Kiwi singer Riiki Reid is back with a heartfelt introspective new ballad 'Home With Me.'
Writing the song after her first solo overseas journey, the Wellington artist reflects on the pain of saying goodbye to her partner at the airport when she first ventured out.
Initially penned about missing a partner, 'Home With Me' quickly evolved into a more general encapsulation of missing home, whatever or wherever that may be.
"At the time, the song was about missing the person you love and thinking, 'What if I never got to see that person again? Do they really know how much I care for them?'" Reid explains.
"Home isn’t the location or the amazing house with your dream decor in your dream country – it’s where your people are. Today, when I think about the meaning of the song – it’s a happy song because it reminds me of my love for the people around me."
