Sober

Album: California (2016)
  • I know I messed up and it might be over
    But let me call you when I'm sober
    I'm a dandelion, you're a four-leaf clover
    But let me call you when I'm sober

    Naa, na na na na na naaaa
    Na na na na na na
    Naa, na na na na na naaaa
    Na na na na na na

    I woke up in the pouring rain
    West Side Humboldt 7am
    Sleeping by a dumpster to keep me dry
    With the radio on and a new black eye

    Because I bet you couldn't knock me out
    And I guess you, you really got me now
    Black sedan ran a red light
    Just a drunken bike messenger on Tuesday night

    I know I messed up and it might be over
    But let me call you when I'm sober
    I'm a dandelion, you're a four-leaf clover
    But let me call you when I'm sober

    Naa, na na na na na naaaa
    Na na na na na na (when I'm sober)
    Naa, na na na na na naaaa
    Na na na na na na (when I'm sober)

    She undressed and we stumbled downstairs
    Fell onto the table as the neighbors just stared
    We laughed out loud and smashed their lights
    Digging with our hands in the dirt outside

    And she dragged me to the edge of town
    And she slapped me then she pulled me down
    I can do bad and you can do better
    Spending all night getting lost together

    I know I messed up and it might be over
    But let me call you when I'm sober
    I'm a dandelion, you're a four-leaf clover
    But let me call you when I'm sober

    Sober
    Sober

    I know I messed up and it might be over
    But let me call you when I'm sober
    I'm a dandelion, you're a four-leaf clover
    But let me call you when I'm sober

    Naa, na na na na na naaaa
    Na na na na na na (when I'm sober)
    Naa, na na na na na naaaa
    Na na na na na na (when I'm sober)

    Naa, na na na na na naaaa
    Na na na na na na (when I'm sober)
    Naa, na na na na na naaaa
    Na na na na na na (when I'm sober) Writer/s: Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, Matthew Skiba, Patrick Stump, John William Feldmann
