searching for a heart lyrics – warren zevon

“searching for a heart”

darkness in the morning
shadows on the land
certain individuals
aren’t sticking with the plan

and i’m searching for a heart
searching everyone
they say love conquers all
you can’t start it like a car
you can’t stop it with a gun

leaving in the evening
traveling at night
staying inconspicuous
i’m staying out of sight

and i’m searching for a heart
searching everyone
they say love conquers all
you can’t start it like a car
you can’t stop it with a gun

they tell me love requires a little standing in line
and i’ve been waiting for you, lover, for a long, long time
i’ve been pacing the floor
i’ve been watching the door
meanwhile i’ll keep searching for a heart

searching high and low for you
trying to track you down
certain individuals
have finally come around

and i’m searching for a heart
searching everyone
they say love conquers all
you can’t start it like a car
you can’t stop it with a gun

they tell me love requires a little standing in line
and i’ve been waiting for you, lover, for a long, long time
i’ve been pacing the floor i’ve been watching the door
meanwhile i’ll keep searching for a heart
searching everyone
they say love conquers all
you can’t start it like a car
