Dope - Lady Gaga




Meaning: You hate yourself... but you can't stop. It's destroying you, but you can't stop. Dope. In a rare moment of simple candor without the gaudy show, Lady Gaga dedicates this song to her own struggles, and to all the friends she's had who let themselves be destroyed by drugs and alcohol...

Music Video: Still waiting...

The Meaning of Dope: It's a simple song with a simple message. Don't start. Because drugs destroy your ability to stop. They destroy you, period, but you keep going back to them because they help you forget the mess that you've become. That's a great insight... but it could apply to a lot more than just drugs and alcohol. Simply leaving it at "don't do drugs, and don't drink" is a very partial solution to the problems facing young people today.

Ask Yourself: Don't do drugs... Fine. But what do you fill your life with, once you've finally gotten rid of the garbage?


LYRICS:

It's off, it's on
The party's just begun
I promise this
This drink is my last one
I know that I f-cked 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 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
Need you more than dope
Need you more than dope
I need you more than dope

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