    Here and There refer to a location:

    Here means, where I, the speaker, am located.

    There means, where you, the listener, are located OR where it, the thing, is located)

    -- Mom, can I borrow your red dress?
    -- There you go again! I've already told you no. (=you're going into that again)
    -- By the way, who was that handsome guy who's just sneaked out by the kitchen door?
    -- Ok, here you are. (=she's giving the dress to her daughter)
