Barry Manilow Even Now Lyrics

Last updated: 02/13/2013 09:22:59 AM

Even Now
When there's someone else who cares
When there's someone home who's waiting just for me
Even now I think about you as I'm climbing up the stairs
And I wonder what to do so she won't see
That even now
When I know it wasn't right
And I found a better life than what we had
Even now I wakeup crying in the middle of the night
And I can't believe it still could hurt so bad

Even now when I have come so far
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it's still so hard without you
Even now when I come shining through
I swear I think of you
And how I wish you knew
Even now

Even now
When I never hear your name
And the world has changed so much since you been gone
Even now I still remember and the feeling's still the same
And this pain inside of me goes on and on
Even now

Even now when I have come so far
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it's still so hard without you
Even now when I come shining through
I swear I think of you
And God I wish you knew
Some how
Even now

Our love endures...Even now... | Reviewer: Even now | 2/5/13

Even now, he just called to wish me good night and how much he loves me one more time as he is getting ready to climb the stairs leading to the bedroom that he shares with his wife. Our hearts are in pieces...It doesn't get better with time, it gets worse. He introduced me to this song almost 3 years ago. He explained to me that this song expressed his feelings every time he has to climb those stairs after work. We are so much happier when we are together. We fell in love when I was only 14 and him 16...we each went our separate ways, got married, had children, only to find each other again 30 years later. Our love is stronger than ever, but life gets harder every night as he climbs those stairs for the kids that he does not want to lose...We are hanging in there waiting and hoping for a miracle even now...

Memories that last forever | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/9/13

I was married to my true love but our parents and life got in the way. We were divorced and I later married a man whom I have been married for 47 years with. I love him but not in love with. I have always wondered what happend with my first love. Lo and behold, he got a hold of me as he had been searching for me too. We met and spent 6 hrs together. Now he is back in his own life and I am in mine, the feelings are still there and wish they weren't. Luckily we dont live close but wish I could stop thinking about him.

Lost love | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/23/13

This song makes me think of Alan, my first love. I was 17 and he was 23 when we met. We worked away together for 3 years, got engaged and almost made it to the altar however for the wrong reasons....a job. I started to grow up and change and grew away from him and we split up. I married and had 2 children and he lived with a woman and had a daughter. I never stopped thinking about him and always knew we would meet again someday. 20 years later we got in touch through an internet site, my marriage was on the rocks and he was single. We met up, found we were still in love and we started a new life together, which disastrously due to pressures of kids, jobs etc it failed.5 years later I have now remarried but do still keep in touch with him and he tells me he is still in love with me and always will be and has been for almost 30 years now. I love my husband but never stop thinking of Alan, my first love and wishing it had worked out. I still have the feeling that we will meet up again, maybe even in another life, and hope that third time round it will be meant to be.

the love of my life | Reviewer: ed | 4/26/12

I went to Las Vegas last July, 2011 and saw Manilow perform this song. Out of nowhere, these memories came back to me of a girl I dated when I was 18, she was 21.The year was 1982. We dated for only 2-3 months, but I never forgot her. We chose different paths, we both married different people, but after hearing this song, I was so moved to try and contact her. It took until December, 2011 to look for her online, and I found her! I have been thinking of her off and on for 30 years. I am now going thru a divorce and she has been divorced since 2005. We have reconnected!- she is my soulmate, my friend, My love of my life as well as the woman of my dreams. Since december, everything that has happened between us has been a dream. She is even more beautiful now than she was back then, and I cannot believe she remembered me as well as loves me!. Yes, dreams do come true, even now

The most tragic loss of my life | Reviewer: Laura Bone | 2/1/12

I recently lost the one and only true love I'll ever have. We planned to be together for the rest of our lives but unfortunately circumstances forced him to make a tragic decision that ruined both our lives. I can't believe how extreme the sadness and pain are for me, and when I listened to the lyrics of this song I wondered if he was feeling this way. Is he missing me as much as I miss him? This is a truly beautiful song ... but a very sad one.

still in love with my STBEx | Reviewer: michelle puni | 12/22/11

Even now, 6 months after i left, as happy as i know i can be with the new love interest, i can't seem to let my past go. He was my one true love. I met him when I was 17 turning 18 and was with him for 10 years. I'm trying to move on with my life (I chose this path), and know he should move on with his, but I know the tragedy will be that I left my soul mate, and he was too proud to stop me from leaving.

