Life in the Fast Lane - The Eagles/Joe Walsh

Life in the Fast Lane
He was a hard headed man
He was brutally handsome now, 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, they 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 makes you lose your mind,
Life in the fast lane, huh
Are you with me so far

Eager for action and 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 heavenly 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 makes you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane, huh
Life in the fast lane, everything all the time
Life in the fast lane, huh

Blowin' 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 goddam thing"
He said, "Call the doctor. I think I'm gonna crash"
"The doctor says he's comin', but you gotta pay him in cash"
They went 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 makes you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane, huh
Life in the fast lane, everything all the time
Life in the fast lane, huh

Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
