Take it to the Limit – The Eagles #Song Lyric Sunday

Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday 11/04/18

The theme for today is “take/taken”

I immediately thought of The Eagles, “Take it to the Limit.” The lyrics, sung by Randy Meisner, and music evoke a feeling of freedom and dreaming with no limits. I too have always been a dreamer and forever will be. There were many if not countless times that I would hop in my car, pretend it was an airplane and head to the mountains. Usually Lake Tahoe. Sometimes I would go down south to the desert. And this song was top on my playlist.

This YouTube Video seems to be a Japanese Airlines commercial, however it is entirely a video of soaring through the clouds. The only Eagles videos were live concerts or an album cover. Enjoy the flight!

RIP Glenn Frey Singer Song Writer January 18, 2016.

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

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

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

Songwriters: Randy Meisner/ Don Henley / Glenn Frey
