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-benz
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."

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

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 worl"d" 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

take it to the limit

all alone at the end of the evening
and the bright lights have faded to blue
i was thinking 'bout a woman who might have
loved me and i never knew
you know i've always been a dreamer
(spent my life running '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
your come'n 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

one of these nights

one of these nights
one of these crazy old nights
we're gonna find out
pretty mama
what turns on your lights
the full moon is calling
the fever is high
and the wicked wind whispers
and moans

you got your demons
you got desires
well, i got a few of my own

oo, someone to be kind to in
between the dark and the light
oo, coming right behind you
swear i'm gonna find you
one of these nights

one of these dreams
one of these lost and lonely dreams
we're gonna find one
one that really screams

i've been searching for the daughter
of the devil himself
i've been searching for an angel in white
i've been waiting for a woman who's a little
of both
and i can feel her but she's nowhere
in sight

oo, loneliness will blind you
in between the wrong and the right
oo, coming right behind you
swear i'm gonna find you
one of these nights

one of these nights
in between the dark and the light
coming right behind you
swear i'm gonna find you
get 'ya baby one of these nights
one of these nights
one of these nights
i can feel it
i can feel it
one of these nights
coming right behind you
swear i'm gonna find you now
one of these nights..etc...

lyin' eyes

city girls just seem to find out early
how to open doors with just a smile
a rich old man
and 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 who's feelin' down
but he knows where she's goin' as she's leavin'
she is headed for the cheatin' side of town

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 he makes her feel the way she used to feel

she rushes to his arms; they fall together
she whispers that it's only for awhile
she swears that soon she'll be comin' back forever
she pulls away and leaves him with a smile

you can't hide your lyin' eyes
and your smile is a thin disguise
i thought by now you'd realize
there ain't now way to hide your lyin' eyes

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 new life didn't change things?
you're still the same old girl you used to be

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
there ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes
honey, you can't hide your lyin' eyes

peaceful easy feeling

i like the way your sparkling earrings lay
against your skin,so brown
and i wanna sleep with you
in the desert tonight
with a billion stars all around
'cause i gotta peaceful easy feeling
and i know you won't let me down
'cause i'm already standing on the ground
and i found out a long time ago
what a woman can do to your soul
ah, but she can't take you anyway
you don't already know how to go
and i gotta peaceful, easy feeling
and i know you won't let me down
'cause i'm already standing on the ground
i get this feeling i may know you
as a lover and a friend
but this voice keeps whispering
in my other ear, tells me
i may never see you again
'cause i get a peaceful, easy feeling
and i know you won't let me down
'cause i'm already standing on the ground
'cause i'm already standing...
on the ground
oooo

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

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
dunno, baby, i can't tell you why
i can't tell you why
i can't tell you why

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
will hurt you somehow

don't you try 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 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 losin' 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
(let sombody love you)
you better let somebody love you
before it's too late
