Lyrics by

Janie Worm

From the CD Higher Ground

I woke up and fell out of the bed,
bad thoughts going through my head.
I needed an attitude adjustment quick.
Broke the coffee pot. There goes the caffeine.
No time to figure out the waking dream.
I just knew what I was wading in was thick.

I didn’t know what to do. Stopped to sing a simple HU, and the message that came through was this:
If love can find me, and if love will come. If love will shine on me, I will welcome it; try to welcome it with open arms.

I went to work; got stuck in a traffic jam.
I did my best to try and rush on in.
But my boss, you know he looked at me with a frown.
He motioned me to move toward his office door.
I walk slow, don’t know what’s in store.
He says to me don’t even bother sitting down.

I didn’t know what to do. Stopped to sing a simple HU, and the message that came through was this:
If love can find me, and if love will come. If love will shine on me, I will welcome it; try to welcome it with open arms.

I headed home completely in a daze.
Reviewed the morning, it all seemed so crazy.
I didn’t know if I should break down, cry or scream.
I turned around, thought I heard a car horn.
It sounded familiar, just like my alarm.
I awoke and I was so glad that this was a dream.

Then I knew just what to do. Sat up and sang a simple HU, and the message that came through was this:
I knew love had found me. I knew love had come. I knew love had shown me. I had welcomed it. I welcomed it with open arms.

Oh yes, love will find me, and love it comes, and love it shines on me. I can welcome it, try to welcome it with open arms.

From Higher Ground, released 2003​.
