"Under the Bridge" as written by Marlon King, R. Mc Nair and Flea/ A. Kiedis/ C. Smith/ J. Frusciante....
Sometimes I feel
Like I don't have a partner
Sometimes I feel
Like my only friend
Is the city I live in
The city of angels
Lonely as I am
Together we cry

I drive on her streets
'Cause she's my companion
I walk through her hills
'Cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds
And she kisses me windy
I never worry
Now that is a lie

I don't ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
I don't ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way (yeah yeah)

It's hard to believe
That there's nobody out there
It's hard to believe
That I'm all alone
At least I have her love
The city she loves me
Lonely as I am
Together we cry

I don't ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
I don't ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way (yeah yeah)
Ooh no (no no yeah yeah)
Love me I say yeah yeah

Under the bridge downtown
Is were I drew some blood
Under the bridge downtown
I could not get enough
Under the bridge downtown
Forgot about my love
Under the bridge downtown
I gave my life away (yeah yeah)
Ooh no (no no yeah yeah)
Here I stay yeah yeah

Here I stay

    Song MeaningBeing a guy who was once wealthy beyond his wildest dreams, not only with money but friends and family until the needle found it's way into my life I know precisley what Anthony is singing about. NO one can actually know until they have been reduced to driving around all night either looking for dope or a place to shoot it. At that point you can't think of anyhting else. Hiding in a bathroom stall or in a park or yes even under a bridge. Squeezing ice cubes from a soft drink to drip water into a bottle cap to cook your dope then going on a vein hunt in the dark. Sticking sticking sticking yourself until FINALLY you register. At that point nothign else matters. Then suddenly after you fix, blood still running down your arm from several missed attempts....your high. Then when your mind can think of something else rather than getting off do you start to hate yourself. You think about all the good you have thrown away in your life. Friends...gone, Family...gone. The respect you had spent a lifetime earnig from others....gone. NO one to call, No where to go. No one cares. Your just another F*&#@ junkie. Until youve lived it. Until youve had that stench in your nostrils. UNtil youve curled up some where with blood crusted fingers and cryed yourself to sleep you can never really know. But you can enjoy the song. Peace
