"I'm Still Here" as written by and John Rzeznik....
I am a question to the world
not and 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
We want to 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

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 sleeping
While I keep on dreaming 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
We want to hold on and feel I belong
And how can they say I'll 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

    General Commenti think your lyrics are just alittle off. im not sure. i think it goes "im a boy, no im a man" ......... and later in the song i think it goes "there words are just whispers and lies that ill never believe." either way, killer song. pretty catchy and good lyrics. typical rzeznik shit.

    General CommentI agree with pool_shark930 on the lyrics. Great song, I found myself kind of feeling the words with certain situations around me.

    General CommentJohnny Rzeznik is an awesome artist. And the name Rzeznik just kicks ass too. I don't get why he recorded this under his name, because it sounds exactly like a Goo Goo Dolls song(which means very good). But whatever, its quite amazing. As for the meaning, im just assuming its about being who you are and living your life that way. Not doing what everyone else wants you to do.
    Just thought I should add that this song is from the movie "Treasure Planet".

    General CommentIf I'm ever down, this song can pick me up again. To me it's about finding yourself, becoming an individual, staying true to your beliefs and values while everyone else's are changing around you.

    General CommentI can listen to this song over and over again, and not get tired of it. I burned it onto a CD, and listen to it a few times everyday, when I am just sitting around in my room, writing and thinking. I think that Johnny Rzenik is talking about how you should be who you are, and not listen to the world around you, not let them change you. I can definetly relate to this song.

    General CommentThis song is basically my "Life song" I love it and ever since I heard it I was amazed.
    Anyways, I think this song is about finding who you are and all the obstacles that you face.
    It is one of the best songs of all time.

    General CommentI love this song... I agree with everyone on the meaning... It's very relateable. I love the line "And how can the world want me to change | They're the ones that stay the same"... I think it's a great part of the song.
