                          I'm packed and I'm holding 
                     I'm smiling, she's living, she's golden 
                              and she lives for me 
                            She says she lives for me 
                                     Ovation 
                          She's got 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 
                 And 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 
                              I want something else 
                         I'm not listening when you say 
                                     Good-bye

                        The sky it was gold, it was rose 
                     I was taking sips of it through my nose 
                        And I wish I could get back there 
                              Some place back there 
                     Smiling in the pictures you would take 
                               Doing crystal myth 
                        Will lift you up until you break 
                                  It won't stop 
                         I won't come down, I keep stock 
                 With a tick-tock rhythm and a bump for the drop 
                              And then I bumped up 
                           I took the hit I was given 
                               Then I bumped again 
                             And then I bumped again

                           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 
                              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

                             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

                            The 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 
                                 Now you hold me 
                                And we're broken 
                         Still its all that I want to do

                   Feel myself with a head made of the ground 
                       I'm scared but I'm not coming down 
                           And I won't run for my life 
                   She's got her jaws just locked now in smile 
                            but nothing is all right 
                                    All right

                              I want something else 
                             To get me through this 
                            Semi charmed kind of life 
                              I want something else 
                         I'm not listening when you say 
                                     good-bye
