​This One's From The Heart

This song is by Tom Waits, features Crystal Gayle and appears on the soundtrack album One From the Heart (1982).

I should go out and honk the horn
It's Independence Day
But instead I just pour myself a drink
It's got to be love
I've never felt this way
Oh baby, this one's from the heart

The shadows on the wall look like a railroad track
I wonder if he's ever coming back
The moon's a yellow stain across the sky
Oh baby, this one's from the heart

Maybe I'll go down to the corner and get a racing form
But I should probably wait here by the phone
And the brakes need adjustment on the convertible
Oh baby, this one's from the heart

The worm is climbing the avocado tree
Rubbing its back against the wall
I pour myself a double sympathy
Oh baby, this one's from the heart

Blondes, brunettes and redheads put their hammer down
To pound a cold chisel through my heart
But they were nothing but apostrophes
Oh baby, this one's from the heart

I can't tell is that a siren or a saxophone
But the roads get so slippery when it rains
I love you more than all these words can ever say
Oh baby, this one's from the heart
