About Sober

"Sober" is a song recorded by New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde, from her second studio album Melodrama (2017). Lorde co-wrote and co-produced the song with Jack Antonoff, with production assistance from Malay and vocal production from Kuk Harrell. It was released on 9 June 2017, by Republic as the album's second promotional single. "Sober" is the first of a two-track song, which is completed by "Sober II (Melodrama)". It is an electronic R&B song that features a tiger's roar, trumpets, brass and tenor and baritone saxophones in its production. The lyrics detail the desire to tell someone how you feel about them while wondering how it will be once the liquor wears down. The song received mostly positive reviews from music critics who praised its unexpected direction and departure from the maximalist production of her previous singles "Green Light" and "Perfect Places". It was also compared to the minimalist production on the singer's debut album Pure Heroine (2013) and the works of the xx. The song had minor chart placements in Australia and Canada, placing at 61 and 84, respectively. Lorde performed "Sober", with six other songs, as part of a re-imagined Vevo series at the Electric Lady Studios where she recorded most of her album. It was also part of the set list of her Melodrama World Tour (2017–18).

Night, midnight
Lose my mind
Night, midnight
Lose my mind
Night, midnight
Lose my mind
Night, midnight

Oh god, I'm clean out of air in my lungs
It's all gone
Played it so nonchalant
It's time we danced with the truth
Move along with the truth
Ooh (hey)
We're sleeping through all the days
I'm acting like I don't see
Every ribbon you used to tie yourself to me

But my hips have missed your hips
So let's get to know the kicks
Will you sway with me?
Go astray with me? (aha)

King and Queen of the weekend
Ain't a pill that could touch our rush
But what will we do when we're sober?
Ah, when you dream with the fever
Bet you wish you could touch our rush
But what will we do when we're sober?
These are the games of the weekend
We pretend that we just don't care
But we care (but what will we do when we're sober?)
Ah, when you dream with the fever
Bet you wish you could touch our rush
But what will we do when we're sober?

Oh God, I'm closing my teeth
Around this liquor-wet lime
Night, lose my mind
I know you're feeling it too
Can we keep up with the ruse?
Ah ah (hey)
B-bodies all through my house
I know this story by heart
Jack and Jill got fucked up and possessive
When they get dark

But my hips have missed your hips
So let's get to know the kicks
Will you sway with me?
Go astray with me? (aha)

King and Queen of the weekend
Ain't a pill that could touch our rush
But what will we do when we're sober?
Ah, when you dream with the fever
Bet you wish you could touch our rush
But what will we do when we're sober?
These are the games of the weekend
We pretend that we just don't care
But we care (but what will we do when we're sober?)
Ah, when you dream with the fever
Bet you wish you could touch our rush
But what will we do when we're sober?

Midnight, we're fading
'Til daylight, we're jaded
We know that it's over
In the morning, you'll be dancing with all the heartache
And the treason, the fantasies of leaving
But we know that, when it's over
In the morning, you'll be dancing with us
Oh, dancing with us
Oh, (but what will we do when we're sober?) you'll be dancing with us 
(Can you feel it, can you, can you feel it)
Dancing with us, us 
But what will we do when we're sober? Us

When you get to my high (midnight, lose my mind)
When you get to my (midnight, lose my mind)
