Trust me, I've been there, I've looked, I've searched and I know now, that there are no answers to be found in the bottom of a bottle or on the edge of a blade! Fighting Hard, Recovering, Rebuilding, REBORN. Moving on from addiction to a new life.
My destruction All my pride Could it all have been avoided If I had opened up my world Let them in sooner To the darkness And the despair Could the fall have been less If not for stubborn pride A typical man Wouldn’t show my weakness Not until it was too late And all came down Then pride fell And the light came in To set me free From the worst of myself To open the doors To a better path To a better life
Was I too proud To let them see To admit to the world Inside I was crumbling I did it myself Built a kingdom of ruin Full of empty bottles And broken promises From my tower I fell A king without a crown But today I stand thankful I fell into the Father’s arms Where my pride fell away There upon my knees With every tear It fell so far away So I called His name Asked Him for help My Lord, He answered me Lifting me to my feet So now I tell of who I was But also how He turned This sorry life around
