Learn To Be Still
Eagles Lyrics


It's just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed
You'd give anything to silence
Those voices ringing 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
We don't know how to be alone
So we wander 'round this desert
And wind up following the wrong gods home
But the flock cries out for another
And they keep answering that bell
And one more starry-eyed messiah
Meets a violent farewell-
Learn to be still
Learn to be still

Now the flowers in your garden
They don't smell so sweet
Maybe you've forgotten
The heaven lying at your feet

There are so many contradictions
In all these messages we send
(We keep asking)
How do I get out of here
Where do I fit in?
Though the world is torn and shaken
Even if your heart is breakin'
It's waiting for you to awaken
And someday you will-
Learn to be still
Learn to be still

You just keep on runnin'
Keep on runnin'

Just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed
Give anything to silence
Those voices ringing 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
We 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 they keep answering that bell
One more starry-eyed Messiah
Meets a violent farewell
Learn to be still

Learn to be still

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

There are so many contradictions
In all these messages we send
Keep asking
How do I get outta here?
Where do I fit in?

Though the world is torn and shaken
Even if your heart is breakin'
It's waiting for you to awaken
Someday you will
Learn to be still

Learn to be still

Just keep on runnin'
Keep on runnin'
Oh, oh yeah, mm, mm
Just keep on runnin'

This is a song for anyone that's hurting or afraid or going through surgery or cancer. Learn to be still. God has you're back Jeremiah 28 . 11.

my mom listened to this song constantly throughout her cancer even when she was doing chemo it is what got her through it all and sadly she passed. her one request was for this song to be played at her funeral in the church her family helped build and they said NO. most of my entire family had already walked away from the church years before but this caused the rest to walk away.

This was my mom's favorite song when she was going through chemo. She had 3 types of cancer over 2 years and the last one got her. The song got her through so much and it now gets me through so much.

🎶 Learn To Be Still 🎵 was just the perfect song for me to hear these last few moments. Great song & thank you to the Eagles for performing it

Andrew coelho

This was one of my dad's favorite songs. He fought cancer for a year before it took him. Really hits home :(
