Red Hot Chili Peppers – Dosed lyrics

I got dosed by you and,
Closer than most to you and,
What am I supposed to do,
Take it away,
I never had it anyway,
Take it away,
And everything will be okay...

In you a star is born and,
You cut a perfect form and,
Someone forever warm,
Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on,
Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on...

Way upon the mountain where she died,
All I ever wanted was your life,
Deep inside the canyon I can't hide,
All I ever wanted was your life...

Show love with no remorse and,
Climb on to your seahorse and,
This ride is right on course,
This is the way,
I wanted it to be with you,
This is the way,
I knew that it would be with you,
Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on,
Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on...

Way upon the mountain where she died,
All I ever wanted was your life,
Deep inside the canyon I can't hide,
All I ever wanted was your life...

I got dosed by you and,
Closer than most to you and,
What am I supposed to do,
Take it away,
I never had it anyway,
Take it away,
And everything will be okay...

Way upon the mountain where she died,
All I ever wanted was your life,
Deep inside the canyon I can't hide,
All I ever wanted was your life...

    I believe that this song means he was 'dosed' by her cause he was addicted to her, yet 'take it away, I never had it anyway' means she had found someone else. 'way upon the mountain where she died' is like a metaphor for she has left him and went with another. 'all I ever wanted was your life' means all he wanted was her love. 'deep inside the canyon I can't hide' means she's always there with the other guy. 'show love with no remorse and' means who ever you decide to love, never regret that you have loved them. 'climb on to your seahorse and, this ride is right on course' meaning he just wants her to be happy with whoever and whatever she chooses to do. 'this is the way, I wanted it to be with you, this is the way, I knew that it would be with you' meaning he wanted her but knew he couldn't so he knew what he waqs up against. Anyway that's what I think of the song yet I have read and heard many other interpretations and personally I think everyone was right as songs are meant to be interpretated differently.
