I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while

Far is solace in the maddening pace
Sad state written on my face

Not a tight rope walk but dance
Uncertain game of chance
But I'll see it through in time

I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while

And if a person, place or thing can deliver
I would quiver with delight
Tempted by the hand that could
Blind my vision and sight

But at twenty years of age
In frolic and in rage
I will see it through in time

I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while

But the dawn has come into the endless night
And everything's gonna be all right

But at thirty years of age
Through frolic and in rage
All regressed and healed in time

"I'll be here a while ain't going nowhere"
Said I, said I, said I
"I will survive"

Songwriters
DOUG MARTINEZ, NICHOLAS LOFTON HEXUM
