I'm Still Here

I'm Still Here Lyrics

I was born with the brightest of futures 
Drawn in the most majestic plans 
Brilliant statehouse, the host of royalty 
The head and the heart of the land 
But the capital was moved, my glory days were through 
My sweetest dreams were not to be 
The work was ended on my beautiful design 
But it was not the end of me .

(Chorus)
I'm still here and I will tell the stories
In this place where they never have to end  
I've come to know that when I tell the stories 
They live on with every new found friend .

All my glory went up north to my sister 
And everybody let me be, 
My red stone exposed, a discarded, dusty rose 
Rougher than I'd ever planned to be 
A jail for the drinkers, a school for the preachers
A shelter for a hidden printing press 
And maybe your grandma twirled across my dance floor
in her finest handmade dress .

​I'm still here and I will tell the stories
In this place where they never have to end 
I've come to know that when I tell the stories 
They live on with every new found friend 
And I'm still here, where stories never end  .

Come to me, come to remember 
Come to me, stay for just a spell 
Come to hear this unfinished legacy 
Come to know your home so well .

I'm still here and I will tell the stories
In this place where they never have to end 
I've come to know that when I tell the stories 
They live on with every new found friend 
And I'm still here, where stories never end
