I need love
You need love
We all really need love
All I want
All I need
We all really need love

I just wanna tell you how I feel
I just wanna have a love that's real
How can I stop this burning desire?
I can see that you are the one for me
You're the only one I really need
I need a love that burns like a fire

I need love
You need love
We all really need love
All I want
All I need
We all really need love

All I wanna do is give it a chance
Everybody needs a true romance
I would give anything to be with you
I will give you all the love you need
If you only give your love to me
What would I do if I were without you?

I need love
You need love
We all really need love
All I want
All I need
We all really need love

I need love
I need love
I need love

I need love
You need love
We all really need love
All I want
All I need
We all really need love

I need love
I need love
I need love

    This totally reflects my feelings. "I need a love that burns like a fire." This is the best song on the debut album.

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.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
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.

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.
