are you still a chauffeur
drivin' your body around
are you still a hunter
for yourself
'cause honey, if you're still around
honey, if you're still around

is there someone to hold you tightly
in their arms
if there's no one
then drink a glass with me
and show me what you said right now
'cause honey, if you're still around
honey, if you're still around

is there someone to hold tightly
in their arms
if there's no one
then drink a glass with me
and show me what you said right now
'cause honey, if you're still around
honey, if you're still around

honey, if you're still around
honey, if you're still around
honey, if you're still around
honey, if you're still around

    General CommentI love this song, it's so intense. I think it's basically an inner monologue, in which she's speaking to her future self.

    What makes the song particularly rattling is the way she repeats "Honey, if you're still around," escalating into screaming it toward the end of the song. That basically tells me that she's uncertain of even being alive ten years from then, and all of that inner monologue is conditional to whether or not she's "still around" ten years in the future.

    Brilliant song. The alternating tempo amps up the intensity of the words too. It's like one second she's cradling the listener in her arms, and the next she's beating them to death with her guitar. Love her.
