Lyrics

Every day, I Decide to Stay
Emerson House, December 2016

After all the hurt and all the pain
After all the times I’ve gone insane
I won’t let myself, run away
Now every day,
I decide to stay

It ain’t a secret no more,
I got a story to tell.
It’s my decision to change
to leave that journey from hell

After all the hurt and all the pain
After all the times I’ve gone insane
I won’t let myself, run away
Now every day,
I decide to stay

I don't want to be here
I enjoy being numb
so when I’m lonely and I’m scared
I think about my son

After all the hurt and all the pain
After all the times I’ve gone insane
I won’t let myself, run away
Now every day,
I decide to stay
