About the song Edit
The song was written during demo sessions for the Astronaut album, which began in the south of France in June 2001. The band wrote more than 30 songs during the demo sessions that continued into 2002 and 2003.
During this period a teaser CD with short demo versions of a few of the unfinished songs (used to demonstrate the new work to potential labels and producers) was leaked to the Internet and quickly copied throughout the band's fan base. The songs on the CD were "Virus", "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise", "TV vs Radio", "Taste the Summer", "Salt in the Rainbow" and "Pretty Ones".
The band were very unhappy about the leak and with the exception of "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise" which became their first single and "Taste the Summer", the leaked songs were not included in the final version of Astronaut. "Virus" later appeared as a bonus track on a Japanese edition of Astronaut.

Something to remember In some far off time When you get that lonely shine in your eye Dreamers and lovers Ever wonder why When everything starts breaking down They're reaching for the sky We are forever All we understand This is forever Here within our hands (Forever, together, we're gonna live forever) Picking through the pieces And what do you have at all? Just the danger of relying on those who'd let you fall So you try, try much harder Until the truth is drawn The very thing you've been searching for Has been yours all along We are forever All we understand This is forever Here within our hands (Forever, together, we're gonna live forever) In the end, to you my friend It's you I've got to know Ain't no going back now Even if I could I wouldn't change a thing, I'd do it all over Just a minute now And breathe a little deeper All these moments of our lives Of the flickering of an endless sea We're ripples With the salt in the rainbow We are forever All we understand (Forever, together, we're gonna live forever) This is forever Here within our hands (Forever, together, we're gonna live forever)
