how can you measure the damage?
how do you calculate cost?
how do you analyze the fallout
of the trust and the innocence lost?
how can you predict the future?
the effects and the symptoms of pain?
the hurts and the habits and hangups
that surface again and again?
how can you treat every heartache?
how do you soothe all the fears?
how can you make it all better
when you can't even see through the tears?
maybe the reading will help some,
and surely the talking helps mend,
but the thing that means most in recovery
is the "you're not alone" from a friend.

As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
