Recovery Songs

Posted on

In Early Recovery, I came across music and lyrics that helped carry me through some of the rough times. Kirsten Virgard’s version of “A Boat on the Sea” from the film “Grace of my Heart” was one of those. Even now as I listen I am reminded of the temporary aspect of life and finding peace with letting go.
There’s a lamp that won’t light
In my poetry room
And children out playing
And a big full moon
My man’s barricaded there in his womb
He’ll be coming out soon
I remember when I met him
He blew in like the wind
No one was more beautiful
Or dangerous than him
He blew through my soul
Like a tangerine wind
He’ll be coming out soon
 
I never knew I
Was built so strong
My heart
My heart is a boat on the sea
I never thought I
Was built for hurricanes
My heart
My heart is a boat on the sea
 
Luxury looms on a fog bound day
I’m not alone now and I’m not afraid
I’m clean and I’m free. It’s all stripped away
My debts are paid
I wonder if he ever looks down on the sea
And thinks about the time
He spent with me
I know everything’s exactly how it has to be
All’s right with this world
 
I never knew I
Was built so strong
My heart
My heart is a boat on the sea
I never thought I
Was built for hurricanes
My heart
My heart is a boat on the sea
 
In the cold and the dark
You’re the grace of my heart
In the cold and the dark
You’re the grace of my heart
In the cold and the dark
You’re the grace of my heart
