Van Halen, rarely known for their deep, meaningful lyrics, turns in a standard job verses-wise here. Let's put it this way: The first line, "Everybody's looking for something," verbatim, also shows up in the songs "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)
" and Olivia Newton-John's "I'll Bet You A Kangaroo," with countless more "everybody's lookin'" phrases in other songs. Love, apparently, lasts forever and is experienced by two people together, say thousands of other songs as well. Somebody should just make a set of love-song-lyrics refrigerator magnets.
We're just pointing out, however, that it's to the band's credit that the lyrics come off as incredibly poignant and thoughtful when set to the amazing music.
