Still I Can't Be Still Lyrics

by Idina Menzel

Well I don't believe in God
But she talks to me all the time
And I banish my mother
But she holds me when I cry
And I've been unfaithful
But with me he'll spend the rest of his life
And I have been forgiven
By all whom I've betrayed and love
And I have everything I want
Is it ever enough?

Still I can't be still
Still I can't be silent
Still I can't be still
Still I can't be saved
Still I can't be still
Still I can't be silent
Still I'm....still

Well I don't believe I'm beautiful
But at least I have my sister's smile
And I resist the muses
But they sing to me in exile
And destiny's not deafening
But it hushed me like a child
And everytime I feel as though I'm
Closer to the eye
The storm winds blow, I run inside
And though I feel revived

Still I can't be still
Still I can't be silent
Still I can't be still
Still I can't be saved
Still I can't be still
I can't be silent
Still I'm....still

The insatiable peace
My quest for, for true serenity, yeah
No matter how hard the rain, the thirst
The thirst is neverending
No matter how many friends or angels been sent down to
To take me away
They can't make it okay
They can't make it okay

And everytime I feel as though I'm
Closer to the eye
The storm winds blow, I run inside
And though I feel revived
Yes, everytime I feel as though I'm
Closer to the eye
The storm winds blow, I run inside
And though I feel revived
I don't believe I'm beautiful
At least I've got my sister's smile
I resist the muses
But they sing to me in exile

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
