"Fever" as written by Benjamin Byrne, James Paul Stelfox, James Milne Walsh and Barry Westhead....
There's a fever
On the freeway
In the morning
In the morning
And the lover
Smiling for me
Without warning
Without warning
There's an outlaw
On the highway
And she's falling
And she's falling
Man I must have been blind
To carry a torch
For most of my life
These days I'm hanging around
You're out of my heart
And out of my town
There's a fever
On the freeway
In the morning
In the morning
And the lover
Smiling for me
While she's falling
While she's falling
Man I must have been blind
To carry a torch
For most of my life
These days I'm hanging around
You're out of my heart
And out of my town
There's a fever
On the freeway
In the morning
In the morning
And the lover
Smiling for me
Without warning
Without warning
Man I must have been blind
To carry a torch
For most of my life
These days I'm hanging around
You're out of my heart
And out of my town

    General CommentTo "carry a torch" for someone is an old-fashioned slang term for infatuation, if I'm not mistaken.

    General CommentI thought "to carry a torch" meant to continue to be infatuated with someone after the relationship ended. In the song, he and this girl are parted, but when she comes back (And the lover / Smiling for me / Without warning) he realizes how stupid it was to keep being obsessed with her after all that time because of whatever reason.

    A torch isn't just love, it is unrequited love left over from a failed relationship.

    General CommentWhat the heck ... why has nobody made any comment on this great song? My interpretation and overinterpretation:
    It is about a very moment when you're recovering from sort of infatuation, when you have already finished some relationship but it returned in the least expected moment. You want to have it all terminated but it still come back to you.
    ... don't get the '' torch'' stuff -any ideas?
