Lyrics by

Janie Worm

From the CD Closer to Home

When I wake up all alone in a cold, dark room
I don’t know where I’m going; don’t know where I’ve been or what to do.
Then, I listen to the stillness for a key to something new.
And I call out to my angels to see me through.

Love will carry me. Love will carry me.
Fly away on silent wings, I surrender all my dreams.
Love will carry me. Love will carry me.
If I open my heart I see, love will carry me.

When I feel this achy cavern in the center of myself,
I reach for words. I reach for truth and anything else.
I rock myself as Soul as a baby in the womb.
And I call out to my angels to see me through.

Love will carry me. Love will carry me.
Fly away on silent wings, I surrender all my dreams.
Love will carry me. Love will carry me.
If I open my heart I see, love will carry me.

Wake up from my own tears.
I release the fears.
Cleanse the window of my Soul.

Love will carry me. Love will carry me.
Love will carry me. Love will carry me.

From Closer To Home, released 2003.

Inside Notes

When recording this song, Gary Mula, the sound engineer, played around with the guitar track by doubling the speed. After we finished laughing about it, we agreed that it kinda sounded cool! So, if you listen close to the end of the tune, you will hear it running through the chorus. It’s amazing what is possible these days with recording equipment and software. =]

I would love to hear other creative things that people are doing with music!
