  • I got no excuses
    For all of these goodbyes
    Call me when it's over
    'Cause I'm dying inside
    Wake me when the shakes are gone
    And the cold sweats disappear
    Call me when it's over
    And myself has reappeared

    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know why
    I do it every, every, every time
    It's only when I'm lonely (when I'm lonely)
    Sometimes I just wanna cave
    And I don't wanna fight
    I try and I try and I try and I try and I try
    Just hold me, I'm lonely (I'm lonely)

    Momma, I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore
    And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor
    To the ones who never left me
    We've been down this road before
    I'm so sorry (I'm so sorry), I'm not sober anymore

    I'm sorry to my future love
    For the man that left my bed
    For making love the way I saved for you inside my head
    And I'm sorry for the fans I lost
    Who watched me fall again
    I wanna be a role model
    But I'm only human

    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know why
    I do it every, every, every time
    It's only when I'm lonely (when I'm lonely)
    Sometimes I just wanna cave
    And I don't wanna fight
    I try and I try and I try and I try and I try
    Just hold me, I'm lonely (I'm lonely)

    Momma, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore
    And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor
    To the ones who never left me
    We've been down this road before
    I'm so sorry (I'm so sorry), I'm not sober (I'm not sober) anymore
    I'm not sober anymore

    I'm sorry that I'm here again
    I promise I'll get help
    It wasn't my intention
    I'm sorry to myself Writer/s: - Mphazes, Demitria Lovato, Samuel Elliott Roman, Tushar Apte
