I caught the darkness, it was drinking from your cup I caught the darkness drinking from your cup I said is this contagious? You said just drink it up.
I got no future, I know my days are few The present's not that pleasant Just a lot of things to do I thought the past would last me But the darkness got that too
I shoulda seen it coming It was right behind your eyes You were young and it was summer I just had to take a dive When I knew was easy, the darkness was the price.
I don't smoke no cigarette, I don't drink no alcohol I ain't had much loving yet But that's always been your call Hey I don't miss it baby I got no taste for anything at all
I used to love the rainbow And I used to love the view Another early morning, I'd pretend that it was you But I caught the darkness baby And I got it worse than you
I caught the darkness, it was drinking from your cup I caught the darkness, drinking from your cup I said is this contagious? You said just drink it up

"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.
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
