"Here I Am" is the title of a popular song from 1981 (see 1981 in music) by the Australian group Air Supply. It was written by Barry & Robin Gibb and included on the group's album The One That You Love.
To prevent confused, the song was originally released as "Here I Am (Just When I Thought I Was Over You)" so as not to be confused by the group's No. 1 hit song "The One That You Love" which contains the lyrics: "Here I am, the one that you love".
Released as a single in the fall of 1981, "Here I Am" peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in November of that year, remaining in the Top 40 for 15 weeks. The song also spent weeks atop the Billboard adult contemporary chart.
