Pharrell Williams Goes From ‘Happy’ To ‘Here’ For ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’

Pharrell Williams is certainly happy about his upbeat tune. What started as a single for the animated summer sequel, Despicable Me 2, has launched into a worldwide sensation. Many videos have surfaced on YouTube with people dancing and singing along to the song, and HitFix reports that “Happy” has been number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks in a row.

His latest is yet another one to be featured on a soundtrack to a summer movie sequel. This time, Pharrell Williams slows it down for the web-slinging, Marvel adventure, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

“Here” is a love ballad with string arrangement done by Hans Zimmer. The song has lyrics that sound like they hit the right moments when Peter Parker declares his love for Gwen Stacey. It’s about a struggle between a man and a woman about their relationship and being “here again.” Here is a sample of the chorus:

“And I, I promise on all existence/If it breathes then it is our witness/We have unfinished business/You and I/And so my word is that I’ll cross those bridges/With zero regret for limits/And distance, you and I.”

And here are some other lyrics from the Pharrell Williams ballad:

“My dear, it seems we’re here again/Was there a glitch in my message/Isn’t it clear we’re here again/Let’s get new GPSs.”
