"The Heartache" as written by and Warren Zevon....
Shadows falling in the noonday sun
Blue feeling to the maximum
Look what happens when you love someone
And they don't love you

The heartache
The risk you run
The chance you take
When you love someone
And the sorrow
For the lonely one
When the heartache comes

Never thought I'd be alone like this
Guess I should have been a realist
That's the trouble with relationships
They end too soon

And the heartache
The risk you run
The chance you take
When you love someone
And the sorrow
For the lonely one
When the heartache comes
And the darkness falls
And the rain comes down
In the midst of spring
There's a sadness in the heart of things

And the heartache
The risk you run
The chance you take
When you love someone
And the sorrow
For the lonely one
When the heartache comes

Shadows falling in the noonday sun
Blue feeling to the maximum

    General CommentThis is a spectacularly sad song for all those who have loved and/or longed for another that does not feel the same. The “Sentimental Hygiene” album is just full of sad and biting (nasty good) commentary from Warren Zevon and is one that I played nonstop for a long time. What a fine songwriter he was and will be missed.

    General CommentSimilar lyrically and in feeling to Bob Dylan's song NOT DARK YET from his album TIME OUT OF MIND. Beautiful in every definition of the word.

    General CommentA perfect declaration of my feelings at love lost, 22 Nov 2010. Warren always has a way of writing what you're feeling.
