In the song Dion sings about “cocaine lies,” but I saw an interview with him when the album came out.

He had stopped using drugs by then and mostly what he talked about was his heroin problem…and how hard it was to get off the smack.

I was wise in my own eyes

Woke one day to realize

The junkie in the mirror with the pinprick eyes

He’s the King of the New York Streets
