Locked inside a lonely life
That I didn’t want to live
A misfit and a rebel child
I was restless in my skin
Always searching for the substance
That could bring me some relief
But now that’s over
Cuz I’m sober
And clean

With a little bit of patience
Forgiveness heals to the pain
I’ll keep working on the wreckage
The resentment and the shame
It’s progress not perfection
On this road that sets us free
The worst is over
Cuz I’m sober
And clean

I’m no angel
I’m no saint
But I’m willing to go to any lengths
I’m living out these promises
 I so clearly see 
When I change
My world will change with me

There are no broken people
There’s only broken hearts
When I learned to feel the feelings
My world didn’t fall apart
Now I fill my soul with substance
And I’m humbled to my knees
He watches over
Keeps me sober
And clean

He watches over
Keeps us sober
And clean
