LES 33; Beluister the Eagles

The Eagles - Lyin' Eyes

The Eagles - The Last Resort

City girl just seems 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, the 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 feeling down
but he knows where she's going as she's leaving
she's 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 a while
she swears that soon she'll be comin' back forever
she goes 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 no 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
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 men's way, 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 in the name of God
And you can see them there on Sunday morning
Stand up and sing about what it's like up there
They called it paradise, I don't know why
You call some place paradise - kiss it goodbye
