I Wish You Were Sober

  • (Wish you were so, wish you were so, wish you were sober)

    This party's shit, wish we could dip
    Go anywhere but here
    Don't take a hit, don't kiss my lips
    And please don't drink more beer

    I'ma crawl out the window now
    'Cause I don't like anyone around
    Kinda hope you're following me out
    But this is definitely not my crowd

    Nineteen, but you act twenty-five now
    Knees weak, but you talk pretty fly, wow
    Ripped jeans and a cup that you just downed
    Take me where the music ain't too loud
    Trade drinks, but you don't even know her
    Save me 'till the party is over
    Kiss me in the seat of your Rover
    Real sweet, but I wish you were sober

    (Wish you were so, wish you were so, wish you were sober)
    I wish you were sober
    (Wish you were so, wish you were so, wish you were sober)
    I wish you were sober

    Trip down the road, walking you home
    You kiss me at your door
    Pulling me close, beg me stay over
    But I'm over this roller-coaster

    I'ma crawl out the window now
    Getting good at saying, "gotta bounce"
    Honestly you always let me down
    And I know we're not just hanging out

    Nineteen, but you act twenty-five now
    Knees weak, but you talk pretty fly, wow
    Ripped jeans and a cup that you just downed
    Take me where the music ain't too loud
    Trade drinks, but you don't even know her
    Save me 'till the party is over
    Kiss me in the seat of your Rover
    Real sweet, but I wish you were sober

    (Wish you were so, wish you were so, wish you were sober)
    I wish you were sober
    (Wish you were so, wish you were so, wish you were sober)
    I wish you were sober

    I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish
    I wish you were sober
    I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish
    I wish you were sober

    Nineteen, but you act twenty-five now
    Knees weak, but you talk pretty fly, wow
    Ripped jeans and a cup that you just downed
    Take me where the music ain't too loud
    Trade drinks, but you don't even know her
    Save me 'till the party is over
    Kiss me in the seat of your Rover
    Real sweet, but I wish you were sober
