Here With Me - Marshmello ft. CHVRCHES




The Experience: I need you here with me... Love is needing someone. But it's also committing to one person over everyone else...

Music video: She's a daughter, proud of and enthralled with her dad's firefighter heroics. It's only when she watches him almost not come home - she and her mom actually think he's dead - that the pride is mixed with pain. It's pain shot through with immense love, but still pain. The lyric video is a completely different take on the source of the pain in CHVRCHES' heart. She's in love with not one man but two - the two different male faces in the video. She has to choose. But both of them seem like "the one". Both seem to complete her... And that's why she's falling in deep - not just deep in love, but also deep into the dilemma of having to choose.

The Meaning of Here With Me: CHVRCHES' character has found true love. Love that she needs. But above all, love that frees instead of enslaving - when I hear your voice I know I'm finally free. Her greatest joy is that her love is saying the words that I want you to say. What's the lyrics don't explain is the pain - there's a pain in my heart and it won't go away. The music video showcases the pride and pain of watching those you love put their lives on the line. The lyric video examines a second type of pain: she's in love with two men and has to choose. That dilemma highlights a key element of love. Love isn't just magic. Love is a choice, a hard choice. Love means choosing one person over everyone else.

Ask yourself: is your love strong enough to cause you pain? Is your love mature enough to be a conscious commitment?

LYRICS:


Can I tell you something just between you and me?
When I hear your voice I know I'm finally free
Every single word is perfect as it can be
And I need you here with me

When you lift me up I know that I'll never fall
I can speak to you by saying nothing at all
Every single time I find it harder to breathe
'Cause I need you here with me

Everyday
You're saying the words that I want you to say
There's a pain in my heart and it won't go away
Now I know I'm falling in deep
'Cause I need you here with me

Everyday
You're saying the words that I want you to say
There's a pain in my heart and it won't go away
Now I know I'm falling in deep
'Cause I need you here with me

I think I see your face in every place that I go
I try to hide it but I know that it's gonna show
Every single night I find it harder to sleep
'Cause I need you here with me

Everyday
You're saying the words that I want you to say
There's a pain in my heart and it won't go away
Now I know I'm falling in deep
'Cause I need you here with me

Everyday
You're saying the words that I want you to say
There's a pain in my heart and it won't go away
Now I know I'm falling in deep
'Cause I need you here with me

Can I tell you something just between you and me?
When I hear your voice I know I'm finally free
Every single word is perfect as it can be
'Cause I need you here with me
