Lyrics: Funkagenda - One Day At A Time

One Day At A Time

My name is Joe Hawk and I'm a recovered alcoholic.
And I'm not the kind of guy you can tell.. to.. go as long as you want.
For me to stand here tonight and say that I am 20.
that I am well into my 21st year, and I live with an unmanageable life, that I am powerless,
and that I can justify all kinds of things because I am a powerless alcoholic with an unmanageable life would not be anything attractive for somebody sitting here.
Something came between me and alcohol,
more than 20 years ago, August 17th, 1982, and that, whatever it is has been there ever since
and I do not live an unmanageable life.
If I do some stupid thing, it's not because I'm an alcoholic anymore

Single released May 26, 2014 on Trice Recordings.

The greatest works of art begin from a place of deep emotional truth.

Those who are aware of the well-known phrase ‘One Day At A Time’ will know that it’s one of the creeds of Alcoholics Anonymous – it’s a sentiment that’s poignantly reinforced by the powerful recording at the beginning of this song.

This is the deeper, more raw side of Funkagenda, and the genuine core of this tune will undoubtedly deeply resonate with a broad cross-section of people.
