Fingers running through lush hair,
Touch, taste that temptation
Firing up nerve endings, setting the heart ablaze
Momentary pleasure, memories aplenty
I recollect, sipping orange juice in rehab.
Kisses as deep as the universe
Swiveling in slow motion
Pupils changing color – black and brown, black and brown
Soot-stained souls merging into one another, the hot yellow energy emerging
I reminisce, sipping orange juice in rehab.
There came a truth worse than a lie
Blinded by honesty, judgment befriended naivety
Another person with drunken plight,
Call it a mistake and call it a night,
I dredge up, sipping orange juice in rehab.
You be a distraction, yet you be a sight
You be plenty, yet you be slight
You not be wrong, you not be right
You and I cannot be we. Together a future, cannot the heart see
I recall, sipping orange juice in rehab.
Broken expectations and dreams,
Efforts and time gone to waste,
Running away from the battle, hoping to go unscathed?
How could that ever be?
One day at a time, one day at a time
I remind myself, sipping orange juice in rehab.
