Sia explained to Stereo Subversion that even though Some People Have Real Problems was an easy album to write for, it took her longer to write "The Girl You Lost to Cocaine" than any of the other tracks.[1]

Composition Edit

Lyrically, the song talks about Sia walking away from her friend who keeps using her as a crutch.

Lyrics Edit

I've stuck around through thick and through thin
You cannot deny, I've always been in
But I've watched you stand still as a snowman
But I don't see you change, you're always at meltdown

Yeah, I've been your crutch, your smell sight and touch
Yeah, I took you home when you've drunk too much
But I can't survive with you by my side
See I'll never get laid while I'm running your life

No I just don't wanna, so I'm walking away
There is nothing that you can do, I will not stay
No I don't need drama, so I'm walking away
Yeah, I am a girl with a lot on her plate

So just turn me loose, learn to tie your shoes
There's somebody here I'd like to introduce
So look in the mirror, look for the glass
'Cause you're not my problem, you are my last

No I just don't wanna, so I'm walking away
There is nothing that you can do, I will not stay
No I don't need drama, so I'm walking away
Yeah, I am a girl with a lot on her plate

No I just don't wanna, so I'm walking away
There is nothing that you can do, I will not stay
No I don't need drama, so I'm walking away
Yeah, I am a girl with a lot on her plate

No I just don't wanna, so I'm walking away
There is nothing that you can do, I will not stay
No I'm not your mama, so I'm walking away
I'm just the girl that you lost to cocaine
