Everything went wrong
And the whole day long
I'd feel so blue
For the longest while
I'd forget to smile
Then I met you

Now that my blue days have passed
Now that I've found you at last

I'll be loving you, always
With a love that's true, always
When the things you've planned
Need a helping hand
I will understand
Always, always

Days may not be fair, always
That's when I'll be there, always
Not for just an hour
Not for just a day
Not for just a year
But always

Days may not be fair, always
But that's when I'll be there, always
Not for just an hour
Not for just a day
Not for just a year
But always

Song facts

"Always" is a popular song written by Irving Berlin in 1925, as a wedding gift for his wife Ellin McKay, whom he married in 1926, and to whom he presented the substantial royalties. The song was supposed to be used for the Marx Brothers' Broadway musical The Cocoanuts but was cut by Berlin during out-of-town tryouts.

In 1942 it was used as the theme music for the film The Pride of the Yankees. Hit versions have been recorded by such diverse artists as Frank Sinatra, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Billy Corgan, Guy Lombardo, Leonard Cohen, Phil Collins, Machito and The Ink Spots.
