From MYRIAM HERNANDEZ
Written by David Foster & Myriam Hernandez

Myriam Hernandez is a popular Chilean singer. She started her career in the late eighties and became especially well-known in Latin America for her passionate love songs. Hernandez often collaborated with her compatriot, Humberto Gatica, who engineered and produced many of her projects. Recorded mostly in Los Angeles, Gatica brought in the usual array of sessions aces like Mike Landau, John Robinson and Ramon Stagnaro. Gatica also invited David Foster to appear on a couple of occasions.

In 1994, Hernandez recorded “Por Siempre Juntos,” a Spanish cover of the beautiful Foster instrumental ballad “Forever Linda.” “Por Siempre Juntos” was included on her self-titled album that same year. Hernandez delivered an intense vocal performance backed by a classic, dramatic Foster arrangement. The original instrumental, “Forever Linda,” can be found on Foster’s solo record, “Love Lights The World.”

A few years earlier, Foster also played keyboards on “Sabia,” another ballad that was part of Hernandez’s 1990 hit album, “Dos.”

Lyrics

Fuimos
siempre más que amigos
y por eso nada
pudo terminar nuestro amor.

Juntos
caminamos juntos
siempre por el mundo
defendiendo nuestra ilusión.

Y hay
este amor inmenso
que existe
luchará por siempre, tenerte
y nunca separarnos porque sin tu amor no soy
y por siermpre yo estaré, amándote
tan sólo a ti.

Dime
si cuando me besas
sientes que respiras
y comienzas pronto a vivir.

Dilo
y no tengas miedo
porque estoy contigo
yo lo siento todo mi amor.

Por eso
yo estaré a tu lado
cuidando
que este amor exista por siempre
y nunca separarnos
porque sin tu amor no soy
y por siempre yo estaré, amándote
tan sólo a ti
porque no podré vivir
si tú no estás cerca de mí
no olvidemos que este amor nos mantendrá
por siempre juntos.
