Eagles – Learn To Be Still – Video and Lyrics

This is a fantastic song that I have not heard in a while, about a topic that I have been thinking about quite a bit recently. Most already wealthy people I know, are still trying very very hard to become even more wealthy,  they are never satisfied with what they have, and never will be, because they move their finish line forward as they progress, never allowing themselves to win.

This song’s philosophy seems like an important key to being happy, Enjoy.

 

Learn To Be Still – The Eagles

 

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

There are so many contradictions
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’

  1. I love the Eagles and I love this song. There is so much truth to it. Like I always say, some people make enough and some people don’t, and it has nothing to do with the size of their paycheck. It’s taken me years to re-prioritize and figure out what makes me truly happy. Money helps, to be sure, but it’s far from the entire answer. You do need to stop and just enjoy.

  2. Good to see you again Janene!

    Definitely important to take the time to enjoy what you have. Thanks for the share.
