I'm gone and I'm flying
I'm worried, you're ranting, you're angry
You want E3, say you want E3
We're insane, here on this big airplane
You got drunk so we left the country

And you made me angry
In this new country
You don't see things the way I see
Cov'ring all your needs
Keep on smiling about your 'C00l thing'
One thought 'bout the reasons just confuse me

And I speak to you like a railgun to the face
Rack another kill courtesy of me in Quake
You act like a l33t guy all the time
Still you're a good friend of mine

I think

I want no one else
To be with me to
Keep my own sanity
Largo, Largo
I want no one else
And I do not want to say
Goodbye

Our cards were through, we were screwed
I was wondering how I would get home
But I found a good friend down here
Somehow down here
Smiling at the girl who'd have to wait
Throwing coffee pots wasn't leading us to any date

I can't stop, I won't go home, I must try
See an anime store, I spend 'til I'm dry
But then I came in
I took the job that I was given
Was afraid of you
I'm still afraid of you

I said
How'd I get myself into
A place where all of these girls are so cute
Why am I scared of what's new in
This place where
I know…

I want no one else
To be with me to
Keep my own sanity
'Miko, Er'ka
I want no one else
And I do not want to say
Goodbye

He believes in zombies and the undead
Your gaze gives a feeling a scary feeling
I didn't follow what you said
And somebody's love can make you cry
When I'm with you I feel like I will die
But I think you're all right, all right

And when he brought you in
I knew you were crashing
The turtle, it tore through the city
He triggered your systems to attack
But now your realness doesn't lack

These days you are telling me to behave
I cannot stare at her all day
Those older girls should all be in my taste
But I confess those others just have such a cute face
Wai…

And you love me
But I am too old
Still it's all that I want to do: teach you drawing now
Feel myself forgetting the time
I'm scared I will not survive
No, no
And I won't run for my life
You've got your hopes now locked down for tonight
And nothing is all right, all right

And I want no one else
To be with me this night
Yuki,
I want no one else
I don't want you to say
Goodbye...
Goodbye...
Goodbye...

Goodbye!

The sky is blue it was light
I can't believe neither of us ran in fright
And I wish I could stay back there
Somehow back there
In that place were I can smile...

I want nowhere else...

Semi Charmed Life
By Third Eye Blind

I'm packed and I'm holding I'm smiling
She living she golden and 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
Good-bye

The sky 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

She 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
Side 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 hurry underground,
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
Good-bye
Good-bye
Good-bye
Good-bye

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

I want something else
