The Eagles lyrics - Album: Hell Freezes Over [1994]

Get Over It

I turn on the tube and what do I see

A whole lotta people cryin' 'don't blame me'

They point their crooked little fingers ar everybody else

Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves

Victim of this, victim of that

Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat

Get over it

Get over it

All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit

Get over it, get over it

You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash

But you might feel better if I gave you some cash

The more I think about it, old billy was right

Let's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight

You don't want to work, you want to live like a king

But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing

Get over it

Get over it

If you don't want to play, then you might as well split

Get over it, get over it

It's like going to confession every time I hear you speak

You're makin' the most of your losin' streak

Some call it sick, but I call it weak

You drag it around like a ball and chain

You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain

You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown

Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down

Complain about the present and blame it on the past

I'd like to find your inner child and kick it's little ass

Get over it

Get over it

All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin' a fit

Get over it, get over it

Get over it

Get over it

It's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit

Get over it, get over it

Love Will Keep Us Alive


I was standing

All alone against the world outside

You were searching

For a place to hide

Lost and lonely

Now you've given me the will to survive

When we're hungry...love will keep us alive

Don't you worry

Sometimes you've just gotta let it ride

The world is changing

Right before your eyes

Now I've found you

There's no more emptiness inside

When we're hungry...love will keep us alive

I would die for you

Climb the highest mountain

Baby, there's nothing I wouldn't do

I was standing

All alone against the worlk outside

You were searching

For a place to hide

Lost and lonely

Now you've given me the will to survive

When we're hungry...love will keep us alive

When we're hungry...love will keep us alive

When we're hungry...love will keep us alive

The Girl From Yesterday


It wasn't reall sad the way they said good-bye

Or maybe it just hurt so bad she couldn't cry

He packed his things, walked out the door and drove away

And she became the girl from yesterday

He took a plane across the sea

To some foreign land

She stayed at home and tried to understand

How someone who had been so close could be so far away

And she became the girl from yesterday

She doesn't know what's right

She doesn't know what's wrong

She only knows the pain that comes from waiting for so long

And she doesn't count the teardrops

That she's cried while he's away

Because she knows deep in her heart

That he'll be back someday

The light's on in the window; she's waiting by the phone

Talking to a memory that's never coming home

She dreams of his returning and the things that he might say

But she'll always be the girl from yesterday

Yeh, she'll always be the girl from yesterday

Learn To Be Still


It's just another day in paradise

As you stumble to your bed

You'd give anything to silence

Those voices ringing in your head

You thought you could find happiness

Just over that green hill

You thought you would be satisfied

But you never will-

Learn to be still

We are like sheep without a shepherd

We don't know how to be alone

So we wander 'round this desert

And wind up following the wrong gods home

But the flock cries out for another

And they keep answering that bell

And one more starry-eyed messiah

Meets a violent farewell-

Learn to be still

Learn to be still

Now the flowers in your garden

They don't smell so sweet

Maybe you've forgotten

The heaven lying at your feet

-solo-

There are so many contridictions

In all these messages we send

(we keep asking)

How do I get out of here

Where do I fit in?

Though the world is torn and shaken

Even if your heart is breakin'

It's waiting for you to awaken

And someday you will-

Learn to be still

Learn to be still

You just keep on runnin'

Keep on runnin'

Tequila Sunrise


It's another tequila sunrise

Starin' slowly 'cross the sky, said goodbye

He was just a hired hand

Workin' on the dreams he planned to try

The days go by

Ev'ry night when the sun goes down

Just another lonely boy in town

And she's out runnin' 'round

She wasn't just another woman

And I couldn't keep from comin' on

It's been so long

Oh, and it's a hollow feelin' when

It comes down to dealin' friends

It never ends

Take another shot of courage

Wonder why the right words never come

You just get numb

It's another tequila sunrise,this old world

Still looks the same,

Another frame, mm...

Hotel California


On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair

Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air

Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway;

I heard the mission bell

And I was thinking to myself,

'this could be heaven or this could be hell'

Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way

There were voices down the corridor,

I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the hotel california

Such a lovely place

Such a lovely face

Plenty of room at the hotel california

Any time of year, you can find it here

Her mind is tiffany-twisted, she got the mercedes bends

She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends

How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.

Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the captain,

'please bring me my wine'

He said, 'we haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine'

And still those voices are calling from far away,

Wake you up in the middle of the night

Just to hear them say...

