"Here Without You" is a song by American rock band 3 Doors Down. It was released in August 2003 as the third single from the album Away from the Sun. It peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, for the week ending November 8, 2003.[1] Only their songs "Kryptonite" and "When I'm Gone" reached higher positions on the chart, peaking at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively. It has since been certified 3x Platinum in the United States and Platinum in Australia. The song was a large success on pop radio, becoming their third No. 1 hit on the Mainstream Top 40 chart and their first No. 1 on the Adult Top 40 chart, where it stayed at the top for 13 weeks.

While one of their most popular songs, "Here Without You" was not a large hit on the band's home format of rock radio, peaking at No. 14 on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart and No. 22 on Alternative Songs. After the song's release, "Here Without You" remained a staple on pop and adult contemporary radio but not on rock or alternative radio. Worldwide, the song reached No. 2 in Australia, becoming the band's highest-charting single there. It also reached the top 10 in Denmark, the Netherlands, and New Zealand as well as the top 20 in Austria, Norway, and Sweden.

The song grew in popularity following the start of the Iraq War, and became an anthem for deployed troops and their families and friends at home.[2]

Content[edit]

Brad Arnold states that the main inspiration for this song was his now ex-wife. The song is about being away from someone and missing them, and it's not about how long you've gone, it's about the loneliness that comes with missing someone. It's also about a state of peace that comes with dreaming of the missed loved one.[3]
