Moments – Emerson Drive

I have this song stuck in my head. I’m sure I’ve shared it here before. I’m sharing it again because I feel like it.

I can relate to this song in so many ways within my recovery and within my life in general. I did something I thought I couldn’t do. I moved cross country with my dogs and I’m sitting in my new apartment in Kentucky. Who would have thought I could do this? I certainly didn’t know I could. What a blessed and wonderful life I have.

Moments by Emerson Drive

I was comin’ to the end of a long long walk
When a man crawled out of a cardboard box
Under the E Street Bridge – followed me on to it
I went out halfway across with that homeless shadow taggin’ along
So I dug for some change – wouldn’t need it anyway
He took it looking just a bit ashamed
He said you know I haven’t always been this way

I’ve had my moments
Days in the sun, moments
I was second to none, moments
When I knew I did what I thought I couldn’t do
Like that plane ride, coming home from the war
That summer, my son was born
Memories, like a coat so warm the cold wind can’t get through
Looking at me now you might not know it
But I’ve had my moments

Well I stood there tryin’ to find my nerve
Wondering if a single soul on earth would care at all
Miss me when I’m gone
That old man just kept hangin’ around
Lookin’ at me, lookin’ down I think he recognized
That look in my eyes
Standing with him there I felt ashamed
I said you know I haven’t always been this way

I’ve had my moments
Days in the sun, moments
I was second to none, moments
When I knew I did what I thought I couldn’t do
Like the day I, walked away from the wine
For a woman, who became my wife
And a love that, when it was right could always see me through
Looking at me know you might not know it
I’ve had my moments

I know somewhere around a trash can fire tonight
That old man tells his story
One more time –
He says,

I’ve had my moments
Days in the sun, moments
I was second to none, moments
When I knew I did what I thought I couldn’t do
Like that cool night, on the E Street Bridge
When a young man, almost ended it
I was right there, wasn’t scared a bit
And I helped to pull him through
Looking at me now you might not know it
Oh – looking at me now you might not know it
I’ve had my moments

I’ve had my moments
I’ve had my moments
I’ve had my moments
