The love line is never straight and narrow Unless your love is tried and true We take a chance with new beginnings Still we try win or lose Take the highs with the blues
Always one more You're never satisfied Share one for all with you It's only one for me Ah, why draw the line And meet you half the way And you don't know What the means, oh yeah
I feel like a running politician, oh Just trying to please you all the time I've given you myself with no conditions Going wide, running long Feeling lost but not for long
Always one more You're never satisfied Share one for all with you It's only one for me So why draw the line Meet you half the way When you don't know What that means, oh yeah
Always one more You're never satisfied Share one for all with you It's only one for me So why draw the line And meet you half the way When you don't know What that means
I'll meet you half the way Whoa yeah I'll meet you half the way Whoa yeah

Jose from Puerto RicoProbably my fav song from the Sammy Era. Eddie is literally on fire with his guitar playing in this tune!
Englishjello from LondonEddie and studio engineer Donn Landee where hanging in Eddie's newly built studio listening to a police scanner. They heard a officer say "5150". They soon found out it's a Los Angeles police code for a escaped mental patient. Eddie decided to name the studio that (He also put stickers of it on his striped guitars). Eddie did come up with the music for this song and it's a killer song. One of the Van Halen's best songs in the Hagar era!
Joe Bloggs from Trinidad And TobagoThe number 5150 and "meet you half the way" in the lyrics made me think it was a reference to a Senate tie breaking vote-- implying a failure to reach a compromise between 2 sides.
Joe from SfIn the film "Collateral" Tom Cruise shoots a guy who later appears in the morgue with "5150" tattooed on his eye lid. Two possibilities: the Van Halen song or the 72-hour psychiatric hold. Based on the guy's career choice, I'll go with the latter... Greg House is correct.
Greg House from Columbia, ScActually 5150 is the code for involuntary psychiatric hold.
Jason from Florence, KyThe version Simon is speaking of is by a band called Charge. They were based out of New Orleans, I belive. I think they changed lead singers and moved to Vegas.
Jason from Florence, KyA great song off a great album...one of VH's best of either era (don't even bring up Gary), IMO. By the way, the version Simon is referring to (the one that sounds like Axl Rose singing) is by the band Charge.
Simon from Nijmegen, NetherlandsOn the internet there is a fake going 'round that would like us to believe that axl rose is singing with ed and the guys.. No dice. Don't know who these guys are but it's pretty good
Eric from Salt Lake City, UtI love this song. It was the song that sold me on Sammy Hagar replacing Dave. The rest of the album was great, but this was the clincher.
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
