Baby, can't you see? I'm falling
A guy like you should wear a warning
It's dangerous, I'm fallin'

There's no escape, I can't wait
I need a hit, baby, give me it
You're dangerous, I'm lovin'it
Too high, can't come down
Losing my head,...

    I think this means that she has irrevocably and seriously been swooned under the man's dark spell. She knows he's deadly for her heart, he'll break her, he'll hurt her...yet she still craves him...his pain...his love...his hate...it pains her that she cant deny it...it pains her that she is love drugged to death.

    I think it means that Britney has fallen for a man that is not good for her because she said he should "Wear a warning". This indicates she knows he's dangerous as she even calls him 'the devil' . When she says ' too late to give you up.' she means that she is already to in love to leave him, even when his intentions are NOT the best for her.

    Well I think this song hasn't got much to do with drugs as it has to do with sex... I think the song depicts how a young girl though trying to be strong has fallen for a man totally wrong for her... That guys charm is almost toxic and she has fallen for him and no matter how much she tries she keeps getting addicted to him, inspite of the fact that she knows that the guy is not good for her and is probably gonna hurt her or harm her(like over usage of drugs do). She has already taken a sip from the devil's cup meaning she must have already kissed/had sex with the guy and now she realises that its too late to turn back cuz she is already in it too deep. Though there is this knowledge there that the guy is dangerous.. There is some thrill n adrenaline rush in being with that guy that is making her love it..

    I think that this song is all about consuming legal drugs ("I'm addicted to you, don't you know that you're toxic"). IMO, mostly tobacco ("It's in the air and it's all around") or alcohol ("I took a sip from my devil's cup"). Wonder if coffee and tea also count ("With the taste of your lips, I'm on a ride").

    When this song came out on single in February/March 2004, I was 18 and half, trying different legal substances. Especially, smoking my first fag. Marlboro with orange filter and 2 gold stripes, and feeling my heart beating fast ("Too high, can't come down"), I quit very easily soon after. I'm a non-smoker and a tea drinker.

    Everytime I listen to this song, it always reminds me this episode, it kinda tells me what cigarette smoke did to my body on that day. That's why I think this song refers to smoking - Brit must've been a cigarette smoker.
