"Still" as written by and Jack Steadman....
Hey C-murder, who you who you hang with?
Say Lil' Kevin Boy, you know I'm still makin' moves with thugs

Part two nigga, ha ha all dem thugs get em up out there nigga
I leave the house ten o'clock and jump in my lac
Call my niggas fiend N Mac 'cause they got my back
And even the one time you was tryin' to hack
I still pack a strap and recock my gat
Eliminatin' all my enemies tryin' to blind me
I'm still makin' moves but it's hard to find me
Steadily gettin' richer pursuin' my dreams
I just cashed a check for three million D's
I told why all niggas last year don't play no games
Got dem no limit niggas out there callin' my name
Went from sneakin' in stores to dem sell out shows
Went from crime to rhyme already did my time
I say you don't want to go to war wit me
I got hot boy n' big swoll wit me
Just some more ghetto muthafuckas ridin' wit me
'Cause makin' moves wit thugs is a hobby


All my homies know that deal
If you thuggin' keep it real
Don't forget to pack that steel
In case we got some caps to peel
You know that deal this thug's for real
We pack that steel, got caps to peel

How many niggas want to ride wit me?
Throw a party thug girls get wild wit me,
It's involved wit green nigga bother P
Fifty-six million like they lottery,
From the Charlotte Hornets to MTV
How many patnas do you see when I'm on TV?
And if I get cut I'm gonna buy that team
'Cause I made my money from that triple beam
I lived that life of a dealer nigga hangin' wit killas
I fucked around and come back to slangin' keys
But that's alright cause these niggas get paid
Young niggas gonna be thugs to the grave

    General Commentthis is probably one of the most beautiful songs i have ever listened to.

    i may be wrong, but i think it's that the person he loved turned into something she said she'd never be. she broke her promises and it hurt him. he told her how he's feeling ("all throughout the morning though
    I'm begging no") and apparently she doesn't care anymore ("your lips they stay perfectly still"). then this third person appears and he feels even worse because he gives her everything he couldn't give her ("did he fill the empty spaces. was he everything I'm not?").

    General Comment“I wrote this in Hamburg. It’s the most personal song, really naked. It’s about getting cheated on. I sent it to our manager and he was speechless. I thought, ‘Thats exactly what i wanted." - Jack Steadman

    I can't get over how heartbreakingly beautiful this song is. It's just completely raw. One of my favourites from the brilliant new album.

    General CommentIts the question we all want to know when love ends .... "why" Even though there is no way to explain and no answer will be good enough.

    I love the simplicity his lyrics yet they say so much. I agree its the ending of a relationship he felt that would never end. Seems like he may taken her love for granted, thinking it would always be there and then it was gone in what seems like an instant.

    General CommentThis is heartwrenchingly close to a personal experience of mine.
    Everybody has standards and promises in love, that you should never break. The promise of you to another and nobody else. But when this promise is broken... So is a heart.

    "she" has broken these promises with another man, thrown them down because of "just three words".

    The questions are asked:
    "Did he fill the empty spaces
    was he everything I'm not?"

    But of course she has nothing to say... Her lips stay still. She just walks out the door without saying a word.
    This song so perfectly portrays that heartache and feeling of being lost.

    My OpinionI think this song is clearly about cheating

    "Held your standards close to heart
    but late one night you threw them down
    Simple promises you said you'd never break
    but now you have"
    The girl he loved turned into the person she promised she would never be, a cheater.

    "All throughout the morning though
    I'm begging no
    your lips they stay perfectly still"
    This is the part about the confrontation. He finds out that she cheated on him, and he's heartbroken, asking for it to be a lie, but of course she has nothing to say and her lips "stay perfectly still".

    "Did he fill the empty spaces
    was he everything I'm not?
    There's no force behind my mouth
    but in just three words
    he brings you down"
    This is where the questions are asked, where he wonders what the person who she chetead with had that he didn't, if that person was able to give her what he couldn't and also how the power of "just three words" changed her completly breaking all of her promises.

    "There's a movement
    out the door
    I swear but no
    your lips they stay perfectly still"
    This it's the end of it all. I think he still expects an answer to why she did it, but she knows that she could never say what he wated to hear so she just walks out the door without saying anything.

    I honestly think this is the best song by Bombay Bicycle Club and what I love the most about it besides these beautiful lyrics it's the fragility of his voice when he sings it, 'cause he shows every bit of pain and sadness that a person on this situation would feel.
