Name that song (spoken word lyrics) by BruceM

Question 4

"Hold on, this song has a little introduction to it
It's ain't supposed to be sad though you might feel it that way
It's a song about desperation
Every now and then we do get desperate
This is a song about L-O-V-E
And if you abuse it you're gonna lose it
And if you lose it you're gonna abuse it and
If you abuse it you ain't gonna be able to choose it"

(from Peter Wolf's intro to the frequently played live version of a 1974 hit)
