Lyrics by

Janie Worm

From the CD Set Me Free

Becoming you, everyday since your birth.
Becoming you with every thought, every word.
Becoming you for all the world to see.

Becoming you with every pain and the hurt.
Becoming you all the joy, all the mirth.
Becoming you is becoming to me.

And though life bruises and batters,
you always do what matters.
You open up your heart and soul to me.

Becoming you with every road you traverse.
Becoming you with every choice in your universe.
Becoming you is becoming to me.

(instrumental)

Becoming you everyday since your birth.
Becoming you with every thought, every word.
Becoming you for all the world to see.

Becoming you with every pain and the hurt.
Becoming you with all the joy, all the mirth.
Becoming you is becoming to me.

And when illusions are shattered,
you always do what matters.
You open your heart and soul to me.

Becoming you with every road you traverse.
Becoming you with every choice in your universe.
Becoming you is becoming a heart strong and loving.
Becoming you is becoming to me.

From Set Me Free, released 2017.

Insider Notes

A friend of mine asked me to write a song for his mother who was turning 90. She grew up in New York screaming for Frank Sinatra. So, as I put this request out to the universe and contemplated her life, this song came…with a fun, swing feel to it. I immediately heard brass and woodwinds reminiscent of that era. The players did an amazing job capturing the spirit of what I imagined. Enjoy!
