Janie Worm

From the CD Higher Ground

Please take my hand. Come dance with me.
Sail into my world, like a sweet ocean breeze.
I know in my life, what it is like to dance all alone.
So please if you can take my hand and dance me home.

Please swing and sway to the constant sound.
And sing in my ear as we cover new ground.
I know that my life is filled with a light since you came along.
So please if you can take my hand and dance me home.

Instrumental

Step close with me through the ups and the downs.
Dance cheek to cheek. Let the love wrap around.
I know that my life, the Sound and the Light, will never be done.
But still if you can, take my hand and dance me home.

With you in my life, this dance day and night, will be much more fun.
So please if you can take my hand and dance me home.
So please if you can take my hand and dance me home.

From Higher Ground, released 2003​.​

Insider Notes

Nature touches my heart as much as anything; the expanse of the ocean a great metaphor for opening up to receive more love… so that I might give more to life. The sweet call of birds is a celebration and an invitation to go deeper.  The sounds of ocean waves and seagulls add to the beauty of this melody. I also just discovered a poem by Hafiz that so fittingly states: “Every child has known God, not the God of names, not the God of don’t, not the God who ever does anything weird, but the God who knows only four words and keeps repeating them saying, ‘Come dance with me.'”
