Melissa Ferrick

Melissa is busy working on making a new music video for the title track off of her new album "Still Right Here" and she wants YOU to be a part of it.

Film yourself with your friends, family, extended family & pets in a place that feels like "home" to you. This could be your actual home, it could be the beach, it could be your local bar, coffee shop or LGBT community center, heck it could be the library!

Grab your FlipCam, iPhone, Camera, Camcorder or web cam and shoot footage of you hanging with your friends, in the place where you feel most at home. Standing, dancing, hugging, holding hands and most of all SMILING :) We want to see your enthusiasm, originality, creativity and unity! Use props, fruit, paper, however your creativity strikes you!

Footage can be as long or as short as you like, as long as the file isn't larger than 300MB, you are good to go! Then head over to our submission page fill out the release form. Once the form is submitted you will be directed to go to to upload your video. See detailed instructions below.

DEADLINE is August 14th, 2011 11:59 PM EST. That's it! You and your friends are on your way to appearing in a Melissa Ferrick music video!

Still Right Here

Hey big lonely
How much for your body
Hey big lonely
How much for control
And are you ready
For complete isolation
Are you ready
To watch your kingdom overthrown

You keep running
But you’re still right here
Behind your fear
You keep thinking
What you need is out there
Baby but you’re
Still right here
Yeah you’re
Still right here

Captured dolphin
Melissa Ferrick Smiling in your net
And I can see you drowning
But I can’t come cut you out of this
You’re a guilty survivor
Half alive half dead
So put down that crown baby and
Build yourself a bridge

You keep running
But you’re still right here
Behind your fear
You keep thinking
What you need is out there
Baby but you’re
Still right here
Yeah you’re
Still right here

So I’ve got to let you go
I’ve got to stop
How many warnings have I
Laughed off
Now I’m sticking up for you
Enough’s enough
Melissa Ferrick Enough’s enough
Enough’s enough
Enough’s enough

You keep running
But you’re still right here
Behind your fear
You keep thinking
What you need is out there
Baby but you’re
Still right here
Yeah you’re
Still right here
Yeah you’re still right here
Yeah you’re still right here
