1.      It's just another day, it's just another year,

    "One step at a time", they say

 

    "One trip, and you're back that way."

   C

    I don't recognize these eyes, I don't recognize these hands,

D                                                                                          G

    please, believe me when I tell you that this is not who I am.

 

G            D                   C                       G

    If I recover, will you take me back again ?

G                  D                   C 

    I'm just another, trying hard to fit right in.

                G                    D                C                 Em

But my photographs remind me of who I used to be,

    G                D                  Em C         G

if only I could go back when I,   I was me.
