Bob Dylan: Accidentally Like A Martyr (Warren Zevon)

bob-dylan - warren zevon

The phone don’t ring
And the sun refused to shine
Never thought I’d have to pay so dearly
For what was already mine

Shadow love
Random love
And abandoned love
Accidentally like a martyr
The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder

‘Accidentally Like a Martyr’ was released on Warren Zevon’s brilliant 1978 album “Excitable Boy”
