I’m Still Here – Vertical Horizon

I found the pieces in my hand
They were always there
It just took some time for me to understand
You gave me words I just can’t say
So if nothing else
I’ll just hold on while you drift away
Cause everything you wanted me to hide
Is everything that makes me feel alive

The cities grow the rivers flow
Where you are I’ll never know
But I’m still here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who’s gone
And I’m still here
I’m still here

You’ve seen the ashes in my heart
You smile the widest when I cry inside and my insides blow apart
I try to wear another face
Just to make you proud
Just to make you put me in my place
But everything you wanted from me
Is everything that I could never be

The cities grow the rivers flow
Where you are I’ll never know
But I’m still here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who’s gone
And I’m still here

Maybe tonight it’s gonna be alright
I will get better
Maybe today it’s gonna be okay
I will remember

I held the pieces of my soul
I was shattered
And I wanted you to come and make me whole
Then I saw you yesterday
But you didn’t notice
You just walked away

Cause everything you wanted me to hide
Is everything that makes me feel alive

The cities grow the rivers flow
Where you are I’ll never know
But I’m still here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who’s gone
And I’m still here

The lights go out the bridges burn
Once you go you can’t return
But I’m still here

Remember how you used to say
I’d be the one to run away
But I’m still here
I’m still her
