She speaks to me in Persian
Tells me that she loves me
The girl with golden eyes
And though I hardly know her
I let her in my veins
And trust her with my life

I wish I had never kissed her
'Cause I just can't resist her
The girl with golden eyes
Every time she whispers
'Take me in your arms
The way you did last night.'

Everything will be okay
Everything will be alright
If I can get away from her
And save my worthless life.

I wake up every morning
Jonesing for her love
The girl with golden eyes
I won't have to wait long
'Til she buries me with roses
'Cause she's always by my side

Everything will be okay
Everything will be alright
If I can get away from her
And save my worthless life.

[Spoken Word]
Day one. Dope free. I went to the clinic today and got the first dose of methadone.
I'm out of dope so I threw away all my rigs.
Day two. I can't believe it's been two days without junk.
Fucking smack, it just ruins peoples' lives.
At first it seems so sweet, then you wake up next to a monster.
Day three. I haven't had anything for three days now.
This withdrawal is killing me. It's like shock therapy to my guts.
Day four. Last visit to the clinic. My whole body feels like it's cracking into pieces.
Fragile doesn't even come close to describing how I feel.
Day five-- I'm sick as a dog, but this handful of painkillers
and a lotta whiskey's gonna get me through.
Day six-- When I'm left to my own devices I go fucking insane.
I'll never use heroin again.
Day seven-- I can't believe I'm clean!
Day eight-- Everyone says I look better--
Day nine-- The parasites are panicking--
Day ten-- They seem amazed that I'm alive!

Everything will be okay
Everything will be alright
If I can get away from her
And save my worthless life.
Everything will be okay
Everything will be alright
If I can get away from her
And save my worthless life.

    It's clearly about heroine. He got into therapy to get rid of his addiction. Then in the next song in the album... doesn't he relapse or something?

    It's obious what this is about, getting over heroin. waking up to a day and just trying to get away from the girl. each day she tempts you and is being seductive to the speaker.

    she is callingout and the speker is pushing her away, day after day he wants to get rid of her, and not fall back to her, to hold her in his arms (or just injectiong it in to his arms) Days one to Ten he is copeing with the loss of the seductive golden eyed girl, everyone thinks he will go back to her, but in the tenth day she is gone, he no longer lusts for her, he has a new life.

    So all in all this is about the speaker getting over the 'Girl With Golden Eyes'

    Yup... "morrison25" is right. it's all about his heroin addiction as indicated with his story through his withdrawl... day one-ten. it's talking about how if he can get away from heroin he will save his life...which he prolly did. I agree with morrison, it's incredibly deep and if you dont get him and what he's gone through, or unless you've gone through it yourself you probably wont get the song...

    The drug through his mind tells him to take it "tells me that she loves me" and he regrets starting because now hes addicted to it. "I wish i never had kissed her cause i just cant resist her, the girl with golden eyes"
