Jelly Roll – Sober – Official Music Video

The official music video for “Sober” by Jelly Roll

This song and this video represent the essence of what I stand for.. this song is the gateway to what I truly believe is the best album I’ve recorded to date…this begins the next chapter of “Jelly Roll” – get ready – the ⛈ is back. ⛈ ⛈ ⛈

Listen to “Sober”:

I woke up this morning a little hungover 
It hits different since I got older 
Still got this old chip on my shoulder 
The stubborn side of me will never get sober 

Try to numb my pain but the bullshit never works 
I run from shame I’ll do anything to heal the hurt 

I fucked up again 
Hide behind my sins 
I’ve found everything but closure 
Learn to swallow pride 
Behind these Hollow eyes 
I don’t see change getting closer 
I’ll never get sober 

I deal with this pain don’t ask me how 
I just hide behind a mask of smiles 
When I’m down and drunken bound I get as high as I can be 
I don’t like the person that’s inside of me 

Try to numb my pain but the bullshit never works 
I run from shame I’ll do anything to heal the hurt 

I fucked up again 
Hide behind my sins 
I’ve found everything but closure 
Learn to swallow pride 
Behind these Hollow eyes 
I don’t see change getting closer 
I need to get sober 

I woke up this morning a little hungover

    The burning house is a representation of addiction, we feel like we are trapped, and jelly chaining himself down shows that he feels like he can’t escape this. Almost submitting that this is the only way he can tame his demons, I have felt this way for a long time.. I made a music video called stylez major lost in a high, about losing my best friend to an overdose on my birthday, a day after jelly put out save me, and my friend was the one who told me to listen to jelly roll, I been down since. Thank you jelly, you inspired my song lost in a high…

    Loving an addict and watching them destroy themselves and everything around them and our relationship is devastating. Because you love them so much and try so hard to stick by them hoping that their clarity will happen before they ruin themselves and your relationship completely is hard af before you have to finally give in and throw in the towel before you lose yourself! The most painful thing I’ve ever endured. Crushed my soul. I feel for anyone struggling with being and addict, recovering and also those who are there trying to stick by their sides. It is something no one can understand unless it’s been experienced. No one!

      Yeah i had an ex fiance who was an addict. She left for Florida back in 2012 for rehab. I received a Dear John letter a couple months later and she never came back. She hung herself back in 2017. I thank God I’m not the one who found her. After everything i experienced in Combat, that would’ve absolutely done me in. I feel your pain, ma’am. The Marine/ Warrior in me didn’t quit on her, when anyone else would have. God bless you in your trials, and may He bless you with the patience needed to endure.

    • Kelly Richmond says:

      @Heavens Marine My heart breaks for you, I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m glad that you stayed as strong as you could through such a tragedy.

    • Ray Anderson says:

      Lost my wife last November due to addiction. Did everything in my power to help but finally had to walk away with the children to keep them safe. Was granted full custody in April of 2019. You are spot on with your statement, without going through it there is no way to describe what its like watching the love of your life destroy theirs.

    • Heavens Marine says:

      @Kelly Richmond One day at a time, and by the grace of God. I treat life like bootcamp, or a deployment. Somedays i go from chow to chow, other days hour to hour. Very seldom is it day to day. Over there each day that ended with you still breathing was a blessing. I’ve endured like Job has. Nevermind what i endured in combat. Just gotta keep going. No matter what.

    • Heather R says:

      Girl I understand. I feel every bit of what you said. Not many people understand what I go through having a son that’s a addict 💔
