Lyrics by

Janie Worm

From the CD Closer to Home

Will I ever know love – the light reflected in a gentle lover’s eyes?
Will I ever know love to hold my gaze and not turn away too shy?
Will I ever feel a body intertwined with mine as we both drift off to sleep?
Will I ever know love? Will love ever know me?

Will I ever know love – my stomach tickle as you flash your eyes at me?
Will I ever know love – that glowing feeling when we dance cheek to cheek?
Will I know my Soul companion when she enters my life?
Oh, where in the world can she be?
Will I ever know love? Will love ever know me?

Will I ever know love – the unspoken knowing of another across the room?
Will I ever know love to knock and visit without having to leave so soon?
Will I know the quiet beating of my lover’s heart in the rush of the world I see?
Will I ever know love? Will love ever know me?

Will I ever know love – your arms around me underneath a starry sky?
Will I ever know love – your hand warm on the small of my back when I cry?
Will the words, “I love you” softly rain on my ears, or is this just a cruel, distant dream?
Will I ever know love? Will love ever know me?

Will I ever know love – a burning passion that simmers till way past dawn?
Will I ever know love – a peaceful refuge where I can never stay too long?
Will I ever hold a heart as deep as mine and as rich as the wide open sea?
Will I ever know love? Will love ever know me?
Will I ever know love? Will she ever know me?

From Closer To Home, released 2003.

Insider Notes

Really, is there anything to desire other than love; giving and receiving it in some form or fashion each moment of every day?

I love these quotes by Rumi.

“Love is the bridge between you and everything.” ― Rumi

“What you seek is seeking you.” — Rumi

“They say there is a doorway from heart to heart, but what is the use of a door when there are no walls?” ― Rumi quotes
