about

Written Nov 10th 2016. This was very recently written and recorded on my iPod, so it's not going to be my very best performance or the very best sound quality. I'll try to make a more dressed-up version (harmonies, better recording, etc.) at some point in the future if people like it.

lyrics

Still Here

Lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2016

I am sick at heart this morning, as I count your tantrum's cost

The marriages you will shatter, the innocent black lives lost

But I got out of bed and I put on clothes and I showed up here to say

I'm still here-- and I will not go away!

Your hatred gives me sorrow, but I'll look you in the face

If you murder me tomorrow, another will take my place

I am not alone and I'm not ashamed, and I showed up here to say

I'm still here-- and I will not go away!

We're still here--and we will not go away!

We're still here--and we will not go away!

We are men who crossed the border, and children raised right here

We are women who are equals; and we will not live in fear

We are red and yellow, black and brown, we are trans and bi and gay

And we're still here-- and we will not go away!

We're still here--and we will not go away!

We're still here--and we will not go away!

Though you've made our lives much harder, we’ll remember why and how

For the earth and for each other, we must stand together now;

There are more of us than there are of you and you may have won today

But we're still here-- and we will not go away!

We're still here, still here, and we will not go away.

We're still here (in our millions) still here--and we will not go away.
