Wednesday Warren – Searching for a Heart

Most love songs are pretty insipid, to tell the truth. “Oh, baby, I love you so much… Oh, baby, why don’t you love me back…?” But Zevon’s love songs somehow manage to distill heartache and passion into simple metaphors and moments that resonate. Here’s “Searching for a Heart” from Mr. Bad Example:

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
