I Still Feel the Ring


words and music by Rik Shafer, Claire Ulanoff, and Rick Paul

The checkered tiles are on the floor, like they used to be
Our corner booth’s still by the door, but now there’s only me
That waitress in the tight pink skirt is tryin’ to catch my eye
But I look down at my left hand, and almost want to cry
‘Cause…

I still feel the ring, though the band of gold is gone
I still feel the ring, like the day I put it on
I promised you when we said "I do" my love’s a lifetime thing
So how can I begin again when I still feel the ring

We used to joke ’bout what we’d do if the other one should go
You said I’d find someone soon, but, darlin’, that ain’t so
All I do is think of you, and the life that we had planned
‘Cause though my head knows I’ve lost you, my heart don’t understand
And…

I still feel the ring, though the band of gold is gone
I still feel the ring, like the day I put it on
I promised you when we said "I do" my love’s a lifetime thing
So how can I begin again when I still feel the ring

I close my eyes and feel your kisses
I still smell your perfume
The only thing that’s missing is you
And…

I still feel the ring, though the band of gold is gone
I still feel the ring, like the day I put it on
I promised you when we said "I do" my love’s a lifetime thing
So how can I begin again when I still feel the ring

Oh, how can I begin again
When I still feel the ring
