"She Looks to Me" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Looks to me like heaven sent
No lullaby kid, no 5%
Any way you want to cut that cake
She's dyin' from the likes of abandonment

Lost in the valley without my horses
She needs somebody to hold

It looked to me like heaven
Sent this for your roughest night
She looks to me
She looks to me alright

Who's going to take you home
And hold you when things aren't so bright?
She looks to me
She looks to me alright

It's a long walk down those tracks
It's a dirty walk in
It's a dirty walk back
Gonna learn oh way too much
Shootin' dope in the back of a Cadillac Jack

Slow down the road to my back 40
She needs somebody to hold

It looked to me like heaven
Sent this for your roughest night
She looks to me
She looks to me alright

Who's going to take you home
And hold you when things aren't so bright?
She looks to me
She looks to me alright

Down in the south seas
Give me your mouth please
Resuscitation is the way I find these
I give you major
You give me minor
Don't fade away
Like an ocean liner
Now

Lost in the valley without my horses
No-one can tell me what my remorse is

God made this lady that stands before me
She needs somebody to hold

She shows the world up with a smile
And then she throws the fight
She looks to me, she looks to me alright

Down on the bathroom floor
She's searching for another light
She looks to me, she looks to me alright

It looks to me like heaven
Sent this for your roughest night
She looks to me
She looks to me alright

Who's going to take you home
And hold you when things aren't so bright
She looks to me
She looks to me...

    General Comment"The Sun-Online (a UK mag or newspaper?)" said this song was about a girl Anthony dated who had a drug addiction and b/c of that, her life is being destroyed

    General CommentIt's about a girl Anthony met two years ago when he was finishing Scar Tissue, but it probably wasn't Yohanna because he met her a couple of years before that. The girl in the song was destroying herself with drugs and it made her and Anthony's relationship dysfunctional. She was in a bad place and Anthony wanted to save her.

    General CommentOkay I think im 110% wrong but when Anthony says.....

    "Down in the South seas
    Give me your mouth please
    Resuscitation is the way I find me
    I give you major
    You give me minor
    Don't fade away
    Like an ocean liner
    Now"

    "Down on the bathroom floor
    She's searching for another light
    She looks to me she looks to me
    All right"

    It reminded me of in 'Scar Tissue' when Anthony talks about how his friend Kim accidetaly overdosed on heroin and he took her to the bathroom and had top ut her in the shower and I believe he did mouth-to-mouth. He kept saying stuff liek "Don't die Kim!!!" I dont know if the entire song is about her, but who knows. I'm not finished with the book yet so if I have any more clues I'll come back :D

    General CommentThis song particularly hits hard with me. I got addicted to heroin after being on pain killers for a long time. This song is about a girl being on heroin and how a guy still loves her and wants her to get straight. The medafore "lost in the valley without my horses" is like what some of you said. It would be hell to be in death valley without a horse to ride on right. It is hell being out in the cold without any heroin(or horse) you get dope sick. I love this song!

    P.S. I kicked the habit and now I'm clean! God bless Anthony and the peppers for their hard hitting songs!!

    General CommentWell Yohanna Logan had a drug addiction, so it could be about her. She also has Slow Cheetah on this album about her, so it could be right.
