Under the Bridge 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
That I never worry
Now that is a lie

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

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

I don't ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
But take me to the place I love
Take me all the way (yeah, 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 ooh (yeah yeah)
Oh oh (I said yeah yeah)
(Oh oh) here I stay

Thoughts & Meanings

I very nearly lost a dear friend of mine to heroin addiction years ago, and every time I hear this song I think of him. This is a very literal description of Kiedis's own battle with heroin & his memory of "drawing" blood with a needle under a bridge in the City Of Angels. Catchy, yes. But also a very visceral song.

Right on point!

A song composed for (and dedicated to) the so called City of angels, describing her as a companion, as a kisser, as a friend, as a lover, as "her", the one you'll cling on when the night falls. A song that'll be remembered this one.
