I'm Always Here

Album: I'm Always Here (1989)
  • "I'm Always Here" was the theme song for Baywatch, an American TV series that ran from 1989-2001. Performed by Jimi Jamison, the original frontman for Survivor, this uptempo song appeared on a 10-track cassette promo by Mercury Records of Hamburg. It also appeared as a promo single by Scotti Brothers Records in 1994, in France, and as a CD promo in the UK on Direction Records in 2005. >>

  • Jamison is credited as the lyricist on this song along with Joe Henry, who co-wrote the Rascal Flatts hit "Skin" (this is not the Joe Henry who wrote Madonna's "Don't Tell Me"). The music is credited to Cory Lerios and John D'Andrea.
  • With the line, "I won't let you out of my sight," this is an appropriate song for a TV series about lifeguards. The song itself is more likely a commitment to a girl, telling her that he will always be there for her.

  • Rachel from TucsonThere is an interview on You Tube (Medianiteradio) with Jimi stating that these are Christian lyrics. This was actually a Christian song but no one realized it at the time except for a writer for Playboy magazine!
