Don Henley, Stan Lynch

Just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed.
You'd give anything to silence
Those voices ringin' 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
Who don't know how to be alone.
So we wander 'round this desert
Wind up following the wrong gods home.

But the flock cries out for another,
And we keep answering that bell.
One more starry-eyed Messiah
Meets a violent farewell...learn to be still

Now the flowers in your garden
They don't smell so sweet so sweet
Maybe you've forgotten the Heaven lyin' at your feet. . .
yeah yeah yeah

There are so many contradictions
In all these messages we send. (we keep askin')
How do I get outta here?
Where do I fit in?

And though the world is torn and shakin',
Even if your heart is breakin',
It's waiting for you to awaken
And someday you will...learn to be still.

Keep on runnin'
Just keep on runnin'. . . yeah.
