Jill Phillips Album: Writing on the Wall Track: Even Still
Even Still Lyrics
About the song: This song was written during my dad's illness but before he passed away. I was imagining what it would be like if I did have to face death, whether through my dad or even myself. Death is not a popular subject to write songs about but as Christians it is one of the main things that separates us from nonbelievers. We don't feel that death is the end, and to me this song was about framing death in that light. It can never win and it has no power over us. Writing about death, especially in light of what my family has been through this year, has really helped me get rid of my own unnecessary fears.
Well you came just like they said you would Like you always have from what I've seen and heard And you took our dreams and future plans Crushed them all like grains of sand
Even still, even still You have no power, you never will And even still, even still You have no power and you never will
Easy to say, but it's hard to live When life itself is near the end Because that fear resides in every soul When it shows its face, it's good to know
So when the hourglass is empty And there's knocking at my door I don't want my fear to grip me So I'll sing this 'till I'm sure