Welcome to the hotel california

Such a lovely place

Such a lovely face

They livin' it up at the hotel california

What a nice surprise, bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,

The pink champagne on ice

And she said 'we are all just prisoners here, of our own device'

And in the master's chambers,

They gathered for the feast

The stab it with their steely knives,

But they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was

Running for the door

I had to find the passage back

To the place I was before

'relax,' said the night man,

We are programmed to receive.

You can checkout any time you like,

But you can never leave!

Wasted Time


Well baby, there you stand

With your little head, down in your hand

Oh, my god, you can't believe it's happening

Again

Your baby's gone, and you're all alone

And it looks like the end.

And you're back out on the street.

And you're tryin' to remember.

How will you start it over?

You don't know what became.

You don't care much for a stranger's touch,

But you can't hold your man.

You never thought you'd be alone this far

Down the line

And I know what's been on your mind

You're afraid it's all been wasted time

The autumn leaves have got you thinking

About the first time that you fell

You didn't love the boy too much, no, no

You just loved the boy to well, farewell

So you live from day to day, and you dream

About tomorrow, oh.

And the hours go by like minutes

And the shadows come to stay

So you take a little something to

Make them go away

And I could have done so many things, baby

If I could only stop my mind from wondrin' what

I left behind and from worrying 'bout this wasted time

Ooh, another love has come and gone

Ooh, and the years keep rushing on

I remember what you told me before you went out on your own:

'sometimes to keep it together, we got to leave it alone.'

So you can get on with your search, baby, and I can

Get on with mine

And maybe someday we will find , that it wasn't really

Wasted time

Mm,hm

Oh hoo, ooh, ohh,

Ooh,ooh, mm

Pretty Maids All in a Row


Hi there, how are ya? it's been a long time.

Seems like we've come a long way.

My, but we learn so slow

And heroes they come and they go

And leave us behind as if we re's pposed to know why.

Why do we give up our hearts to the past?

And why must we grow up so fast?

And all you wishing well fools with your fortunes,

Someone should send you a rose

With love from a friend. it's nice to hear from you again.

And the storybook comes to a close.

Gone are the ribbons and bows.

Things to remember, places to go,

Pretty maids all in a row.

I Can't Tell You Why


Look at us baby, up all night

Tearing our love apart

Aren't we the same two people who live

Through years in the dark?

Ahh...

Every time I try to walk away

Something makes me turn around and stay

And I can't tell you why

When we get crazy,

It just ain't to right,

(try to keep you head, little girl)

Girl, I get lonely, too

You don't have to worry

Just hold on tight

(don't get caught in your little world)

'cause I love you

Nothing's wrong as far as I can see

We make it harder than it has to be

And I can't tell you why

No, baby, I can't tell you why

I can't tell you why

No, no, baby, I can't tell you why

I can't tell you why

I can't tell you why

New York Minute


Harry got up

Dressed all in black

Went down to the station

And he never came back

They found his clothing

Scattered somewhere down the track

And he won't be down on wall street

In the morning

He had a home

The love of a girl

But men get lost sometimes

As years unfold

One day he crossed some line

And he was too much in this world

But I guess it doesn't matter anymore

In a new york minute

Everything can change

In a new york minute

Things can get pretty strange

In a new york minute

Everything can change

In a new york minute

Lying here in the darkness

I hear the sirens wail

Somebody going to emergency

Somebody's going to jail

If you find somebody to love in this world

You better hand on tooth and nail

The wolf is always at the door

In a new york minute

Everything can change

In a new york minute

Things can get a little strange

In a new york minute

Everything can change

In a new york minute

And in these days

When darkness falls early

And people rush home

To the ones they love

You better take a fool's advice

And tak care of your own

One day they're here;

Next day they're gone

I pulled my coat around my shoulders

And took a walk down through the park

The leaves were falling around me

The groaning city in the gathering dark

On some solitary rock

A desperate lover left his mark,

'baby, I've changed. please come back.'

What the head makes cloudy

The heart makes very clear

The days were so much brighter

In the time when she was here

But I know there's somebody somewhere

Make these dark clouds disappear

Until that day, I have to believe

I believe, I believe

In a new york minute

Everything can change

In a new york minute

You can get out of the rain

In a new york minute

Everything can change

In a new york minute

The Last Resort


She came from providence,

The one in rhode island

Where the old world shadows hang

Heavy in the air

She packed her hopes and dreams

Like a refugee

Just as her father came across the sea

She heard about a place people were smilin'

They spoke about the red man's way,

And how they loved the land

And they came from everywhere

To the great divide

Seeking a place to stand

Or a place to hide

Down in the crowded bars,

Out for a good time,

Can't wait to tell you all,

What it's like up there

And they called it paradise

I don't know why

Somebody laid the mountains low

While the town got high

Then the chilly winds blew down

Across the desert

Through the canyons of the coast, to

The malibu

Where the pretty people play,

Hungry for power

To light their neon way

And give them things to do

Some rich men came and raped the land,

Nobody caught 'em

Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and jesus,

People bought 'em

And they called it paradise

The place to be

They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea

You can leave it all behind

And sail to lahaina

Just like the missionaries did, so many years ago

They even brought a neon sign: 'jesus is coming'

Brought the white man's burden down

Brought the white man's reign

Who will provide the grand design?

