If there’s a way to get there
I will go
If there’s a way to get there
I will go
When the season’s ending
I will know

If the moon is rising
I’ll be there
If the moon is rising
I’ll be there
I’ve been looking for you
Everywhere

Notes
I’m writing this note from JFK International Airport in Queens, but by the time this is post is up, I’ll be in Istanbul. By now I’m reunited with my wife. By now I’ve glimpsed one of the great cities of the world for the first time.

This is a song about longing and distance and the passage of time. It is simple and slow. It was written in great anticipation, attempting to internalize the truth that patience pays off. I don’t know the amazing things I’m to see and do in the coming days, but I know my traveling companion. My wait is over now.
