How long is a life how many ways can you try on
How long is your life how many ways did you try on
Don't need to reach the end when you know what's there
No one knows what's there
Get in get out don't lose time in the roundabout
Get in get out read your map if you ever doubt
Try on try out all different sense
Try on reach out for distant suns

The way we take, the one we don't
The one we left, the one we change
The one that burns, the one that freezes
The one we built, the one we are
Along the way there's some ways we take another way

Got power to ponder
To construct to structure
To be tuned, uninterfered
To conquer our inner self
To prevent and assure
To invent our future

Fighting the resistance of time
With persistence of faith
Softly, cunningly, cleaning the dirt
Wildly, radiantly, drowning the rebirth

Winged by pressure
Dazzled by pleasure
Distorted absorbed
Restored again and again

There's an after to every now
An answer to every how
There's an after to every now

The way we take, the one we don't
The one we left, the one we change
The one that burns, the one that freezes
The one we built, the one we are
Along the way there's some ways we take another way

There's a way there's one way and that is the way
There's a way
Away

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?

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.
