"Even Now" as written by and William Fitzsimmons....
How long should I wait
Before I let you go?
How long should I decide?

Whose side should I take
When both of us were wrong?
When we both share the blame

Oh, but I love you, even still, even now
Even though we fell apart, even still, even now
But I hope we'll meet again

Whose eyes will you look in
When love is in your heart?
Whose hand will hold your ring?

Whose voice will serenade
To help your baby sleep?
To make it all okay

Oh, but I love you, even still, even now
Even though we fell apart, even still, even now
And I hope we'll meet again

Even still, even now
Even though we fell apart, even still, even now
And I hope you'll be okay

    General CommentA straight forward question where the speaker is asking how long it will take before he cuts his loses. He admits that he still loves his ex-wife and hopes to meet again, perhaps to reconcile. (or implicitly to meet his daughter - which we learn his ex is pregnant with in the previous song, "Just not eachother")- and sing her to sleep.

    My Interpretation(Track 8 from the album The Sparrow and the Crow)

    Of the five steps of morning (denial, anger, bargaining, despair, acceptance) acceptance is the most agonizing. All of the past emotions must be reconciled. This song highlights this.

    The “I hope we’ll meet again” plea laced throughout the song reveals the denial and the bargaining that continually fight against acceptance.
    The “Whose eyes will you look in when love is in your heart…” verse reveals the anger (expressed as muted jealousy) that still stirs his heart.
    The “Whose side should I take when both of us are wrong,” verse reveals a level of acceptance as he expresses the realization that he continues to make mistakes, but that ultimately (in nearly every marriage) both parties contribute to a divorce.
    The question “How long should I wait before I let you go” verse reveals suggests that he is reticent to leave the despair he feels.

    Despair isn’t a wonderful place. It is a safe place. One doesn’t need to live life. One can still nurture vain hopes. Anger and frustration have ready justification. Past dreams are reviewed, relived, and recycled. No one can hurt you there, because you are already hurt.

    This song captures the struggle of acceptance with haunting beauty.
