‘Just To Be With You’ We Are Messengers Official Music Video

Home really is where the heart lives. At one time or another, everyone longs for the place and the people around whom they feel most comfortable. Homesickness is a real thing.

The song “Just To Be With You” by We Are Messengers is about someone experiencing homesickness. They wish they were at home with their family and would go to great lengths to be with them.

The video begins with the musician walking the streets of a wet and dreary city alone. It’s clear from the first few images of the singer that he is lonely, and longs for someplace else entirely. 

The first verse quickly reinforces the images we see in the video's opening moments. The lyrics detail the singer's painful and agonizing loneliness. He is in an unfamiliar location surrounded by people he does not know. The lyrics state he wants to go home.

“I’m not sure if it’s real
But I know I don’t belong
All I wanted was a home”

A few seconds later, the singer wakes up alone in a hotel room. He is once again all alone, and his sadness and loneliness have not subsided. Instead, text on the screen indicates that it has only increased. 

Next, we see why he longs for home and is willing to “cross the world, just to be with you.” He scrolls through pictures on a tablet of himself with his family. He wants to be with his loved ones. He’s tired of the lonely life he leads. 

Finally, the musician packs his belongings and exits the hotel room. The next images are of him opening the door to his vehicle as he places his items in the van. He is, the text in the video reads, headed home. 

Thankfully, no matter what we may be experiencing or how we’re feeling, we can call upon the Lord. He will be our comforter in times of worry and distress. 

Isaiah 66:13 “As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
