In your everyday life you search for glory.
I'm addicted to meth and here is my story.
I went to high school just like you did.
I even had three kids,
but still I lacked confidence; I was sick to death,
so at the age of 20 I was introduced to meth.
I snorted a line.
Little did I know how my world would unwind.
I was spending all my cash on dope.
It wasn't long till I lost all hope
I was wheelin' and dealin', breakin' even at best
I was paying my dealer and doing the rest.
The relationship with my kids suffered the most
I was doing so many drugs; we weren't even close.
Now I'm locked up, cold sober.
I have the chance to start all over
I'm going to take the chance to have a life.
I'm going to start over as Joe Hay's wife.
