"Here I Am" as written by and Gary Anthony Lewis/michael Taylor....
This is a crazy world
These can be lonely times
It's hard to know who's on your side
Most of the time

Who can you really trust
Who do you really know
Is there anybody out there
Who can make you feel less alone
Sometimes you just can't make it on your own

If you need a place where you can run
If you need a shoulder to cry on
I'll always be your friend

When you need some shelter from the rain
When you need a healer for your pain
I will be there time and time again
When you need someone to love you
Here I am,

If you have broken dreams
Just lay them all on me
I'll be the one who understands
So take my hand

If you reach emptiness
You know I'll do my best
To fill you up with all the love
That I can show someone
I promise you you'll never walk alone

If you need a place where you can run
If you need a shoulder to cry on
I'll always be your friend

When you need some shelter from the rain
When you need a healer for your pain
I will be there time and time again
When you need someone to love you
Here I am,

Everybody needs somebody who
Keep a heart and soul in two

If you need a place where you can run
If you need a shoulder to cry on
I'll always be your friend

When you need some shelter from the rain
When you need a healer for your pain
I will be there time and time again
When you need someone to love you
Here I am,

Here I am

    General CommentShe said she was inspired to write this after listening to "Anytime You Need A Friend." This is a great song. It's about telling someone you'll ALWAYS be there for them.

    My InterpretationIt's obviously about two friends who got in love with each other, but then it didn't work out. They broke up, and promised to be there for each other whenever they needed somebody to be there.

    Seems like she's still in love with him, she hasn't got over him yet.

    My InterpretationFor me this song could possibly be about someone grieving the loss of someone close. It's just for me the words in this song can be related as when grieving you feel pain, emptiness, lonely, lost, alone. It's like a friend telling you that you won't be alone through your grief and that they'll help you because they know you can't handle or go through it on your own.
