“Truly, I ain’t got no business here
But since my friends are here
I just came to kick it but really
I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room”
“Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can’t wait till we can break up outta here”
“So tell my people when they’re ready that I’m ready
And I’m standing by the TV with my beanie low
Yo I’ll be over here”
Alessia Cara is singing about a party she is not enjoying. “Here” in these lyrics means at the party but can also be metaphorical for where she is in here life. Either way, here and there are used frequently in English.
Here usually describes things that are in the immediate or close space to the speaker and sometimes their conversation partner. It can be used for any size, ranging from tiny to huge.
There is the opposite of ‘here’ and is used to describe spaces away from the speaker. It can refer to the space around a conversation partner, or away from both speakers. Just like here it can be used to describe anything of any size
Practice using here and there. Choose the best choice for each sentence. Good luck!
