The Only Time I'm Sober Is When Your Gone
(Jordan, Lucafo)

When I first met you, I didn't understand
What a naggin' bitchin' woman can do to a man
Well it seems that the girl I married ain't quite the same
I thought I knew you better when I gave you my name

Chorus: Now, the only time I'm sober's when you're gone
And the bottle is the only thing that keeps me hangin' on
The man on the radio keeps singin' sad sad songs
Like "The Only Time I'm Sober's When You're Gone"

I have no need to travel, anywhere's too far
And they know me by my first name at all the local bars
I heard that a failin' love can drive a man to drink
I would have left you if I hadn't been too high to think


Well, guess I'd better go now, it's gettin' pretty late
But I'll be back tomorrow night, so please save my place
And I'll tell you all about the tales of pain and misery
And the heartaches that you caused by bein' too damn blind to see
