Quand l'or de Tiffany s'incruste dans les corps
D'une beat generation de Disney store
Et partouzent les murs du Carlton Arms Hotel
Des filles de peinture qui font l'amour au ciel
J'aimerais savoir combien d'entre elles
N'ont pas pleuré de joie
En me voyant faire de même avec toi

Ca crève les yeux

Les néons de Time Square continuent de cracher
Un flot de fausse lumière qui sent le renfermé
Mais ça flashe entre nos murs autant s'y réfugier
Vingt-cinq enluminures éblouissent le plancher
J'ai peiné à croire que l'une d'entre elles
N'ait pas pleuré de joie
En te voyant faire de même avec moi

Ca crève les yeux

Qui a donc pris le temps de regarder en l'air
D'oublier le présent d'oublier les affaires ?
Ca rève entre nos murs, regarde ces furies
Faire monter le mercure, l'amour au ralenti
Je n'en attendais pas moins d'elles
J'en ai pleuré de joie
C'est toujours le même problème avec moi
Je n'en attendais pas moins d'elles
J'en ai pleuré de joie
C'es toujours un nouveau poème avec toi

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
