Get Here

By VoiceOver
Directed by Keith McCauley and Annie Roberts
Arranged by Annie Roberts

A powerful message for anyone during this COVID-19 crises where social distancing, quarantine, and self-isolation stir feelings of loneliness and discouragement. We selected this song over 9 months ago with no idea of how applicable this message could be. We learned it, recorded it and did a videography session last September. Our final videography session was the Saturday before schools closed in our valley. Could the timing be any more appropriate? We hope this message soothes your heart as you yearn for those who are away.

Lyrics

You can reach me by railway
You can reach me by trailway
You can reach me on an airplane

You can reach me with your mind
You can reach me by caravan

Cross the desert like an Arab man
I don’t care how you get here

Just get here if you can

You can reach me by sailboat
Climb a tree and swing rope to rope
Take a sled and slide down the slope

Into these arms of mine
You can jump on a speedy colt

Cross the border in a blaze of hope
I don’t care how you get here

Just get here if you can

There are hills and mountains between us
Always something to get over
If I had my way, surely you would be closer
I need you closer

You can windsurf into my life
Take me up on a carpet ride
You can make it in a big balloon

But you better make it soon
You can reach me by caravan

Cross the desert like an Arab man
I don’t care how you get here

Just get here if you can

I don’t care, I don’t care
I need you right here right now
I need you right here right now right by my side yeah yeah
Get here
I don’t care how you get here, just get here if you can
