Here With Me (1994)

“At one of our jam sessions, a friend from high school wondered if I had any ideas on how to finish a song from a verse he'd written that ended with the phrase, '...here with me.'  I immediately felt this song had potential.

Here With Me started out as a simple - 'I miss you,' - country-type song, but my oldest son, Gabriel, said he could hear the voice of God calling out to all of us in the lyrics...  'Hello Hunny, yeah, I know it's late.  I just needed to hear your voice tonight.'  I guess God misses us too.”

~Drew Jarrod

"'Here With Me' is great!  I like the cover art....interesting." ~Allison, Austin, MN

"I love 'Here With Me'.  The orchestration is something new and lends a different feel to the music.  It's very powerful." ~Bryce, Rochester, MN

Hello Hunny, yeah, I know it’s late.
I just needed to hear your voice tonight.
I’ve been feeling lonely without you.

You know this picture I have of you
just won’t do.
(No,) I want you,
here with me.

I am sorry to call so late.
“That’s all right,” she said,
“I'm glad I’m still awake!
Tell me true, boy,
when are you coming home?

You know, these days can go so slowly;
Without you, I’m all alone…
here with me."

Any day without you here,
near me, is too long.

I want you here, by my side
You help me by being...

...here with me.
Here with me.
I need you here with me.
Here with me.
