Lyrics

The Road to My Recovery - Back on Track
Emerson House, March 2017

Still have lots of work to do
To be the best I can be
But I’m finally on the road
To my, recovery recovery ….

Took a wrong turn, was lost I can’t look back
asked for directions now I’m back on track.
On track, on track
Now I’m back on track
asked for directions
now I’m back on track.

Hook

Needle in my arm
Kitchen cabinets burning
Bad decisions, desperation
Damaged, numb and yearning

Resting on OK
Fighting to fit in
Lost in a big house
Where do I begin?

Hook

Toxic rows of pain and fear
Afraid of the unknown
Persevere through the discomfort
Someday I’ll make a home
I’ll make a home
I’ll make a home
