Come On Up To The House – Tom Waits – Lau

All you’re crying don’t do no good.
Come on down off the cross, we could use the wood.

Ups & Downs – Gareth Lee & Annie Baylis

These Up’s and Down’s

I’m learning to cope with the years that I lost.

One Day at a Time – Blue Rose Code

Music find of the day, from Blue Rose Code

A Scottish Alt-Folk group the Lyrics to this track will hit home to anyone in Recovery.

Oddly works, Slow Ass Jolene is Dolly Parton slowed down 25%

Folk version of (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right – Beastie Boys Cover

Odd but it works

Frank Turner – Recovery

Another great track from Frank which should ring a bell for Alcoholic’s and Addicts alike.

 

And you know your life is heading in a questionable
direction when you’re off in days with strangers and you can’t remember
anything except way you sound when you told me you didn’t know what I
should do.

 

 

Its’ a long road out to recovery from here, a long way back to the light.
A long road out to recovery from here, a long way back to what’s right.

 

 

And so I wake up in the morning just like every other day and like every
boring blues song I get swallowed by the pain, so I fumble for your figure
in the darkness just to make it go away. But you’re not lying there any
longer and I know that its my fault so I been crawling on the floor and
pounding on the walls and I’ve been divvying my darkness and serotonin
boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts.
