How does it feel runnin' around, 'round, 'round?
How does it feel watching from upside down?
'Cause many years from now there will be new sensations
And new temptations
How does it feel?

How does it feel right at the start?
And how does it feel when you are thrown apart?
'Cause many years from now there will be new elations
And new frustrations
How does it feel? Oh, oh

Do you know, know, know what it's like
To be searchin' in your own time?
All your attempting, experimenting, all on the climb
Do you know, know, know what it's like
To be searching and suddenly find
All your illusion, all your confusion, all left behind?

How does it feel turnin' away?
And how does it feel facing another day?
'Cause many years from now there will be newer poisons
And new horizons
How does it feel? Oh, oh, oh

Do you know, know, know what it's like
To be searchin' in your own time?
All your attempting, experimenting, all on the climb
Do you know, know, know what it's like
To be searching and suddenly find
All your illusion, all your confusion, all left behind?

'Cause many years from now there will be new tomorrows
And still some sorrows
How does it feel? Oh, oh, oh

Do you know, know, know what it's like
To be searchin' in your own time?
All your attempting, experimenting, all on the climb, oh
Do you know, know, know what it's like
To be searching and suddenly find
All your illusion, all your confusion, all left behind?

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.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
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.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
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.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.
