Show Up


Lyrics

"Show Up"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Share your stuff with someone else

Take a real picture down off your shelf

And bring it to me physically

Text a message to yourself

To come on over and just be yourself

Without your avatar identity


Don't even use the phone, you know I’m always at home


Show up, the next time you're around

I give the world wide web a big thumb's down

Show up, to my town, and knock on the door

‘Cause life online can be such a bore

I'll make coffee and we'll raise a cup

If you just show up


Follow me around in your car

Like paparazzi do to a star

If you feel you just gotta keep track

Like me, but say it to my face

When you're standing right here in my place

Then for sure I'll like you back


Don't even use the phone, you know I’m always at home


Show up, the next time you're around

I give the world wide web a big thumb's down

Show up, to my town, and knock on the door

‘Cause life online can be such a bore

I'll make coffee and we'll raise a cup

If you just show up


Friend all the people you once met

I don't care how many you get

Facebook is such a drug

Chat me up in person some day

Video's just not the same

I'm not one for virtual hugs


Don't even use the phone, you know I’m always at home


Show up, be here for me

It's half the battle and it's always free

Show up, to my house, and just ring the bell

Break out of your internet jail cell

I'll make coffee and we'll raise a cup

If you just show up
