"Even Now" as written by Barry Manilow and Martin Panzer....
Even now when there's someone else who cares
When there's someone home who's waiting just for me
Even now I think about you as I'm climbin' up the stairs
And I wonder what to do so she won't see

That even now when I know it wasn't right
And I've found a better life than what we had
Even now I wake up cryin' in the middle of the night
And I can't believe it still could hurt so bad

Even now when I have come so far
I wonder where you are, I wonder why it's still so hard without you
Even now when I come shining through, I swear I think of you
And how I wish you knew, even now

Even now when I never hear your name
And the world has changed so much since you've been gone
Even now I still remember and the feeling's still the same
And this pain inside of me goes on and on, even now

Even now when I have come so far
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it's still so hard without you
Even now when I come shinin' through
I swear I think of you and God, I wish you knew
Somehow, even now

    My InterpretationA great song of a love lost.....or is it? I think that the former girlfriend (or boyfriend) depending on the way you look at it, has passed away. When you look a the lyrics, it fits.
    One line in the song ''and the world has changed so much since you've been gone'' is a hint. It's not 'my' world it's 'the' world which to me, means that he/she has died.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. Reminds me of "the one that got away." I can't believe I'm the first comment!

    General CommentThis song gets me every time I hear it. If you have ever been in that place about someone it hits so close to home. But, even if the person knew you were thinking about them (or if they had been thinking about you the same way), what difference would it make? What would it change?

    General CommentI think it refers to the end of his marriage to his high school sweetheart.
