"Still" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Lady, morning's just a moment away
And I'm without you once again
You laughed at me, you said you've never needed me
I wonder if you need me now
We played the games that people play
We made mistakes along the way
Somehow I know deep in my heart, you needed me
Remembering the pain, if I must say
It's deep in my mind and locked away
But then most of all, I do love you
Still

Those memories, times I'm sure we'll never forget
Those feelings we can't put aside
For what we had, sometimes I try to understand
But it's so heavy on my mind
So many dreams that flew away, so many words we didn't say
Two people lost in a storm, where did we go, where'd we go?
Lost what we both had found, you know we let each other down
But then most of all, I do love you
Still

We played the games that people play
We made our mistakes along the way
Somehow I know deep in my heart, you needed me
'Cause I needed you so desperately
We were too blind to see, but then
Most of all, I do love you
Still

    General CommentAbsolutely, dazw! I think it's about a relationship that both parties didn't really give 100% into and hurt each other. But he still loves her and regrets how he acted in the relationship.

    General CommentThis is such a simple song, yet it's so full of passion, heartache, angst, regret, and yes, love. Anyone with an ember still alive for their true love must tear up when this plays ... I know I do :(

    General CommentOne of the moist powerful songs as far as vocal delivery
    I can still remember my mom pushing me around
    @ Fry's Food & Drug Store as a boy
    And this being on the radio, and just being like, "Wow."
    Even at the age of, like, 4, it was impacting! It was moving!
    The line "because I needed you so desperately!"
    still gets to me.

    MemoryWhenever i listen to this song, i remember my parents when they use to bring me to the movie house and have midnight snack after we watch movies every friday night. That was when they were in their mid 40s. And now that they are already in their 60's, their attitudes have totally changed. And no matter how irritating my father and how contradicting my mother may be, i still can't deny how much i love them.

    "But then most of all. I do love you.... STILL."
