"Still Remains" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Our bed we live, our bed we sleep
Making love and I become you
Flesh is warm with naked feet
Stabbing thorns and you become me

Oh, I'd beg for you, oh you know I'll beg for you

Pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
Take a bath I'll drink the water that you leave
If you should die before me ask if you could bring a friend
Pick a flower hold your breath and drift away

She holds my hand, we share a laugh
Sipping orange blossom breezes
Love is still and sweat remains
A cherished gift unselfish feeling

Oh, I'd beg for you, oh you know I'll beg for you

Pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
Take a bath I'll drink the water that you leave
If you should die before me ask if you could bring a friend
Pick a flower hold your breath and drift away

She tells me things, I listen well
Drink the wine save the water
Skin is smooth I steal a glance
Dragon flies are gliding over

Oh I'd beg for you, oh you know I'll beg for you

Pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
Take a bath I'll drink the water that you leave
If you should die before me ask if you could bring a friend
Pick a flower hold your breath and drift away

    General Comment"Take a bath, I'll drink the water that you leave. If you should die before me ask if you can bring a friend." Absolutely the two best lines about being in love I've ever heard.

    General CommentDoes anyone else think this song has a lot to do with death?

    I think a lot of it is about the person you loving dying. The name itself "Still Remains" has two completely different meanings... one is love still being there and the other is someones dead body. I think scott weiland loves writing these kind of double meaning lyrics--"too much trippin and my soul/sole s worn thin"...

    Anyone know of any other death references in the song or at least agree with me? I'm not really sure, but I've been thinking about it a lot.

    My OpinionI've always believed this was Scott's goodbye song to his beloved Mary before he married Janina. Mary was about 19 when Purple was released in June of 1994, hr and Janina were married in September, 94. She had been Scott's dear friend for about four years and they had been together when their careers would allow but he was marrying another. This song speaks of his deep yet innocent love for her and I feel he was saying goodbye and letting her know he'd always have these deep feelings for her, they would "still remain". I also think he went to his grave loving Mary, Jamie was someone to love and be loved by when Mary completely turned her back on him, took his kids, and moved out of state.
    Scott Weiland died of a broken heart long before December 4, 2015, it just took a while to take him away completely. I pray he is at peace and knows how loved he was by so many of his fans.

    General Commenti think it's a song about a girl he's with, letting her know how much he loves doing things with her. it's just a beautifully written simple song, celebrating love

    General CommentThis is obviosly a love song, its not really about drugs or death. The quote " if you should die before me ask if you can bring a friend" basiclly stateing that if she "were" to die he'd follow shortly afterward. Its a beautiful song/

    General CommentScotts lyrics are CHARACTERIZED by double meanings and double messages/meanings, but look under love song in the dictionary and you'll find this song. I'd like to think history will look back and find Scott Weiland up there with not only the greatest vocalists in the history of man, but also a profound song writer.
