Don Henley – Shangri-La lyrics
Every day's a new day
That's what I've been told
Try to hold your head high
The world runs hot and cold

It's hard to follow footprints
In the shifting sand
Another thirsty rider
Behind the caravan

You had no idea
Just what was waiting out there
You never thought you'd carry the weight
Of the world
On your pretty blond hair

This ain't no Shangri-La
To you, no Shangri-La
This ain't no Shangri-La
Nobody knows no Shangri-La

Hey! There's a whole lotta people
Wonderin' who you are
They think you walk without a care in the world
But they've been wrong so far

This ain't no Shangri-La
To you, no Shangri-La
This ain't no Shangri-La
Nobody knows no Shangri-La

No one can decide
What we all must outrun
Who's gonna carry the weight of the world
Until we learn to stop
And do what must be done?

This ain't no Shangri-La
To you, no Shangri-La
This ain't no Shangri-La
Nobody Knows no Shangri-La
