"Still" as written by and Hawkins/smith/absolam....
In my last years with him there were bruises on my face
In my dawn a new day
I finally got away
But my head's all messed up and he knows just what to say
No more dawn and new days
I'm goin back to stay
So why say bye bye
When it only makes me cry
I still
Light up like a candle burnin' when he calls me up
I still
Melt down like a candle burnin' every time we touch
Oh say what you will
He does me wrong and I should be gone
But I still
Be lovin' you baby and it's much too much

We are goin down
'Cause you're always getting high
And your crumbs of lovin'
No longer get me by
Wow! It get better every time that we get high
Then your crumbs of lovin'
They somehow get me by
Why, say bye bye
When it only makes me cry
I still
Light up like a candle burnin' when he calls me up
I still
Melt down like a candle burnin' every time we touch
I still
Light up like a candle burnin' when he calls me up
I still
Melt down like a candle burnin' every time we touch
Oh say what you will
He does me wrong and I should be gone
I be lovin' you baby and it's much too much

Can't I go my severed way?
Some rain for my sunny day
Not even one reason to stay
Why?
I should've left you
Why?
I can't forgetcha baby
Why?
Ever since I metcha it's
Why?
I still

I still
Light up like a candle burnin' when he calls me up
I still
Melt down like a candle burnin' every time we touch
I still
Light up like a candle burnin' when he calls me up
I still
Melt down like a candle burnin' every time we touch
I still
He does me wrong and I should be gone
I be lovin' you baby and it's much too much

    General Commentthis is a devastating song that gets into the psyche of the battered woman. I often wonder how a woman can stay in an abusive relationship ... and I think this song explains a lot of it. of course - what do I know? I think that's what this song is about, though...

    General CommentI don't think you have to take this song literally - as about a relationship where there is violence involved. I guess, when you're sick of being lonely you stick to every little bit of love you get and even if the person you're with doesn't treat you right you're justifying him/her because you're too scared of being all alone again. sad but true...
