    This has probably already been mentioned, but what the hey….

    “Snowblind Friend”-Steppenwolf

    He said he wanted Heroin
    but praying was too slow
    So he bought a one way ticket
    on a airline made of snow

    did you say you saw your good friend
    flying low
    dying slow……..

    He’s not very well known in the US but ‘Angels’ by Robbie Williams, who struggled with addictions at one point in his career. I saw him sing it live.

    I sit and wait
    Does an angel contemplate my fate
    And do they know
    The places where we go
    When we’re grey and old
    ‘cos I have been told
    That salvation lets their wings unfold
    So when I’m lying in my bed
    Thoughts running through my head
    And I feel that love is dead
    I’m loving angels instead
    And through it all she offers me protection
    A lot of love and affection
    Whether I’m right or wrong
    And down the waterfall
    Wherever it may take me
    I know that life won’t break me
    When I come to call she won’t forsake me
    I’m loving angels instead
    When I’m feeling weak
    And my pain walks down a one way street
    I look above
    And I know I’ll always be blessed with love
    And as the feeling grows
    She breathes flesh to my bones
    And when love is dead
    I’m loving angels instead

    Primus-Laquerhead
    Ozzy Osbourne-Suicide Solution (‘wine is fine but whiskey’s quicker/suicide is slow with
    liquor’)

    both great examples of what not to do in musical form.

    Kelly Clarkson – Addicted

    Man, most of the songs bring back so many memories of my journey through addiction, but this one, particular, I used to listen to ALL the time, on her CD, before I took that first hit. It never really hit me (pun intended) what those lyrics might be about. Listening to it now… Wow.. What a difference…
    Great list. I’ve only gotten halfway through the thread. And I am getting tired.. About time to get some sleep..
    And I agree about the song “hurt”. I love Johnny Cash’s version. I have it on my Myspace…

    Hi..
    I read thru this entire thread….(Started yesterday and finished this morning…)
    I don’t think I saw this one…it’s been one of my favorites since I began dealing with my boyfriends addiction 20 years ago….

    “Passing by the Graveyard” Eddie Money

    Boy was a genius when he played the guitar
    He lost control of it and took it too far
    till one rainy night he never come home
    She waited in the front yard standing all alone…all alone standing all alone
    He was a fool he always played his role
    he couldn’t stop he had to go man go…
    He loved his whiskey,
    He loved his cocaine,
    He really loved that girl he’ll never see her again

    Passing by the graveyard
    It’s lonely and it’s so hard
    She never really goes far
    When she’s standing at the graveyard

    She knew the cops
    She knew the drs. too
    they tried to save him
    there was nothing they could do
    dont waste your life away like my long lost friend
    what happened to him can always happen again
    Yes it can
    Never have to go far
    Its lonely and it’s so hard
    when you’re thinking bout the graveyard

    when the cold wind blows
    and it sweeps across your shoulder
    now the whole world knows
    she’ll never let him go
    she just can’t let him go

    buried him deep
    in a piano box
    natures lying facing up
    it’s cold and loney
    when the wind sings it’s song
    remember him when you’re passing along

    Passing by the graveyard
    it’s lonely and it’s so hard
    she never really goes far
    when you’re thinking bout the graveyard

    Passing by the graveyard
    it’s lonely and it’s so hard
    you never have to go far
    when you’re passing by the graveyard

    Hey everyone,

    My AB told me about this song when he was doing recovery and I think it’s a really good song for recovery…there were so many pages to look through for this thread so sorry if it’s repeated…enjoy!

