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 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"
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 till it goes bad
Till 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

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?
How do I feel this good sober?

    I think this song is about girl who drinks alot and the alchohol makes her happy(you know what I mean?). She thinks she won't be happy sober.
    I think it's about party girl who is afraid of being sober.
    This is the meaning in my opinion. I understand it and I find myself in the lyrics. Everything in this so is so true and I totally understand it
    I'm not sure I'm right but.

    I'm not sure what this song is supposed to mean. Not that it's a bad song cos it's a good song! But I'm really not sure what it's supposed to mean. I'll try to explain what it means to me.
    It's like this girl is trying to find her personality and shes not sure what it is so she stays away from the 'in crowd' and feels lonely. So like the setting is at a slumber party or something and she doesn't want to share her personality because she's afraid that somebody will make fun of her. So she stays up in the attic or the clouds and watches the other girls and watches them.
    I don know. That was a stupid meaning. Oh, well, what's not stupid. Not me, of course. I'm stupid!

    That poem was raw Julez, and I am feeling your spirit through everyword. God, Rah, Jah, Allah bless you.
    Pink you are freaking incredible for this work. I wonder how many people have really digested the bread you just buttered. I don't know if I received all the nutrients I was supposed to absorb. Regardless.
    So the meaning in my opinion:
    Goodness is devoured too quickly and its meaning is not properly understood or interpreted. The good is me but it is not simply greatness, or popularity. Nor is it joy or some happy-go-lucky trait. It is work to prove to myself first that I am good. Maybe better said that I am enough and don't have to be anyone else's picture of me, yet I am satisfied when I am praised. I get dizzy chasing other ppls perceptions of me and my so-called goodness, even if people think I am that way. But b/c I am good and can't find anyone else who sees me through the me I put on (and the goodness' true end), then I am floating off false highs that I am good b/c of others perceptions of me (I am not the girl filling the silence or aka the annoying one, I am not the girl afraid to be alone even though I am). If I don't keep up with the false high then I could fall or fail and that would be my fault and overwhelm me b/c others wouldn't be able to deal with the fallen me. So I am good or sober cuz those false highs are keeping me afloat (what ever they may be.)
    Hopefully that makes sense.
