"Here With Me" as written by and Pascal Gabriel Dido Armstrong....
I didn't hear you leave
I wonder how am I still here
I don't want to move a thing
It might change my memory

Oh I am what I am
I'll do what I want but I can't hide
I won't go I won't sleep
I can't breathe until you're resting here with me
I won't leave I can't hide
I cannot be until you're resting here with me

I don't want to call my friends
They might wake me from this dream
And I can't leave this bed,
Risk forgetting all that's been

Oh I am what I am
I'll do what I want,
But I can't hide
I won't go, I won't sleep,

I can't breathe,
Until you're resting here with me
I won't leave, I can't hide,
I cannot be until you're resting here with me

    General CommentThis song reminds me of something that happened in my life. Actually this morning. My best friend/kinda boyfriend moved away. I was lying in his bed. I asked him to come lye down with me... he wouldnt. It hurt. I told him I would leave after he left. So he hugged me goodbye, and I watched him walk out of his room. I layed in his bed for a little while afterwords, to make one last memory.
    And that, my friends, is what this song means to me.

    General CommentA song so beautiful the thought of it makes you want to cry. It's an amazing testimony to the impact others can have on someone's life. For someone's entire being to cease at the depature of someone close to them is a powerful statement. And it goes for any any loved ones: family, friends, significant other. Sometimes you feel so lost without them, that you feel that any movement you make will end your life. And that is when you cry out to them to just be there with you. This is why this is such a beautiful song. The fact that Dido can sing her face off doesn't hurt either.

    General CommentFantastic song, I'm really amazed by her ability to convey messages through songs so successfully, and show powerful emotion, and to top it off, she wrote, sang and performed all of the songs...not something you usually get from emotion/pop singers.

    I only just bought the album today, and I haven't taken it out of the discman yet!! Highly recommended!!

    Anyway, the song is obviously about a loved one (not neccesarily a partner) leaving for an unknown reason (she's left those two things upto you) and just ceasing to function without them. Sounds simple, but she sings it very powerfully, and I can't think of any other artist who's conveyed the lyrics so closely to the music and succeeded.

    Another thing, I don't usually venture into this genre of music, I listen to Muse, Radiohead, Coldplay, Wilco, South, Doves, Badly Drawn Boy and Frou Frou. But this really is something else...

    General CommentI love this girl. She's got the beatufiul voice... I went to her concert and let me tell you, she sounds even better singing in person. Dido's my favorite singer... She writes her own songs... This is one of my favorites on the CD... Now... All I have to ask is, "Dido. where's your next album?"
