Here Without You

“I’m here without you baby, but you’re still on my lonely mind,
I think about you baby, and I dream about you all the time,
I’m here without you baby, but you’re still with me in my dreams,
And tonight, it’s only you and me.”

There’s a song called “Here Without You” by 3 Doors Down, which is one of mine and Hari’s personal favourites. We first discovered it on YouTube, as it happens, through a machinima made in World of Warcraft which uses it as the main theme song, and it’s stuck with us ever since.

The song is about missing a loved one, and while I listen to it a lot when Hari is around, if she’s away I often find it really hard to listen to since I’m constantly reminded of her and it makes me miss her so much. It’s a very moving song and it nearly had me in tears once when she was staying with her parents and I was on my own in Bradford. Often, if she’s not around and iTunes randomly picks the song, I skip to something more upbeat.


  1. Neil,
    Thats the most beautiful thing I’ve ever read, I know how you feel to be this in love, and I’m so happy you’ve found this happiness with someone.
    I’m actually crying tears of piss here for you.

  5. Shut up ben you big fruit, I am the real Hari and ill fight you to prove it xxx
    P.S you couldnt “get it on” with a cat.

  6. Hari, if that IS your real name, which i seriously doubt it is not, i’m sure your just some spotty teenager that has nothing better to do except slate other peoples choices in music and attitudes towards sex and love.
    please leave us alone

  7. Considering that Hari was asleep when these comments were posted, and were posted using a fake email address from a completely different IP address to the ones she normally uses, I doubt that you are the really Hari. Pwned.
