I'm Still Here

It’s been a long time

Well fancy seeing you again

I never thought we’d circle back around

But look where we’ve found ourselves now

 

All I want to do is just believe that you and me could be something

We never even gave ourselves a chance

I told myself that I would never let you get to me again

But I don’t want this to be the end

 

So let me be completely clear

If your heart is still open

I’m still here

 

And I knew

The last time I saw you

Things would never be the same

But looking back

That wouldn’t be the worst thing

In our case

 

All I want to do is just believe that you and me could be something

We never even gave ourselves a chance

I told myself that I would never let you get to me again

But I don’t want this to be the end

 

So let me be completely clear

If your heart is still open

I’m still here

 

But not for long

I’ve already moved on once before, now

 

All I want to do is just believe that you and me could be something

We never even gave ourselves a chance

I told myself that I would never let you get to me again

But I don’t want this to be the end

 

So let me be completely clear

If your heart is still open

I’m still here, I’m still here

Same Page

I think we’re on the same page

Don’t wanna have a conversation cuz we want nothing to change

Labels are just simple words

But translate to complication in this social world, but I want 

Nothing to change

 

I just want to say

You're still growing on me everyday

And I just have to say

I’d like to be the only face you see when you wake

 

Well the other night it flooded

I got stuck, I couldn’t pick you up, just the worst of luck

So I waded to the pub across the street

An hour later you showed up with soaking feet, wait, so

You walked miles in the rain just to see my face? Well,

 

I just want to say

You're still growing on me everyday

And I just have to say

I think we’re on the same page

 

You kissed my cheek to dry my tears

I hadn’t opened up like that in years

What are you doing to me?

I’ve been afraid for so long

But you took my hands and you held on

Now all I want to do is hold on too

To hold onto you, oh

 

I just want to say

You're still growing on me everyday

And I just have to say

I’d like to be the only face you see when you wake

The Trip

Today was JFK

New York City back to New Orleans

Newlyweds and businessmen

There were architects and soccer teams

and mothers and best friends

Noisy hustle and bustle, rushing

through security to the shuttle

So much noise through all the crazy

till you're silent once you're in your seat on the airplane

Then all the stress from the day

all of a sudden just dissipates

Cause when you make it above the clouds

nothing matters until you're back on the ground

Maybe then a stranger will become a friend

even if you'll never meet again

Cause when you make it above the clouds

nothing matters until you're back on the ground

As you touch down

allow reality to come back round

Anticipate familiar faces

let the escalator take you down to your embraces

Grab your bags

and take a quick look back

Yes the trip is always magical

but you've never been happier to finally get home

In This Moment

My parents always told me to be

Whatever I wanted to be 

To make whatever I could of my life

I promise I’m gonna try

 

And now I’m sitting on this airplane wondering

How the following days

Will guide me on this journey 

And take me to the perfect place

 

And in this moment, in this very moment

I’m alone. And it’s beautiful

In this moment, in this very moment

I’m alone. And it’s beautiful

 

Now I sit on my regular seat on this bus

Unsure of where to go

But I suppose I’ll just go with the flow

I’m sure I’ll enjoy every moment

 

So I rest my head on the glass

Just trying to grasp how the following days

Will guide me on this journey 

And take me to the perfect place

 

And in this moment, in this very moment

I’m alone. And it’s beautiful

In this moment, in this very moment

I’m alone. And it’s beautiful

 

And all my fears of getting real

Just seem to sneak right out the door

Because I know this is exactly what

My soul’s been searching for

 

And in this moment, in this very moment

I’m alone. And it’s beautiful

In this moment, in this very moment

I’m alone. And it’s beautiful

 

Because I know this is exactly what 

My soul’s been searching for
