"There She Goes" as written by and Edmonds/williams/hugo....
There she goes
There she goes again
Racing through' my brain
And I just can't contain
This feelin' that remains

There she blows
There she blows again
Pulsing through' my vein

And I just can't contain
This feelin' that remains

There she goes, there she goes again
She calls my name, pulls my train
No-one else could heal my pain

And I just can't contain
This feelin' that remains

There she goes
There she goes again
Chasing down my lane

And I just can't contain
This feelin' that remains

    General Commentit's a song with a double meaning, therefore there is no "real meaning," because there are TWO. one being drugs, one being a girl, it doesn't matter which you choose, neither one is wrong because that's how it was written. you just take it how you will. personally, i always thought it was about a girl, so no, it's not "obviously about heroin." he says nothing about needles or being high, he just uses words that could also go with a love song, so it's NOT obvious, and i think that's how it's supposed to be.

    General CommentA lot of people might say this is about a girl, or about drugs or about whatever. But I just like to think of it as one of the songs that was big when I was a kid. Ace track.

    General CommentThis song is about heroin addiction, "there she blows... pulsing through my veins... calls my name... no one else can heal my pain... chasing down my lane" its a wee bit obvious if you look at it! Lee Mavers may have said its not, but thats not what he said at first, and seeing as hes lived for the last decade off the royalties he gets for the song i wouldnt be surprised if he tries to clean it up a bit in retrospect! Absolutely brilliant song, even if it was written about heroin, as with all art its open to personal interpretation, if you want to read it as one of the most beautiful love songs ever written then thats what you do

    General CommentThe "pulsing through my vein" line is the only one I can see remotely related to drug use. Personally I prefer the more innocent take on the song, but that's just me. The love song take is far more universal. Everybody has somebody that makes their heart race. Often times it might be a friend who you can't admit those feelings to.

    General CommentI like to see the much more innocent meaning of seeing a girl he likes, not about a serious heroin addiction. Call me naive or ignorant, but it fits the innocent and simple feeling of the song better.

    General CommentI like this song, cause you don't have to think too much to understand the meaning (regardless of whether you choose to believe it is about drugs, or a girl, which it's perfectly plausible that it could mean either). I think it's an uplifting song that is great to sing along to.

    General CommentThis song is not about drugs, as stated by Lee Mavers and The La's themseleves. You disgrace this songs true meaning, which is awesome.

    General CommentI don't think this is about drugs I think this about a guy who loved a girl but eventually he stopped loving or having a crush on her. But he keeps on seeing her or thinking about her and the part of him thats stills loves her is getting bigger.

    there she goes
    there she goes again
    racing thru' my brain

    and i just can't contain
    this feelin' that remains

    I dpn't think this is about drugs because if he was taking the drugs he would be blowing her not him blowing him (that sounded very wrong).

    General CommentI always thought there was a dual meaning to this song (drugs, Love blah blah) But if you read the book "in search of the la's- a secret liverpool" the link to drugs, is completely denied in an interview.
