      @Lyle Charles Scott: I dunno I got the sense that she was drawing a parallel between the nature of fan/artist and person/person relations the way that they can so often drift from persona to the personal right through into codependance. but yeah that's not so different to what you're saying.

      Revised lyrics incorporating all suggestions and corrections. Absolutely accurate with the exception of one line in {{double curly brackets}}.

      DO IT WITH A ROCKSTAR LYRICS

      Oooah, oooah,
      Oooah, oooah,
      Oooah, oooah,
      Oooah…

      [Now I lay me down to sleep…!]

      Do you wanna dance?
      Do you wanna fight?
      Do you wanna get drunk and stay the night?

      {{Knowing what’s the price of me/leave?}}

      Do you wanna dance?
      Do you wanna fight?
      Do you wanna get drunk and stay the night?
      Do you wanna smoke till our throats are sore?
      Make out and then talk and then make out some more?
      Do you wanna dance?
      Do you wanna fight?
      Do you get drunk and stay the night?
      Do you wanna know all the things I do
      Where I'm all alone and thinking about you?
      Do you wanna?
      Do you wanna?
      Do you wanna?
      Do you wanna?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do it!

      Do you wanna go back home?
      Your animals are all alone
      And there's a chicken waiting on the stove
      And your cousin left his DVD of “Swinging In The 70s”
      And do you wanna go back home?
      Check your messages and charge your phone
      Oh are you, really sure you wanna go?
      When you could do it with a rock star, do it with a rock star?

      Wait, wait, wait!
      I'll be fine in a minute
      Oh, oh oh
      Wait, wait, wait!
      I'll be fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute

      I don't want your body just a part to listen to INXS
      All the practice in the world
      Won't get me good at loneliness-less
      Loneliness-less, loneliness-less-less-less-less

      Do you wanna dance?
      Do you wanna fight?
      Do you wanna get drunk and stay the night?
      Do you want to see all my cavities?
      Talk about the crisis in the Middle East?
      Do you wanna get really terrified?
      Th’icecaps are all melting and we’re gonna die
      Do you wanna cry?
      I can make you cry
      Do you wanna hit me baby one more time?
      Do you wanna?
      Do you wanna?
      Do you wanna?
      Do you wanna?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do you?
      Do it!

      Do you wanna go back home?
      Your animals are all alone
      And there's a chicken waiting on the stove
      And your cousin left his DVD of “Swinging In The 70s”

      And do you wanna go back home?
      Check your messages and charge your phone
      Oh are you, really sure you wanna go?
      When you could do it with a rock star, do it with a rock star?

      Wait, wait, wait!
      I'll be fine in a minute
      Oh, oh oh
      Wait, wait, wait!
      I'll be fine in a minute
      Wait, wait, wait! (Do you wanna go back home?)
      I'll be fine in a minute
      Oh, oh oh
      Wait, wait, wait! (Do you wanna go back home?)
      I'll be fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute
      Fine in a minute
      Fine in a----

      @unclassedmedia: It's heartwrenching when she sings "I don't want your body, just a part to listen to in a sense. All the practice in the world won't get me good at lonelyness-less." It's a song about no matter how hard you work, how popular you are, or how big a star you get you can still be lonely inside. And it's about using sex to fill the need to be understood.

      like the song and amanda's voice as always, but the whole thing together sounds a bit busy, a bit cluttered.

      Amanda says herself this is "HELLA sad".

      @serocell at 3.18 on May 21, 2012 04:27

      am I the only person who thinks this is a sad song?
