Warren Zevon - Nobody's In Love This Year Lyrics




We keep walking away for no reason at all
And no one says a word
We were always so busy protecting ourselves
We never would have heard
And the rate of attrition for lovers like us
Is steadily on the rise
Nobody's in love this year
Not even you and I

Due to lack of commitment on both of our parts
We're going our separate ways
This show of indifference is breaking our hearts
It's making us crazy, yeah
You sit back and wait for your love to accrue
You'll be waiting a long, long time
Nobody's in love this year
Not even you and I

I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable
I don't want to get hurt
I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable
I don't want to be the one who gets left behind

We keep walking away for no reason at all
For the sake of being free
No one's invested enough of themselves
To yield to maturity
And the rate of attrition for lovers like us
Is steadily on the rise
Nobody's in love this year
Nobody wants to try
Nobody's in love this year
Not even you and I

I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable
I don't want to get hurt
I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable
I don't want to be the one who gets left behind

  5. Takayuki Ishiguro

    Looks like he had already known the coming of Millennials long before they were born.

  6. Burak Bilecen

    If she's goint to fall in love with me, I can accept to be Mr. Vulnerable...

  7. Kat Harper

    Photo @2:13 is one of my favorite ones of my God, Warren Zevon.

  8. Kat Harper

    Warren...so sorry you met women who made you feel that way...you deserved every happiness....like YOU'VE GIVEN ME.

  9. Rick S

    They tore up the blueprint after they made Warren Zevon. There'll never be another like him.

  10. Geffry B King

    The Bachrach / David is strong with this one.

  11. Midnight Rider

    beautuful song i just had a break up with my ex on my birthday of alll days she'll be the only woman i'll ever truly love, plenty of fish in the sea? thats just a lie i can proudly say i'm single for life

  12. Thomas Hofheinz

    No one's invested enough of themselves
    To yield at maturity

  13. Darren Traynor

    I got this great album going through a really painful breakup. I never thought my heart would ever heal.

  14. Brian Grant

    Happy Valentines day REST IN PEACE WARREN Thanks again this post !!!!!!!!!

  15. Richard Egan

    Bravo! "Criminally Overlooked" is probably the best way I've ever heard Warren Zevon described. This guy produced a large body of brilliant and very intelligently written and composed work, but you only ever hear the same two songs ever played on the radio. Perhaps it will take another 50 or 60 years before Warren Zevon's tallest is fully appreciated.

  16. Michael Burke

    Thank you for this~! I love Warren and didn't remember this at all.................................

    One of Warren's overlooked songs, albums ... "I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable ..."

  18. Thomas Hofheinz

    This song is from a very brilliant and criminally overlooked album, Transverse City. It was twenty years too early, depicting human experience in a world controlled by technology, huge corporate indifference, and surveillance. I can't recommend it enough.

    Nathan Worcester

    @Thomas Hofheinz My thoughts exactly, though it should be noted that Garcia's guitar solo on the title track can't be underrated enough (and I say this as a Dead Head).

    Thomas Hofheinz

    Garcia was a really interesting guitarist, a kind of genius, but he fuzzed out in the signal/noise spectrum sometimes.

    Gordon Grant

    Thomas Hofheinz
    Just listened to it all the way through for the first time. Must be in his top 5 easilly.

    Thomas Hofheinz

    I'm looking for a copy right now.

    Scott Harrisohn

    one of his best albums

  19. Nightfall95

    This song and "The Heartache" have been sounds of comfort right now after a recent break up. He really knew how to be honest in a song and I can relate to both so much right now in every lyric. He went too soon.

  20. Brian Grant

    Thanks for posting this 8592 hits what a pity Warren could write about anything LOVE ,War , just good old R&R or an opera anyway thanks again 

  21. Mr. Camel Bluez

    Haven't heard this in years.Thanks for the upload!

    Gordon Grant

    Mr. Camel Bluez
    You can download me!

  22. Thomas Hofheinz

    It's just wrong that he's dead. Stupid thing to say, yes, but I've felt this way since he died.

    Ralph Chunksoup

    Hes not dead he is driving Jesus crazy....might have got him playing drums

  23. Aaron Woodin

     Uhhh.... Just had a breakup two hours ago.  First song that came to mind...

  24. Thomas Hofheinz

    This guy was reading my mail.

  25. Nicholas Leishman

    Yep, it's the way Warren was saying so much.. still does too! Fantastic tune!

  26. Annette Guidry

    So blatantly honest and actually very vulnerable -- he seemed soft and fragile inside. May his soul be blessed, he touched the souls of so many, just by being himself.

  27. Joepepe lombardo

    @cosmicrider287 mr. bad ass

  28. Annie Schonkeren

  29. smiddlecn
