The Way You Used to Do
Queens of the Stone Age Lyrics


Hey

When I first met her she was seventeen
Seventeen
Jump like an arsonist to a perfect match
Burned alive

We run 'til no one could find us
Girl, we outrun everyone

But it doesn't matter now
Just come and love me how
Like the way you used to do
Yeah

Is love mental disease or lucky fever dream?
Fine with either
Gave birth to monsters who will terrorize normalcy, yeah
They'll terrorize

If the world exploded behind us
I'd never notice if it done
Let nobody dare confine us
I'll bury anyone who does

But it doesn't matter now
Just come and love me how
Like the way you used to do (ooh)

Now
The way you used to do

My heart's a ding-a-ling, a puppet on a string
C'est la vie
So lay your hands across my beating heart, love

If the world exploded behind us
I'd never notice if it done
Let nobody dare confine us
I'll bury anyone who does

But it doesn't matter now
Just come and love me how
Like the way you used to do

Used to do
The way you used to do
Come and love me now
The way you used to do
The way you used to do

@Elena He drove her away with his years upon years of drink & drug abuse.
I used to really like his music, but these lyrics just sound like the selfish & self-obsessed moanings of an addict who doesn't want to people to leave him but also doesn't want to change. He has ruined a lot of relationships with his addictions.

During his youth (wrapped up on a whirlwind of fame etc) it might have been more forgiveable, but as a father in his 40s he should have taken more responsibility. Even when he has been violent towards others, there has been very little sense of empathy or personal responsibility.

He produced some really good music in the past, but the reality is his life is almost as past its prime as the past stars that he's trying to parody. Elvis screwed up his health & relationships through his addictions & excesses and became wrapped up in a self obsessed little bubble, and look at Homme?
Doing the exact same IRL.

He won't quite abusing alchohol/drugs for bandmates, for his health, for his wife or his children. Its not cool to watch, just sad (and yes, I do believe his creativity & sound has suffered for it- the music is not as good as it used to be and the band has lost a lot of its coolness).

Verse 1:]
When I first met her she was seventeen
Seventeen
Jump like an arsonist to a perfect match
Burned alive

[Pre-Chorus 1:]
We run 'til no one could find us
Girl, we outrun everyone
But it doesn't matter now
Just come and love me how
Like the way you used to do
Yeah

[Verse 2:]
Is love mental disease
Or lucky fever dream?
Fine with either
Gave birth to monsters
Who will terrorize normalcy, yeah
They'll terrorize

[Pre-Chorus 2:]
If the world exploded behind us
I never noticed if it done
Let nobody dare confine us
I'll bury anyone who does

[Chorus:]
But it doesn't matter now
Just come and love me how
Like the way you used to do

[Bridge:]
Now
The way you used to do

[Verse 3:]
My heart, a ding-a-ling
A puppet on a string
C'est la vie
So lay your hands across my beating heart, love

[Pre-Chorus 2:]
If the world exploded behind us
I never noticed if it done
Let nobody dare confine us
I'll bury anyone who does
it doesn't matter now
Just come and love me how
Like the way you used to do

[Outro:]
Used to do
Like the way you used to do
Come and love me now
Like the way you used to do
Like the way you used to do
