"Peaceful Easy Feeling" as written by and Jack Tempchin....
I like the way sparkling earrings lay
Against your skin so brown
And I want to sleep with you in the desert night
With a million stars all around

I got a peaceful easy feelin'
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standin'
On the ground

And I found out a long time ago
What a woman can do to your soul
Aw but she can't take you any way
You don't already know how to go

I got a peaceful easy feelin'
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standin'
On the ground

I get this feelin' I may know you
As a lover and a friend
This voice keeps whisperin' in my other ear
Tells me I may never see you again

I get a peaceful easy feelin'
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standin'
Yes I'm already standin'
Yes I'm already standin'
On the ground

    General CommentThis song wasn't written by the Eagles - one of their few covers. It was written by some stereotypical C&W musician with a big cowboy hat - can't think of his name.
    A great sounding song.

    General Commentk dogg:

    This song isn't really romantic, although I wish it would be myself, lol.

    If you read the lyrics carefully -- its about a moment without strings attached. It's about not having any expectations or being at risk of getting hurt, yet the night is still magical to him.

    Song MeaningSome seem to have the general idea, but they are off a bit.

    I might be a new love or one that is getting stronger, but no matter what, it is while things are good and look to be getting better. The whole point of not being let down and already being on the ground, is that he isn't letting himself get high expectations or let himself get too close. Relationships in the past have hurt him so deeply that he doesn't let his guard down. He enjoys her, he thinks there might be a future, but the voice and past history tell him to stay unattached.

    It is a love song, yes, but it is more about protecting yourself from rushing in emotionally. You never know when it might turn, and you might not see them again. Those who have been hurt enough by strong relationships failing can make the most sense of these lyrics. You want to get close to someone again, to fall in love... but you don't let yourself so you don't get let down... you stay grounded.

    General CommentThis song breaks my heart...I remember lying in bed listening to it with my ex love, and now when I hear it or sing it in my head, I feel crushed thinking about the feelings it brought up inside me at one time when I was with him. Otherwise a great, great song.

    General CommentThis for me is the best Eagles song ever and they have recorded some classic songs ! I never tire of hearing this, it has everything, great lyrics, melody and guitar solo. The best song of the whole 70's. Period.
