  • Well you know,
    I was always the first to arrive at the party, ooh
    And the last to leave the scene of the crime
    Well it started with a couple of beers,
    And it went I don't know how many years,
    Like a runaway train headed for the end of the line

    Well I finally got around to admit that I might have a problem
    But I thought it was just too damn big of a mountain to climb
    Well I got down on my knees and said hey
    I just cant go on livin' this way
    Guess I have to learn to live my life one day at a time

    Oh yeah, one day at a time
    Oh yeah, one day at a time

    Oh yeah, one day at a time
    Oh yeah, one day at a time

    Well I finally got around to admit that I was the problem
    When I used to put the blame on everybody's shoulders but mine
    All the friends I used to run with are gone,
    Lord, I hadn't planned on livin' this long
    But I finally learned to live my life one day at a time

    It was something it was too blind to see,
    I got help from something greater than me
    And today I learned to live my life one day at a time Writer/s: JOE WALSH
