I Still Want You

Album: Hollow Meadows (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This song references a glass mausoleum built by 19th-century eccentric Horatio Bright to house his dead wife and son ("If you stare through the glass from moment to moment. It's funny what you find").
  • The song includes both a Mellotron and Nancy Kerr's viola. Hawley told Uncut: "The Mellotron is a lovely sound. It has a unique sound all its own, nothing really like strings, but Nancy put emotion back into the party."
