lyrics

Bring me comfort and the light
give me time to get it right
cuz I’ve been sober now for all of 14 days
and I can feel the difference in
the way I fill my skin
and how memory keeps flooding back again

I’ve been gone for far too long floating in a feint of fog
gettin lit on whiskey nips to shine it on
but when the morning sigh would come
‘neath the blinding truth of sun
how my heavy head shamefully hung

So bring me comfort and the light
give me time to get it right
cuz I’ve been sober now for all of 14 days
and I can feel the difference in
the way I fill my skin
and how memory keeps flooding back again

I’m too old to think the past can redeem this lot I’ve cast
but at least I’m trying now every day
and if I hold a constant hope
it’s to believe my body knows how to heal itself
so humbly I pray

To bring me comfort and the light
give me time to get it right
cuz I’ve been sober now for all of 14 days
and I can feel the difference in
this shedding of my skin
and how memory keeps flooding back again
