Warren Zevon - Searching For A Heart Lyrics




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

    Golden Man with a velvet-gravel voice which OWNS my heart, note after note. A brilliant mind, a dazzling Spirit in full flight with this song, Warren and his beloved L.A. No other City could have birthed such a Rebel Soul as his... .but Warren could have strode the dusty backroads of the Middle Ages, a boon companion of Troubadours and Chaucer, a lute strapped to his back. He is just that Timeless, just that Ageless...just that HIM. Shakespeare might have shared a glass of wine with Warren and envied his matchless way with Words...poetry and drama set to Music...and wondered at the Renegade Heart which drove him. Warren could have ridden with Crusaders...Himself To Know. But HOW can you know the Unknowable...plumb the depths of the Unfathomable? Only WARREN could touch the Eternal Fire which lit his Self. ....and emerge the wiser for his wounds. He is Timeless, Ageless, Priceless, Deathless...he is truly Eternal. He is IRREPLACEABLE. And he is very much ALIVE...Gods and Legends NEVER die, you see, and Warren Zevon is BOTH....

    Rip dad. I'll always be searching for your heart. If only you stuck to the plan

  8. Warrensdeciple

    Certain Individuals aren't sticking to the plan

  9. studded sail

    JEFF PORCARO!
    Boy, what a sweet surprise to see him in this video

  11. desvidrrs

    Warren, a truly great American songwriter singing about the greatest thing...Love.

  12. Kat Harper

    I'm totally shattered. This....there are no words that do this song justice...this Zevonian masterpiece, with the shots of Warren walking the nighttime streets of his beloved L.A...long black coat, with that breathtaking spill of golden ponytail between broad, black-clad shoulders...a gunfighter savoring a moment of peace between showdowns. Then I am faced with the utterly vicious WASTE of such an incandescent Spirit: a man who could reach right into your chest and wrench your heart loose from its moorings with the sheer force of his genius, then kindle a warm glow in that same heart...a smile, a chuckle, and suddenly Life is good again. And THIS was torn from us at the last of his numberless apexes of talent, ripped away by the Vast Indifference Of Heaven when he still had so much left to give. And people ask me why I don't believe in God? The answer is self-evident: I DO believe in a God. He walks the nighttime streets of the City of Angels, vibrant, Forever Alive, gifted beyond imagination, absolutely Irreplaceable...a Legend in a long black coat and golden ponytail. And suddenly I'm NOT an atheist, after all....

    Brenda Harper

    warren jones Great first name ya got goin for you there!! WZ is still the greatest talent out there...no question. And yes, I'm aware that, tragically, he's no longer HERE. Trust me...he's simply exchanged Realities, and where he is now is the better for his presence there. See...Legends never die...and Warren was, is, and shall ALWAYS be the greatest Legend of them all.
    Rock the Pillars of Heaven, Mr. Bad Example! And save me a seat, front row , center!

    Brenda Harper

    warren jones GREAT first name. Of course you were moved emotionally by this beautiful song. You have a soul. For myself, I confess to an absolute addiction.Everyone has an addiction. Mine just happens to be Warren Zevon. For me, he is both God of Music and Irreplaceable Legend. Matchless talent, genius...Spirit. He lives Forever, you see...for Gods and Legends NEVER die, and Warren Zevon IS BOTH!! He lives Forever on the Edge of Dreams.....
