Demi Lovato has released a surprise new track which is without doubt her most heartbreaking and personal offering yet.
‘Sober’ is an emotional piano ballad in which Demi appears to reveal that she has broken her sobriety. The track sees the songstress apologising to those who have been a part of her journey. The poignant lyrics showcase Demi at her rawest and most vulnerable and will resonate with many.
Momma I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore
And Daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor
To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before
I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore
Demi also apologises to her fans, singing “I’m sorry for the fans I lost, who watched me fall again, I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human.” The song ends with Demi apologising to herself, and promising that she will get help and rise once again.
I’m sorry that I’m here again, I promise I’ll get help
It wasn’t my intention, I’m sorry to myself.
Take a listen to ‘Sober’ below.
Back in March, Demi celebrated six years of sobriety. It is no secret that Demi has fought many battles over the years, including addiction, mental illness and eating disorders. However, she has always been very open about her struggles, including during her Simply Complicated documentary which aired on YouTube last year.
Since releasing the track, fans have taken to Twitter to share their messages of strength, hope and encouragement with Demi. Here at CelebMix, we admire Demi’s honesty and courage. It takes a hell of a lot of strength to write and then share such a candid track with the world. No matter what, you are so loved and will always have our support.
