Lyrics by

Janie Worm

From the CD Closer to Home

I’m sorry, I made you cry last night.
I didn’t know how to tell you something wasn’t quite right.
I could feel your sorrow; see the pain in your eyes,
and as we wept into tomorrow, I held you tight. I held you tight.

CH: The truth is the hardest thing, to honor inside.
If I didn’t tell you, I’d be living a lie.
I still love you and I wish you well.

I’m sorry, I had to end it this way.
But my heart is my guide. It never leads me astray.
You showed me passion; lit the fire of desire.
And I can hear you asking, “How can this be right? How can this be right?”

CH: The truth is the hardest thing, to honor inside.
If I didn’t tell you, I’d be living a lie.
I still love you and I wish you well.

I’m sorry, I made you cry last night.

From Closer To Home, released 2003.

Insider Notes

The lyrics of this piece say it all. When I am honest with myself and courageous enough to be authentic, I often know the next step to take. Sometimes that means letting go of what I thought was going to be next, and trusting the process.