What is yours and what is mine?

'cause there is no more new frontier

We have got to make it here

We satisfy our endless needs and

Justify our bloody deeds,

In the name of destiny and the name

Of god

And you can see them there,

On sunday morning

They stand up and sing about

What it's like up there

They call it paradise

I don't know why

You call someplace paradise,

Kiss it goodbye

Take It Easy


Well, I'm running down the road

Tryin' to loosen my load

I've got seven women on

My mind,

Four that wanna own me,

Two that wanna stone me,

One says she's a friend of mine

Take it easy, take it easy

Don't let the sound of your own wheels

Drive you crazy

Lighten up while you still can

Don't even try to understand

Just find a place to make your stand

And take it easy

Well, I'm a standing on a corner

In winslow, arizona

And such a fine sight to see

It's a girl, my lord, in a flatbed

Ford slowin' down to take a look at me

Come on, baby, don't say maybe

I gotta know if your sweet love is

Gonna save me

We may lose and we may win though

We will never be here again

So open up, I'm climbin' in,

So take it easy

Well I'm running down the road trying to loosen

My load, got a world of trouble on my mind

Lookin' for a lover who won't blow my

Cover, she's so hard to find

Take it easy, take it easy

Don't let the sound of your own

Wheels make you crazy

Come on baby, don't say maybe

I gotta know if your sweet love is

Gonna save me, oh oh oh

Oh we got it easy

We oughta take it easy

In the City


Somewhere out there on that horizon

Out beyond the neon lights

I know there must be somethin' better

But there's nowhere else in sight

It's survival in the city

When you live from day to day

City streets don't have much pity

When you're down, that's where you'll stay

In the city, oh, oh.

In the city

I was born here in the city

With my back against the wall

Nothing grows, and life ain't very pretty

No one's there to catch you when you fall

Somewhere out on that horizon

Faraway from the neon sky

I know there must be somethin' better

And I can't stay another night

In the city, oh, oh.

In the city

Life in the Fast Lane


He was a hard-headed man he was brutally handsome

And she was terminally pretty

She held him up and he held for ransom

In the heart of the cold, cold city

He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude

They said he was ruthless said he was crude

They had one thing in common

They were good in bed

She said, 'faster, faster.

'the lights are turning red.'

Life in the fast lane

Surely make you lose your mind

Life in the fast lane

Are you with me so far?

Eager for action hot for the game

The calling attraction the drop of the name

They knew all the right people

They took all the right pills

They threw outrageous parties

They paid heavenly bills

There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face

She pretended not to notice she was caught up in the race

Out every evening until it was light

He was too tired to make it she was too tired to fight about it

Life in the fast lane

Surely make you lose your mind

Life in the fast lane

Life in the fast lane

Everything all the time

Life in the fast lane

Glowing and burning blinded by thirst

They didn't see the stop sign

Took a turn for the worse

She said, 'listen baby. you can hear the engine rev.

'we've up and down this highway, haven't seen a goddamn thing.'

He said, 'call the doctor. I think I'm gonna crash.'

'the doctor say he's coming but you gotta pay in cash.'

They were rushing down that freeway,

Messed around and got lost

They didn't care they were just dieing to get off and it was

Life in the fast lane

Surely make you lose your mind

Life in the fast lane

Life in the fast lane

Everything all the time

Life in the fast lane

Life in the fast lane

Life in the fast lane

Desperado


Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?

You been out ridin' fences for so long now

Oh, you're a hard one

I know that you got your reasons

These things that are pleasin' you

Can hurt you somehow

Don' you draw the queen of diamonds, boy

She'll beat you if she's able

You know the queen of heats is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things

Have been laid upon your table

But you only want the ones that you can't get

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no youger

Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home

And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin'

Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?

The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine

It's hard to tell the night time from the day

You're loosin' all your highs and lows

Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?

Come down from your fences, open the gate

It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you

You better let somebody love you, before it's too late
