3 Doors Down: Here Without You Meaning

Song Released: 2003

Here Without You Lyrics

A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don't think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your...

    I think this song is about a guy who lost the one he loves, through her moving away or a breakup. But he isn't over her and can't move on from her, to the point where he constantly thinks about her and even dreams of her. The song is basically him saying how much he loves and misses her even when they are far apart and don't see one another often.

    When I first heard this song I thought of him...
    I was 18, he was 21. It was instant attraction, love at first sight, inexplainable exhilaration. For reasons I regret and have played out in my head a million times over, I chose an easier catch. 5 years later, I found him but it was too late. Now after 28 years, 2 failed marriages and 3 children later, that once exhilarating feeling has carried me through and kept me going. I am here without him, but he is with me in my dreams. No one can take that away from me. Maybe just maybe, he thinks of me in his dreams. I dream. I hope. But if not, I’m okay without him.

    Song reminds me of my situation. Almost a year ago I was friend requested by a man. We talk every day for hrs. We always support one another, we are each other's best supporters. We connected instantly. We eventually admitted we loved each other but there are states that divide us at this time. We wanna meet and see if it's what we believe it is. But it's hard. We think about each other non stop. It's has gotten to the point it's ripping out hearts out. We crave a physical connection. We have grown together over the last year have an unbreakable bond like no other. We always say we are together in spirit mind and hearts. This song brings me to my knees.

    First I wish there was someway for me to convey exactly the deepths this song reaches into my heart. OK I believe the song is about the loss of a love and the not being able to talk to them ever again. A loss is loss. I've heard so many stories about lost love and the rekindling a relationship and I would say if you miss someone that much go find them. My situation is a little different. The love of my life passed away 16 years ago yet it feels like yesterday. There has never been any period of time in my life that came close to comparing to the years we spent together. So I am here without her.

    I believe it is a song of young love...it was meant to be...but was never fullfilled...the love lived in in their hearts...or decades..even though life has been lessons learned...the desire to return to that innocent pure love overpowers reason...realizing it was true...produced a heartache that they will never get over...

    reminds me of my ex wife. She left me and even though I loved her dearly and would have given my own life to save hers. Though I know she will never change and never come back to me. I let her go as that is what she said but now she calls me to yell and argue then tells me she misses me and loves me and thinks of me all the time.

    I think it is about a man in prison not being with the love of his life..

    My boyfriend from a long long time ago played this for me and said this song reminded him of me when we weren't together...he broke up with me and I never got over it. I still think about him all of the time and wonder how he's doing ...I haven't heard or seen him in years. I often wonder if he ever thinks of me too. It's torture to listen to this song now!

    It could just means the persona is missing someone dear to him, to be simple and honest. However, I was dumped very recently, and somehow this song makes sense in every way. I miss my girlfriend (my ex as of now) so much, I love her in every way possible, but still in the end, I was dumped, and she just wouldn't say why. Even though it hurts like hell, I still miss her, and love her. I don't think I can get over her for a couple of years

    For me this is a song between a soldier over seas and his girl back home. Hes with her in his dreams and he can't wait to be back home with her again.

    It's a love song to a woman he loved but is no longer with: 100 days since he saw her pretty face. The miles between them is a metaphor for the distance he feels by her absence. She was a compulsive liar and it he can't keep taking her back. He is expressing the struggle between his undying love and his unwillingness to be taken advantage of and continuously hurt.

    I see this song as being without someone who you have gotten close to. You don't want to need them but in the long run you help each other!

    This song brings me to tears everytime i hear it.

    It is about falling in love so head-over-heels, but then losing your loved one. He loved someone so much but they are now seperated by distance or death. He is mourning and can't let go of his pain.

    The poet is far from his beloved and after a long time-many years later-he’s writing a letter and describing his pure feeling about the lack of her existence. Every stanza is an imaginative talk with her.
