You're There Lyrics - Barry Manilow

Review The Song (5)

My friends all use the past tense when they speak of you
And so to make them comfortable I use it too
They'd soon have me committed if they only knew
What I believe with all my heart is true

I know you're there
Although it's nothing I can prove
I know you're there
By just the way the shadows move
And though I said goodbye and finally let you go
I know you're there
Although I don't know how I know

I know you see
The crazy things I sometimes do
They make you laugh
So I still do them just for you
And when I'm entertaining all the friends I love
I know you see
And that you're laughing from above

You needn't panic
I'm not consulting any guru
Calling psychics
Or practicing with voodoo
I'm not manic or depressive
I just miss you

So I'll go on
Enjoying every lovely day
Because I'm sure
you would've wanted it this way.
And when there's sorrow, it's no more than I can bear
Because you are, and always were, and always will be there

Best Song Ever? | Reviewer: Steve T | 11/14/13

This could be the most touching, beautiful song ever written. The composer, David Friedman, is fairly well known and has written many hit tunes but I can't find anything else with lyrics by Alix Korey that's been recorded commercially by a hit artist. Perhaps she just gave up, knowing she (nor anyone) could never write a more perfect song?

Thank You | Reviewer: maryo | 11/26/12

I echo the sentiments of the previous reviewer. I heard this for the first time this afternoon and stayed in my car until it was finished. I too lost my husband---- exactly two years ago and these lyrics express my feelings beautifuly.

You are there | Reviewer: AgnesJoan | 2/11/12

Just heard it tonight and this song touches my heart, that I have to wait in my car to finish the song. It brought tears in my eyes,that the unspoken feelings I have in my heart since my husband died, was expressed by the lyrics of this wonderful song. Its beautifully written...It speaks for me.

Another nugget of magic, Mr. Manilow provides | Reviewer: vince cosentino | 11/28/08

To some, this appears like a "filler" song, or throw-in number before an evenings finale, but like so many of this mans songs, it rings deep inside, with a warm and personal touch, that only a gifted few could do.
I've listened, owned,watched,traveled and everything between, to do with Barry's music, and no matter what, a song of his surfaces, to define a period in my life. I HOPE he continues introducing new music, that I FEEL, comes from the heart, like I'm sure this one did.

Please listen to this song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/31/07

Rarely is there a song so poignant and insightful that it almost demands to be heard. This song is the one so many people that have lost a loved one desperately need to hear.
