This was a song me and Muck just love. I use to sing it in the car to him and bless his heart he never said nothing about me singing off key. He would say I had the voice of an Angel! No matter what! LOL Now that he’s actually hanging with the Angels, he’s probably wondering what the hell he was thinking when he told me that!! LMAO!

I mentioned this before. I didn’t fully get what the words meant until I heard it while driving home from the airport with Chrissy and AnneMarie for his service. Then it became very clear! And he wanted Martin and I to dance to it at his service, so we did. And after my recent post about him being a Spirit Guide, well it became even more clear how much this song resonates for Andrew.

These words resonated with Andrew because of the way he was treated in school. They wanted to label him ADD, & ADHD and put him on medication. We wouldn’t allow it! We wondered why they couldn’t see who he really was. They wanted him to change while they stayed the same. Keeping an outdated school system for Indigos, it doesn’t work no matter how hard they try. They couldn’t stop him from dreaming for him. He was invisible in school in the sense they wouldn’t see him for who he really was. God knows we tried! This song brings tears to my eyes every time. It is so beautiful. It’s so much bigger with what I know now.

Anyway, here is the clip and words. The words by the clip are incorrect. Johnny Reznick is a babe!

Lyrics: I’m Still Here video link

I am a question to the world,
Not an answer to the Earth.
Or a moment that’s held in your arms.
And what do you think you’d ever say?
I won’t listen anyway…
You don’t know me,
And I’ll never be what you want me to be.

And what do you think you’d understand?
I’m a boy, no, I’m a man..
You can’t take me and throw me away.
And how can you learn what’s never shown?
Yeah, you stand here on your own.
They don’t know me ’cause I’m not here.

And I want a moment to be real,
Wanna touch things I don’t feel,
Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
And how can the world want me to change,
They’re the ones they stay the same.
The don’t know me, ‘Cause I’m not here.

(this verse is for Martin and I)

And you see the things they never see
All you wanted, I could be
Now you know me, and I’m not afraid
And I wanna tell you who I am
Can you help me be a man?
They can’t break me
As long as I know who I am

And I want a moment to be real,
Wanna touch things I don’t feel,
Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
And how can the world want me to change,
They’re the ones they stay the same.
They can’t see me, But I’m still here.

They can’t tell me who to be,
‘Cause I’m not what they see.
And the world is still sleepin’
While I keep on dreamin’ for me.
And their words are just whispers
And lies that I’ll never believe.

And I want a moment to be real,
Wanna touch things I don’t feel,
Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
And how can they say I never change
They’re the ones that stay the same.
I’m the one now, ‘Cause I’m still here.

I’m the one, ‘Cause I’m still here.
I’m still here.
I’m still here.
I’m still here.

    Are your fingers tired yet ? Four post in one day, what are you taking the weekend off ?

    The words to that song are lovely !!! I agree with you 100%, the school system is totally outdated. I home schooled my daughter for the same reasons.

    I guess I was preparing for Wesley’s visit this weekend, it’s a 3 day weekend! And he’s usually on the computer I use.

    Dunno what came over me really, I normally save my posts and post them one a night if I have a few in the queue. :-) I guess I felt I didn’t want to wait.
    We have the psychic party tomorrow at Karen T’s so who know what all I will have to report! :-D

    Can’t wait to hear about your party.

    That song is beautiful Connie! It’s for all of us who never really felt as if we belonged here!

    I pulled my oldest daughter out of school when she entered the 5th grade. The poor sprog had been in a different school every year since Kindergarten! *eek!* How nice to learn it was the schools that had a problem and not us ;-)
    I home schooled my other 3 children as well. My youngest daughter (at 10 yrs of age) decided she wanted to be like the other kids on the street and went to 5th and 6th grade. She got good grades – but what a disaster! Those kids tore her apart >:-(

    My oldest 2 went to high school – one in the 10th grade and one in 11th. They did just fine and made lots of friends. My last 2 have been home schooled all the way through.

    Tis sad really! I’m signing up for the Registered Nurse program at our local Community College (my work is paying for my college education!). They now have a required pre-admission exam (forget that I’ve already graduated from there in Marketing and I’m still on the Dean’s List!) So this past Friday, I took the test. The young girls right outta high school were very nervous! They said that they have friends who have taken it 2 and 3 times! (at $40 / ea! *eek!* ) I’ve been out of college for 19 yrs! And I passed every test the first time!

    So what’s the deal? How come kids right out of high school cannot pass a basic test like this? I had to review the math (lots!) cuz let’s face it – I don’t multiply mixed fractions with differing denominators on a daily basis. I have studied that since 4th grade! But with a little review (and a lot of swearing), I still passed the math test! But kids just graduating from high school cannot pass basic math, reading comprehension or vocabulary (granted – twas vocab slanted toward medicine – but I got an 84%! and I haven’t been in Nursing training for 19 yrs!) (I had to drop outta Nursing Training 19 yrs ago cuz I got pregnant with my TWINS! – yeah! That would do it! ;-) )

    Ehem! I guess I’ve gone on long enough about the school system! I’ll get off my soap box now.

    Oh and…I’m not going to be around much as I’ll be busier than a one armed paper hanger! My company (a large hospital here in GR) got a grant for 3 employees to become Certified Nurse’s Assistants. I got one of the spots! So beginning this Tues, I’ll be in class for 4 weeks. Will I move outta Dietary and work as a CNA? Nope! It is to add to my skills (and I can help out in an emergency if needed. Right now, the State of Michigan says I can’t even push one of our folks down the hallway w/out being a CNA for liability *sigh*) But being a CNA isn’t going to hurt my quest to become an RN either. And it’s free money. And I was ‘invited’ by our Administrator to take the course (fellow Projectors will understand that one *grin*)

    I’ll try to pop in here every day and read the blog at least!

    Huge hugs!

    Yea, you got a good dose of public school too I see Dana. Elatia could handle it better altho she was in private school as well as public. Andrew would have never survived middle or high school.

    All the best on your up coming studies. I give you and Denise credit! Denise is going for her Masters in acupuncture! :-o Can’t even imagine doing that! My head would explode!!!
