"When I'm Sober"

Seems to me that you just gave up

The door that always stayed open

locked shut

Not all your heart was with me

You gave it away while I still loved you

Oh, so easily

Did you ever even care for me at all?

To you it mighta' been easier if you'd just gone and let me fall

Because now I'm sittin' here at home

Drunk with tears but yeah, I'm all alone

Maybe the bottle will help me to forget

Or make me believe that there's still hope yet

Oh, but it doesn't matter that I think of you

As long as I'm not sober

I hope that in you're heart

That deep down its wishin' and a' missin'

Falling apart

I'll forever carry that day with me

The one when you walked away

Oh, so easily

If you're thinking of me baby? Or wishing he/she was me maybe?

I pray your thoughts of me are hurting you like crazy…

Because now I'm rememberin' you

All the pain and all the hell that you put me through

So much for loving, you threw it in my face

I thought I gave you everything, guess that wasn't the case

But I tried which is more than you could say

Yeah, that's more than you could say

Because you gave your heart away

You never loved me at all

It must have been so easy for you to watch me fall

And Oh--, I'm drinkin'

Yeah I'm drinkin'

Almost damn well over you

Because now I'm sittin' here at home

Drunk with tears but yeah, I'm all alone--

Maybe the bottle will help me forget

Or lie, make me believe there's still hope yet

Oh o' oh, but it doesn't matter that I think of you

No, it doesn't matter at all

That I think of you

As long as I'm not sober yeah e' yeah

As long as I'm not sober

Oh, but soon I'll be sober

And this will all be over

Caus' it's you that I'll be over…

When I'm Sober

(Fade out)

End
