I Could Die For You Lyrics

Play "I Could Die For You"
on Amazon Music

Something inside the cards
I know is right
Don't want to live
Somebody elses life
This is what I want to be
And this is what I give to you
Because I get it free
She smiles while I do my time

I could die for you
Oh this life I choose...

    This song is about true love for a person, so passionate that you'd risk your own life for them. Anthony Kiedis wrote it for his girlfriend at the time.

    For the guy who is trying to win back the girl he left

    Hope you guys got back together

    This by far has become my all time favorite song from RHCP. I never heard it until after I played a Soul to squeeze for my toddler to sing her to bed. The song was on a play list and I was blown away and has been on my playlist ever since.

    I didn't know about any romantic background to the song and I'm sure it was beautiful the same if I knew, but to me it spoke to me about my love for my daughter.

    "Something inside the cards I know is right"

    Meaning to my life feels right now (holding her)

    "This is what I want to be and this is what I give to you because I get it free"

    Being a father.

    "She smiles while I do my time"

    On occasion she would smile at me while I sang and rocked her.

    "I could die for you"
    How a father feels for his kids

    "Come along and go, along with me, wander with me to, it's all for free"
    Come along with me and see what I see, it's free.

    "Close door and no one has to know"

    How goofy we can be.

    Definitely a perfect father daughter song.

    For me, "She smiles while I do my time" and the rest of this song is about how I feel trying to win back a girl that I left. What I would do to get her back.

    The way I see it, It's a song about a man who loves a girl and he wants to take care of her and be in a relationship with her (All the things that boysfriends and girlfriends do), but what happens?, well, this girl seems to ignores him actions and the man knows that ,so,here become the phrase ''She smiles while I do my time'', it's means that while he is trying to be faithful and doing all the things that I mentioned before, she maybe is happy with another one or might be happy without him.

    For me, it's about a love unsatisfied.

    He obviously loves her.
    But there is this phrase "She smiles while I do my time" that in my opinion means that he is kind of dying because she is not loving him
