[Intro]
[Verse 1]
Party girls don't get hurt
Can’t feel anything, when will I learn
I push it down, push it down
I'm the one "for a good time call"
Phone’s blowin' up, ringin' my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love

[Pre-Chorus]
1 2 3, 1 2 3, drink
1 2 3, 1 2 3, drink
1 2 3, 1 2 3, drink
Throw 'em back till I lose count

[Chorus]
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier
From the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night
Feel my tears as they dry, I -
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier
From the chandelier

[Post-Chorus]
But I'm holding on for dear life
Won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light
Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life
Won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light
Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

[Verse 2]
Sun is up, I'm a mess
Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

[Pre-Chorus]
1 2 3, 1 2 3, drink
1 2 3, 1 2 3, drink
1 2 3, 1 2 3, drink
Throw 'em back till I lose count

[Chorus]
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier
From the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night
Feel my tears as they dry, I -
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier
From the chandelier

[Post-Chorus]
But I'm holding on for dear life
Won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light
Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life
Won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light
Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

[Outro]
On for tonight
Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight, on for tonight
Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight, on for tonight



Glossary:

Party girls don't get hurt - the alcohol shield / IDGAF-barrier makes the party girl immune to feeling anything real… or at least until it wears off. Alcohol actually does have a numbing effect on the body, and was often used as an anesthetic in the past because it depresses the central nervous system.
I push it down, push it down - supression of fear through self medication
Throw 'em back till I lose count - it would take about 4 shots within an hour for someone the size of Sia to get drunk enough to actually start forgetting things, but one thing is for certain: She’s going to party very hard tonight. We have no information on whether she – like Nicki Minaj – is able to keep count of her money.
swing from the chandelier - taking the meaning of “life of the party” to a whole new level
Won't look down, won't open my eyes - she may be drinking herself to death but she also “won’t look down”; even if she knows the possible consequences of what she’s doing, she’s determined to ignore them for one night.
Sun is up, I'm a mess - Sia wakes up with a hangover, everything arounds her make her feel uncomfortable, that’s why she needs to get out and run from the place she woke up to forget what happened.
