Lyrics

Together We Can Walk Thru the Pain
Miller House, December 2016

We are scared to death scared to change…
together we can walk
thru the pain

I kept falling down
so many times before…
I can’t take no more I walked right thru the door
I was filled with guilt
I was filled with shame
They shook my hand and learned my name
Walking thru the pain

We are scared to death scared to change…
together we can walk
thru the pain

I spent days and nights
walking through the rain,
but this rain was teardrops
from all my mothers pain
I took 12 baby steps it helped me to change
Now my life will never be the same

We are scared to death scared to change…
together we can walk
thru the pain

Addiction made me cheat, steal, and lie,
it ruled my life
it made me want to die now I’m here
I don’t have to suffer
because check it out
addicts do recover

We are scared to death scared to change…
together we can walk
thru the pain
