lyrics

It's never easy to live the life you want
living in Bali just becomes another haunt
it's your hometown, but not your country
you hustle everyday, avoid the monkeys
either got the time, or have the money

And every time I have a proper drink
I wanna go skinny dipping with everyone
And every time I have a proper think
I wanna be deep in love with anyone
And even if I found the missing link
by the time I realised it'd be far after dawn
so we keep on keeping on

Sharp as a razor but dull like a knife
never a boring day, not on your life
always the best, always the worst
drowning in water, dying of thirst
you're so damn blessed, you outta be cursed

And every time I have a proper drink
I wanna go skinny dipping with everyone
And every time I have a proper think
I wanna be deep in love with anyone
And even if I found the missing link
by the time I realised it'd be far after dawn
so we keep on keeping on

Hotel California,
never check out but you always pay
life's in technicolor
dark sunnies on, even when it rains
tattoos and scars won't break these chains
don't want to burn out, but you can't get on that plane

And every time I have a proper drink
I wanna go skinny dipping with everyone
And every time I have a proper think
I wanna be deep in love with anyone
And even if I found the missing link
by the time I realised it'd be far- you'd be too far gone
so we keep on keeping on
