From the CD Higher Ground

If you can my little one peer out at the night.
In the sky if you look real hard, you’ll see sparkles of light.
And if the night starts closing in, and the memories of monsters begin,
step into a circle of stars. They’ll protect you wherever you are.

If you can my little one you can hold my hand.
I’m with you. I’m in your heart and I’ll do what I can.
And if the darkness feels too cold, and the shadows won’t leave you alone, step into a circle of stars. They’ll protect you wherever you are.

Ohhhhh……
Hey la, hey la, la, la
Hey la, hey la, la, la

I love you, my little one, and I always will;
as sure and true as your beating heart, no matter how you may feel.
But if life feels lonely and hard. If you’re sad and heavy of heart, step into a circle of stars ’cause you are loved wherever you are.

Now go to sleep, my little one, with a heart full of joy.
May your travels bring you love, as you learn and explore.
And if your dreams come crashing down, and you feel like there’s no one around, step into a circle of stars ’cause you are loved wherever you are.

Sweet, sweet dreams, little one. I love you.

From Higher Ground, released 2003.

Insider Notes

​Sometimes my heart needs a lullaby when I remember things from the past or consider events of the future. It seems maybe everyone can use a lullaby now and then for the reassurance that they are loved, cherished and safe. Mostly presented with a capella voices this song comforts my heart.
