  • Lyrics
  • This collaboration between Marshmello and Chvrches finds the Scottish band's singer Lauren Mayberry lamenting a growing love sickness.

    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 going in deep
    Cause I need you here with me
  • Marshmello's steady electronic production is markedly restrained and includes more guitars than on his earlier work.
  • Chvrches are one of a number of UK acts that Marshmello has collaborated with. Others include Anne-Marie ("Friends"), James Arthur ("You Can Cry") and Bastille "Happier."
  • Chvrches and Marshmello wrote the song with Steve Mac. The British hitmaker previously collaborated with Chvrches on their 2018 single "Miracle."
  • "Here With Me" marked Chvrches first visit to the US Hot 100.
  • The song was originally written by Chvrches and Steve Mac in London. They came up with a rough acoustic version, which people at their label and management company suggested might interest Marshmello. As soon as the producer heard it he was excited.

    "We were on tour at the time, so we would e-mail versions of the song back and forth [to Marshmello] - the first time we met him was when we tracked the final vocal," Mayberry recalled to Billboard. "It really felt like he was making room for our genre and we were making space for his; it wasn't like we were trying to shoehorn each other in. It was a very respectful environment where everybody wanted to hear what everybody was thinking."
