"A Stain To Never Fade" as written by David James Ford, Jo Louise Taylor and Glenn Russell Hooper....
You'll always be to me
A stain to never fade
The worst mistake I've made

A blemish on an otherwise detestable career
A studied insincere

But I'll always be to you
A record overplayed
The rain on your parade

Will you never look at me
And see beautiful again
I would I were the same

But I look for always
I don't want to understand
To make it go away
Or hush myself when I just want to say
Will you never be to me
A surface kind of friend
I do believe that this is not the end

It's not the end
I'll always be to you
A stain to never fade
The worst mistake you've made

An episode to file under "never try again"
I would I were the same

But I want to be your adrenaline
The redness across your chest
Oh lover I confess

Though you'll always be to me
A stain to never fade
I'd do it all again

Because I look for always
And still I stand with the persistence of an idiot
Still I stand will I say

Hell, I do believe that this is not the end

    General CommentNot quite so simple as that; a lasting impression yes, but not a positive one. "Worst mistake I've made": evidently aware that the relationship was a bad idea... but, it'd seem, a mistake he'd be more than happy to repeat. The lyrics are reasonably straightforward: "I would I were the same" - may wish he could just put the (mess of a) relationship out of mind, but cannot.

    General Commenthmm...i love this song, it's amazing. i agree with ***Mooq, i think it's about a relationship that has turned sour, but he feels he would do it all again

    'though you'll always be to me
    a stain to never fade
    i'd do it all again'

    General Comment"an episode to file under "never try again" "
    maybe i've misunderstood this bit but he doesnt't seem to want to try it again, it seems it was something he did, perhaps that caused the break up or whatever that he woudl do again, not the relationship itself

    General CommentI think this song is about a one night stand with a friend, who they think is right for them but deep down they know they aren't and the main reason they think thy're right for them is because their 'time' together was so good. But the problem is the other person involved seems to be regretting it happening. The person knows it was a mistake to jepordise their friendship and they tell themselves it was a mistake,BUT they'd do it all over again.
