"Girl on LSD" as written by and Tom Petty....
I was in love with a girl on marijuana
She said, "If I'm not stoned I don't wanna"
But she got so paranoid
Her place I would avoid
I was in love with a girl on marijuana

I was in love with a girl on cocaine
She had everything going but her brain
We?d talk endlessly for hours
But by morning it'd go sour
I was in love with a girl on cocaine

[Chorus]
Through ecstasy, crystal meth and glue
I found no drug compares to you
With all these pills
And all this weed
I don't know just what I need

I was in love with a girl on LSD
She'd see things I'd never see
She broadened her perspective
Then I got more selective
I was in love with a girl on LSD

[Chorus]

I was in love with a girl who drank beer
Till bad breath and all she disappeared
She was blowing up real bad
But when she left I was still sad
I was in love with a girl who drank beer

I was in love with a girl on China white
We were married for a year one night
Her memory still lingers
?cause I burned all my fingers
I was in love with a girl on China white

I was in love with a girl who drank coffee
There were times when I couldn't keep her off me
That caffeine got her goin'
But her ugly side was showin'
I was in love with a girl who drank coffee

I was in love with a girl who was a dealer
I was afraid somebody?d come steal her
We never used to fight
But the phone rang day and night
I was in love with a girl who was a dealer

Sure as hell
She got popped by the big guys

    General Commenti think this is pretty much kinda about him realizing hes done with drugs. Hes saying how he loves these girls, but then they get high or drunk or whatever and theyre not the same. He looses interest and leaves.

    He says through extasy glue and crystal meth hes found no drug compares to this girl, so he gets higher with love than he does on drugs. this ultimately shows him that life would be better without the drugs.

    General CommentI think that this song is all about him being in love with one women and through all the drugs and different types of women he's been with, she's still the only one for him. I love this song. It's so funny and odd.

    And recycle - I definitly think thats the message here

    General Commentyea, its about all the girls he was in love with. He got kicked out of his house because of his obsession with music and women.

    General Commenti think this song is a metaphor for all the drugs tom tried and the end part about being sick of being a dealer sick of the calls and paranoia from the cops. the part about coffee "her ugly side was showen" i think he means the crash u get from coffee and how agitated u can get. this is all just a well educated guess though
