Day 45: Sober

Welcome to the forty-fifth day of our hundred song challenge.  We’re almost half-way there and there are still a couple of great songs that I would want to share with y’all. XD

Moving away from the souther-bell accent that I suddenly found stuck in my head (courtesy of the new book I’m reading),  let’s talk about music.

Today’s song is another one by Pink and is entitled “Sober“.

I always wondered why people want to drink their worries away with alcohol.  The thing doesn’t even taste that good (not that I have tasted it before but, judging from the smell…bleh…).  Anyways, when I listened to this song, I can see the story of a person who found herself in a lot of problems–a crap-load of them–and she decided to go and just waste herself away.  I don’t know, maybe this is how she thought she could solve her problems.

But no problem, big or small, can be solved by killing your liver–which is, let’s face it, what you end up doing whenever you chug down a bottle, two, three, four, whatever of beer.  In my opinion, drinking alcoholic beverages in the hopes of coming into terms with your problem is a coward’s way.  It’s just running away and no matter how much beer you drink down, your problems won’t go away and you might just end up dead…of course, if that’s your ultimate goal then…you might need to get yourself medicated because that is seriously not good.

Anyways, in the end the girl found that she would rather be sober.  But, the thing is, she doesn’t know how to get that no-one-can-hurt-me and I’m-on-the-top-of-world (Oh no…LSS…ugh, not this song…I’m on the…top of the world lookin’…down on creation and the only explanation I can find…is the love that I found ever since you’ve been around…you’re love puts me on the top of the world~! Oh Geez-Luise…this is not good *grabs iPod and starts listening to Adam Lambert with max volume*)

*Ahem*

As I was saying…she’s trying to find a way to get that good feeling when she’s sober.  I guess she doesn’t end up knowing how to do that (just yet).  Anyways, I doubt I’ll be able to impart some Zen Master knowledge on you guys on how to get that good feeling (since I don’t really know what that feels like, after all, I haven’t gotten drunk ever and I would definitely never will) all I can say is that drinking is dangerous for your health.

Okay…so I sound like some infomercial on TV.  But, it’s true.  The government just can’t put a stop to selling beer and alcohol since they would not get any money that way and money makes the world (and their lives) go ’round (same is true with cigarette smoking).

Moving on a more serious note, I still (for the life of me) can’t understand what the whole deal is with drinking.  And, I swear, if someone tells me that I’ve got to try it first to understand, well…here’s what I say to you: No thanks!

Oh, yeah…this song is also part of the Songs For Japan song compilation (now available on iTunes).

Anyways, below are the lyrics to the song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

I don’t wanna be the girl who laughs the loudest
Or the girl who never wants to be alone
I don’t wanna be that call at four o’clock in the mornin’
‘Cause I’m the only one you know in the world that won’t be home

Ah, the sun is blindin’
I stayed up again
Oh, I am findin’
That’s not the way I want my story to end

I’m safe up high, nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain inside, you’re my protection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I don’t wanna be the girl that has to fill the silence
The quiet scares me ’cause it screams the truth
Please don’t tell me that we had that conversation
‘Cause I won’t remember, save your breath
‘Cause what’s the use?

Ah, the night is callin’
And it whispers to me softly, “Come and play”
But I, I am fallin’
And if I let myself go I’m the only one to blame

I’m safe up high, nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain inside, you’re like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

Comin’ down, comin’ down, comin’ down
Spinnin’ ’round, spinnin’ ’round, spinnin’ ’round
I’m lookin’ for myself, sober

Comin’ down, comin’ down, comin’ down
Spinnin’ ’round, spinnin’ ’round, spinnin’ ’round
Lookin’ for myself, sober

When it’s good, then it’s good, it’s so good ’til it goes bad
‘Til you’re trying to find the you that you once had
I have heard myself cry ‘never again’
Broken down in agony, just tryin’ find a friend, oh, oh

I’m safe up high, nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain inside, you’re like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I’m safe up high, nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain inside, you’re like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
