With You - GAWVI




The Experience: I know you feel alone but I'm right there with you... When just being there for someone is more than enough...

Music video: GAWVI is alone, and alone, and alone. That loneliness lets him understand how much we all need company through our struggles, but also raises the question. Are we capable of truly understanding and accompanying others? How deeply? Are there limits? The lyrics say yes, but the lonely visuals underline just how hard it is to be there for others.

The Meaning of With You: Gabriel Alberto Azucena opens up on level with everyone who hears his song. In his own words, "I wanted people to feel the emotions I had, and to let them know that I am going through things just like they are. I didn't want to give you an answer, I just wanted to cry with you and be there with you." The key to With You is the full Bible verse that GAWVI references in the music video: Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep - Romans 12:15. The song admits to suffering and hurting - got me feelin' low. But pushes past personal lows to offer company - I'm right there with you - to everyone else's hurt.

Ask yourself: Where do you find the strength to push past your own sorrows and shoulder others' burdens?

LYRICS:


[MUSIC VIDEO: I wrote this song because I wanted everyone to know that I am human too. Last year on tour my childhood best friend passed away and I couldn't make it to his funeral. In that same month I was dealing with depression. During this time a lot of problems were coming out in my marriage and there was fear of ending up in a divorce like my parents. As I wrote this song I wanted people to feel the emotions I had, and to let them know that I am going through things just like they are. I didn't want to give you an answer, I just wanted to cry with you and be there with you.

Romans 12:15 (Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.)]

Oh oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Runnin' on the sideline, right now
This feel like a lifetime, I doubt
Losing all my patience, somehow
Feelin' the vibrations of you now
Tell me, are you sad, are you sad?
When no one is left to wipe your tears off
I know you feel alone
But I'm right there with you (you)
You (you), with you (you), yeah
I'm always there with you (you) (you)
With you (you), yeah
I'm always there with you

Hey, fairytales tied down, ooh
I can't even tell [?], yeah
Try to find a lighthouse, ooh
Losin' sight of why I started
I hear you outside, outside
Sorry I couldn't say goodbye
I can't seem to justify
Why you had to die
I got funerals
Hard to find a soul
Someone else who knows
Livin' on this road
Pull up for the quick fix
I know we won't fix it
Got me feelin' low
Pull it for the top like

Runnin' on the sideline, right now
This feel like a lifetime, I doubt
Losing all my patience, somehow
Feelin' the vibrations of you now
Tell me, are you sad, are you sad?
When no one is left to wipe your tears off
I know you feel alone
But I'm right there with you (you)
You (you), with you (you), yeah
I'm always there with you (you) (you)
With you (you), yeah
I'm always there with you

Hey, I'm afraid of love, ooh
Happy homes flipped to divorce
Yeah, lonely holidays child, ooh
All I see is tears when it rains down
I can't even lie to satisfy
Drivin' around the city, satellite
Married 'til I die, 'til I die
Baby, hit the road side by side
Got me coastin'
Steady focus
Guns N' Roses
For you posers
Oh my mama said
I won't fall off
Yeah, God, you catch me when I fall down

Runnin' on the sideline, right now
This feel like a lifetime, I doubt
Losing all my patience, somehow
Feelin' the vibrations of you now
Tell me, are you sad, are you sad?
When no one is left to wipe your tears off
I know you feel alone
But I'm right there with you (you)
You (you), with you (you), yeah
I'm always there with you (you) (you)
With you (you), yeah
I'm always there with you
