EAGLES


Life In The Fast Lane Lyrics

He was a hard-headed man, he was brutally handsome
And she was terminally pretty
She held him up and he held her for ransom
In the heart of the cold, cold city

He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude
They said he was ruthless, said he was crude
They had one thing in common they were good in bed
She'd say, "Faster, faster, the lights are turnin' red"

Life in the fast lane, surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane

Are you with me so far?

Eager for action, hot for the game
The coming attraction, the drop of a name
They knew all the right people, they took all the right pills
They threw outrageous parties, they paid heavily bills

There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face
She pretended not to notice, she was caught up in the race
Out every evening until it was light
He was too tired to make it, she was too tired to fight about it

Life in the fast lane, surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane, everything all the time
Life in the fast lane

Glowin' and burnin', blinded by thirst
They didn't see the stop sign, took a turn for the worst
She said, "Listen baby, you can hear the engine ring
We've been up and down this highway, haven't seen a goddamn thing"

He said, "Call the doctor, I think I'm gonna crash"
"The doctor say he's comin' but you gotta pay in cash"
They were rushin' down that freeway, messed around and got lost
They didn't care, they were just dyin' to get off and it was

Life in the fast lane, surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane, everything all the time
Life in the fast lane

Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane

This song takes on a whole new meaning since I found out it was written about Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, considering she dated two of the song writers.
