Stone Cold Sober

Album: Just as I Am (2015)
  • I guess I said some thing's last night
    That's usually in the morning light
    I regret it
    Like double shots and cigarettes
    Said things like
    "I love you baby" and
    "I know I sound crazy, but let's just work this out ya and maybe settle down"

    I woke up hungover
    But still had to call you
    'Cause I just realized girl
    That maybe it was all true, yeah

    I let the whiskey talk
    And baby it said too much
    I got the feeling now
    It didn't say enough
    'Cause I'm waking up alone
    Missing that midnight kiss
    I can't promise you forever
    All I know is I still want you to come over
    And I'm stone cold sober

    Well I can lie about 99 percent of the time
    When I've had too much to drink
    Yeah I do stupid things

    But this time is different
    And baby it feels so right
    I hope you were listening
    To every word I said last night

    I let the whiskey talk
    And baby it said too much
    I got the feeling now
    It didn't say enough
    'Cause I'm waking up alone
    Missing that midnight kiss
    I can't promise you forever
    All I know is I still want you to come over
    And I'm stone cold sober

    Yeah I got blood shot eyes (Got blood shot eyes)
    But it's all crystal clear (All crystal clear)
    No I don't need Jim Beam
    To know I need you here

    Yeah I let the whiskey talk
    And baby it said too much
    And I got the feeling now
    It didn't say enough
    'Cause I'm waking up alone
    Missing that midnight kiss
    I can't promise you forever
    All I know is I still want you to come over
    Baby all I know is I still need you to come over
    And I'm stone cold sober

    Yeah baby I'm stone cold sober
