A friend of mine, John Cowan, a survivor, was given the lyrics to this song in about 20 minutes. It is gut wrenching and heart wrenching and healing and is his story. It is called "Drown" and he courageously put it on his "New Tattoo" CD and available as a download on Amazon:

“Drown” lyrics by John Cowan, music by Darrell Scott

Under the big top the lights go dim
The clowns all hide and the ringmaster grins
His belt was noosed around my wrist
His smile turned in to an angry twist.

Too young to know better just what was wrong.
My insides turned where they didn’t belong
And all I could do was hold back the tears
And wait for his thirst to go back to his beer.

And so another and another and another was made
To slug through this life so alone and afraid.

So I lied and I stole and I ate all I could
Just to have some control---as if I would.
And there I was awful and fat
He said if I told I’d die for that.

Tell me when do the lights leave the gleam in the eyes
Of children molested by men twice their size
Is it the moment of entry, the rush of surprise
Or knowing their lives will only be lies.

I knew there’d be solace as there always will be
For the pit of a soul that’s forever hungry.
A needle a bottle a warm piece of flesh
A return to the thing that always felt best.

And if God is a spirit tell me where does he go
Is he busy with devils confessing their woes?

I guess it’s up to us to find one another
And try and touch souls and try to recover
The lives we’re making all over again
In hope that some child will never again
Drown….drown….drown

Hey Sgt Pepper and Bumblebee-I really enjoyed your posts. Music and lyrics can be very touching.

I actually recently came across a song that is extremely moving. It's about dealing with our difficulties and learning that some things are out of our control.

"What I cannot change" by LeAnn Rimes

And here is a great live vocal of this song:

Don't Let It Bring You Down -- Paul McCartney & Wings

Though some things in life are hard to bear
Don't let it bring you down

Should the sand of time run out on you
Don't let it bring you down

Don't go down - don't go underground
Things seem strange, but they change
How they change

Up and down your carousel will go
Don't let it bring you down

Don't go down - don't get out of town
Get to know how it goes, how it goes

When the price you have to pay is high
Don't let it bring you down.

Now that I think about it, anything that you like playing loud can be good for you. Yesterday I bought a 3 disc set called The Jimi Hendrix Experience BBC Sessions. It came from 2nd and Charles, the best big chain store that you can get new and used materials from. It cost $30. It has a Beatles Anthology feel to it.

As the weight of the holiday season lifts I find myself thinking of "Weight of the World". It's the first song on Ringo Starr's 1993 album Time Takes Time. It's a good start for the album.

Sorry guys it's been so long since I've been on. I've listened to all the recent posts and really find them inspiring and deep.

Here's a song I've always found to resonate for many victims including CSA survivors. Because of what happened to us, we sometimes veer off in the wrong direction and need to right the ship.

"Fastcar" by Tracy Chapman

Hey guys-Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. Here's a live version of a song I posted previously. It's a very moving song and I just came across this performance.

Elton John-"The Last Song" (also known as Father and his Son)
