lyrics

I’M STILL THERE
Clayton Webster / Monte Warden

There’s miles and miles of beach outside my door
But I couldn’t be any further from the shore
Momma, I cannot tell you where I am
But I’m learning what it takes to be a man

I spent last night underneath the stars
The very same ones shining where you are
So before you say your prayers tonight
Know that when I close my eyes

I’m still there in my bed down the hall
Asking for one more story, that’s all
Momma they can send me anywhere
But home is where the heart is, and I’m still there

In the care package you sent there was nothing wrong
By the time it came back to me the cookies were gone
The video of Mary’s recital sure was great
Tell her I hope to be home by her birthday

Momma I can’t answer all the questions you asked
But I’ll tell you all my stories when I get back
Every day feels like I’m walking in a dream
There’s only one thing that’s carrying me

I’m still there in my bed down the hall
Asking for one more story, that’s all
Momma they can send me anywhere
But home is where the heart is, and I’m still there

But home is where the heart is, and I’m still there
