To Where You Are Lyrics
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memory, so clear
Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be (?)
That you are mine
And you are watching over me from...

I once heard this song was written in memory of the lives lost in the 9/11 attack. That explanation makes perfect sense. Every time I hear it I feel like I'm listening to a tribute to all those lost. Very emotional!

My beloved dog died this year & I am lost without him. When I listen to the words of this song I feel closer to him. I don’t think the song is only about human loss. Many of us know the agony of losing a much loved pet, & the words of this song could certainly apply to that loss as well.

Read all the other interpretations and they all seem very authentic. I lost my wonderful, loving husband of 47 years to cancer 9 months ago, and this song (while it makes me very emotional when I listen to it) has been a Godsend. I listen to it often, and it reminds me that my husband is still here and watching over me. I do believe that angels breathe.

My mother was dying in hospice house and our friend heard this song and told us to download it. My father had died 6 months before and they were married 49 years. She said she had a broken heart. We played this for 2 days before she died, it is what true love is all about. We had a friend song it at her funeral and someone told me they saw angels take her to heaven. Thank you Josh for this amazing song.

I believe this song refers to all the signs loved ones give us after their deaths. After my husband died,I felt him all around me.There were visitations through dreams where he showed me his body being whole again after years of fighting cancer. And many ,many more signs. I'm a believer in the phrase that '"a breath away's not far to where you are".

I believe that the lyrics apply to all the people one loves dearly who die before us, whether it be one's husband, wife, parents, siblings, children or friends. Having reached my seventies, the list of those I love most on this earth having died grows practically by the day but they all live on in my heart, which is filled with gratitude for the fact that they always have been and always will be part of me.

So very very close to our own personal heartstrings of loss and hope to make sense of our loss especially when it's such a great tragedy and trauma of losing one too young and early...

I feel it means that as all humans we reach for a concrete reason after the loss of a loved one. But as spiritual beings, we KNOW that after our loved ones pass on, only the earthly body is gone. That soul/spirit that made them who they were is still with us. My Grandmother when I asked her where we go when we die told me to look up at the night sky and all those little points of light are the souls of those that went before us. I learned in school later we are all made of "stardust". It even says in the song that "you are watching over me...". I just lost my Mom 10 months ago and I need her she is there.

i believe it could be someone getting married and their parents have passed on before them, and it played in remembrance of them.

I think this song is about maybe grieving over a loved lost one. this song reminds me very much of a bay area girl named Allison bayliss. The part"who can say for certain,maybe you're still here, I feel you all around me, your memories so clear, deep on the stillness, I can hear you speak, you're still an inspiration, can it be" reminds me a Lott of her because she ran away may 23,2011 and was claimed may 25,2011 that she had taken her own life on the golden gay bridge. if only she k ew hownmany people grieved over her loss and how many people came to her vigil because we all miss her. We all cared. I hope your still out there alloy. We love you. And we miss you terribly.

I think it is about a man whose wive hast passed away and he believes she is watching over him like and angel as he really misses her.
