When Marshmello first revealed he had a collaboration coming with CHVRCHES, fans were understandably skeptical. However, after listening to their new song “Here With Me” a number of times this morning, it’s easy to see that the two work together fantastically.


“Here With Me” isn’t a particularly groundbreaking song for either artist, but its simplicity lets CHVRCHES lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s voice shine through brilliantly. Supported by a light guitar melody and some understated drums, the song remains catchy all the way through.

As with any song under three minutes (“Here With Me” clocking in at 2 minutes, 36 seconds), I wish it was a bit longer. Maybe another bridge or some vocal embellishment in one of the verses would have been nice, but it’s still a great track nonetheless.

Check out “Here With Me” by Marshmello featuring CHVRCHES below.

Marshmello ft CHVRCHES – Here With Me [Lyrics]

[Verse 1]
Can I tell you something just between you and me?
When I hear your voice, I know I’m finally free
Every single word is perfect as it can be
And I need you here with me
When you lift me up, I know that I’ll never fall
I can speak to you by saying nothing at all
Every single time, I find it harder to breathe
‘Cause I need you here with me

[Chorus]
Every day
You’re saying the words that I want you to say
There’s a pain in my heart and it won’t go away
Now I know I’m falling in deep
‘Cause I need you here with me
Every day
You’re saying the words that I want you to say
There’s a pain in my heart and it won’t go away
Now I know I’m falling in deep
‘Cause I need you here with me

[Verse 2]
I think I see your face in every place that I go
I try to hide it, but I know that it’s gonna show
Every single night, I find it harder to sleep
‘Cause I need you here with me

[Chorus]
Everyday
You’re saying the words that I want you to say
There’s a pain in my heart and it won’t go away
Now I know I’m falling in deep
‘Cause I need you here with me
Every day
You’re saying the words that I want you to say
There’s a pain in my heart and it won’t go away
Now I know I’m falling in deep
‘Cause I need you here with me

[Outro]
Can I tell you something just between you and me?
When I hear your voice, I know I’m finally free
Every single word is perfect as it can be
‘Cause I need you here with me
