Song Lyric Sunday: Divisible – ‘Even Now’

Call me a sentimental old fool if you will, but there aren’t many who can hold a candle to Barry Manilow when it comes to sweepingly orchestrated power ballads, such as ‘I Write The Songs’ and ‘Can’t Smile Without You’ – and, fitting Jim’s prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday – this one.

Even Now
When there’s someone else who cares
When there’s someone home who’s waiting just for me
Even now I think about you as I’m climbing up the stairs
And I wonder what to do so she won’t see
That even now
When I know it wasn’t right
And I found a better life than what we had
Even now I wakeup crying in the middle of the night
And I can’t believe it still could hurt so bad

Even now when I have come so far
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it’s still so hard without you
Even now when I come shining through
I swear I think of you
And how I wish you knew
Even now

Even now
When I never hear your name
And the world has changed so much since you been gone
Even now I still remember and the feeling’s still the same
And the pain inside of me goes on and on
Even now

Even now when I have come so far
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it’s still so hard without you
Even now when I come shining through
I swear I think of you
And God I wish you knew
Some how
Even now

Written by Barry Manilow and Marty Panzer
