you’re still here lyrics – jill johnson

it’ll be twelve months to the day
and an hour since you left me
eleven months three weeks since i left town
first stop was tendin’ bar down in baton rouge
thinkin’ i could get away from you
but you were on my mind every time i turned around
so then i went to austin, texas then phoenix
then i flew outta lax
lord i can’t believe it’s been a year
i keep leavin but you’re still here

touched down in seattle waited tables in a coffee shop
i tried me hand down in reno dealin’ cards
i took a bus to try my luck on the east coast
spent some time week with my blues in chicago
but eveywhere i went you were in my heart
i almost thought i lost you in d.c. but in boston
your memory caught up with me
for every mile i’ve cried a million tears
i keep leavin’ but you’re still here

so if you’re wonderin’ why i’m
standing on your doorstep
it’s cause you never left
i’m here to ask you for another chance
’cause baby just can’t froget
the way you used to hold me and show me
you loved me like you’d never ever let go of me
for me that feelin’ never disappeared
i keep leavin’ but you’re still here
