How Still My Love

How Still My Love (Remastered)

YouTube

Still the same old story
What price glory
You make it easy
In the still of the night
In the still of the night
How still my love
In the still of the night
How still my

Doing all you can for me
They say you’re not the man for me
Don’t make it easy
In the still of the night
In the still of the night
How still my love
In the still of the night
How still my love

Standing in the doorway
Watching out to sea
Calling out to me
You go your way
Go on go on
But you don’t forget me
Oh no you don’t forget me
Oh no my lonely one
You’re doing all you can for me
They say you’re not the man for me
Don’t I make it easy
In the still of the night
It’s me talking to you

How still my love
In the still of the night
How still my love
In the still of the night
It’s me that’s talkin’ to you
In the still of the night

About the Song

“I really don’t write extremely sexual songs, never have. I’m always going to write about the bouquets and the flowers [laughs]. But ‘How Still My Love’ really is a sexy song, and being that it’s one of my few sexy songs, when we do it onstage it’s fun. It’s kind of woozy and it’s slow, but it’s got a really great beat—kind of a strip-tease, a little burlesque, a little Dita Von Teese-y. The title actually came from two different books I saw in some hotel, one was called How Still My Love and one was called In the Still of the Night, and I used both, but I never even opened up the books [laughs], so I have no idea what they were about. Whenever I come into a room with a library, in a hotel or whatever, I pull them all down and just sit — I get a lot of ideas that way.” (EW, 2009)
