The Crane Wives

"Here I Am"

[Verse 1]
I'm getting tired of watching other people go
The lights on my street never come on
And the lines are overgrown

[Verse 2]
It's obvious now that I've been forgotten
The hollow houses and vacant lots and
The shattered windows and splintered doors
How long have I been here all alone?

[Bridge]
Here I am again
The one who gets
Left behind, left behind, left behind
Settled in, had a plan
But I never factored in
Everyone else saying goodbye

[Chorus]
This ghost town is making a ghost of me
This ghost town is making a ghost, making a ghost of me

[Verse 3]
I promised myself I'd learn to be the one who leaves
With no more roots to tie me down
It's just a different kind of lonely

[Verse 4]
So I'm back to pulling arms
And begging and begging
For the love of God
Don't leave me here again

[Bridge]
Here I am again
The one who gets
Left behind, left behind, left behind
Settled in, had a plan
But I never factored in
Everyone else saying goodbye

[Chorus]
This ghost town is making a ghost of me
This ghost town is making a ghost
Making a ghost of me

[Verse 5]
They shake me off and ask why I bother
The answer is simple
My father, his father
I come from a long line of people who believe
In the flowers that grow
In the cracks in the street

Here I am
Here I am
