lyrics

The world is over
And all I can do to stay sober
Is write you a note that got caught in my throat as
Alcohol ran down my chin.

Slowly October
As everyone tries to get sober
We read left to right through the carnival lights as
The merry-go-round starts to spin.

Round and round
And I have the strangest feeling
That I might fall down.
Down and down.
So just let me down.
It's over I'm sobering now.

Darker and colder
And disappointed I get sober.
The two of me here wish the two of you there could
Drive 'cause I wanna go home.

Smarter and older
The younger the less we stay sober
From behind the wheel there's still nothing to feel but
The radio says I'm alone.

Round and round
And I have the strangest feeling
That I might fall down.
Down and down.
So just let me down.
It's over I'm sobering now.

Round and round
And I have the strangest feeling
That I might fall down.
Down and down.
So just let me down.
It's over I'm sobering now.
