"Sober" as written by and Butch Walker....
Cna you please remind me how to feel?
This emptiness is real
And I can't bear the thought of it

Can you please remind me how to smile?
I lost track after while
Is happiness so hard to get?

Is it me, or is this over?
As I got sober, I watched you fade away
Is it me, or is this ending?
As I was pretending, I watched you fade away

I didn't know that time could move so slow
When you've got nowhere to go
The silence is so deafening

Wakin' up on the wrong side of your mind
How could I have been so blind?
To see I'm losing everything

Is it me, or is this over?
As I got sober, I watched you fade away
Is it me, or is this ending?
As I was pretending, I watched you fade away

Sooner or later, we gotta stop this elevator
You go your way, and I'll go mine
I'm sure that I'll be fine

Is it me, or is this over?
As I got sober, I watched you fade away
Is it me, or is this ending?
As I was pretending, I watched you fade away

Is it me, or is this over?
As I got sober, I watched you fade away
Is it me, or is this ending?
As I was pretending, I watched you fade away

Sober...As I got sober
As I got sober...

(I watched you fade...) x 4

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a guy who lost his lover because he is an alcoholic and didn't realize it til later. It's a beautiful, sad song.. one of my favorites.

    General CommentI heard somewhere that this song was written about slowly realizing that Marvelous 3 was no longer together.

    General Commentkk, did anyone else notice that this song bares a striking resemblance is melody to Avril Lavigne's "When You're Gone"?
    i noticed this all myself and was wondering if anyone thought the same...
    and its actually quite possible she stole this song, because she went on tour with them so this time she can't possibly say that she has "never heard the song in [her] life"

    General CommentButch wrote When You're Gone with Avril. I think he probably has similar styles in some of his songs.
