Lyrics

Cataumet June 2016

I know I’ve surrendered
because I have hope
I’m free from the booze,
I’m free from the dope
I’m on the road to feeling whole
I win the war when I give up control
I win the war when I give up control

I don’t understand how this happened to me
They’re asking me to give up my identity
The road long, I pray for thee
I hope we make it to the sea.

I know I’ve surrendered
because I have hope
I’m free from the booze,
I’m free from the dope
I’m on the road to feeling whole
I win the war when I give up control
I win the war when I give up control

I’ve been lying,
I’ve been crying,
but here I am
I’m still trying
cuz I know inside
that I’m dying

I know I’ve surrendered
because I have hope
I’m free from the booze,
I’m free from the dope
I’m on the road to feeling whole
I win the war when I give up control
I win the war when I give up control
