Johnny Rzeznik I’m Still Here Lyrics

I am a question to the world,

Not an answer to be heard

Or a moment that’s held in your arms.

And what do you think you’d ever say?

I won’t listen anyway…

You don’t know me,

And I’ll never be what you want me to be.

And what do you think you’d understand?

I’m a boy, no, I’m a man..

You can’t take me and throw me away.

And how can you learn what’s never shown?

Yeah, you stand here on your own.

They don’t know me ’cause I’m not here.

And I want a moment to be real,

Wanna touch things I don’t feel,

Wanna hold on and feel I belong.

And how can the world want me to change?

They’re the ones that stay the same.

They don’t know me,

‘Cause I’m not here.

And you see the things they never see

All you wanted, I could be

Now you know me, and I’m not afraid

And I wanna tell you who I am

Can you help me be a man?

They can’t break me

As long as I know who I am

And I want a moment to be real,

Wanna touch things I don’t feel,

Wanna hold on and feel I belong.

And how can the world want me to change?

They’re the ones that stay the same.

They can’t see me,

But I’m still here.

They can’t tell me who to be,

‘Cause I’m not what they see.

Yeah, the world is still sleepin’,

While I keep on dreamin’ for me.

And their words are just whispers

And lies that I’ll never believe.

And I want a moment to be real,

Wanna touch things I don’t feel,

Wanna hold on and feel I belong.

And how can they say I never change?

They’re the ones that stay the same.

I’m the one now,

‘Cause I’m still here.

I’m the one,

‘Cause I’m still here.

I’m still here.

I’m still here.

I’m still here.
