Absolutely Still

Album: Paper Empire (2009)
  • Better Than Ezra are a New Orleans based rock trio. This song was the lead single from their seventh album Paper Empire.
  • This song reflects on the fragility of love and relationships. Frontman Kevin Griffin remarked in publicity materials that this song, "is about when you're with someone, and you have those fleeting moments of clarity when everything is right between the two of you, and you can block out all the chaos and noise outside. You don't have to say anything and everything is understood. Before it all goes wrong, there are all those perfect moments of bliss."
