Lyrics by

Janie Worm

From the CD Higher Ground

I get discouraged real easy; expect myself to be perfect right now… think that I should know, I should just know how to do things; think that I should know how to do everything by now.
But there’s a voice that sings reminding me.

Like a star shining, you are.
Ever reaching, climbing… you are.
Don’t forget the beauty of you and the love that carries you.

Like Spirit on the wind I ride, to places that I, don’t know if I’ve been before.
But I hold on tight and follow the light, and I sing to myself to surrender once more…. and I sing…

Like a star shining, you are.
Ever reaching, climbing… you are.
Don’t forget the beauty of you and the love that carries you.

Like a baby learning how to crawl, I stumble and fall and reach for a hand again.
I hold myself tight and rock through the night till I gather the strength to try it again and I sing…

Like a star shining, you are.
Ever reaching, climbing… you are.
Don’t forget the beauty of you and the love that carries you.

Oh please remember, tell me you will remember. Please remember who you are.

From Higher Ground, released 2003.

Insider Notes

​This song is to jog my memory that I am more than any limitation I can place on myself. I try to remember the expansive love that I am capable of in my life as I strive for my highest potential. Maybe we can all use a reminder now and then to take the time to remember who we truly are – a spark of the divine.
