I Am Still 
Lyrics by David Cameron Anderson, Davecamson Music ASCAP
Music by Steven Landau

I'm a broken down motel
My old couches stacked outside
A too tall Penske truck took my awning for a ride
The back half of a school bus has up and blocked my door
My lot is full of cars that no one's driving anymore
My lobby has its secrets, to say nothing of my rooms
Daylight swept them all away without the touch of brooms
I've seen my share of lonely with too much time to kill
Acting on 'if only' with more than time to fill

Cracking plaster, broken glass
A telephone you dial
Thistles where there once was grass
Fallen keys on tile
Faded curtains droop beyond the sill
I am still

There's some folks at city hall passed a motion to tear down
They're gonna save my sign 'cause I'm history for this town
You see it from the freeway,it's promise long a lie
In air-conditioned comfort, color TV, home-made pie
For sport a few may wonder just how long my sign will last
Comes a day I'll cease to serve up anybody's past
Today I miss the voices of children not yet mute
Exercising choices far from absolute

Cracking plaster, broken glass
A telephone you dial
Thistles where there once was grass
Fallen keys on tile
Faded curtains droop beyond the sill
I am still
