Song Description

Related to victims of violence.

Story Behind the Song

School shootings at Columbine and Sandy Hook...as well as the movie theatre in Aurora, CO which was showing the Dark Knight. My sister happened to watch a movie earlier in the day in the same theatre as the shooting. I watched the news on TV discussing the shooting...they showed the white crosses and a mourner holding a sign that said, "Say hello to Jesus." Thus, the beginning of my song...the song is not religious...but the sign caught my attention.

Lyrics

When You Get There

Copyright 2012
Words and Music by Bruce Edwin

Say hello to Jesus when you get there.
The sorrow in heaven is beyond compare.
A tragic situation...life can be unfair.
Say hello to Jesus when you get there.

White, wooden crosses standing on the Earth.
If there's a silver lining, it could've been worse.
A senseless situation - a deed so adverse.
White, wooden crosses standing on the Earth.

It's so surreal - it's hard to explain.
Victims of violence . . . innocent souls,
Taken from us . . . their lives cut short.
Say hello to Jesus when you get there.

Tears of sadness falling from mourners' eyes.
Friends and family left to wonder why.
One hopes and prays it never happens again.
Tears of sadness falling from mourners' eyes.

(Instrumental)

It's so surreal - it's hard to explain.
Victims of violence . . . innocent souls,
Taken from us . . . their lives cut short.
Say hello to Jesus when you get there.

Say hello to Jesus when you get there.
The sorrow in heaven is beyond compare.
A tragic situation...life can be unfair.
Say hello to Jesus when you get there.
Say hello to Jesus when you get there.
