Sober in two ways

The first time I heard the song Sober from Kelly Clarkson’s 2007 album, My December, I was floored and I immediately looked for the chords and lyrics so I can sing and play it with my guitar, Renji.

Here are the words of the song:

And I don’t know
This could break my heart or save me
Nothing’s real
Until you let go completely
So here I go with all my thoughts I’ve been saving
So here I go with all my fears weighing on me

Three months and I’m still sober
Picked all my weeds but kept the flowers

And I don’t know
I could crash and burn but maybe
At the end of this road I might catch a glimpse of me

Three months and I’m still breathing
Been a long road since those hands I left my tears in
But I know it’s never really over, no

Wake up

Three months and I’m still standing here
Three months and I’m getting better yeah
Three months yeah, three months are hard

Three months and I’m still breathing

Three months and I still remember it

Three months I wake up

Three months and I’m still sober
Picked all my weeds but kept the flowers

One afternoon, I was surfing for something good to watch on TV. I saw Pink’s performance from the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. The song was of the same title. Pink performed the song several feet from the ground on a trapeze. My jaw dropped. Immediately I searched for the lyrics of the song.

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 four o’clock in the mornin’
‘Cause I’m the only one you know in the world that won’t be home

Ah, the sun is blindin’
I stayed up again
Oh, I am findin’
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 my protection
But how do I feel this good sober?

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

Ah, the night is callin’
And it whispers to me softly, “Come and play”
But I, I am fallin’
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?

Comin’ down, comin’ down, comin’ down
Spinnin’ ’round, spinnin’ ’round, spinnin’ ’round
I’m lookin’ for myself, sober

Comin’ down, comin’ down, comin’ down
Spinnin’ ’round, spinnin’ ’round, spinnin’ ’round
Lookin’ for myself, sober

When it’s good, then it’s good, it’s so good ’til it goes bad
‘Til you’re trying to find the you that you once had
I have heard myself cry ‘never again’
Broken down in agony, just tryin’ find a friend, oh, oh

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 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?

Once again, I fell in love with a song. Well, I’m in love with two song… Still in love with Within Temptation’s latest single. ^__^
