"I'm Already There" as written by Richie Mcdonald, Gary B Baker and Frank Myers....
He called her on the road
From a lonely, cold hotel room
Just to hear her say I love you one more time
But when he heard the sound
Of the kids laughing in the background
He had to wipe away a tear from his eye
A little voice came on the phone
Said, "Daddy when you coming home?"
He said the first thing that came to his mind

I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
I'm your imaginary friend
And I know I'm in your prayers
Oh, I'm already there

She got back on the phone
Said I really miss you, darling
Don't worry about the kids--they'll be all right
Wish I was in your arms
Lying right there beside you
But I know that I'll be in your dreams tonight
And I'll gently kiss your lips
Touch you with my fingertips
So turn out the light and close your eyes

I'm already there
Don't make a sound
I'm the beat in your heart
I'm the moonlight shining down
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I'm already there

We may be a thousand miles apart
But I'll be with you wherever you are

I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I'm already there
Oh, I'm already there

    General Commentthi song really has a special meaning .....my uncle close as a dad was in a bad bad car accident awhile ago...he is paralyzed from the waistdown, he had extensive brain damage and was iffy if he would ever be the same if he lived....but by the grace of God he did, is the same man he was before, minus the use of his legs....here's where this song comes in...he was in the hospital for 7 months and every night when he talked to my aunt on the phone, he would hear the kids in the background and want to be with them soooo much...he missed his wife.....laying in the intensive care alone...this song made him cry when he still couldn't even speak....God is so good, he saved his life...i love you unc!!!

    General CommentI love this song...it's given me so much inspiration in my writing. The words are just so beautiful. It makes me think of anyone that has to travel for a living (athlete/singer) and can't see their family. It's real sweet.
    Okay I'm done being emotional now. :)

    General CommentBeautiful song. It's about a man who's away from home for a reason unknown, and it explain how he's feeling and how his family is responding to his absence. This also explains how much he loves his family, and how much they mean to him. Also, how he's saying that he'll always be there for them, no matter what the circumstances are. Wonderful <3
