White Lies – You Still Love Him

White Lies – “You Still Love Him” is bonus track to single “Unfinished Business”.

Lyrics for White Lies – “You Still Love Him”:

I heard an angels voice, singing in quiet prayer
It seemed to pull my heart, slowly straight up the stairs

I spent that night awake, though you lay fast asleep,
I saw a teardrop fall, gently down your cheek

You still love him but she does too, she’ll take him far away from you
You still love him but she does too, she’ll take him far away from you

I crept out of the house, and tip-toed to your room,
But found your body gone, and left was just a hollow tomb

I think at times like falling into the deepest sleep
I wake and try to move again but find my body’s rendered weak
I feel that just like …
There’s ghosts out in the square tonight screaming i want my money back

You still love him but she does too, she’ll take him far away from you
You still love him but she does too, she’ll take him far away from you

“You Still Love Him” at first appears in “Unfinished Business” single by UK band White Lies, released by Chess Club on 28 April 2008 on 7″ vinyl. It was limited to 500 copies. A re-recorded version of the song appeared on their debut album, To Lose My Life…. The most obvious difference is that the album version does not feature the high-pitched backing vocals by bassist Charles Cave during the final chorus.

The single’s B-side, “You Still Love Him”, shares its chorus melody and lyrics with the song “One Night Friend”. “One Night Friend” had previously been recorded by the band under their previous incarnation, Fear of Flying. During their 2009 European tour, White Lies began playing “You Still Love Him” live for the first time.

A bit history of White Lies:
White Lies are an English post-punk band from Ealing, London. Formerly known as Fear of Flying, the core band members are Harry McVeigh (lead vocals, guitar), Charles Cave (bass guitar and backing vocals), and Jack Lawrence-Brown (drums). The band perform live as a five-piece, when sidemen Tommy Bowen and Rob Lee join the line up. White Lies’ musical style has been described as dark yet uplifting by the media, drawing comparisons to Editors, Interpol, Joy Division, and The Killers.

White Lies formed in October 2007, after writing songs that they felt didn’t suit their original band. After delaying their first performance for five months to build up media hype, they earned a recording contract with Fiction Records days after their debut. The release of singles “Unfinished Business” and “Death” led to tours and festival appearances in the United Kingdom and North America, including a headline performance at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend and a place on the 2009 NME Awards Tour. At the beginning of 2009, White Lies featured in multiple “ones to watch” polls for the coming year, including the BBC’s Sound of 2009 poll and the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award.

White Lies’ debut album To Lose My Life…, released in January 2009, hit number one on the UK Albums Chart. Their second album Ritual was recorded in 2010, and released on 17 January 2011. Big TV, their third studio album, was released on 12 August 2013, whilst their fourth, and latest, titled Friends, was released 7 October 2016.
