Be With Me

Album: Back of my Lac (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song the narrator wants to be more than just friends with the object of his affections. J. Holiday (real name: Nahum Grymes) told www.singersroom.com that, "from my experience I think [that] when people have relationships nowadays it's more just an attraction or infatuation versus you really trying to build a good relationship. The message I am trying to put across in that song is stop being about the money and this and that, listen and make real love songs that people can relate to."
