Recover by Natasha Bedingfield
“Been torn apart,
Got so many scratches and scars,
Maybe they won’t all go away,
But they’ll fade,
Maybe time can mend us together.. again.
It’s not what we’ve done but, how far we’ve come.
We will recover
The worst is over, now.
All those fires we’ve been walking through.
And still we survive, somehow.
We will recover
The worst is behind.
And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover.
Everybody’s got a reason to cry,
And everybody fights but, not everyone survives.
And everybody’s searching, not everybody finds
And I’m still in recovery help me make it out alive“
Another song that goes back to my roots in my recovery journey! I was listening to this song again yesterday and it really helped me and I wanted to share it again for you all here. 🙂 I’ve definitely used the inspiration and hope from these lyrics into artwork before, for instance:
Created at the end of 2015.
I actually found this song used in someone’s recovery journey from an ED video. I really fell in love with it from then on. Plus, I love “Unwritten” by this artist, too. 🙂

The Fire In You by Juliet Weybret
“Let me tell you now what’s all in mind, you will see the sun in a matter of time, so don’t you dare think otherwise.
You’ve got the fire in you to make it through another day, you’ve got the fire in you to stay.
So let it burn through the pain and fight through the quicksands, you know it’s true, you’ve got the fire in you.
…Open up those pretty eyes ’cause there’s someone who’d really like to gaze into them for the rest of their life.
You matter more than all the stars in the sky. Don’t wanna hear you sing your last lullaby, so don’t you dare think otherwise….
Breathe in breathe out one day you’re gonna make ’em proud. Breathe in, breathe out.”
No matter how many new songs I add to my CL;MA playlist, there will always be my go-to original songs from when I first made the playlist. This is one of those go-to songs. I actually listened to this the other day, earlier in the week, when I was struggling and it really helped. I love her song, and I think it’s unique and so very heartfelt and true. That’s why I listen to it. It helps me to choose to live and to stay alive. 🙂
I hope it can do the same for you!
I definitely have been influenced by this song many a time in my recovery journey and have included the lyrics into drawings, or at least been inspired to do so (and if I haven’t it’s only because I haven’t YET). 🙂
Thank you, peeps. ❤
