I'll Be Here Awhile
311 Lyrics


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, (whoa whoa)
Uncertain game of chance, (whoa whoa)
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, (whoa whoa)
In frolic and in rage, (whoa whoa)
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, is going to be alright
But at thirty years of age, (whoa whoa)
Through frolic and in rage, (whoa whoa)
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

This song means so much to me. Got me through some of my darkest times. First heard this song while I was still in high school, in 2001, 10th grade.

I almost took own my life at the age of 22, 12yrs ago. But im still here, because I chose to live; I couldn't let those demons win. Now I sit here, aged 34yrs old, appreciating how much of a gift life truly is, no matter how hard it may get. At 22, I reached the absolute lowest point of my life, and felt it could only go up from there.

🎶"At twenty years of age..."🎶,

🎶"but at 30yrs of age..." 🎶

I can now say I've lived beyond both age markers in the song, and I'm still here to tell it. One must always find the reason, the purpose, the point, the beauty, in living life. I still come back to this song from time to time, and get so emotional.

Now I cruise down Pacific Coast Highway as the sun sets, in my Jeep Wrangler with top off, wind blowing in my hair and face. Just me, the road, the sky, and the music. 311's music as the soundtrack. It's a weightless feeling. 🤟🏽

For even the simplest things in life, I'm so grateful. Life is beautiful, and I'll Be Here A While.

Thank you, 311. 🙇🏽‍♀️🙏🏽

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
