Sober

from by Kelly English

lyrics

We were trekking far
And we were treading water
Gave a lot of thought
And came up with why bother?

Wasn’t it you with the world on your shoulders?
Wasn’t it you making nights much colder?
Swearing to me you’ll be better when youre older
Now you’ve grown up and you can’t get sober
Now you’ve grown up and you can’t get sober

You spend nights away
While I am at home finding
An alternate way to getting my way
That doesn’t involve screaming and fighting

But babe it’s me with the world on my shoulders
And it’s still you making nights much colder
Swearing to me you’ll be better when you’re older
But now you’ve grown up and you cant get sober
Now you’ve grown up and you can’t get sober

You didn’t hold me down
You'll never hold me down
You didn’t hold me down

Youll never hold me down
You’ll never hold me down
You’ll never hold me down

Swearing to me you’ll be better when you’re older
But you’ll never hold me down
Say you’ve grown up but you can’t get sober
And you’ll never hold me down

You’ll never hold me down
You'll never hold me down
You'll never hold me down
You'll never hold me down

No, no
