Song of the Day #4,762: ‘Are You Still in Love With Me?’ – Tift Merritt

My father’s birthday fell in the middle of the week, which paired him up with my Rock & Roll Hall of Fame post on Joan Jett. Not a bad place to land.

My mother’s birthday is today, a Random Weekend day, which provides me with one of those opportunities to spin the wheel and honor her with a mystery track.

This last happened on June 20, which was both Father’s Day and my older daughter’s birthday. The Random iTunes Fairy served up a Billy Joel song that day, a nice treat for both of them.

Let’s see what my dear Mom gets…

‘Are You Still in Love With Me?,’ a lovely country heartbreak ballad by Tift Merritt from her debut album, 2002’s Bramble Rose. This is a neat song in that it’s not from the perspective of the dump-ee, but of the regretful dump-er.

I would have preferred something a little more upbeat for the occasion, but at least it’s by one of my favorites.

After everything I told you
After how I said it’d be
After all I did to hurt you
Are you still in love with me?

Are you still in love with me?
Are you still in love with me?
Without my kiss are you lonely?
Are you still in love with me?

When you walk a street of strangers
When you stop and look for free
When you think about tomorrow
Are you still in love with me?

Are you still in love with me?
Are you still in love with me?
Without my kiss are you lonely?
Are you still in love with me?

Is it just now that we are leavin’?
Is it the age of harder times?
That makes what never satisfied me
Look loving and fine

Does this mean that it’s real?
Does this mean that I’m through?
I wake up late at night
Thinking that I still love you

Are you still in love with me?
Are you still in love with me?
Without my kiss are you lonely?
Are you still in love with me?
Are you still in love with me?

    Lol! Always more important that the giver likes the gift more than the recipient.😀 Will you be giving the Tift Merritt anthology to your mom later today?😝
