Lyrics for Kickstart My Heart by Mötley Crüe:

Verse 1
When I get high, I get high on speed
Top fuel funny car's a drug for me
My heart, my heart
Kickstart my heart
Always got the cops coming after me
Custom built bike doing 103
My heart, my heart
Kickstart my heart

Pre-Chorus
Ooh, are you ready girls?
Ooh, are you ready now?

Chorus
Whoa, yeah
Kickstart my heart, give it a start
Whoa, yeah
Baby
Whoa, yeah
Kickstart my heart, hope it never stops
Ooh, yeah
Baby, yeah

Verse 2
Skydive naked from an aeroplane
Or a lady with a body from outer space
My heart, my heart
Kickstart my heart
Say I got trouble, trouble in my eyes
I'm just looking for another good time
My heart, my heart
Kickstart my heart

Pre-Chorus
Yeah, are you ready girls?
Yeah, are you ready now, now, now?

Chorus
Whoa, yeah
Kickstart my heart, give it a start
Whoa, yeah
Baby
Whoa, yeah
Kickstart my heart, hope it never stops
Whoa, yeah
Baby

Bridge
Kickstart my heart
When we started this band, all we needed
Needed was a laugh
Years gone by, I'd say we've kicked some ass
When I'm enraged or hitting the stage
Adrenaline rushing through my veins
And I'd say we're still kicking ass
I say, ooh-ah
Kickstart my heart, hope it never stops
And to think, we did all of this to rock

Chorus
Whoa, yeah
Kickstart my heart, give it a start
Whoa, yeah
B-b-b-b-b-b-baby
Whoa, yeah
Kickstart my heart, hope it never stops
Whoa, yeah
Baby
Kickstart my heart, hope it never stops
Whoa, yeah
Baby
Whoa, yeah
Kickstart my heart, give it a start
Whoa, yeah

Outro
Kickstart my heart

Song Facts

The 2nd single off of the band’s fifth album Dr. Feelgood, Mötley Crüe’s bassist Nikki Sixx wrote this song after an accidental heroin overdose in 1987.

He was declared clinically dead before being revived by two adrenaline shots to the heart. It’s an interesting fact that the EMT who administered both shots was a Mötley Crüe fan. After the first shot did not work and Sixx was essentially dead, the EMT decided on a second one which ultimately saved his life!

To that end, Sixx uses this song to describe his new methods of attaining the intense experiences he craves as he is trying to remain sober after the OD.
