Kickstart My Heart Lyrics

When i get high
I get high on speed
Top fuel funny car's
A drug for me
My heart, my heart
Kickstart my heart
Always got the cops
Coming after me
Custom built bike doing 103
My heart, my heart
Kickstart my heart

Ooh, are...

    If we listen to the feel of the song, it gives a clue to the meaning: it is pure happy vibrant feelings. You can hear the motorbike or car kickstart and rev up as if to express the fire it up energy, and it is a great adrenalin type feeling. When your emotional nature heart is 'kickstarted' there is a sense of when romance and love is at the stage of making one feel super alive, or of being high on life, or of the type of energy The Crue seemed to fire up with on stage, as they seemed to naturally get a high from playing music as a band to an appreciative audience. It is for me a super happy song, full of life and energy.

    The song is about Nikki Sixx dying from a heroin overdose (which, quite frankly seemed to happen a lot) and then being revived. If you listen to the lyrics, they actually talk about dying. When the song slows down, Vince Neil sings about how they've kicked ass over the years. This is what he means by that.

    Nikki overdoses with his dealers and slash among others then in the ambulance he is given two shots of adrenalin to the heart after being pronounced dead for over 2 minutes. It is possible that the driver of the ambulance was a motley crue fan after having declared he is going to die in my fucking ambulance

    Nikki one day too much heroin. He was injected with a medicine that reversed what heroin did to him. The song is based on when he died for a couple of seconds and came back to life.

    Ok.. before you start saying what you think the song is about.. Try watching the video, interviews with nikki, and the dirt, also the herion diarys ( when it comes out).. nikki has said many times the song is ment to be a song to get you pumped up, adrinaline, and he's also said in the interveiw on motley crues greatest video hits dvd that he thought the song wasnt going to be that good

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This song is written about Nikki Sixx who has died and been brought back too life like four times, the ambulance bought him back too life and he got the song from that.
