Had heard that lyrics of this may be about drug addiction?
The song's lyrics are often considered to suggest simple, conventional romantic devotion, possibly alluding to Reed's relationship with Bettye Kronstadt (soon to become his first wife) and Reed’s own conflicts with his sexuality, drug use, and ego.
A deeper reading of the song's lyrics, however, despite the idealized description of a "perfect day", considering interposed lines such as "You just keep me hanging on" and "I thought I was someone else, someone good", suggest a far deeper yearning than just the superficial romantic clichés, alluding to the underlying and painful bitterness of nostalgia often felt even as an event is lived – an event one knows or fears to be a mere distraction or illusion.
Some commentators have further seen the lyrical subtext as displaying Reed's romanticized attitude towards a period of his own addiction to heroin; this popular understanding of the song as an ode to addiction led to its inclusion in the soundtrack for Trainspotting, a film about the lives of heroin users.
