Lyrics

Aint Been Here

Written By: David Brinker

I’ve stole a tan from Mexico
Sat on the pier in Frisco
Felt the spotlight in Nashville
Had a buzz in Margaritaville
But I sure, aint been here

Seen the Big Sky in Bozeman
Tasted the rain in Portland
Kicked it with the stars down in LA
Rode a wave in Hanalei
But I sure, aint been here

I aint been here and the proof is stuck
Underneath the glass and a layer of dust
In these picture frames of family memories
My brother in his cap and gown
Granddad when he was still around
All across this wall the only thing missing is me
I’ve been everywhere
But I sure aint been here

I’ve dodged a Saint Louis twister
Got these ol’ boots in Fort Worth
Been mesmerized by the northern lights
And Pennsylvania fire flies
But I sure, aint been here

I aint been here and the proof is stuck
Underneath the glass and a layer of dust
In these picture frames of family memories
My uncle toasting to retirement
Dad setting up his hunting tent
All across this wall the only thing missing is me
I’ve been everywhere
But I sure, aint been here

I couldn’t wait to ditch this, tiny country town
But now all I missed is, plastered around
This old house, like carvings in stone
All forever gone, Oh I

Aint been here and the proof is stuck
Underneath the glass and a layer of dust
In these picture frames of family memories
The whole fam down at the beach
Snow angels on Christmas Eve
All across this wall the only thing missing is me
I’ve been everywhere

I’ve stole a tan from Mexico
Sat on the pier in Frisco
