Frozen Notes
written by Warren Zevon 1971
Mr. Bones Music Inc. Publishing BMI

Softly falls the morning rain
Loneliness comes around again
And I sit and sing my song
'Though it never seems to matter
And it never fills the emptiness inside

Frozen notes hang suspended in the autumn air
While someone waits for someone to come somewhere
No one waits for me
'Cause I thought I wanted to be free
Now I'm wondering why I said goodbye
Looking through my window
At the dark and troubled sky
I think I see the ship of the brokenhearted passing by
And I turn away
From today
To where we used to lie
And I cry
Yes, I cry
And I cry
While softly falls the morning rain
Loneliness comes around again

You Don't Know What Love Is
written by Don Raye and Gene DePaul
1941 MCA Music Publishing ASCAP

You don't know what love is
Until you've learned the meaning of the Blues
Until you've loved a love you had to lose
You don't know what love is

You don't know how lips hurt
Until you've kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you've flipped your heart and you have lost
You don't know what love is


Roll With the Punches
written by Warren Zevon 1992 Zevon Music Inc.

Johnny never knew what hit him
When he first met Julia
He used to be so wild and free
Time treats everybody like a fool

You gotta roll with the punches
The sun is sinkin' low
You gotta roll with the punches
Honey, we ain't never goin' home

Johnny had a '57 Chevy
With four-on-the-floor and a 429
We used to take it out to Wild Horse Pike
Run it out to the end of the line

You gotta roll with the punches
The sun is sinkin' low
You gotta roll with the punches
Honey, we ain't never goin' home

If You Won't Leave Me I'll Find Somebody Who Will
written by Warren Zevon 1993
Sony Tunes o/b/o CPTV Music Inc. BMI

Ever look out you window, babe
And wonder what was going down in the street below
Out where the four winds blow
Ever stand in the crossroads, babe
And know it didn't really matter which road you chose
Heaven knows
I'm a refugee from the mansion on the hill
And if you won't leave me I'll find somebody who will

Real or Not
written by Warren Zevon 1994
Music Corporation of America Inc. BMI

They say the devil's in the details
I know what they mean
I'm walking in the wasteland
With the Ghost in the Machine

There's a simulated sunset
Starlight in my eyes
The skies are filled with miracles
And half of them are lies

Are you real or not?
It's a fine line
Are you ready or not
For the light of day
Are you real or not?
These are strange times
And I don't want to live this way

When you wake up from a nightmare
And it's worse when you're awake
And there's no one you can turn to
And there's nothing you can take

Are you real or not?
It's a fine line
Are you ready or not
For the light of day ?
Are you real or not?
These are strange times
And I don't want to live this way
