This guy constantly texts me when he's drunk, at 2-3 in the morning, typically says one of the following:
"I wish I was with you"
"I really think we should be together"
"I really like you"
I always respond, "You're drunk, have a good time, we'll talk in the morning." But the next morning he'll act like everything's normal. While we did confess to liking each other a while back, nothing came out of it (the guy never made a move). At this point I would consider us friends, but there is still definite tension between us. He also recently told our mutual friend that he wants a relationship.
What on earth does all this mean? If the guy genuinely likes me, why wouldn't he follow through the next morning?

Well, he's not following through when he is not drunk because he is really shy and afraid of rejection.
When you're drunk, it lowers your judgment and inhibitions. So in a way, the real you comes out when you are drunk. Your real base feelings, emotions and desires. This is why you want to stay away from anyone who is an angry drunk.
So he has told you he wants a relationship, at least when he's drunk, and he has told your mutual friend. I would believe that this is the truth.
He's just not following through when he's sober because he really likes you so much that it would crush him really bad if you said you weren't interested. He's basically crazy in love with you.
If you like him and want him to ask you out when he's not drunk, just tell him that it would be OK if he called you sometime to make plans to go out on a date. That should give him enough confidence to then follow through and call you to set something up, if he doesn't ask you out right then on the spot immediately after you say that.
