Still, I Miss You

-->
I wonder where you are and how you’re doing. Are you at the place where my longing could reach? Maybe, maybe, do you long for me with the same hopes too? Still, I miss you. It’s so hard for me without you, everything is hard. In each moment I breathe, thoughts of you torture me. I try and I try but your traces come back to life, and I’m afraid.” –Infinite, Still I Miss You [translated lyrics]

Infinite merilis sebuah lagu berjudul “Still I Miss You” sebagai second promotional single dari mini album keempat mereka, “New Challenge”. Menyusul perilisan album tersebut pada tanggal 21 Maret 2013, single “Still I Miss You” dirilis pada tanggal 25 April 2013. Lagu pop ballad mid-tempo ini diciptakan oleh songwriter Hwang Hyun, mulai dari penulisan lirik, aransemen musik, hingga produksinya. Sebagai satu-satunya lagu bernuansa ballad dalam album ini, “Still I Miss You” menghadirkan sisi sendu dari Infinite, yang jarang ditemui dalam lagu-lagu hits mereka.
Have you ever long for someone? Miss him/her so bad that you feel like dying? But you know, that the worst part is not the longing itself, it’s the fact that you’re unable to tell that person directly that you miss him/her. Yes, that kind of feeling. Rasa itulah yang disampaikan dalam lirik lagu “Still I Miss You”. You keep thinking and thinking all over again. The thoughts are lingering in your mind. You keep feeling and feeling all over again. The feelings are haunting you in every breath that you take. You can’t get rid of it no matter how hard you try. You can’t let go of it no matter how long it takes the time. You keep wondering and wondering all over again. Where is that person now? How is he/she doing? Do they feel the same way too? Kebersamaan sesingkat apapun, akan menimbulkan makna yang mendalam ketika itu terasa begitu berarti. Bahkan ketika orang itu telah menghilang dari hari-hari kita, perasaan itu akan tetap hadir dalam benak kita. Dan ketika yang tertinggal adalah rasa sesal, maka teriring harapan bahwa rasa yang belum sempat terucapkan akan dapat tersampaikan, suatu saat nanti, ketika waktunya tiba.
“Still I Miss You” dipertunjukkan secara live oleh Infinite pada comeback stage mereka dalam berbagai program acara musik televisi di Korea Selatan, untuk mengiringi lagu utama, “Man In Love”. Lagu ini mereka tampilkan sepanjang comeback week dan juga dalam goodbye stage. Infinite memang jarang merilis lagu ballad, namun sekalinya mereka melakukan itu, it never fails. Setelah “Only Tears” yang mengharu-biru, kini “Still I Miss You”, yang sedikit lebih bertempo dibandingkan “Only Tears”, berhasil merebut perhatian. Indeed, this song was a perfect choice to be a sidekick of their lead song. It’s such a heartfelt yet refreshing track, with mellow rhythm in perfect harmony of the voices of the group.

Late regrets, pointless hopes, but still, my heart wants to find you again. I miss you, I feel so sorry for you. I regret being not good enough for you. To you, to you, I long for courage to tell you those things, but where are you? Where, where are you? Are you at the place where my longing could reach?” –Infinite, Still I Miss You [translated lyrics]
