Lyrics

Cataumet June 2015

I don't remember exactly what day or time
the alcohol…….
took over my mind
My body was shaking and I found it hard to think……
I couldn't go an hour …
…..without another drink

We can learn to breathe,
Let ourselves slow down
We deserve better
This new life we found…
Get down on our knees
Help me higher power
Just get us through…. twenty four hours….

Looking to myself in the mirror when I’m high….
Staring into my eyes makes me want to cry….
Today is now
tomorrow never comes…
Somethines I ask myself ask self how has this begun

Chorus

The future’s full of chaos
says the carnage of my past…
The war inside my mind
doesn’t have to last
The future is coming one day at a time ….
the future is coming… and it will blow my mind….

Chorus

Just get us through…. twenty four hours…. One day at a time ….. 24 hours..one day at a time…24 hrs…one day at a time…24 hrs…one day at a time…24 hrs….one day at a time….
