One day, you will be cared to realize
By the look that's in my eyes

How much I love you (love you)
And if you leave you'll lose a precious love (you'll lose a precious love)

Somehow, these arms of mine can't let you go
The touch of my hand, baby should let you know

How much I love you (love you)
And if you leave you'll lose a precious love (you'll lose a precious love)

We go together like hand and glove
Don't destroy our precious love
Somehow these arms of mine can't let you go
The touch of my hand should let you know

How much I love you (love you)
And if you leave you'll lose a precious love (you'll lose a precious love)
Mmh, you'll lose a precious love
The touch of my hand should let you know you'll lose a precious 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.

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”
