"Still Your Song" as written by John Rzeznik and Andy John Stochansky....
I called you up ten years too late
Just to hear your voice again
And though your voice is still the same
I know that something's changed
My words are choked and full of tears
But still you listen to me dear
And someone's calling you away
And now I understand
The time that I've wasted
So bitter and faithless
Is wearing me down now
Down now

So can you hear me
Or would you sing along
Or turn me down
Forget I ever wrote this for you
So can you hear me
Or has it been too long
You know that I was wrong
And this is still your song

Turn it on and off again
And now I lost another friend
Waded through my darkest thoughts
When I was sure to drown
And now I pass you on my way
And if you stop what could I say
Apologies for yesterday
Like a fool I walk away
The time that I've wasted
So bitter and faithless
Is wearing me down now
Down now

So can you hear me
Or would you sing along
Or turn me down
Forget I ever wrote this for you
So can you hear me
Or has it been too long
I know that I was wrong
And this is still your song

All I understand
We're here and gone again
Even through a thousand sleepless nights
I filled the page with my beliefs
It's all I have to keep
Tear it up and start again

So can you hear me
Or would you sing along
Or turn me down
Forget I ever wrote this for you
So can you hear me
Or has it been too long
I know that I was wrong
And this is still your song

I don't pretend to understand
All the things I put you through
And I don't need forgiveness
But I owe one thing to you
And this is your song
This is your song

    General CommentYay first comment! :) this song is one of the best "new goo" songs! the lyrics are BEAUTIFUL! I think its about one of johnny's early girlfriends, that he never really got over. He contacted her later in life to see that she has moved on.....and he hasnt. The song is just kind of a tribute to that girl. <3

    Song MeaningThis song is awesome!
    I think the song is dedicated to someone you haven't gotten over from the past. Perhaps you hurt them in someway but you still think of them through the years and you call them up 10 years later to find that they have moved on. Sad, yet poetically beautiful.

    General CommentCompletely agree with googoogirl13. Johnny's lyrics are so heartfelt and beautiful. I can feel the emotion in his lyrics. Definitely song about a girlfriend that he lost touch with. I really envy his ability to put his thoughts into such an amazing song.

    General CommentMight be reaching here, but is it possible that this song was written for the same person either "Iris" or "Sympathy" was for? (I believe at least Sympathy was about his wife.) I'm basing this solely off of the "10 years too late" reference... it would be approx 10 years between these songs.

    I like to think thats what it is anyways.
