The Songs : Still With You


*Finished 9/02*
Music & Words (9/02)

She... she kills me when she sings
she is the key to greater things
she's the one that I'm waiting for
and you... you're the one that I can't stand
you... you're the one that I don't even know
you won't do what I can do
but she's still with you

Why
it's not fair
you're a temporary distraction
but you're still there

She... she stands still my time
she captivates my mind
she's the one that I'm waiting for (for now)
and you... you're luckier than you know
you... you can't even comprehend
you'll be gone when you are through
but she... she's still with you
for now

Why
it's not fair
you're a temporary distraction
but you're still there

Why
it's never fair
I could be her one
but I'm not there

Background:
Lyrics: Part Two of the "Rosetti Trilogy" - about the same girl that Rebound and Christmas Card are about. sorta too whiny. and uh, I'm not quite that desperate - just a little peeved. always gotta add some extra drama. this is actually more about her boyfriend (whom she's still with, 5 years later, by the way).
Music: pretty cool opening/verse 2-chord riff into a nice little bridge thing. I dig the refrain. I really like the vocal arrangement on this one. About 4 minutes long. Start to finish, this song took less than a week to write.
