Don't forget to share!

I hear this song and my eyes close and I listen. This is not overly uncommon however, this song makes me feel it even after all this time.

The general meaning of “Still Loving You” is that the poet swears to force anything that become walls his love. He will always maintain his relation and he will always love his lady anyway. Meanwhile, the message of “Still Loving You” is true love is not only we have each other but we also have to be ready to face the walls in love together. The second message is that a mistake is a natural thing in our life but we have to change it and try to not repeat it once more, to become it is a lesson. The third message is that trusting each other is a priority in love so that we have to keep it well. In addition, the last message is a problem is a proper thing but we have to solve it well so that our relation with other is still fine. Actually, love sometime makes someone so happy and sometime, love makes someone so sad.

This song hit the charts all over the world, but it was especially popular in France, where it went to #1. In fact, it was so popular that it may have increased the population of the country. Rudolf Schenker told Song Facts: “’Still Loving You,’ the song of love, created a baby boom in France. But we didn’t believe it, either, you know? We were on a TV show in France between recordings, and the host, a very famous guy that interviews us each year, goes, ‘Hey, guys, you know that you are responsible for the baby boom in ‘85.’ We were laughing like crazy! And yes, it’s been measured by the government. It’s unbelievable, I tell you.”

Lyrics

Time, it needs time

To win back your love again

I will be there, I will be there

Love, only love

Can bring back your love someday

I will be there, I will be there

And fight, babe, I’ll fight

To win back your love again

I will be there, I will be there

Love, only love

Can break down the wall someday

I will be there, I will be there

If we’d go again

All the way from the start

I would try to change

Things that killed our love

Your pride has built a wall, so strong

That I can’t get through

Is there really no chance

To start once again

I’m loving you

And try, baby try

To trust in my love again

I will be there, I will be there

Love, our love

Shouldn’t be thrown away

I will be there, I will be there

If we’d go again

All the way from the start

I would try to change

Things that killed our love

Your pride has built a wall, so strong

That I can’t get through

Is there really no chance

To start once again

If we’d go again

All the way from the start

I would try to change

Things that killed our love

Yes, I’ve hurt your pride, and I know

What you’ve been through

You should give me a chance

This can’t be the end

I’m still loving you

I’m still loving you

I’m still loving you

I need your love

I’m still loving you

Still loving you baby

I’m still loving you

I need your love

I’m still loving you

I need your love

I need your love

I need your love

Still loving you

In an interview with Scorpions guitarist Rudolf Schenker, explained:

“I came up with the composition’s melody and everything. It took about six years of trying to get the song somehow on the album. Matthias Jabs came in with the guitar part, and the feeling was immediately right, so Klaus (Meine) noticed it was right. Therefore, he wanted to write something very special. He told me about how one day he went out into the fields in the snow, and it was then that he came up with the lyrics. He came back home and threw them down, and here we are. It’s a story about a love affair where they recognized it may be over, but let’s try again. It’s the old story; always the old story. I mean, what can we use? We can’t reinvent the wheel. What we always do, is say something which has already been said many times, in our own way.”
