Sober is a song recorded by Selena Gomez for her sophomore solo album, Revival. "Sober" talks about social awkwardness and how a significant other doesn’t know how to love unless alcohol is involved and the recognition that the boundaries in a relationship aren't so great. According to Selena Gomez, the inspiration came after she and one of the song's writers, Chloe Angelides, talked about social awkwardness and how Gomez "would hang out with people and they would drink and they’re so fun, then the next day it would be weird."

Selena also said that it's one of her favorite songs in the album and she wants to release it as a single for the album but there's nothing confirmed about it.

Lyrics

We fell for each other at the wrong time
Only for a moment, but I don't mind
Guess I don't know where to draw the line, the line, the line
And we'll play the same game every night

Up in the clouds
Yeah, you know how to make me want you
When we come down
Oh I know, yeah I know, it's over

You don't know how to love me when you're sober
When the bottle's done you pull me closer
You're saying all the things that you're supposed to
But you don't know how to love me when you're sober

Why is it so different when we wake up?
Same lips, same kiss, but not the same touch
Don't you know that you doing just enough, but not enough
But I know what's next, and I want so much

Up in the clouds
Yeah, you know how to make me want you
When we come down
Oh I know, yeah I know, it's over

You don't know how to love me when you're sober
When the bottle's done you pull me closer
You're saying all the things that you're supposed to
But you don't know how to love me when you're sober

I know I should leave, I know I should, should, should
But your love's too good, your love's too good, good, good
I know I should leave, I know I should, should, should
But your love's too good, your love's too good, good, good
Yeah!

You don't know how to love me when you're sober
When the bottle's done you pull me closer
You're saying all the things that you're supposed to
But you don't know how to love me when you're sober

You've gotta hold on me
Your life's a wasted dream
I'll give you everything
But you don't know how to love me when you're sober
