"Still" as written by Idina Menzel and Milton Davis....
Well I don't believe in god
But she talks to me all the time
And I banish my mother
But she holds me when I cry
And I have been unfaithful but
With me he'll spend the rest of his life
Yes I have been forgiven
By all whom I've betrayed and loved
And I have everything I want
Is it ever enough?

[Chorus]
Still I can't be still
Still I can't be silent
Still I can't be still
Still I can't be saved
Still I can't be still
I can't be silent
Still I, still

Well I don't believe I'm beautiful but
At least I've got my sister's smile
And I resist the muses yet
They sing to me in exile
And destiny is not deafening
But it hushed me like a child
And every time I feel as though
I'm closer to the eye
The storm winds blow
I run inside, and though I feel revived-

[Chorus]

The insatiable peace
Of my quest for true serenity
No matter how hard the rain
The thirst is never ending
No matter how many friends
Or angels been sent down to take me away
They can't make it okay
And every time I feel as though I'm
Closer to the eye
The storm winds blow
I run inside, and though I feel revived-
Yes every time I feel as though I'm
Closer to the eye
The storm winds blow
I run inside, and though I feel revived-
I don't believe I'm beautiful
But least I've got my sister's smile
And I resist the muses yet
They sing to me

    General CommentActually, the title is "Still I Can't Be Still..." And the song's sorta self-explainatory.

    General CommentI love how she refers to God as "she"! The entire song is an interesting comment on the double standards and intricacies we place over ourselves while trying to find what we want and keep what we have.
