That I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
That I would be good if I got and stayed sick
That I would be good even if I gained ten pounds
That I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
That I would be great if I was no longer queen
That I would be grand if I was not all knowing
That I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
That I would be loved even when I was fuming
That I would be good even if I was clingy
That I would be good
Whether with or without you
I wish that I would… stay sober no matter what happens. I have my horror list” under which circumstances I could drink. Many of us do. Today isn’t on that list but it’s close, it’s a hard day.
This song can be interpreted with hope as in “I will be fine whatever”… but it can also be interpreted as wish I could be good. An acknowledgement that you are not there yet.
Well today is a tough day and I’m craving…. But I know that I will be good…. one moment at a time.
