lyrics

you sit behind your screen,
till all you see is blurry,
you lose contact with your right arm
then your left, both legs turn to yarn

whatever happened to your hips, your waist?
disappeared, with your face,
you become one-dimensional
you can’t recall what it’s like to be full

why don’t ya, get up get up get up now
get up know who else is on your side
get up get up get up now get up
know who observes what you don’t see
who tells the long-forgotten story
who makes you feel, who makes you dance,
who else feeds your movement

you may be moving, shaking worlds around the sun,
you may think you’re speaking for everyone
but it takes a village to send a message
It takes all of us to make a difference

so, get up get up get up now
get up know who else is on your side
get up get up get up now get up
know who observes what you don’t see
who tells the long-forgotten story
who makes you feel, who makes you dance,
who else feeds your movement

Move me, won’t you move me…

Valerie Orth New York

"There is an honesty to Valerie Orth's music that is both brilliant and heartbreaking.”

A prolific songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Valerie integrates live instruments with electronic sounds. Her latest EP, “Wake You,” carries the upbeat production and warmth of Sylvan Esso, the unexpected rhythms and percussion of Tune-Yards, and the dark vocals and trippy-ness of Portishead.
