I'm Still Here (demo)

from Rough Squatch by Quartjar



Lyrics by our benefactor Earl Nemo


She was a chapped-nipple beauty
Used to tape back her big ears
Hung hippie boots on the shower bar
Left them there for years
Champagne bottles at the foot of her bed
Collected all her tears
One day she poured the bathtub full
Crawled in and disappeared

Some said something was wrong with her
Some said I didn't belong with her
I don't know but
I wish she still were here

A buxom brown-eyed small town girl
With a heart of gold
We were too young to know any better
Too old to leave it alone
We ran off to the countryside
Tried to build a home
One day she climbed inside her mind
And left me all alone

I didn’t know how to follow her
Seems like time just swallowed her
It’s okay
But i wish she were still here

-- mini-jam --

West-end princess found me wandering
Caught me unaware
Took me to her castle
I was happy there
But i didn't want to be the king
Kings aren't allowed to smile
She forgot she ever knew me
Banished and exiled

Maybe we tried too hard to dream
Maybe it just wasn’t meant to be
Either way
I wish she were still here

Hairy-legged hippie girl
Gave name to all the stars
Picked jesus mushrooms in the meadow
Sold 'em in the bars
She never believed i believe in her
And never believed in me
But i'm not going anywhere
Got no place else to be

Seems like a awful waste of time
Nothing to lose, nothing to find
Anyway I wish
She had stayed here

I'm still here
I am still here
Smilin' like a bastard
I'm still here