    Jesus Take the Wheel…by Carrie Underwood

    She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
    On a snow white Christmas Eve
    Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy with the baby in the backseat
    Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline
    It’d been a long hard year
    She had a lot on her mind and she didn’t pay attention
    she was going way too fast
    Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass
    She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
    She didn’t even have time to cry
    She was sooo scared
    She threw her hands up in the air

    Jesus take the wheel
    Take it from my hands
    Cause I can’t do this on my own
    I’m letting go
    So give me one more chance
    Save me from this road I’m on
    Jesus take the wheel

    It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
    And the car came to a stop
    She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat sleeping like a rock
    And for the first time in a long time
    She bowed her head to pray
    She said I’m sorry for the way
    I’ve been living my life
    I know I’ve got to change
    So from now on tonight

    Jesus take the wheel
    Take it from my hands
    Cause I can’t do this on my own
    I’m letting go
    So give me one more chance
    Save me from this road I’m on

    Ooh, Jesus take the wheel
    Ooh, I’m letting go
    So give me one more chance
    Save me from this road I’m on
    From this road I’m on
    Jesus take the wheel
    Ooh, take it, take it from me
    Ooh ooh wah ah ooh ooh ooh

    dmx – i wish ft seal

    lyrics–i wish dmx


    I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.

    I wish upon a star, wish upon the night.
    I wish that everything that happens in the dark, comes to the light.
    I wish upon the days, wish upon the dream.
    I wish that everybody only said, what they mean.
    I wish I could have caught you, before you fell.
    I wish nobody had to go to hell.
    I wish Adam wouldn’t have listened to Eve, when he bit the apple.
    I wish the Ku Klux Klan didn’t own Snapple.
    I wish that nobody had to ever know the pain, that comes with the mental rain.
    I wish that no parent ever have to bury a child.
    I wish you wouldn’t hurry to get wild.
    I wish for so many things, in so little time.
    I wish all this wishes weren’t mine.
    But all I can do, is wish and hope it comes true.
    Pray to God and hope it comes true!
    Have Faith!

    I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
    I wish I could be real, I wish I could meet you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.

    (I feel you X. Let me tell you what I wish for.)
    I’m wishin’ there was no hunger or starvation.
    That God’ll take back the nation from Lord’s sayin’.

    I wish I never popped pills, that I robbed from my grandpap, dyin’ in a hospital.
    I wish I didn’t
    I wish I could physically touch or see Jesus in the flesh leavin’ nothin’ left in the
    I’m wishin’ we were focused on the hopeless, broke n’, strugglin’ mothers who are dope sick.
    I’m wishin’ New Orleans hadn’t looked like an overflooded pool, with no chlorine.
    I’m wishin’ Bill Clinton would return and I don’t care, let him get his nuts sucked through the whole turn.
    I wish I wasn’t so selfish, I wish ain’t chase this cake, like I don’t know what wealth is.

    I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
    I wish I could be real, I wish I could meet you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.

    And the hours, and the minutes, and the seconds
    Are just as important, take, nothin’ for granted
    And try to hold on, to LOVE, cause now I,

    I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
    I wish I could be real, I wish I could meet you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.

    I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
    I wish I could be real, I wish I could meet you.
    I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
    Listen, listen, listen, listen.

    lyrics – weak and powerless apc



    Tilling my own grave to keep me level…

    Jam another dragon down the hole…

    Digging to the rhythm and the echo of a solitary siren…

    one that pushes me along, and leaves me so…

    desperate and ravenous…

    I’m so Weak and powerless over you…

    Someone feed the monkey while I dig in search of china…

    White as Dracula as I approach the bottom…

    so desperate and ravenous.

    I’m so Weak and powerless over you…

    Little angel, go away…

    Come again some other day…

    Devil has my ear today…

    I’ll never hear a word you say…

    He Promised I would find a little solace and some peace of mind…

    Whatever. just as long as I don’t feel so desperate and ravenous.

