Semi-Charmed Life
Third Eye Blind Lyrics


Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo

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 you smile, like a drug for you
Do ever what you wanna 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 kinda life, baby, baby
I want something else, I'm not listening when you say good-bye

Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo

The sky was gold, it was rose
I was taking sips of it through my nose
And I wish I could get back there, someplace 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
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 kinda 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 that four right chords can make me cry
When I'm with you I feel like I could die
And that would be alright, alright

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
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 are broken
Still it's all that I wanna do, just a little now
Feel myself, heading off 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 alright, alright

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

Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo

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

Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
I want something else

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're broken
Still it's all that I wanna do, just a little now
Feel myself, heading off 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 alright, alright

And I want something else to get me through this life
Baby, I want something else

Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye, good-bye

Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo...

I was taking sips of it through my nose (Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo...)
And I wish I could get back there (Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo...)
Someplace back there, in the place we used to start (Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo...)

Here are the missing lyrics from the full version.

"And you hold me, and we are broken
Still it's all that I wanna do, just a little now
Feel myself, heading off 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 alright, alright"

This is the most upbeat song about drug addiction, ever.

McRocket

Well, 'ever' is a stretch.
I guarantee you and I have not heard EVERY song, ever written about drug addiction.
But you are right in that it is an incredibly upbeat, drug addiction song.

yuukidoobie

Didn't know until they mentioned it on a vh1 show lol

Tenkaiechi Budokai

Mr Bojangles

Jay

@Phlub He didn't. I replied to dreamsnake1 who said "The best song about drugs: *Smells like teen spirit*"

Phlub

@Jay he said upbeat.

The pure genius of this song still isn't fully appreciated: Every breakdown is different, different tones, instrumentation, dynamics, even what sounds like repetitive choruses have subtle nuances missed by most....none of this was accidental either. TEB's ability to play the same lick so many different ways is what really gives this song life. It's always familiar while always surprising.

Lasya Adiraj

ur trippin if you think im reading all that....jk i read it...great points

Teoti Nathaniel

@z s Came to say that Keving Cadogan was the genius here... glad someone beat me to it. :)

Charlie

Couldn't of put it better myself, the song is always so refreshing.
