You can reach me by railway, you can reach me by trailway
You can reach me on an airplane, you can reach me with your mind
You can reach me by caravan, cross the desert like an Arab man
I don't care how you get here, just get here if you can
You can reach me by sail boat, climb a tree and swing rope to rope
Take a sled and slide down the slope, into these arms of mine
You can jump on a speedy colt, cross the border in a blaze of hope
I don't care how you get here, just get here if you can

There are hills and mountains between us
Always something to get over
If I had my way, surely you would be closer
I need you closer oh closer

You can windsurf into my life, take me up on a carpet ride
You can make it in a big balloon, but you better make it soon
You can reach me by caravan, cross the desert like an Arab man
I don't care how you get here, just get here if you can

I don't care, I don't care,
I need you right here right now
I need you right here right now right by my side
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Get here, oh, oh, oh
I don't care how you get here,
Just get here if you can.

    She was missing the love of her life and wanted him to be near her. She was simply expressing her love for this man and at the same time stating that she not only needed him but, wanted him where she was badly. She gave so many examples of different routes he could take to get to her. She even gave him the option of simply thinking about the two of them together hence, "you can reach me in your mind." Then as she stated; "I don't care how you get here just get here if you can."
