About Allison Merten

I have always loved performing music for others! I love a wide variety of genres. On my YouTube Page, I have posted covers of songs as well as songs that I have written. http://www.youtube.com/user/AllysMusicRoom. I made my lifelong dream come true and released my first album, TEMPTATION. :-) https://allisonmerten.com/debut-album-temptation/

I am grateful for all the people that I have in my life that are also trying to spread love and positivity during this extremely difficult time. ❤

One of those people sent me a silly meme this week that made me laugh. The meme was parodying the lyrics of “Get Together” by The Youngbloods.

After I finished laughing at the meme, I thought about how long it had been since I had heard the song “Get Together” by The Youngbloods. (Special thanks to my mom for playing her oldies station so that I could know these wonderful songs! 😉 )

I looked up the song on YouTube to see if it would be suitable for this week’s post, and I thought it was perfect! Here is the song:

 

Lyrics:

Love is but a song to sing
Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment’s sunlight
Fading in the grass
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It’s there at your command
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
I said, come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Right now
Right now

The message of this song is exactly what we need right now. Fear is widespread because no one knows when this pandemic will end. 😦

However, we can overcome or at least minimize that fear if we focus on uniting and supporting each other at this difficult time.

Either through social media, video platforms, or from a safe social distance, I hope that you can connect with others who will help spread love and positivity during this time. ❤

Please take good care of yourselves! ❤
