In my house there's a circle, where the life comes in
From the stars to my home, down through the stone
I could have been so alone without my precious box
Have I a family, I guess not? I've never seen a lot of beauty in my life
Well in your house there are servants, and the lights all dim
Such a beautiful home, your agent's on the phone
They never leave you alone the party never stops
You say that's fantasy, I say "So what, I need a little beauty"

So let me in
You know you've kind of got under my skin
You know we never see a lot of the action 'round here
My dear, you may want to strip again
And you look so fine in your Gucci suit
And you're makin' more money than your daddy
Could have imagined
But people can go out of fashion, honey, yeah, any time

Take that picture, stop actin' so dumb
Don't you know that the moment will come
I will find someone like you
But somethin' with extra, I'm sorry baby
I don't know why?
Said, "I don't know why that is?"

The systematic breakdown of my community
You know I hate my job, I try to save but God
There's just never enough
Switch on, the pressure stops
You know the one for me, she's on fox
And she's a little beauty

Give me your life, give me your life, I want it
Because lately, it's so freezing out here
(This side of the glass, life keeps kickin' my ass)
In so many ways but you make it good
Made me the kind of happy that my baby never could
(This side of the glass)

I know that you would now baby
Take that picture, stop acting so dumb
Don't you know that the moment will come
I will find someone like you
Somethin' with extra, I'm so sorry baby
I don't know why?
Said, "I don't know why that is?"

Precious keeps me company on
Keeps me from bein' alone

Because no-one comes in the morning
No-one comes in the evenin' time
I'd sit and wait for the phone to ring
I could be waiting my whole damn life
So sick of the same old faces
In this street, where nobody talks to me
And the funny side of the situation is
I don't care, I'll always be there

When you come down from the sky
And make yourself at home
In my house baby
'Cause these days it's the money the money
The money, honey, or your life
I said,"Don't you know you can't have both"
I said,"Don't you know you can't have both"
I said,"Don't you know you can't have both"

Stop acting so dumb
The moment will come
I will find someone like you
Somethin' with extra, sorry baby
(Always happens baby to me)
I don't know why?
(Something)
Said, "I don't know why that is?"

You may want to strip again
You may want to let me in
You may want to sacrifice
More than you think is fair or right
You may want to think again
You may want to watch your friends
You may want to change your mind
You may wish you could turn back time

You may want to strip again
You may want to let me in
You may want to sacrifice
More than you think is fair or right
You may want to think again
You may want to watch your friends
You may want to change your mind
You may wish you could turn back time

You may want to strip again
You may want to let me in
You may want to sacrifice
More than you think is fair or right
You may want to think again
You may want to watch your friends
You may want to change your mind
You may wish you could turn back time
