You Should Be Here – Cole Swindell

It’s perfect outside it’s like God let me dial up the weather
Got the whole crew here, I ain’t seen some of them in forever.
It’s one of those never forget it, better stop and take it in kinda scenes.
Everything’s just right yeah except for one thing.

You should be here, standing with your arm around me here.
Cutting up, cracking a cold beer, saying cheers, hey y’all it’s sure been a good year.
It’s one of those moments, that’s got your name written all over it.
And you know that if I had just one wish it’d be that you didn’t have to miss this
You should be here.

You’d be taking way too many pictures on your phone.
Showing them off to everybody that you know back home.
And even some you don’t yeah
They say now you’re in a better place
And I would be too if I could see your face.

You should be here, standing with your arm around me here.
Cutting up, cracking a cold beer, saying cheers, hey y’all it’s sure been a good year.
It’s one of those moments, that’s got your name written all over it.
And you know that if I had just one wish it’d be that you didn’t have to miss this.
Aw you should be here.

You’d be loving this, you’d be freaking out, you’d be smiling, yeah
I know you’d be all about what’s going on right here right now.
God I wish somehow you could be here.

Oh you should be here.

Yeah this is one of those moments that’s got your name written all over it
And you know that if I have just one wish it’d be that you didn’t have to miss this.
Aw you should be here.
You should be here.

  1. I’m 46 and it’s been the longest 9 months of my life! My dad recently passed away of a massive heart in my mom’s arms. He’s been sick for along time but he found the strength to fight to honor my mom with their 50th wedding anniversary last january11. He passed away after a very long struggle He is extremely missed by all of us! He was a fantastic dad and grandfather! I think of him so much especially the day my oldest daughter graduated high school (she was the first he wasn’t here for!) It was such a blessed day and yet so ungodly sad! Holidays are not the same especially Christmas this year he was the one that always handed out the gifts and he always wanted to be the first to tell my oldest daughter “Happy Birthday” she was born Christmas morning
