RECOVERY
Fontella Bass


#37 in 1966


Ooh baby, recovery

I'm falling again happiness is in my heart, yeah

Though you misuse me, and false accuse me

I've gotten to understand.

You treated me like a heart that was used

But I've gotten over you

My heart is free it's my recovery

I'm feeling better.


I feel good inside the heartache and pain have gone, yeah

You want my love, but next time you come along, yeah

You treated me like a heart that was used

But I've gotten over you

My heart is free it's my recovery

I'm feeling better. (Recovery)

So much better.


I've got peace of mind this heartache I've left behind, yeah

(Left behind, yeah)

And now I'm laughing and you'll never catch me crying, yeah

You treated me like a heart that was used

But I've gotten over you

My heart is free it's my recovery

I'm feeling better. (Recovery)

So much better.


Recovery, my heart is free

Feeling better (feeling better)

So much better (so much better)

Feeling better (feeling better)

I feel, I feel...

Mmm mmm hmm (Mmm mmm hmm)

Mmm mmm hmm (Mmm mmm hmm)

Hmm hmm (Hmm hmm)

Mmm hmm hmm hmm (Mmm hmm hmm hmm)
