The lyrics to “I’m still here” by Sia are based on actual struggles that she has faced in her life. They include drug addiction, alcoholism, depression, fame and even attempted suicide. She even went as far as writing a suicide note but was saved from doing so by someone close to her.
It’s a reminder to stand strong and not let society change you. You know who you are and they don’t and they shouldn’t tell you otherwise, so be true to yourself.
“I’m still here” is an uplifting song that reminds you to keep moving forward and never give up on your dreams. It also shows that you’re not alone and there’s always someone out there who will support you.
The lyrics are also a reminder that you can conquer your demons if you try hard enough. They’re also a reminder to look at the bigger picture and see the good in any situation.
The song is a tribute to the showgirl Carlotta Campion who has risen from poverty to become a movie and nightclub star, and it’s also a cultural roadmap for the excesses of American culture. It’s been sung by some of the best actresses in the business, including Yvonne De Carlo, Nancy Walker, Carol Burnett, Shirley MacLaine and Ann Miller. Hopefully, it will strike a chord with everyone who listens to it! You can find it on the soundtrack to Follies, which is a Stephen Sondheim musical.
