The party's just begun
I promise this drink is my last one
I know I fucked up again
'Cause I lost my only friend
God forgive my sins
Don't leave me, I
Oh I'll leave myself until I die
My buddy Kyle really liked this one when he first heard it, so it must have more merit than I give it. If any comparison is to be made between this and any other previous Gaga song, I'd say it's in the same vein as You and I from Born This Way. The ballad is well-written and nicely performed, but I just can't wrap myself around the chorus:
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 on searching for an answer cause I need you more than dope
Maybe I'm being a bit too critical here, but "Bell Bottom Blue?" "Dope?" Does anybody use that word anymore? I gave it three stars on first listen and I am sticking with it. Not one of my favorites...
