05. By The Way
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


Standing in line
To see the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there, waiting for
Dani the girl
Is singing songs to me
Beneath the marquee, overload
Steak knife card shark
Con job boot cut

Skin that flick
She's such a little DJ
Get there quick
By street but not the freeway
Turn that trick
To make a little leeway
Beat that nic
But not the way that we play

Dog town blood bath
Rib cage soft tail

Standing in line
To see the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there, waiting for

Black jack dope dick
Pawn shop quick pick
Kiss that dyke
I know you want to hold one
Not on strike
But I'm about to bowl one
Bite that mic
I know you never stole one
Girls that like
A story, so I told one
Song bird, main line
Cash back, hard top

Standing in line to
See the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for
Dani the girl is
Singing songs to me
Beneath the marquee
Oversold
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for

Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah

Standing in line to
See the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for
Dani the girl
Is singing songs to me
Beneath the marquee
Of her soul
By the way I tried to say
I know you
From before

Standing in line to
See the show tonight
And there's a light on
Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for

Love johns backing vocals in track 2

zoomom

Wow,I really enjoy this album,way more now,,LISTENING TO EVERYDAY.THANX

Armin Basha

Is "Body Of Water" dedicated to Layne Staley???

Armin Basha

Yeah, the lyrics and the style..Very "Chainish", backing vocals and the main riff...just a guess

Andrew Peterson

Where'd you get that idea? From lyrics? I think it is possible but not very likely. Layne died in april 2002 and RHCP finished recording in may. They usually fully write their songs before recording them so it means that all BTW songs were written in 2001 or earlier (although AK said that he sometimes wrote lyrics mere days before recording them) This song appeared on a 2001 bootleg with very early rough lyrics. This is similar situation with "dream of a samurai" having lyrics that supposedly allude to the death of Scott Weiland

Brandi Celio

This is so different of a cover

Adam Galvez

Waterfall ..is rough but if perfected would have been a hit flea n Jhon .together again

Tyler Wickline

Each night I ask the stars above.

Mungo Finalfi

The chord progression during 13:24 - 13:34 reminds me of an album track from the Frusciante era...I can't figure out which one though. Any help?

Andrew Peterson

i could die for you
