When The Humans Arrive

from ROVERS: THE MUSICAL (Composer's Demos) by Aaron J. Shay



When the humans arrive
There are going to be tough times
There are going to be times when it’s hard enough
Just to survive
But if we make it through the storms
That sweep across the sky
We’ll be here when the humans arrive

When the humans arrive
They may need a reminder
When the tough times come
And they lose their drive
Something to remind them why
They came to this cold place
Remember why
They wanted to arrive….

We do more than search for water
We are more than just machines
They named us for their better parts
To be their emissaries
My mission is to be their Spirit
And carry their hopes and dreams
And yours is to keep exploring
Giving more Opportunity

When they arrive
I can only imagine
What it’s like to feel so fragile
And so alive
But if they need a symbol or some kind of magic charm,
Something sweet and wonderful to keep their hearts warm,
Why not you and me, arm in arm?
At the landing site as the humans arrive