It's hard... to live and to hate yourself for loving someone you shouldnt..Or you should but years ago..Knowing that there is something between you.. that you are affraid to look into each-others eyes..
And knowing that.. he is in a relationship at moment, knowing that he would be happier with that third person..Knowing that the best thing for all is to let things go...
That really is hard to do.. To defeat yourself, and find strenght to go on..
And its even more difficult, if you see that person often..and if that person is close friend...........

My heart is empty without you here with me | Reviewer: barbara pavese | 8/20/11

It has been 10 years since my husband died from cancer. We were married for 20 years. Our marriage was beautiful, our love so happy. I can not, even up until this very moment, get over him being taken away from me. The hurt will never go away. Barry Manilow wrote the words that I feel so strongly.

Even Now | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/8/11

Whenever I hear this song, tears burst down my cheeks when he sings:
"Even now, when I never hear your name. And the world has changed so much since you been gone.
Even now I still remember and the feeling's still the same
And the pain inside of me goes on and on
Even now".
I had to divorce the love of my life because of abuse, but have been in love with him since I was 13 (am 53 and married). Although I couldn't stay with him, I am still madly in love with him and always will be.

Even Now | Reviewer: carole | 4/12/11

Even now - after separation, divorce and death I still think of my husband with love. He was my first true love, my first everything. I pray we meet in paradise. He lived up to promise - he would always love me n no other woman would fill my shoe. We re-did our vow n the love is still strong. Even now!

True Love | Reviewer: Vivian | 3/6/11

Having been married for so many years with the wrong person out of obligation and culture...I would hear this song back then and think of my Mickey. My first kiss, my first everything...who would have thought that one day came a knock at my door and it was a baker with a cake that read" Happy Birthday my love, from Mickey", to my surprise I could only think of him, but it was impossible, then at 12:00pm same day another knock and it was a florist, with beautiful huge tropical flowers and a card that said" I have always loved you, Mickey', my heart was slamming in my chest- at 4:00pm the florist came back with a huge teddy bear and a card that read" I am sending my friend to take care of you until I see you again" Two weeks later we were on our honeymoon, and our love is greater than ever...dreams come true even now.

Even now! | Reviewer: rcj | 3/3/11

My recent situation makes me ponder sometimes. Im already with someone I can say I really love today but at some point of everyday, memories of my past visits me and realized that I'm still in love with my past. This shocking realization makes me hate myself more often than not. I feel like I'm fooling myself all these days but I'm just but human, i commit mistakes sometimes if not all the time. Even if I'm happy with my partner today, at the end of the day sometimes i still hope that i can still be with my past. Darn i hate this feeling!!!!

Even Now | Reviewer: Etteine | 2/1/11

Every time I hear this song, my tears fall. This song leads me to my past. I married the person whom I think would love me so much. I got married with him not because I love him but because I feel I am secure in his love…. But 12 years had passed.. I am not comfortable anymore with his love because I can feel that he has another woman…. My feelings had changed when I met the person whom I feel, I am love so much. He showed so much love for me. I am very important to him. He knew how to appreciate my achievements. I can exchange ideas with him without arguments and hesitations. I did not feel this kind of love from my husband. We had been in a relationship for more than 5 years now… But things changed… He met another girl, I do not know if she is the right girl for him since the girl is also married… He told me that he will not leave me even if he will be married to her.(the girl is planning to divorce his husband),…. He will not leave me no matter what. I am happy when I am with him… Even now he is in a relationship with the girl… We are also having a relationship. I love him… He loves me… I do not know where this relationship leads us… My husband is enjoying his life away from me… I know with someone else. He told me if I will divorce my husband, We will get married….

Even Now: memories that never fades | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/18/11

This songs reminds me of the person I had love before and until now I still do. Although there are things you wanted to happen things don't go just the way you like. I hope I can return the times I'm with him because that were the most happiest times in my life. I just wish to see him again at least to spend time again together.

YTH | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/12/10

This song reminds me of someone I loved silently for many years...because of where I was in my life (university etc) I did not confide my love to him and over the years we lost touch. I first heard this song many years ago and it brought tears to my eyes as it so describes how things have been. I love my husband very much (a different man) but I cannot forget YTH, try hard as I do. I would never leave my husband and I wish I am not torn between loving both of them.
