"Under The Bridge" Lyrics

All Saints

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 city's
Lonely as I am
Together we cry we cry 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)

I drive on his streets
'Coz he's my companion
I walk through his hills
'Coz he knows who I am
He see's my good deeds
And he kisses me windy
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 we're a crap band)
Take me to the place I love
(Take me all the way)

(One time two time three time four time)
It's hard to believe
There's nobody out there
It's hard to believe
That I'm all alone
At least I have his love
The city he 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)
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)
All the way
All the way
All the way
All the way
All the way
All the way

About

"Under the Bridge" was the third single released from the All Saints debut album, All Saints. It became their second number-one single on the UK Singles Chart. A total of 424,799 singles have been sold in the United Kingdom. The cover of the Chili Peppers song was released as a double A-side with "Lady Marmalade", also a cover, by LaBelle. In Europe, a single of only "Lady Marmalade" was also released. The proceeds from the single went to breast cancer charities.

"Under the Bridge" was slightly altered because it contained personal lyrics by Anthony Kiedis, and the All Saints covered it because they liked the overall sound and feeling of the recording. The All Saints version contains samples of the original recording, the most important one being the distinctive guitar playing in the beginning. The original Japanese edition of the album version features a different, more R&B/pop version of the song. Kiedis said of All Saints' version: "It was kind of funny, they looked so pretty and clean, it looked like they didn't know what they were singing about". The Chili Peppers' original is said to deal lyrically with Kiedis's drug addiction, and the final section which contains the line "Under the bridge downtown / is where I drew some blood" was omitted in the All Saints version. The guitar on "Under the Bridge" was played by Richard Hawley.

Both videos were shot as a set and cost £500,000 to make. The videos took four months of production before release. The girls chose to perform their own stunts in the video, and at one point Natalie Appleton was knocked over by an explosion, although she remained unhurt.

The videos are in a futuristic big city. In the "Lady Marmalade" video, there is a party which causes several floors of a tall building to cave in. The "Under the Bridge" video appears to be set immediately after, as there is already a hole in the floor of the room which appears to be a bottomless pit. In reality, there was a hole which was indeed one floor deep. The 3D dimensional effect was computer generated and made by the team who also made the film Batman & Robin. Both videos were shown together as "The Bridge" at cinemas before the showing of the Quentin Tarantino film Jackie Brown.
