TAKE IT EASY

 

Well, I'm a-runnin' down the road tryin' to loosen my load,  
I've got seven women on my mind,  
four that wanna own me, two that wannna 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-standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona  
and such a fine sight to see,  
it's a girl, my Lord, in a flat bed 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 a-runnin' down the road tryin' 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 sounds of your own wheels make you crazy.  
Come on, baby, don't say maybe,  
gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me.  
 
 
Oh, we got it easy,  
we ought to take it easy.

 

 

 WITCHY WOMAN

 

Raven hair and ruby lips,  
sparks fly from her finger tips,  
echoed voices in the night.  
She's a restless spirit on an endless flight.  
 
CHORUS..  
 
Woohoo, witchy woman, see how high she flies.  
Woohoo, witchy woman, she got the moon in her eyes.  
 
She held me spellbound in the night,  
dancing shadows and firelight,  
crazy laughter in another room  
and she drove herself to madness with a silver spoon.  
 
CHORUS  
 
I know you want to love her, but let me tell you, brother,  
she's been sleepin' in the devil's bed.  
There's some rumors goin' 'round, someone's underground,  
she can rock you in the night, until your skin turn red.  
 
CHORUS

 

 

 

 

Desperado

Eagles Lyrics

 

 

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't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy,  
she'll beat you if she's able,  
you know the queen of hearts 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 younger,  
your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home.  
And freedom, oh, freedom, well, that's just some people talkin',  
your prison is walkin' 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 nighttime from the day.  
You're losin' all your highs and lows.  
Ain't it funny how the feelin' 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,  
you better let somebody love you  
before it's too late.

 

 

 

Tequila sunrise

Eagles Lyrics

 

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,  
 
 
Every 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 fram

 

 

 

 

The best of my love

 

Every night I'm lyin' in bed, holdin' you close in my dreams;  
thinkin' about all the things that we said and comin' apart at the seams  
We try to talk it over but the words come out too rough;  
I know you were tryin' to give me the best of your love.  
 
Beautiful faces and loud empty places, look at the way that we live;  
wastin' our time on cheap talk and wine left us so little to give.  
That same old crowd was like a cold dark cloud that we could never rise above;  
but here in my heart I give you the best of my love.  
 
Oh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love,  
oh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love.  
 
I'm goin' back in time and it's a sweet dream;  
it was a quiet night and I would be all right if I could go on sleeping  
 
But every mornin' I wake up and worry what's gonna happen today;  
you see it your way, and I see it mine,  
but we both see it slippin' away.  
 
You know we always had each other, baby,  
I guess that wasn't enough; oh,  
but here in my heart I give you the best of my love.  
 
Oh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love;  
oh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love;  
oh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love.

 

 

 

 

 Lying eyes

 

City girls just seem to find out early  
how to open doors with just a smile.  
A rich old man, she won't have to worry,  
she'll dress up all in lace, and go in style.  
 
Late at night a big old house gets lonely,  
I guess every form of refuge has its price.  
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only  
given to a man with hands as cold as ice.  
 
So she tells him she must go out for the evening  
to comfort an old friend, he's feeling down.  
But he knows where she's going as she's leaving,  
she is headed for the cheatin' side of town.  
 
CHORUS: You can't hide your lyin' eyes  
and your smile is a thin disguise.  
I thought by now you'd realize  
there ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes.  
 
On the other side of town a boy is waiting  
with fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal.  
She drives on through the night anticipating,  
'Cause it makes her feel the way she used to feel.  
 
She rushes to his arms, they fall together,  
she whispers that it's only for a while.  
She swears that soon she'll be coming back for ever,  
she pulls away and leaves him with a smile.  
 
CHORUS  
 
She gets up and pours herself a strong one  
and stares out at the stars up in the sky,  
another night, it's gonna be a long one,  
she draws the shade and hangs her head to cry.  
 
She wonders how it ever got this crazy,  
she thinks about a boy she knew in school.  
Did she get tired, or did she just get lazy?  
She's so far gone she feels just like a fool.  
 
My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things,  
you set it up so well, so carefully.  
Ain't it funny how your life didn't change things,  
you're still the same old girl you used to be.  
 
CHORUS  
 
There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes.  
Funny, you can't hide your lyin' eyes.

 

 

Take it to the limit

 

All alone at the end of the evening  
and the bright lights have faded to blue,  
I was thinking about a woman who might have loved me,  
and I never knew.  
 
You know. I've always been a dreamer,  
spent my life runnin' 'round,  
and it's so hard to change,  
can't seem to settle down,  
but the dreams I've seen lately  
keep on turning out and burning out and turning out the same.  
 
So put me on a highway and show me a sign,  
and take it,to the limit one more time.  
 
You can spend all your time making money,  
you can spend all your love making time.  
If it all fell to pieces tomorrow, would you still be mine?  
 
And when you're looking for your freedom,  
nobody seems to care,  
and you can't find the door,  
can't find it anywhere.  
When there's nothing to believe in,  
still you're coming back, you're running back, you're coming back for more.  
 
So put me on a highway  
and show me a sign,  
and take it to the limit one more time.  
 
Take it to the limit, take it to the limit, take it to the limit one more time.  
Take it to the limit, take it to the limit, take it to the limit one more time.  
Take it to the limit, take it to the limit, take it to the limit one more time..  
Take it to the limit, take it to the limit, take it to the limit one more time..

 

 

 

 

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 thinkin' 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 place) Such a lovely face  
Plenty of room at the Hotel California  
Any time of year (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 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 place) Such a lovely face  
They livin' it up at the Hotel California  
What a nice surprise (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 masters chambers They gathered for the feast  
They 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 check out anytime you like but you can never leave."
