real world belongs
I look for the beauty in songs.
