When I was young I was the nicest guy I knew I thought I was the chosen one But time went by and I found out a thing or two My shine wore off as time wore on I thought that I was living out the perfect life But in the lonely hours when the truth begins to bite I thought about the times when I turned my back & stalled I ain't no nice guy after all
When I was young I was the only game in town I thought I had it down for sure, But time went by and I was lost in what I found The reasons blurred, the way unsure I thought that I was living life the only way But as I saw that life was more than day to day I turned around, I read the writing on the wall
I ain't no nice guy after all I ain't no nice guy after all
In all the years you spend between your birth and death You find there's lots of times you should have saved your breath It comes as quite a shock when that trip leads to fall

"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.
