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)
