Lyrics

Stay in the Moment
Cataumet Sept 2016

I don’t wanna fail
I don’t wanna go back
To the mess and the misery
of my past
I’m living in the moment,
one day at a time
This is our recovery,
it’s time to shine

I don’t want to fail
let my friends & family down
Go back to jail
Help me turn my life around

Stay in the moment,
take a deep breath
Calm my mind,
To avoid the stress (2x)

When I leave this place I have a choice,
I need to listen to only the voice
of my higher power the solution of my disease
don't worry about others I’m the only one I need to please

Now it’s time for me to take action
Can’t let you be my distraction
'Cuz you pull me ten steps back every time
You got me feeling like Michael Jackson
With all your chemical reactions
You have going on in my mind

It's us against you, It's time to be true
And be there for the people that we love

I don’t wanna fail
I don’t wanna go back
To the mess and the misery of my past
I’m living in the moment,
one day at a time
This is our recovery,
it’s time to shine
