"There She Goes (A Little Heartache)" as written by and Peter Doherty....
I do declare I was surprised to see you stay
only to be betrayed by the one you gave all your love and trust to

And tell me how could I let go
Since I caught a glimpse of your immense soul
You were dancing to northern soul
Just one glance, and well you know...

There she goes a little heartache
There she goes a little pain
Make no mistake, she sheds her skin like a snake
On the dirty road to fame, dirty road to fame my lord now,
Oh There she goes a little heartache
There she goes a little pain
Make no mistake she sheds her skin like a snake
You're going to walk the plank again, walk the plank again my lord now

I was to implore that you forget all you saw
When you came through my door and from your bag
You pulled out more skag than I'd ever seen
No! how could I let go?
Since I caught a glimpse of your white plimsoles
Twisting and turning to northern soul
Just once glance, ah well you know,
Everybody knows

There she goes a little heartache
The she goes a little pain
Make no mistake she sheds her skin like a snake
On the dirty road to fame, dirty road to fame my lord now
There she goes a little heartache
There she goes a little pain
Make no mistake she sheds her skin like a snake
You're going to walk the plank again, walk the plank again
There she goes a little, there she, there she, there she goes

    General CommentWell, my bet is, seeing as Mr. Doherty sees the La's as an influence, it shouldn't have escaped his notice that their most famous song is called "There She Goes", and that this one owes much to the Lovecats by the Cure. What with Delivery being a Kinks ripoff; Shotter's Nation is miles below anything the Libertines ever issued. Still, if this song is seen more as a tribute than a theft, it's probably one of the better ones on the album. Definitely a tribute to Kate Moss though.

    General CommentThis song is from before Kate I believe. It seems that he has met a young girl who is a bit of a social climber. When he sends her off so he can continue his downward spiral of excess and self loathing, she returns...bearing the fruit (skag) that he cannot refuse, despite himself. He wants her to move on without him, forget his celebrity, forget the life she is fascinated with, but he cannot refuse her for she has found the one thing...that he cannot turn away.

    I had a girl like this once. I couldnt see her for anything, despite her facination with me. Just one taste, and she was hooked harder than i've ever seen. I turned her away for good, but when she came back, i hated her more than anything...because she found the only thing that could let me tolerate her.

    smashing tune.
