    I am listening John Lennon while I am Cleaning out cabinets, long overdue.
    Who says you can’t Rock in recovery.

    Instant Karma

    John Lennon

    Instant Karma’s gonna get you
    Gonna knock you right on the head
    You better get yourself together
    Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead
    What in the world you thinking of
    Laughing in the face of love
    What on earth you tryin’ to do
    It’s up to you, yeah you

    Instant Karma’s gonna get you
    Gonna look you right in the face
    Better get yourself together darlin’
    Join the human race
    How in the world you gonna see
    Laughin’ at fools like me
    Who in the hell d’you think you are
    A super star
    Well, right you are

    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Well we all shine on
    Ev’ryone come on

    Instant Karma’s gonna get you
    Gonna knock you off your feet
    Better recognize your brothers
    Ev’ryone you meet
    Why in the world are we here
    Surely not to live in pain and fear
    Why on earth are you there
    When you’re ev’rywhere
    Come and get your share

    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Yeah we all shine on
    Come on and on and on on on
    Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah

    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Yeah we all shine on
    On and on and on on and on

    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Yeah we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun

    I am actually looking for the name of a song I once heard.

    It’s a country song and I don’t know the title or artist.

    The only part I remember is:

    “Honey, I am broken.
    Although I was only jokin’…..”

    She then goes on to agree with him that is life is indeed “broken” because of his addiction (I think).

    I know this is very vague but if any knows what it is please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Isn’t music just SO great! It’s the one thing in my life I’ve always been truely passionate about.

    STAIND LYRICS
    “So Far Away”

    this is my life
    its not what it was before
    all these feelings i’ve shared
    and these are my dreams
    that i’d never lived before
    somebody shake me
    ’cause i
    i must be sleeping

    [chorus]
    now that we’re here,
    it’s so far away
    all the struggle we thought was in vain
    all the mistakes,
    one life contained
    they all finally start to go away
    now that we’re here its so far away
    and i feel like i can face the day i can forgive
    and i’m not ashamed to be the person that i am today

    these are my words
    that i’ve never said before
    i think i’m doing okay
    and this is the smile
    that i’ve never shown before

    somebody shake me ’cause i
    i must be sleeping

    [chorus]

    i’m so afraid of waking
    please don’t shake me
    afraid of waking
    please don’t shake me

    [chorus]

    oh yeah dot, love the cube. I’ve been known to dig on some of that oldschool gansta rap too.

    One of my favorites….

    Jah Wobble and the Invaders of the Heart…

    Visions of You…on “Rising above Bedlam”

    “I’m not numbed out anymore
    No longer filled with hate and pain
    No longer drenched in shame
    I’m not numbed out anymore….

    The kingdom of heaven lies inside…”

    DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO (HEARTBREAKER)
    (M. Jagger/K. Richards)

    The po-lice in New York City
    They chased a boy right through the park
    In a case of mistaken identity
    They put a bullet through his heart

    Heart breakers with your forty four
    I wanna tear your world apart
    You heart breaker with your forty four
    I wanna tear your world a part

    A ten year old girl on a street corner
    Sticking needles in her arm
    She died in the dirt of an alleyway
    Her mother said she had no chance, no chance!
    Heart breaker, heart breaker
    She stuck the pins right in her heart
    Heart breaker, a pain maker
    Stole the love right out of you heart

    Oh yeah (doo, doo doo doo doo)
    Oh yeah (doo doo doo, doo doo)
    I wanna tear that word apart

    Oh yeah (doo, doo doo doo doo)
    Oh yeah (doo doo doo doo doo)
    I wanna tear that word apart

    Heart breaker, heart breaker
    You stole the love right out of my heart
    Heart breaker, heart breaker
    I wanna tear your world apart

    Heart breaker, heart breaker
    Stole the love right out, stole the love right out

    Doo, doo doo doo doo doo
    Ah yeah, you shot the kid, he had no chance
    Doo doo, doo doo do
    Ah yeah, Ah yeah, you stuck pins right in her heart
    Doo doo, doo doo do
    You heart breaker, I wanna tear your world apart
    Doo doo, doo doo do……..
