I STILL LOVE YOU
Paul Stanley, Vinnie Vincent

[Intro: Guitar only]
[Rhy. Fig 1]

[Rhy. Fig 1]
You tell me that you're leaving
And I'm trying to understand
[Rhy. Fig 2]
I had myself believing
I should take it like a man

[Rhy. Fig 3]
But if you gotta go
Then you gotta know
That it's killing me
And all the things
I never seem to show
I gotta make you see

[Rhy. Fig 4a]
Girl it's been so long
(Tell me) tell me how could it be
[Rhy. Fig 4b]
One of us knows the two of us don't belong
In each others company

[Rhy. Fig 5]
It hurts so much inside
Your telling me goodbye
You wanna be free
And knowin' that you're gone
And leavin' me behind
[Rhy. Fig 6a]
I gotta make you see
I gotta make you see
Gotta make you see

[Rhy. Fig 7]
I still love you
I still love you
I really, I really love you
I still love you
[Rhy. Fig 4a]

[Rhy. Fig 4a]
People tell me
I should win at any cost
[Rhy. Fig 4b]
But now I see as the smoke clears away
The battle has been lost

[Rhy. Fig 5]
I see it in your eyes
You never have to lie
I'm out of your life
Tonight I'll dream away
And you can still be mine
[Rhy. Fig 6a]
But I'm dreamin' a lie
Dreamin' a lie
Makes me wanna die

[Rhy. Fig 7]
'Cause I still love you
I still love you
Baby, baby I love you
I still love you

[Rhy. Fig 8]
[Rhy. Fig 4a] 
[Rhy. Fig 4b]

[Rhy. Fig 5]
And when I think of all
The things you'll never know
There's so much left to say
'Cause girl, now I see the price of losing you
[Rhy. Fig 6b]
Will be my hell to pay
My hell to pay
Each and every day
Hear what I say

[Rhy. Fig 9]
I still love you
I still love you
I really, I really love you
I still love you, baby, baby, 

[Rhy. Fig 10]
I love you
I love you
I really, I really love you
