Song Lyric Sunday: Still by Alanis Morissette

This is  part  of Song  Lyric  Sunday

This  week  after  still no  let up in  Horror  and Terror ! I  am posting  Still by Alanis  Morissette. The  words  speak  for  themselves, as  does the video  and I  make  no  apologies  for  either  lyrics or  images . I  can only  add  that  we need more love and  now.

 

“Still”

I am the harm which you inflict.
I am your brilliance and frustration.
I’m the nuclear bombs if they’re to hit.
I am your immaturity and your indignance.
I am your misfits and your praised.
I am your doubt and your conviction.
I am your charity and your rape.
I am your grasping and expectation.I see you averting your glances.
I see you cheering on the war.
I see you ignoring your children,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

I am your joy and your regret.
I am your fury and your elation.
I am your yearning and your sweat.
I am your faithless and your religion.

I see you altering history.
I see you abusing the land.
I see you, your selective amnesia,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

Haaaaaaaaahh
I see you averting your glances.
I see you cheering on the war.
I see you ignoring your children,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.
I see you altering history.
I see you abusing the land.
I see you, your selective amnesia,
I love you still.
And I love you still.

I am your tragedy and your fortune.
I am your crisis and delight.
I am your profits and your prophets.
I am your art, I am your vice.
I am your death and your decisions.
I am your passion and your plight.
I am your sickness and convalescence.
I am your weapons and your light.

I see you holding your grudges.
I see you gunning them down.
I see you silencing your sisters,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.
I see you lie to your country.
I see you forcing them out.
I see you blaming each other,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

Haaaaaaaahh
I see you holding your grudges.
I see you gunning them down.
I see you silencing your sisters,
I love you still.
I love you still.
I see you lie to your country.
I see you forcing them out.
I see you blaming each other.
I love you still.
I love you still.
I see you.

    I always enjoy me some Alanis Morrisette and now even more so as her lyrics are more relevant than ever. Great post.

    I hadn’t heard this one but it is so powerful and beautiful! I don’t understand war. Hopefully never will. I’m not sure why it can’t be about loving each other. Thank you for sharing this Willow! ❤️
