Too Drunk To Dream Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Sober, life is a prison
Shit faced, it is a blessing
Sober, nobody wants you
Shit faced, they're all undressing

Oh, sober, it's ever darker
Shit faced, the moon is nearer
Sober, you're old and ugly
Shit faced, who needs a mirror?

Oh, sober, you're a cromagnon
Shit faced, you're very clever
Sober, you never should be
Shit faced, now and forever

I gotta get too drunk to dream
'Cause dreaming only makes me blue
I gotta get too drunk to dream
Because I only dream of you

I gotta get too pissed to miss you
Or I'll never get to sleep
I gotta drink wine not to pine for you
And God knows that ain't cheap

I know you think I'm insane
I know it's not appealing
But till I'm feeling no pain
Guess what I'll be feeling?

I gotta get too drunk to dream
'Cause dreaming only makes me blue
I gotta get too drunk to dream
Because I only dream of you

I gotta get too fried to cry
Or I'll be crying all night long
I gotta get too high to sigh
Oh, my God, where did I go wrong?

So why do I get plastered?
And why am I so lonely?
It's you, you heartless bastard
You're my one and only

I gotta get too drunk to dream
'Cause dreaming only makes me blue
I gotta get too drunk to dream
Because I only dream of you

I gotta get too pissed to miss you
Or I'll never get to sleep
I gotta drink wine not to pine for you
And God knows that ain't cheap
And God knows that ain't cheap
