Janie Worm

From the CD Higher Ground

As sure as the spring comes;
as sure as the night, the night turns to day;
as sure as the birds sing their songs;
as sure as the flowers, the flowers in May;
I will always love you.
You shed light in the rain.
Forever, my love… forever and a day.

As sure as the sun shines;
as sure as the rainbow after the rain;
as sure as the star in the sky;
as sure as the moon that waxes and wanes;
I will always love you.
You add life to my day.
Forever, my love… forever and a day.

Storms will come and winds will blow, but love is like the air we breathe.
You my love are in my heart and soul and nothing can take that away from me.
You live in me.

As sure as the snow falls;
as sure as the river that rolls to the sea;
as sure as the wolf that howls and calls;
as sure as the strength of a solid oak tree;
I will always love you.
You are a gift on my way.
Forever, my love… forever and a day.
Forever, my love… forever and a day.

From Higher Ground, released 2003.

Insider Notes

When asked to sing at a wedding, I put my attention on the possibility of long-lasting love. As I did that, iconic images from nature filled my being. Although the physical world is temporary, these images felt as enduring as any temporal thing can be… and still my heart knows that the only thing everlasting is love itself. Pure love of the heart exists forever…. and a day. Soft picking guitar, violin and the harmonies of my brother, make this song beautiful and timeless.
