I’m Still Here


 

I hide behind a smile but I’m bitter in the blood

I try to see the bright side while holding back the flood

If there’s a way to seize the day it’s buried deep inside

Freedom is the dream that fuels the need to stay alive

And I’m still here

I set my sights on glory so I wandered off to war

I made myself a casualty of always wanting more

Behind the eyes that guide me there’s a fear that never sleeps

Hope affirmation isn’t what it used to be

And I’m still here

Just a tiny little whisper in the universe’s ear

I’m still here

Just a little speck of dust with a moment in the sun

Yes, I’m still here

I left a trail of breadcrumbs so I could find a way back home

But when I finally got there, I found myself alone

I built me up a pedestal and I gave it everything

But everything is nothing, and nothing’s what it seems

Yes, I’m still here

Just a tiny little whisper in the universe’s ear

I’m still here

Just a little speck of dust with a moment in the sun

Yes, I’m still here
