WILL I ALWAYS BE THE SHAME
I’ve been haunted by a ghost of me
Running through places nobody should be
Doing things, I know I shouldn’t
Wanting to stop but I just couldn’t
Running so hard, living life fast
Chasing a high that just wouldn’t last
I’ve been tied to a seat in the theater of my mind
Watching the movie of my life on rewind
So many years gone, how many more have I got?
Will I always be the shame? I sure hope not
I’ve decided to come to St. Christopher’s Inn,
I’m here to purge my life of such sin.
A day at a time I’m beginning to feel,
I’ll cry it all out and let myself heal.
I can finally say now as I couldn’t then,
I will never, ever be the shame again
