The deep, dark voice that is Tanita Tikaram reflects on her collaboration with the legendary Nick Lowe and reveals why her hit song, "Twist In My Sobriety," isn't really about drinking at all (despite what Liza Minnelli may tell you!): http://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/tanita_tikaram/

i don't know aly, twist in my sobriety is one of more obvious songs. ok, i don't meant that entirely but i've always found the lyrics fairly easy to compute. it's not about one specific thing, more a sprawling commentary on the modern world, fitting in to society and feeling completely, scarily detached from love and lovers. i get what you mean about the obscurity but i think, at least for ancient heart, it served her very very well. the awkwardness of the lyrics worked for her. but songs on other albums don't get off so well.
