  • (When I am with you)
    (When I am with you)
    (When I am with you)
    (Whe-, no place I'd rather be)
    (When I am with you)
    (When I am with you)
    (When I am with you)
    (Whe-, no place I'd rather be)
    (When I am with you)
    (When I am with you)
    (When I am with you)
    (Whe-, no place I'd rather be)
    (When I am with you)
    (When I am with you)
    (When I am with you)
    (Whe-, no place I'd rather be)

    We're a thousand miles from comfort, we have traveled land and sea
    But as long as you are with me, there's no place I'd rather be
    I would wait forever, exalted in the scene
    As long as I am with you, my heart continues to beat

    With every step we take, Kyoto to The Bay
    Strolling so casually
    We're different and the same, gave you another name
    Switch up the batteries

    If you gave me a chance I would take it
    It's a shot in the dark but I'll make it
    Know with all of your heart, you can't shame me
    When I am with you, there's no place I'd rather be

    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be
    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be
    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be
    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be

    We staked out on a mission to find our inner peace
    Make it everlasting so nothing's incomplete
    It's easy being with you, sacred simplicity
    As long as we're together, there's no place I'd rather be

    With every step we take, Kyoto to The Bay
    Strolling so casually
    We're different and the same, gave you another name
    Switch up the batteries

    If you gave me a chance I would take it
    It's a shot in the dark but I'll make it
    Know with all of your heart, you can't shame me
    When I am with you, there's no place I'd rather be

    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be
    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be
    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be

    When I am with you, there's no place I'd rather be (Yeah)

    Oh, oh
    Be be be be be be be be be
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah

    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be
    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be
    N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be

    When I am with you, there's no place I'd rather be Writer/s: Nicole Marshall, Jack Patterson, Grace Chatto, Jimmy Napes

  • Badger from Birmingham I wrote my own version to Rather Be ,it's called "lettuce and celery " I would love Jimmy Napes from Clean Bandit to hear it.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhThere's a huskiness in the female's voice that gives perfect emotion to the lyrics. This song is subtle and easy to listen to while your thoughts are elsewhere; it's great background music. A universal theme anyone can relate to, it's about putting your feelings of love on the line and hoping that your special someone wants to take a leap of faith with you that it will work out, because no matter where or in what circumstances, there's no place you'd rather be than with that person.
