What I mean, what I am
What I feel about the meaning of my life
What I need, what I feel
What I like to say and what I lie about

What I can't get, choose to it
I get out of my mind
The world's just up my feelings
And I just can't even cry

I should rare my way back home right now
('Cause I gave her everything I got)
I can't stand the way she broke my heart
('Cause I gave her)

All my dreams, all my hopes
Are the things I love and that I use to know
God, I pray every day
But I feel so empty since you went away

What I can't get, choose to it
I get out of my mind
The world's just up my feelings
And I just can't even cry

I should rare my way back home right now
(Because I gave her everything I got)
I can't stand the way she broke my heart
(Because I gave her)

What I can't get, choose to it
I get out of my mind
The world's just up my feelings
And I just can't even cry

This moon will last forever
Or maybe till I die
So why keep holding on
Until I get another time

I should rare my way back home right now
(I'm gonna give her everything I got)
I can't stand the way she broke my heart
(No I can't stand the way you broke my heart)

I should rare my way back home right now
('Cause I gave her everything I got)
I can't stand the way she broke my heart

I should rare my way back home right now
I can't stand the way she broke my heart

    If this is the song I think it is, it´s just so so beautiful. I makes me relax. It´s so sad and heart breaking

    Yeah! this song it's so heart-breaking. It makes me less heavy the sadness to know that there is a lyric that explains exactly the way how I feel in this fucking moment.

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.

Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.
