My Life Through P!NK Lyrics ~ Sober


I love P!NK’s music, so many songs I relate to on her Greatest Hits So Far album.

I absolutely love this song.  Last year around Thanksgiving I finally hit the wall on self pity and drinking away my pain.  Far from having a drinking problem, I simply didn’t want to be sober.  I felt better when I was drinking, numb to my pain and protected from it.  But after an ugly encounter with a friend, when I had drank in excess and lost control, I realized the need to back away from hiding from my pain and just face  it all head on, FEEL it and grieve, mourn and then move forward.  It was so much better once I did that.

The song reminds me that I don’t want to go there again.  Drinking is fine, in moderation, and not to numb things.  I enjoy my wine, my beer and sometimes a few shots of good whiskey.  But  it isn’t the way to deal with my problems  or ignore the issues.  The video is rather racy but I like it.  I even interpret the girl/girl action not as sexual, but as a woman looking at herself, and wrestling with herself in order to LOVE herself again.  I’ve been there, it is hard to really look at ourselves sometimes.  But that is my take on it.

Here are the lyrics to P!NK’s song, Sober, and the video.  Enjoy!

~*~ ~*~ ~*~

I don’t wanna be the girl who laughs the loudest
Or the girl who never wants to be alone
I don’t wanna be that call at 4 o’clock in the morning
‘Cos I’m the only one you know in the world that won’t be home

Aahh the sun is blinding
I stayed up again
Oohh, I am finding
That’s not the way I want my story to end

I’m safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain
Inside
You’re like protection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I don’t wanna be the girl who has to fill the silence
The quiet scares me cause it screams the truth
Please don’t tell me that we had that conversation
I won’t remember, save your breath, ‘cos what’s the use?

Aahh, the night is calling?
And it whispers to me softly come and play
But I, I am falling
And If I let myself go I’m the only one to blame

I’m safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain
Inside
You’re like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

I’m coming down, coming down, coming down
Spinning ’round, spinning ’round, spinning ’round
Looking for myself – SOBER

I’m coming down, coming down, coming down
Spinning ’round, spinning ’round, spinning ’round
Looking for myself – SOBER
When it’s good, then it’s good, it’s so good till it goes bad
Till you’re trying to find the you that you once had
I have heard myself cry, never again
Broken down in agony just tryna find a fit

Ooo Oooo

I’m safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain
Inside
You’re like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober

OOooo OOoo

I’m safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party’s over?
No pain
Inside
You’re like perfection
How do I feel this good sober?

Will I ever feel this good sober?
Tell me, No no no no no pain
How do I feel this good sober?

  1. I love this song, too. And am feeling like I could use a dose of sobriety around here…

    I’m just tired all. the.time. And the glass or two of wine with friends (that happens every day now that it’s summer) is not helping matters.

    I think I’ll crank up this song, say no to the sauvignon blanc and get a good night’s sleep…
