Sober

  • I wanna walk that line a little crooked
    And live my life a little on the rocks
    Laughing every time I fail
    Not afraid to make a fool of myself
    And keep on dancing when the music stops

    'Cause I love being in love
    It's the best kind of drug
    Drunk on the holy lean on your shoulders
    Sweet like a wine as it gets older
    When I die I don't wanna go sober
    When I die I don't wanna go sober

    You're like drinking from a never ending bottle
    When I think it's gone it's always a little more left
    Lay back with you and close my eyes
    Let the big ol' world just spin on by
    And saying your name with my last breath

    'Cause I love being in love
    It's the best kind of drug
    Drunk on the holy lean on your shoulders
    Sweet like a wine as it gets older
    When I die I don't wanna go sober
    When I die I don't wanna go sober

    I love being in love
    It's the best kind of drug
    Drunk on the holy lean on your shoulders
    Sweet like wine as it gets older
    When I die I don't wanna go sober

    I love being in love
    It's the best kind of drug
    Drunk on the holy lean on your shoulders
    Sweet like a wine as it gets older
    When I die I don't wanna go sober
    When I die I don't wanna go sober
    When I die I don't wanna go sober Writer/s: HILLARY LINDSEY, LIZ ROSE, LORI MCKENNA

  • Camille from Toronto, OhAt some point recently, I was listening to a song by Little Big Town and the thought came to me that I was so thankful to be alive to hear the sound of the incredible blend of their voices. They are heavenly. When you feel your life is completely saturated with all the good things and you feel like you have the resources to tackle the tough stuff when it comes along, you reach a point where you are drunk on that high. Only it's the good kind of drunk. Exquisite. And that's what this song is, too.
