Love needs a heart

Love needs a heart
And I need to find
If love needs a heart
Like mine

- Jackson Browne

Love needs a heart is a beautiful song not written by Jackson Browne but appearing on the Runnin on Empty 77 tour album this song is wonderful and has brought tears to my eyes after a breakup.

I'm looking for guitar tabs for Love Needs A Heart". Can't find it anywhere. Help!

Yes, LOVE NEEDS A HEART is a killer. But it WAS written by Jackson Browne, along with Valerie Carter and Lowell George. At least according to the credits.

Another really great song is the title, RUNNING ON EMPTY -- if you're anywhere over thirty.

(In sixty-nine) I was twenty-one
And I called the road my own
I don't know when that road
Turned onto the one I'm on.
You know I don't even know
what I'm hoping to find
Running into the sun,
But I'm running behind.

The whole album is one of the most brilliantly executed albums ever. Way underrated. Every song recorded live on the road, about being on the road, as a musician and as a metaphor for Life.

I'd love to stick around
But I'm running behind.
