We were young and so inspired We weren't the only ones who thought We'd change the world No sun would set without us No one we knew could ever doubt us
We had our future figured out We knew a love like ours would always save the day And that we'd always be okay
[Chorus] But would you know me now? Would you lay me down beside you Tell me everything I want to hear Like that was your favorite year Like that was your favorite year?
You looked at me like no one else But sometimes love just doesn't seem to conquer all We search for someone else to blame But sometimes things can't stay the same
Holding on to the memories Of when we were younger I can't forget 'Cause when we were together That's when I was at my best
And would you know me now? Would you lay me down beside you Tell me all the things I long to hear Like that was your favorite year Like that was your favorite year? 'Cause that was my favorite year

"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
