You Should Be Here – Cole Swindell [Video & Lyrics]

Cole Swindell's new single called, "You Should Be Here" is now climbing the Billboard Hot Country charts. Cole wrote the song with Ashley Gorley when he was out touring with Luke Bryan.

Cole said that he knew the direction he wanted to take the song when he first heard the title, “You Should Be Here”. It was only 2 years since he lost his father to an accident. He felt like there was a lot of himself he could put into this song. However, Cole Swindell also points out that the lyrics were structured so that they could be applied to many different situations. For Cole, this song is about his father; however, for others it could be about anyone that’s not with you sharing a memory.

“You Should Be Here” Lyrics

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.
