It must be love that whispers in my ear
It must be love that we keep trying to hear
'Cause I imagined this kind of wonderful choice
I imagine you hear the very same voice
When I speak to you
You say "That's just my imagination"
Oh no, no, no
It Must Be Love
It Must Be Love

Perhaps one girl who was moving in a fine line
Finds one boy in back
That she can always stand behind
And it's you and me
'Cause that's where we want to be
Oh, It Must Be Love,
It Must Be Love

People look through everything they see
'Cause there's so many other things to be
I have seen you walking in the rain
I wanted to know why you were crying
I want to fix what's wrong

It must be love the sailor sails for
Must be love that drives a bottle to the bottom of the ocean floor
Because I imagine all kinds of wonderful water
I would have you there wherever I'll go
Way from the seventh sea,
He brings the bottle back to me
Oh, It Must Be Love
Oh, It Must Be Love
People look through everything they see
There's so many other things to be
I have seen you walking in the rain
I want to know why you were crying
Baby, let me fix what's wrong

It must be love that fathoms the moonlight
Must be love that shallows
The deepest part of the night
So you can show them with your eye
The things that make them cry,
Because that Must Be Love
It Must Be Love
And the way you are
Must Be Love
And the things you Feel
Oh, It Must Be Love,
Oh, It Must Be Love
Must Be Love

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.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

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.
