I don't mind telling you.
I don't mind.
Don't try changing me now, model for your ways.
Hey, Joe, make it so, make it so.
You're wasting your time, drop dead in my doorway.
Hey, Joe, whaddya know, what do you know?
Looking in space, you won't find it there.
Hey, ray, is this the way we're gonna live?
Selling our bodies on sunset strip?
I go it bad.
I can't wait til they think it's good.
I got it bad.
I can't wait til it's understood.
I got it bad.
Don't try pulling my leg with your name-dropping chatter.
Hey, Joe, whaddya know, what do you know?
'cause you don't got me pegged, no rung on your ladder.
Hey, Joe, make it so, make it so.
If I ever get through, watch out!
I know what it takes.
You got what that is.
And this is the break
I can make you.
[repeat]
I got it bad.
I can't wait til they think it's good.
I got it bad.
I can't wait til it's understood.
I got it bad.
Shame for the fame and the name of the game.
Hey, ray, is this the way we're gonna live?
Selling our bodies on sunset strip?
I can't wait til they think it's good.
I got it bad.
I can't wait til it's understood.
I got it bad.
I can't wait til they say good.
I got it bad.
I got it bad.
Shame for the fame and the name of the game.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.

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”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
