"I'm Still Here (Jim's Theme)" is a song written by The Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik for Disney's animated film Treasure Planet. The song was released by Rzeznik as a single away from The Goo Goo Dolls. It was a moderately successful pop hit.
John Rzeznik was picked to write the song for the movie because it was believed he could relate well with Treasure Planet's main character, Jim, and his "rebel-with-a-cause angst". Referring to Jim, Rzeznik said, "It was easy to relate to Jim, you know? I felt a lot like that when I was his age."
"I'm Still Here" is one of two songs on the Treasure Planet soundtrack performed by Rzeznik; the other being "Always Know Where You Are". The song was sung by Rzeznik during the film, but performed by BBMak on the soundtrack.
A music video was created that featured a young man in front of changing scenery all the while Rzeznik is appearing alongside him. The young man and Rzeznik are seen running throughout the video towards treasure planet and away from the young man's arguing parents; Scroop, one of the villains from the movie, in silhouette; and the destruction of the planet. The end of the video depicts Rzeznik walking down a road.
