Elizabeth Goodfellow I love the rhythmic motif of the hook on the lyric "out of the way" - so light and playful and fun!

about

I wrote this song in March of 2020, right when the pandemic hit. It was a song to try and project hope and a better future for all of us when we defeat the pandemic and remove our president and administration so we can all heal. Get ready, because love is so much more powerful and enduring than fear. We have to believe it to see it. Now that Biden is our president and the vaccine is making progress, the song feels like a premonition that came true. It also really helped me to write and play this song during a time that was so uncertain, scary, sad, and unpredictable. I hope the song helps others to connect with hope and a brighter future for us all. That it is inevitable.

lyrics

Get Ready

I saw it hovering
Our recovery
It was not afraid
Of anything

Cause you can't stop this
Inertia is
What's natural
So...

Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way

Better get ready, better hold steady

I saw the plummeting
Of the coveting
And the space it made
For coloring

Cause you can't stop this
Inertia is
What's natural
So...

Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way

Did you know it's done?
Did you know we won?
And the smiles come running
Each reunion stunning

Cause you can't stop this
Inertia is
What's natural
So...

Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way
Out of the way out of the way

about

Katie Haverly Tucson, Arizona

"A heartrending album that is Katie Haverly's eighth release - Matter adroitly navigates rock, pop, and folk genres, combining jazz sensibilities with poetically introspective lyrics. The gorgeous vocals and tight musicianship pull you in to listen closely, to mull the words, and deeply appreciate the profoundly personal stories she's scribed."

-Jamie Manser, Zocalo Magazine, March 2020
