[Verse 1]
Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem
Lying to herself cause her liquor's top shelf

It's alarming honestly how charming she can be
Fooling everyone, telling how she's having fun

She says, "You don't want to be like me"

[Pre-Chorus]
She says, "You don't wanna see all the things I've seen
I'm dying, I'm dying"

She says, "You don't want to get this way
Famous, and dumb at an early age
Lying, I'm lying"


[Hook]
The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes

She laughs like god, her mind's like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she's still shining
Like lightning
White lightning


[Verse 2]
Carmen, Carmen, staying up till morning
Only seventeen, but she walks the streets so mean
It's alarming truly how disarming you can be
Eating soft ice cream, Coney Island queen

[Pre-Chorus 2]
She says, "you don't want to be like me
Looking for fun, getting high for free"
I'm dying, I'm dying

She says, "You don't want to get this way
Street walking at night, and a star by day"

It's tiring, tiring

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Baby's all dressed up, with nowhere to go
That's the little story of the girl you know

Relying on the kindness of strangers
Tying cherry knots, smiling, doing party favours
Put your red dress on, put your lipstick on
Sing your song, song, now, the camera's on
And you're alive again


[Interlude]
Mon amour, je sais que tu m'aimes aussi
Vous avez besoin de moi, vous avez besoin de moi dans votre vie
Vous ne pouvez pas vivre sans moi
Et je mourrais sans toi
Je tuerais pour toi


[Hook]

[Outro]
Like lightning, light, white lightning
Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem
Lying to herself cause her liquor's top shelf
