"Dope" as written by Paul Edward Blair, Stefani J. Germanotta, Nick Monson and Dino Zisis....
Cork's off, it's on
The party's just begun
I promise
This drink is my last one
I know I fucked up again
Because I lost my only friend
God forgive my sins
Don't leave me, I
Oh I will hate myself until I die

My heart would break without you
Might not awake without you
Been hurting low, from living high for so long
I'm sorry, and I love you
Sing with me, "Bell Bottom Blue"
I'll keep on searching for an answer cause I need you more than dope

I need you more than dope
Need you more than dope
Need you more than dope
I need you more than dope

Toast one last puff
And two last regrets
Three spirits and
Twelve lonely steps
Up heaven's stairway to gold
Mine myself like coal
A mountain of a soul
Each day, I cry
Oh, I feel so low from living high

My heart would break without you
Might not awake without you
Been hurting low, from living high for so long
I'm sorry, and I love you
Sing with me, "Bell Bottom Blue"
I'll keep searching for an answer cause I need you more than dope

I need you more than dope
I need you more than dope
I need you more than dope
I need you more than dope

I need you more
Need you more
I need you more than dope

    My Opinion"I know I f***ed up again
    'Cause I lost my only friend
    God forgive my sins'"

    These few lines remind me of Lina Morgana, Lady Gaga's music partner in 2007 and then she commited suicide in 2008 before Lady Gaga actually became Lady Gaga. She commited suicide in New York from jumping 10 stories to her death. Yana Morgana said Gaga has stole her style and is keeping Lina's soul and wants it to be set free.

    Song MeaningThis song is about addiction and romance.

    At the beginning of the song it is apparent some unfortunate events had taken place between the singer and their romantic partner.

    Lady Gaga bears great remorse for her leaving and begins to sing why. At the time she had a love for both her self destructive behavior and her lover but ultimately hurt her partner because she couldn't let her addiction go.

    She sings many times "I need you more than dope" to express the brevity of how much she really needs her partner, that even though she used her "dope" in excess to the point of tearing their relationship apart.

    One should also be aware of the lyric "I'm sorry and I love you" and how bare it is sung. In many songs love and remorse are worded sweetly to appeal to the listener but in Lady Gaga's case, it is sung so plainly that it could never possibly be misunderstood how much she cares and how much she loves her partner.

    The "Dope" in the song could be a literally drug like heroin but it could also be any other vice like self destructive behavior, revenge, gambling, etc.

    To my knowledge this song is not about any specific event from Lady Gaga's life or any addiction she may or may not have.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about Gaga falling in love with her best friend. But it's one sided. Just being around him makes her high. She eventually decided that she couldn't take it anymore and told her best friend the truth. However, the truth destroyed their friendship. From that point, her life is not the same. She has been feeling low because he wasn't around to stimulate her like he used to.

    General CommentGaga will do anything to steal anything from anyone, not that she cared her friend died, or cares about keeping her soul alive. She's got the face of a murderer even! It wouldn't surprise me if she was in the conspiracy! ;)
