(Don Henley - Glenn Frey - Randy Meisner)

All alone at the end of the evening
And the bright lights have faded to blue
I was thinkin' about a woman
Who might have loved me and I never knew.

You know I've always been a dreamer
Spent my life running 'round
And it's so hard to change
Can't seem to settle down.

But the dreams I've seen lately
Keep on turnin' out and burnin' out and turnin' out the same
So put me on a highway and show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time.

--- Instrumental ---

You can spend all your time making love
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
More freedom when nobody seems to care
And you can't find the door
Well, you can't find it anywhere.
When there's nothin' to believe in.

Still you're coming back you're running back
You're coming back for more
So put me on the highway and show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time.

Take it to the limi,t take it to the limit
Take it to the limit one more time...
