"Without You Here" as written by and John Rzeznik....
Your love's a gathered storm I chased across the sky
A moment in your arms became the reason why
And you're still the only light that fills the emptiness
The only one I need until my dying breath
And I would give you everything just to
Feel your open arms
And I'm not sure I believe anything I feel

And now, now that you're near
There's nothing more without you
Without you here

And I'm trying to believe
In things that I don't know
The turning of the world
The color of your soul
That love could kill the pain
Truth is never vain
It turns strangers into lovers
And enemies to brothers
Just say you understand
I never had this planned

And now, now that you're near
There's nothing more without you
Without you here
Without you here
There's nothing more without you
Without you here

My head lies to my heart
And my heart it still believes
It seems the ones who love us are the ones
That we deceive
But you're changing everything
You're changing everything in me

And now, now that you're near
There's nothing more without you
Without you here

    General Commenti actually love this song. its nothing extraordinary, but its what i wanted to hear when i clicked play for this song.

    i can relate to the lyrics alot when i hear them. its weird, when gutterflower came out, basically an album about his ex wife and his relationship, i had just broken up with mine. And with this song, hes exactly where I am now.

    Rock on Johnny.

    General Commentit IS a beautiful song. i think its about how love changes everything...the way you see the world, the way you see yourself...and the feeling that you finally have a reason. yet we're always scared and try to hold back cause we're afraid..."my head lies to my heart, and my heart it still believes" but at the end of it all, you cant deny that life without that person would be completely different.. :)

    General CommentWow. I wonder if John reads my journal. If this song applies to him the same way it applies to me, then it's about having someone, losing them, wanting them, but can't have them the same way as before. It's about the worth of real love, and wanting it back to the way it was when two people genuinely loved eachother.

    General CommentI think that this song is about how you can love someone, and then start to doubt it and maybe end up doing something that hurts the other person, and its not until after, and they're standing right there beside you that you realise how much you need and want that person and that nothing else can fill that gap. hmm

    General CommentParaphrasing John, it's about having strong feelings for someone who's close to you, but not having the relationship you want. You want to be closer to them, and just want them to feel the same way and accept you (And I would give you everything/Just to feel your open arms), but don't want to alienate this person at the same time.
