Does it go from east to west Body free and a body less Come again just to start a fresh Once again to find a home In the moment of the meantime
Dropping in coming through the mesh Checking in just to get it blessed Hard to leave when it's picturesque and Find a form that's free to roam Where you come from Where you going
Where you come from Where you going Do it all then it all again Make it up and you make a friend Paddle on just around the bend and Find a place where you can see All the mamas and the papas
Take a chance on a recommend Hard as hell just to comprehend Disbelief that I do suspend and Easy now to find a breeze Where you come from Where you going
Where you come from Where you going
We all want to tell her Tell her that we love her Venice gets a queen Best I've ever seen We all want to kiss her Tell her that we miss her Venice gets a queen Best I've ever
I know you said you don't believe In God do you still disagree Now that it's time for you to leave G-L-O-R-I-A Is love my friend My friend My friend
Your stylish mess of silver hair A woman of your kind is rare Your uniform returns to air G-L-O-R-I-A Is love my friend My friend My friend
And now it's time for you to go You taught me most of what I know Where would I be without you Glo G-L-O-R-I-A Is love my friend My friend My friend
I see you standing by the sea The waves you made will always be A kiss goodbye before you leave G-L-O-R-I-A Is love my friend My friend My friend

Robert from Aberdeen, United Kingdom@Emlyn Anthony gives John lyrics to sing as backing, so "you saved my life" is coming from Kiedis, but John is singing it.
Brendan from Cleveland , Tngloria inspired anthony to truely become clean!so he wrote her this song!she was a counselor not a girlfriend!read scar tissue!
Harry from Leeds, United Kingdomdrew from Charleston you are wrong he even says in his book that its about gloria scott thats why the lyric is G-L-O-R-I-A
Emlyn from Southampton, United KingdomJust wondering, is John singing "you saved my life" as the harmony vocals?
Drew from Charleston, ScActually it's about Anthony's Girlfrien who he bought a house for in Venice Beach but she died
Callum from Chester, EnglandIt is the chili's best song the way it is stuctured and crafted maybe not the most catchy or famous but just pure musical genius
Corey from Nashua, NhUmm i hope everyone knows anthony lists the meaning in his book "Scar Tissue" i like the live SLane Castle version alot too.
Louise from Durhamsuch a moving song. chillis r best xxx
Danno from Sussex, EnglandThe acousitc and lyrics at the end is so melodic... im glad i learnt it, replicating the Chili Peppers music is a dream. Gloria Scott is reffered to as Venice queen because, just before she passed away they bought her a house on Venice Beach...
I love you flea and want your babies :P
Delux Fender from Zagreb, CroatiaGloria Scott helped Anthony get off the drugs after Hillel failed to recover from his heroin addict.
Marko from Melbourne, Australia"it sounds like two guitars going not one." well there are two guitars in the song, but frusciante still did absolutely awesome such a touching song and i love it when they play live and at the end kiedes always says "goodbye, so long" oh just such a good song
Mistik from Sydney, Australiano.. she was addicted before but got clean and then started councilling other addicts. It was said that Anthony would probably only listen to her and gave him really good advice.. it goes like um. a person's at their best state when the're giving, Before reading Scar tissue .. i actually thought it was about Yohanna Logan and moving to Venice in Europe.. thats what i had pictured in my head. "you tought me most of what i know" thats true because she helped him out spiritually and i think he started just praying due to what she had said. "G.L.O.R.I.A is love my friend" beautiful song and John's finger picking at the begining is real nice, it sounds like two guitars going not one. its awesome!
Sarah from London, CanadaActually, Gloria Scott WAS NOT a herion addict, she was a conciller that helped Anthony Kiedis threw his addiction. They became very good friends during this time. I'm pretty sure she is refured to as "Venice Queen" in this song because Kiedis bought a home for her over looking Venice Beach. Beautiful song!!!
