Demi Lovato – California Sober Lyrics

California Sober Lyrics – Demi Lovato

Cashin’ in my chips for forgiveness
Trading in my shame for perspective
Tired of being known for my sickness
It didn’t work, I’m tryin’ something different, I

Healing got me lookin’ for freedom
Happiness it used to be fleeting
History was always repeating
Not anymore

I’m California sober
It doesn’t have to mean the growin’ part is over
No, it ain’t black or white, it’s all of the colors
That I only just discovered, now
I’m California sober
California Sober

I
Used to live in fear of always slipping
But living for perfection isn’t living, I
I ran a little slower, now I’m tripping, I
A beautiful and magical beginning, I

Healing got me lookin’ for freedom
Happiness, it used to be fleeting
History was always repeating
Not anymore

I’m California sober
It doesn’t have to mean the growin’ part is over
No, it ain’t black or white, it’s all of the colors
That I only just discovered, now
I’m California sober
California Sober

Trading judgment for freedom
Found somethin’ new to believe in
Somethin’ inside of me screamin’
Don’t be so hard on yourself

Look up, somethin’ has shifted
My heavy spirit is lifted
I found myself

I’m California sober
Doesn’t have to mean the growin’ part is over
No, it ain’t black or white, it’s all of the colors
That I only just discovered, now
I’m California sober
California Sober, I

California Sober, I California Sober
