Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do

I'm packed and I'm holding, I'm smiling
She's living, she's golden, she lives for me
Says she lives for me
Ovation, her own motivation

She comes 'round and she goes down on me
And I make her smile like a drug for you
Do ever what you want to do, coming over you
Keep on smiling what we go through
One stop to the rhythm that divides you

And I speak to you like the chorus to the verse
Chop another line like a coda with a curse
Come on like a freak show, takes the stage
We give them the games we play, she said

I want something else
To get me through this
Semi-charmed kind of life baby, baby

I want something else
I'm not listening when you say
Goodbye

Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do

The sky was gold, it was rose
I was taking sips of it through my nose
And I wish it could get back there, some place back there
Smiling in the pictures you would take
Doing crystal meth will lift you up until you break

It won't stop, I won't come down
I keep stock with a tick-tock rhythm, a bump for the drop
And then I bumped up, I took the hit that I was given
Then I bumped again, then I bumped again

Said how do I get back there
To the place where I fell asleep inside you?
How do I get myself back to the place
Where you said?

I want something else
To get me through this
Semi-charmed kind of life baby, baby

I want something else
I'm not listening when you say
Goodbye

I believe in the sand beneath my toes
The beach gives a feeling, an earthy feeling
I believe in the faith that grows
And the four right chords can make me cry
When I'm with you I feel like I could die
And that would be all right, all right

And when the plane came in
She said she was crashing
The velvet it rips in the city
We tripped on the urge to feel alive

But now I'm struggling to survive
Those days you were wearing that velvet dress
You're the priestess I must confess
Those little red panties, they pass the test

Slide up around the belly face
Down on the mattress one
And you hold me and we are broken
Still it's all that I want to do, just a little now

Feel myself head made of the ground
I'm scared, I'm not coming down, no, no
And I won't run for my life
She's got her jaws now locked down in a smile
But nothing is all right, all right

And I want something else
To get me through this life baby

I want something else
Not listening when you say
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo

The sky was gold, it was rose
I was taking sips of it through my nose
And I wish it could get back there, some place back there
In the place we used to start

Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
(I want something else)
Do-do-do, do-do-do-doo
