Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-dooDoo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-dooDoo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-dooDoo-doo-dooI'm packed and I'm holding, I'm smilingShe's living, she's golden, she lives for meSays she lives for meOvation, her own motivationShe comes 'round and she goes down on meAnd I make her smile like a drug for youDo ever what you want to do, coming over youKeep on smiling what we go throughOne stop to the rhythm that divides youAnd I speak to you like the chorus to the verseChop another line like a coda with a curseCome on like a freak show, takes the stageWe give them the games we play, she sayI want something elseTo get me through thisSemi-charmed kind of life, baby, babyI want something elseI'm not listening when you sayGoodbye
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-dooDoo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-dooDoo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-dooDoo-doo-dooThe sky was gold, it was roseI was taking sips up into my noseAnd I wish I could get back there, some place back thereSmiling in the pictures you would takeDoing crystal meth will lift you up until you breakIt won't stop, I won't come down, I keep stockWith a tick-tock rhythm, a bump for the dropAnd then I bumped up, I took the hit that I was givenThen I bumped again, then I bumped again, I saidHow do I get back thereTo the place where I fell asleep inside you?How do I get myself back toThe place where you saidI want something elseTo get me through thisSemi-charmed kind of life, baby, babyI want something elseI'm not listening when you sayGoodbye
I believe in the sand beneath my toesThe beach gives a feeling, an earthy feelingI believe in the faith that growsAnd the four right chords can make me cryWhen I'm with you I feel like I could dieAnd that would be alright, alrightAnd when the plane came in, she said she was crashingThe velvet it rips in the cityWe tripped on the urge to feel aliveBut now I'm struggling to surviveThose days you were wearing that velvet dressYou're the priestess, I must confessThose little red panties, they pass the testSo slide up 'round the belly face down on the mattress oneAnd you hold meAnd we are brokenStill it's all that I want to do, just a little nowFeel myself hovering off the groundI'm scared, I'm not coming downNo, noAnd I won't run for my lifeShe's got her jaws now locked down in a smileBut nothing is alright, alrightAnd I want something elseTo get me through this life, babyI want something elseNot listening when you sayGoodbye, goodbyeGoodbye, goodbye
