"Even Now" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
Even now I can smell the clothes
Freshly from the wash
Still hot from the dryer

Even now I can smell your skin
As I wrap you in a towel
Lay you on the bed
And try to love you

Even now I can feel your arms
I can feel your breast
I can hear your songs
And I always can find you again

Even now I can feel your hand
Gently over mine
With almost no weight at all

Even now I can feel your eyes
Watch me as I strum
Much too late at night

Even now I can see you smile
I can hear you hum
I can hear you sing
And I always can find you again

Even in the dark of night
Even in the lowest light
Even as the world outside
Is spinning, and spinning

Even now I can feel your hair
Blow across my cheek
As we sit in one of two chairs

Even now I can feel your face
Resting on my chest
Wrestling for sleep
And failing at it

Even now I can see you sleep
I can see you dream
I can see you fly
And I always can find you again
And I always can find you again
And I always can find you again

    “Even Now”

    Dashboard Confessional

    Written by Christopher Carrabba


    Even now I can smell the clothes
    Freshly from the wash
    Still hot from the dryer

    Even now I can smell your skin
    To wrap you in a towel
    Lay you on the bed
    And try to love you

    Even now I can feel your arms
    I can feel your breast
    I can hear your songs
    And I always can find you again

    Even now I can feel your hand
    Gently over mine
    With almost no weight at all

    Even now I can feel your eyes
    Watch me as I strum
    Much too late at night

    Even now I can see you smile
    I can hear you hum
    I can hear you sing
    And I always can find you again

    Even in the dark of night
    Even in the lowest light
    Even as the world outside
    Is spinning, and spinning

    Even now I can feel your hair
    Blow across my cheek
    As we sit in one of two chairs

    Even now I can feel your face
    Resting on my chest
    Wrestling for sleep
    And failing at it

    Even now I can see you sleep
    I can see the dream
    I can see you fly
    And I always can find you again
    And I always can find you again
    And I always can find you again

    General CommentIt's so lovely to hear a song with just Chris and his guitar. Granted, I love EVERYTHING Dashboard has released, I'm partial to the acoustic.


    I think it's about a couple who goes through a lot- general ups and downs of any relationship, and he's singing about how he'll always come back to her.

    General CommentI love this song so much,it's so pretty.
    I think this song is self explainitary, it's about being in love
    and even they always find each other in the end if something comes up that seperates them
    probably like fights, and him being away and stuff and her not being cared for enough but hes still trying to protect her.
    like this part of the song reminds me of protection
    Even now I can smell your skin
    To wrap you in a towel
    Lay you on the bed
    And try to love you

    General CommentI believe that his girl left him.

    He is saying that he relives the happiness and love of being with her in his memories. Now that she is gone, his memories of her are all that he has left. Every time he almost forgets about her, he finds her in his memory.

    General CommentTo me, this song sounds like a father with a newborn child. He's not entirely sure where the relationship will go and he's nervous, but at the same time he knows that he will always be there for his kid.

    General CommentDefinitely sounds like it's about a baby, maybe a newborn. I think Katie's right - it sounds like it's about a new dad struggling to define his relationship with his child. Maybe the father is gone a lot, maybe on the road, and that's why it sounds as if there's distance, but he's saying that no matter how far apart they are, they're always together.

    General Commenthm. i dont think this song is about fighting and making up. i think its generally about spenging a day with someone you are in a realtionship with. and i think the part where is says, "and i can always find you again" just means that he can always count on her and he knows that tomorrow she will still be there to spend another day or whatever..
    but yeah, this song sounds great and has nice lyrics :)
