"Even Tho" as written by and Joseph Lyburn Arthur....
I'm getting cold
You used to have a heart
Now I guess its just a stone
You said Leave Me Alone
But even tho I'm here
You know that I'm already gone

Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone
Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone

We've got some time
So lets walk hand in hand together
And hold our heads up high
Since I can't read your mind
You've got to tell me what you're thinking
I won't write in the sky
I won't write in the sky

We're getting old
We've planted our seeds and now we wait for them to grow
You said I'll never show
You how I really feel or which way I'm gonna go

Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone
Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone

We've got some time
So lets walk hand in hand together
And hold our heads up high
Since I can't read your mind
You've got to tell me what you're thinking
I won't write in the sky
I won't write in the sky

No one to hold
The world will make a dream
And a prayer out of our bones
To find where we belong
Our shadows will remain
Even after we are gone

Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone
Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone

    General CommentI think it's about a long term relationship that went bad, he got dumped, he's pissed/hurt/angry and wants it to go further/continue because they've obviously have/had a special bond (We've planted our seeds and now we wait for them to grow) he wants it to thrive..she doesn't say a word..so cold/insensitive/secret (you used to have a heart now I guess it's a stone)...he thinks they are right for each other..and they're getting older.. doesn't want to die alone..etc. But, it seems like she's tired of a relationship that is going nowhere and is non-commital (We've planted our seeds and now we wait for them to grow You said I'll never show You how I really feel or which way I'm gonna go) He feels time is running out on life..and is now ready to commit (We're getting old)..and he doesn't want to die alone..or not be remembered/loved (No one to hold The world will make a dream And a prayer out of our bones To find where we belong Our shadows will remain Even after we are gone) She doesn't want to talk about it..and he says don't worry, I'm not going to tell anyone (Since I can't read your mind
    You've got to tell me what you're thinking I won't write in the sky) And, lastly "EVEN THO" he's still around, it sounds like she gave up on him..and he's pleading don't let go (You said leave me alone
    But even tho I'm here You know that I'm already gone)

    BEAUTIFUL SONG! MY FAV.

    General Comment"Since I can't read your mind, You've got to tell me what you're thinking, I won't write in the sky." Now that is poetry. And I'm not really even a lyric person! The string arrangement, especially at that part, is absolutely perfect for this song. I'm not sure what the song REALLY means, but I associate this song with my new love interest and how shy he is and how much I wish he would finally just open up to me! So it's a very positive association for me :)

    General CommentReally awesome song! The style during the chorus, especially vocal harmonies, etc, sounds a lot like what Fine Young Cannibals would sound like if they were still writing music today.

    General CommentRidgeback basically said what I was thinking, but phrased it much better than I could have. I agree completely. =)

    Beautiful song, one of my favorites of all time. The fact that it only has six comments is shocking, but I'm definitely okay with that. I hate it when too many people like my music. haha.
