Afton Isaacson 1981 (Ferron)

Recovery is a hard road for all who have addictions please listen close: lives can be destroyed as we all know don't let addictions keep you behind closed doors. Shun darkness out for a new destiny awaits Recovery shall light our path of new found fate there will be struggles along the way everyone goes through it listen as I say : get down on your knees Pray addictions will not over power us darkness will try to persuade remember Recovery is our guardian angel reaching out telling us to rise up like the Phoenix and take a stand addictions here us now enough is enough we have the upper hand.