    I’m so Weak and powerless over you…

    “Dead Man’s Rope” – Sting

    A million footsteps, this left foot drags behind my right
    But I keep walking, from daybreak ’til the falling night
    And as days turn into weeks and years
    And years turn into lifetimes
    I just keep walking, like I’ve been walking for a thousand years

    Walk away in emptiness, walk away in sorrow,
    Walk away from yesterday, walk away tomorrow,

    If you’re walking to escape, to escape from your affliction
    You’d be walking in a great circle, a circle of addiction
    Did you ever wonder what you’d been carrying since the world was black?
    You see yourself in a looking glass with a tombstone on your back

    Walk away in emptiness, walk away in sorrow,
    Walk away from yesterday, walk away tomorrow,
    Walk away in anger, walk away in pain
    Walk away from life itself, walk into the rain

    All this wandering has led me to this place
    Inside the well of my memory, sweet rain of forgiveness
    I’m just hanging here in space

    Now I’m suspended between my darkest fears and dearest hope
    Yes I’ve been walking, now I’m hanging from a dead man’s rope
    With Hell below me, and Heaven in the sky above
    I’ve been walking, I’ve been walking away from Jesus’ love

    Walk away in emptiness, walk away in sorrow,
    Walk away from yesterday, walk away tomorrow,
    Walk away in anger, walk away in pain
    Walk away from life itself, walk into the rain

    All this wandering has led me to this place
    Inside the well of my memory, sweet rain of forgiveness
    I’m just hanging here in space

    The shadows fall
    Around my bed
    When the hand of an angel,
    The hand of an angel is reaching down above my head

    All this wandering has led me to this place
    Inside the well of my memory, sweet rain of forgiveness
    Now I’m walking in his grace
    I’m walking in his footsteps
    Walking in his footsteps,
    Walking in his footsteps

    All the days of my life I will walk with you
    All the days of my life I will talk with you
    All the days of my life I will share with you
    All the days of my life I will bear with you

    Walk away from emptiness, walk away from sorrow,
    Walk away from yesterday, walk away tomorrow,
    Walk away from anger, walk away from pain
    Walk away from anguish, walk into the rain.

    Something I wrote when I left…

    I want to wake up from this nightmare
    all the dreams and plans we made
    the memories of what we were becoming
    before you turned and began walking to your grave
    I don’t feel that I pushed you, just didn’t let you shove
    I wish that I could have done more, shown you all my love
    I protect my heart now, keep it close and hope you feel better someday
    enough to come around and let me know that you have found a better way
    I miss you and I love you with all my heart inside
    but I had to get off the roller coaster and stop the crazy ride

    Dead Skin – Crossfade

    So I’m the king of all these things
    Of this mess I have made
    Such a waste, what a shame
    My whole life is a fake

    Well I’m a bore
    And I’m sure
    I’m a thorn inside of you
    That has torn at you for years

    The alcohol
    The Demerol
    These things never could replace
    What a minute with you could do to put a smile on my face

    I’m a bore
    And I’m sure
    I’m a thorn inside of you
    That has torn at me for years

    I can’t get out of this dead skin
    (I can’t shed my skin)
    And I’m not sure where to begin
    I can’t get under my dead skin
    (I can’t shed my skin)
    Can I sleep ’til then?

    Phenobarbital and alcohol
    These two surely will do
    To knock me out
    Keep me down at least a day or two

    When I’m awake
    I can taste, how bitter I’ve become
    And it’s more than I can bare some days
    I pray someone will blow me away

    Make it quick, but let it burn
    So I can feel my life fade
    Well, I’m a waste and I can taste, how bitter I’ve become
    And it’s more than I can bare

    I can’t get out of this dead skin
    (I can’t shed my skin)
    And I’m not sure where to begin
    (Why can’t I begin again)
    I can’t get under my dead skin
    (I can’t shed my skin)
    Can I sleep ’til then?

    I can’t get out of this dead skin
    And I’m not sure where to begin
    I can’t get under my dead skin
    Can I sleep ’til then?

    I can’t get out of this dead skin
    (I can’t shed my skin)
    And I’m not sure where to begin
    (Why can’t I begin again)
    I can’t get under my dead skin
    (I can’t shed my skin)
    Can I sleep ’til then?

    Reminds me of my ex. This one always gets to me. Other good ones from them are Starless, Why, The Deepend, Someday, Coldm etc.
    This band is pretty much one of my favorites because they help me cope.
