"Still" as written by Elena Veronica Tonra and Igor Alexandre Haefeli....
I'll wrap up my bones
And leave them
Out of this home
Out on the road

Two feet standing on a principle
Two hands longing for each others warmth
Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats
Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go

It's spiraling down
Biting words like a wolf howling
Hate is spitting out each others mouths
But we're still sleeping like we're lovers

Still with feet touching
Still with eyes meeting
Still our hands match
Still with hearts beating

Still with feet touching
Still with eyes meeting
Still our hands match
Still with hearts beating

Still with feet touching
Still with eyes meeting
Still our hands match
Still with hearts beating

Two feet standing on a principle
Two hands digging in each others wounds
Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats
Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to move

It's spiraling down
Biting words like a wolf howling
Hate is spitting out each others mouths
But we're still sleeping like we're lovers

Still with feet touching
Still with eyes meeting
Still our hands match
Still with hearts beating

Still with feet touching
Still with eyes meeting
Still our hands match
Still with hearts beating

Still with feet touching
Still with eyes meeting
Still our hands match
Still with hearts beating

I'll wrap up my bones
And leave them
Out of this home
Out on the road

Two feet standing on a principle
Two hands longing for each others warmth
Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats
Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go

    My InterpretationI also see it as the death of a relationship, but I feel it more as if it's about the fear of its real end.
    The love was once so strong that maybe they hope that staying together they could love each other again, searching for a sign by the other that something is changing in positive, but it's just like continuing the agony and fueling the bad feelings that are replacing the love.
    They're both afraid to be the one to say "stop, it's over", 'cause they're aware that after that there will be no coming back.

    My InterpretationThis song is so beautiful. I can't get it out of my head. Anyway, this is what I think it's about:
    I think it's about two people that have fallen out of love with each other, but feel like they have to try and be together. It's the last moments of a relationship, a relationship's dying breaths.
    The relationship is failing, but the two people feel they have to stay together because in reality, they don't know what they would do without the other person. They want to be together, but their hearts are preventing them from loving the person.
    "Still with feet touching
    Still with eyes meeting
    Still our hands match
    Still with hearts beating"
    They're pretending they are still in love, it's a show for the public, and themselves.

    So yeah, that's the idea I was getting.

    My InterpretationLike so many, I think this is about two people falling out love with each other, but still clinging to the ghosts of the love they once shared. I was in this exact situation, living with a boyfriend for two years, the last six months was a living imitation of this song. I'm not even sure I could describe it any better than this song does. Laying in bed next to someone you used to adore, both of you awake pretending the other one isn't, both craving intimacy if only to bring back that love...but it never does. The words behind words, the viciousness that feeling trapped in a dead relationship brings out, it just spreads like poison. Eventually we parted ways and I left when I just couldn't do it without losing everything of myself,but it was hard to get to the point that I could separate from someone who had a hand in every part of my life. Not just emotionally, but financially as well. I think that's a big part that makes you feel like you have nowhere to go. You're living with someone, sharing financial responsibility, and if you're young or don't have a lot of money saved, it really does leave you in a prison you made yourself when a relationship dies. Anyways, that's my interpretation.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a process of falling out of love but not necessarily because of the lack of love. I think that the love is still strong but they both stand on different principles and after different things. They may be a very different, very opposite individuals to begin with but fell madly in love and these differences are causing them to hurt each other - unintentionally;
    "Two feet standing on a principle
    Two hands digging in each others wounds"

    While this: "Two feet standing on a principle
    Two hands longing for each others warmth"
    I think shows that no matter how different they are they still need each other and can't seem to let go, making the relationship somewhat unhealthy.

    That's what I think at least. I really adore this song, very beautifully written.
