Wasted Years
In May 2010, a group of people with a history of drug and alcohol addiction got together with Andy Collins, a Community Development Worker for NHS Doncaster Drug Strategy, to help write lyrics for a song called Wasted Years. The song depicts the desperation and despair of drug use, through to hope and the chance to change. I love this song – DC!
