I'm packed and I'm holding 
I'm smiling, she living, she 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 
It's 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 
I 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 
Good-bye 
 
The sky it was gold, it was rose 
I was taking tips of it to my nose 
And I wish I 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 
And then I bumped again 
I 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 
Good-bye 
 
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 
Slides up around the belly 
Face down on the mattress 
One 
And you hold me 
And we're broken 
Still it's all that I want to do, just a little now 
 
Feel myself head made of the ground 
I was 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 
 
I want something else 
To get me through this... 
Life.......baby 
I want something else 
I'm not listening when you say 
Good-bye x4 
 
The sky it was gold, it was rose 
I was takin' tips of it to my nose 
And I wish I could get there 
someplace, back there 
In the place we use to start our lives 
I want something else
