Afternoon low tide, workin' my plan Got one hand in the water, the other in the sand Two beers in a cooler, one warm heart in place Got a picture in a bottle, one nailed up to a palm tree One out in the wind and they all look like me I want somebody to be the feeling's all over my face
Oh, I've never been more ready than I am right now I know sooner or later, someday, somehow Somebody's gonna walk up And join somebody sittin' right here So wherever, whoever you are the coast is clear
I close my eyes and the sound of the waves Carries me forward to better days And they open my eyes to the woman of my dreams strolling in With a small touch of shyness and a smooth kind of style She kisses me on the cheek and she says with a smile "I've been waiting all my life for you baby, where have you been?"
Oh, I've never been more ready than I am right now I know sooner or later, someway, somehow Somebody's gonna walk up And join somebody sittin' right here So wherever, whoever you are the coast is clear
Girl, wherever, whoever you are the coast is clear Afternoon low tide, I'm just workin' my plan Right now, right here the coast is clear oh, yeah

"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.
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
