If you've been paying attention to the 80's output I've released you'll notice an absence of keyboardist Robert Lamm who was such an integral part of the bands early success. His role would be diminished throughout the 70's and by the 80's he was a sideman in his own band contributing less and less to the songwriting. Forever is reminder of his greatness. The lyrics acknowledge the rising divorce rates in society and being hopeful that he won't end up that way. It concludes with the most prominent sax part in a Chicago song since 1976's Once or Twice. I was sad to learn that founding member Walt Parazaider did not do this part. Instead a session who also played sax in the 80's hit "St. Elmo's Fire".
