Story behind the song
I dreamed this song a few months ago and woke up and wrote it down. Thanks to Ian Sproul of Victoria, Australia who was kind enough to do the drum track for the song.
Lyrics
“Get There” By Wig Nelson c. 2008 (1st Verse) Within a room of players - she had an angel’s face And she passed the guitar over to the next to take her place His hands laid down a melody on the golden strings that rang And one by one they all began and this is what they sang, they said I’m gonna’ (Chorus) Get there . . . yes, I’ll get there . . . I know I’ll get there in time. Yes, I’m gonna’ get there . . . I know I’ll get there . . . I know I’ll get there in time. (Refrain) It was like they opened up a door, and that I would be back for more I knew what I was looking for was there Forgive the ones who’ve done you wrong, He teaches peace and walks along And you can thank him for the song He shares, all you gotta’ do is (Chorus) Get there . . . yes, get there . . . all you gotta’ do is get there . . . get there in time Yes you’ll get there . . . I know you’re gonna get there . . . you will get there You’ll get there in time (2nd Verse) I opened up my eyes and I’d been sleeping in my bed And all at once was sorry it had all been in my head But long before the sorrow brought a teardrop to my eyes I realized that he who walks beside Him never dies, and I know I’m gonna” (Chorus) Get there . . yes, I’ll get there . . . I know I’ll get there in time . . . I know I’m gonna’ get there . . . yes, I’ll get there . . . I know I’ll get there in time. (3rd Verse) I looked across the water and the sky was burning down I saw the children crying but I could not hear a sound I prayed for a messiah that he help me understand He said I cannot love them fore I don’t live in their land, but he said I gotta’ (Chorus) Get there . . . yes, get there . . . I know I’ll get there . . . I’ll get there in time (Closing Phrase: You know we’re gonna’ get there in time)
