"Sober" as written by Gary Scott Burr, Jessie Farrell and Victoria Lynn Shaw....
I don't like the taste of wine
And whiskey burns my throat
I’m the one on Friday night,
who drives everybody home
So I can’t blame a bottle,
for the fool that I have been
For letting you break my heart,
again and again and again

I was drunk on you, I was drunk on you
I lost myself like you were nine days through
It’s hard to admit it took a long time to quit
cause I thought I could change you somehow
I was drunk on you, but I’m sober now

I look in the mirror,
and I still can’t believe,
the nights I should have kicked you out,
I begged you not to leave
I thought that I could not survive,
without you in my life
so I became someone else,
afraid to lose your love

I was drunk on you, I was drunk on you
I lost myself like you were nine days through
It’s hard to admit it took a long time to quit
cause I thought I could change you somehow
I was drunk on you, but I’m sober now

Now that I keep my distance,
I know that I’ll be fine
Now that my hands aren’t shaking,
I’m taking it one day at a time

I was drunk on you, I was drunk on you
I lost myself like you were nine days through
It’s hard to admit it took a long time to quit
cause I thought I could change you somehow
I was drunk on you, but I’m sober now

I was drunk on you, but I’m sober now
