Sober

I want to be sober,
But I need a drink.
I don't want to be awake,
But I can't sleep.
I just want to forget 
I want it all out of my head 
All of these memories
They all live but I rather them die instead. 

When will it end? 
Why can't it stop?
I think that I have suffered quite enough. 
Just give me a break 
Let me cover my face
Let me hide
Please let me breathe. 

I don't want to be sober, 
I just want to drink away the pain 
I just want to fall asleep,
So it can all just go away 
I am filled with regret, 
Because I was the one who let you in.
All of these battle scars, 
Are just a reminder of what you did. 

But I'm gonna stay sober, 
because I am bigger than this.
