Lonely is to be without other people and sad. If you are without other people but not sad, the word is “alone”.
Ex: I always jog alone in the park. (Here I am alone but not sad).

Deeds: an action – we usually talk about “good deeds” not “bad deeds”.
Ex: Giving your seat to an old person on the subway is a good deed.
“And she kisses me windy”: A poetic phrase that simply means he feels like the city is kissing him when he feels the wind.
A lie: Notice that we use the phrase “a lie” but we say “the truth”. The idea is that there are many lies but only one “truth”.
The final stanza which begins “Under the bridge downtown” is said to refer to a bad experience with drugs.
To draw has many meanings. It can, of course, mean to make pictures. It can also mean to “extract” or “release”. “To draw blood” is to remove blood from your body – usually in a hospital. Here it seems to be an accident involving drugs under a bridge. There are actually many more meanings for “draw” that we will talk about another day.
