"Girl With Golden Eyes" as written by and James/ashba Michael....
She speaks to me in Persian
Tells me that she loves me
The girl with golden eyes
And though I hardly know her
I let her in my veins
And trust her with my life

I wish I had never kissed her
'Cause I just can't resist her
The girl with golden eyes
Every time she whispers
'Take me in your arms
The way you did last night.'

Everything will be okay
Everything will be alright
If I can get away from her
And save my worthless life.

I wake up every morning
Jonesing for her love
The girl with golden eyes
I won't have to wait long
'Til she buries me with roses
'Cause she's always by my side

Everything will be okay
Everything will be alright
If I can get away from her
And save my worthless life.

Day one. Dope free. I went to the clinic today and got the first dose of methadone.
I'm out of dope so I threw away all my rigs.
Day two. I can't believe it's been two days without junk.
F***ing smack, it just ruins peoples' lives.
At first it seems so sweet, then you wake up next to a monster.
Day three. I haven't had anything for three days now.
This withdrawal is killing me. It's like shock therapy to my guts.
Day four. Last visit to the clinic. My whole body feels like it's cracking into pieces.
Fragile doesn't even come close to describing how I feel.
Day five, I'm sick as a dog, but this handful of painkillers
and a lotta whiskey's gonna get me through.
Day six, when I'm left to my own devices I go fucking insane.
I'll never use heroin again.
Day seven, I can't believe I'm clean!
Day eight, everyone says I look better
Day nine, the parasites are panicking
Day ten, they seem amazed that I'm alive!

Everything will be okay
Everything will be alright
If I can get away from her
And save my worthless life.
Everything will be okay
Everything will be alright
If I can get away from her
And save my worthless life.

    General CommentShe speaks to me in Persian - Persian is a type of heroin
    Tells me that she loves me
    The girl with golden eyes-heroin is normally gold colored
    And though I hardly know her
    I let her in my veins
    And trust her with my life-He recognizes that he didn't know what he was doing with the heroin and the drug took over his life.

    I wish I had never kissed her
    'Cause I just can't resist her
    The girl with golden eyes
    Every time she whispers
    'Take me in your arms-Illuding to the common injection area.
    The way you did last night.'-In the morning you feel dope sick and a crazy urge for the drug. he feels like its calling his name so to speak.

    Everything will be okay
    Everything will be alright
    If I can get away from her
    And save my worthless life.-when you realize how dependant you are it is depressing. you have no sense of self value.

    I wake up every morning-another referance to being dope sick
    Jonesing for her love
    The girl with golden eyes
    I won't have to wait long-He knows its going to kill him.
    'Til she buries me with roses
    'Cause she's always by my side-Its always around, even when he tries to avoid it.

    Everything will be okay
    Everything will be alright
    If I can get away from her
    And save my worthless life.

    this is in his book (if you havent read it, its a great book) he talks talks about the first time he got clean. (I say the first time because I just read this part and I'm only half way through the book so there has to be more)

    Everything will be okay
    Everything will be alright
    If I can get away from her
    And save my worthless life.
    Everything will be okay
    Everything will be alright
    If I can get away from her
    And save my worthless life.

    General CommentHmm I think this is about heroin. Nikki Sixx's addiction. All the references to "her, she and girl" is the drug.

    "And though I hardly know her
    I let her in my veins
    And trust her with my life"
    Saying that he's never tried this drug before, yet he'll try it and he hopes that he won't O/D ??? I'm not quite sure.

    "I wish I had never kissed her
    'Cause I just can't resist her"
    He wishes that he hadn't done the drug in the first place because now he's addicted.

    "The girl with golden eyes
    Every time she whispers
    'Take me in your arms
    The way you did last night.'"
    That's his addiction talking. That part is basically about his craving for the drug.

    "Everything will be okay
    Everything will be alright
    If I can get away from her
    And save my worthless life."
    He's saying that if he can stop using the drug, his life will be better.

    "I won't have to wait long
    'Til she buries me with roses
    'Cause she's always by my side"
    I think that's about what can ultimately happen to him if he continues using it. He's saying that one day he may take too much and the drug will be the thing that kills him.

    General CommentI adore this song.
    I think the best part of this song is he takes his actual [I assume,] recordings of the progress of each day. It's so cool how that if you didn't know this song was about heroin use you'd think it was just another sappy love song about some chick. Especially the line 'Take me in your arms, The way you did last night.' It's freakin' amazing.

    General CommentThis is all about his addiction to heroin. In his book, he talks a great deal about the difference between persian and china white. The passages that he reads are also from the book, which is a collection of daily writings while he was spiraling out of control with his heroin addiction.

    General CommentThis, for me, is the one song that sums up the whole album. It's executed perfectly, and the story is deep and moving. The 'girl' speaks Persian, because when Nikki ODed in 1987, it was Persian heroin.
    "And though I hardly know her
    I let her in my veins
    And trust her with my life"
    Nikki's dealer gave him this type of heroin for the first time, Nikki was drunk and the dealer offered him to shoot him up, causing him to instantly OD. He was then checked into a clinic and that's what the second part of the song describes.

    General CommentLike ferreusmilitis, I had a similar situation. Mine was with ecstasy and acid though. This song almost makes me cry. Especially the part where he talks like "Day 1, day 2, etc."

    Amazing song.
