"Landing in London" as written by Bradley Kirk Arnold, Robert Todd Harrell, Christopher Lee Henderson and Matthew Darrick Roberts....
I woke up today in London
As the plane was touching down
And all I could think about was Monday
Maybe I'd be back around
If this keeps me way much longer
I don't know what I would do
You got to understand it's a hard life,
That I'm going through

[Chorus]
And when the night falls around me
And I don't think I'll make it through
I'll use your light to guide the way
All I think about is you

L A is getting kind of crazy
And New York is getting kind of cold
I keep my head from getting lazy
I just can't wait to get back home

And all these days I spend away
I'll make up for this I swear
I need your love to hold me up
When it's all to much to bear

[Chorus]

And all these days I spend away
I'll make up for this I swear
I need your love to hold me up
When it's all to much to bear

And when the night falls around me
And I don't think I'll make it through
I'll use your light to guide the way

All I think about is you

[Chorus]

    General CommentMaybe Bob Seger just makes me think of "Turn the Page," but I see a lot of similarities with this song and that one.

    The feeling to me is the same. It's about being on the road and travelling and surviving, and being alone. Where you make a living and in doing so, leave your loved one behind.

    I always get this imagery, of being somewhere far away in such a cold place, with the wind blowing against your hair, your hands tucked in your coat pockets, and taking a stroll and just thinking.

    How this life is so much a place we don't fit in sometimes. Even if there was a way to see your family or loved ones across the globe in an instant, well I wish it wasn't fiction.

    We all work so hard in this life. We all try to be someone. And it gets incredibly difficult just being here at times. How we all need that someone we can always think about, remember, and pull us through those tough times.

    I hope that each and every one of you has that someone. Or if not, I hope you will.

    Sometimes the sufferring involved with loneliness is merely just the fact that you don't have someone that thinks of you. That you don't have someone that is watching over you.

    To be erased is the worse thing to me.

    General CommentSuch a great featuring Bob Seger...has a very similar theme to Here by Me. (deep love relationship that is spent being away from her because he is on the road)

    General CommentThis song does remind me a little of "Turn the Page", because in "Turn the Page" it sounds like Bob Seger is travelling through the desert (at least it reminds me of that), while this song does the same thing.

    General CommentThe song also reminds me a liitle of "Like a Rock", because the beginning has a little bit of a pickup truck feeling as well

    General CommentChino69, your words ring so true. This song, to me is about a guy that has loosing someone, because he has to be gone all the time. The imagry of this song is beautiful, and it really touches ones soul. It is a reflection of what I am going through right now, and how I am loosing everything that is important, but my pride wont let me budge.

    I dont want to be erased either.....

    General Commentthis song is about his relationship with a loved one, and either they just broke up, or one has left away for quite some time.

    General CommentIt makes so much sense to myself... the life on the road is lonely, and I cannot describe how tough it get a times... I've seen so many bands and artist suffer under the presure they feel every single day, and how the road never seems to bring you home. The only reason one can remain sane is when they have someone they love so much, one that can be their light through the night...
