Under the Bridge
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


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
Well, I never worry, now that is a lie

I don't ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
I don't ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
Yeah, 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 wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
I don't ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, no, no-no, yeah, yeah
Love me, I say, yeah yeah
One time

(Under the bridge downtown)
Is where 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
Oh, no, no-no-no, yeah, yeah
Oh, no, I said, oh, yeah, yeah
Where I stay

Seems to me a bit like might be talking about when was at a low point in his life or his state of consciousness, and was maybe offered a deal, he took a blood oath which was what lead to the ''fame and fortune'' he gained

Some will know what I'm talking about to some degree, most will not

I suppose just one of the hints to this is in the name to the album.. ''sex magik'' .. I wonder if you ask all of the people who like this song or album ''what is sex magik?'' most would probably not even be aware of any of the topics or concepts behind any of it.. It's a topic that I'm not even aware much of or inner-stand much of, or can express much of but I'm aware of a couple of aspects.. I don't look into things or ''research'' for the realisation and inner-standing that I do have though

The thing is that lyrics can always be perceived in various ways... So many lyrics have references to generally hidden or unknown concepts, or even things going on in the world that most people are unaware of, but most people don't see it..

Could take many songs for example.. let's use gnarls barkleys crazy for one.. As usual everyone loves it, and think they inner-stand what the lyrics are expressing about, and that they relate to it, but the truth is very little amount of people will actually inner-stand what the lyrics are actually expressing about compared to how many people like the song and think they inner-stand it..

This is really a sad song..

Heroine addiction, he was shooting up under the bridge downtown
" is where I drew some blood"

Where he gave his life away.. The gospel choir repeating "away"

Always gives me the chills, as a former drug addict myself, I almost get teary eyed with the way this song ends.

Absolute masterpiece, they truly caught lightning in a bottle on that day, something you might only get to do once in an entire lifetime.

When you walk through the Hills, in them Shoes.

It feels different, creating a underlying bridge of meditation through the storm.

No matter what is going on.

Pineapple takes too long to get out of my mouth.

A Prayer is so fast, nothing is Faster.

Think it's funny people think they are above addiction like it can't happen to them never no one day your hit by a car and docs over prescribe you and next thing you know ten years are gone you've done shit you never thought youd be the one doing and the addict you've looked down on found recovery and they are the one dragging you out of the pits of hell
