One Too Many - Keith Urban ft. P!nk

The Experience: Cold sober... That cold feeling when you come to grips with just how far from happiness you are...

The Vibe: Regret. Hope.

The Topic: Humility. Pride.

The Tension: Pride and denial (everybody falls when their head's a little high and I spent all my money drinking on my own, yeah) VS. Refreshing honesty with yourself and those you love (come take me home yeah, I've had one too many).



Music video: Keith Urban is lost at high sea. Alone. On the sofa... where his behavior has sent him. He's not worthy of companionship. But it's that crisis that brings him to his senses: cold sober.

The Meaning of One Too Many: Too many loves die in silence. One Too Many celebrates the cold sober moment when you realize how far gone your love is... before it's too late. That's why the song is ultimately an ode to hope - take me home.

Ask yourself: Do you settle for less than authentic intimacy?

Album:  THE SPEED OF NOW Part 1 (2020)

LYRICS:

I don't remember much about last night
Woke up on a couch, sunrise
Saw the living room through these blood shot eyes of my mine, cold sober
You didn't like that I come home late
‪4AM,‪ but it's a Friday, babe ‬
And I've been working hard
Can't you give me some space 'stead-a shoutin' out, "Oh my God"

Whoa, oh yeah
Whoa, oh yeah
I go out with some new friends
But it just makes me miss you more
More

I spent all my money drinking on my own, yeah
In this bar, just sat here staring at my phone
And I keep second guessing, where did I go wrong?
I know I'm proud, but I've had one too many, come take me home

So now, I'm the one that's crying
I didn't wanna call 'cause I didn't wanna fight
I swear that I was trying, yeah
But everybody falls when their head's a little high
And I never meant to get so out my mind
With you playing cool just pretending it's fine
Oh, we've been 'round, 'round, 'round this
Too many times before

Whoa, oh yeah
Whoa, oh yeah
I go out with some new friends
But it just makes me miss you more
More

I spent all my money drinking on my own, yeah
In this bar, just sat here staring at my phone
And I keep second guessing, where did I go wrong?
I know I'm proud, but I've had one too many, come take me home

I don't know how lucky, how lucky I am, I am, I am, no
I guess sometimes I should give more of a d-mn, a d-mn, a d-mn about you
I don't know how lucky, how lucky I am, I am, I am, no
I know we're both stubborn, push each other's buttons
I'd rather do it with you, but...

I spent all my money drinking on my own, yeah
In this bar, just sat here staring at my phone
I spent all my money drinking on my own, yeah
In this bar, just sat here staring at my phone, yeah
And I keep second guessing, where did I go wrong?
I know I'm proud, but I've had one too many, come take me home

Come take me home
Yeah, I've had one too many
