"Already Gone" as written by and Jack/strandlund Tempchin....
Well, I heard some people talking just the other day
And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf
Well, let me tell you I've got some news for you
And you'll soon find out it's true
And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself
Coz I'm al-ready gone, and I'm fee-ling strong
I will si-ing this vict'ry song, woo-oo-oo, my my, woo-oo-oo
The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why
But I guess you felt like you had to set things right
Just remember this my girl when you look up in the sky
You can see the stars and still not see the light, that's right
And I'm-al-ready gone, and I'm fee-eeling strong
I will si-ing this vict'ry song, woo-oo-oo, my my, woo-oo-oo
Well, I know it wasn't you who held me down
Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free
So oftentimes it happens that we live our lives in chains
That we never even know we have the key
Me, I'm already gone, and I'm feeling strong
I will sing this vict'ry song, coz I'm already gone
Coz I'm al-ready gone, and I'm fee-eling strong
I will si-ing this vict'ry song, coz I'm al-ready gone
Yes, I'm already gone, already gone (awright, nighty night)
Already gone, already gone

    General Comment"So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key"

    Greatest lyric of all time! This applies to life in general, not just relationships. Each and every one of us holds the key to our own happiness. It's within all of us to choose our emotional state of mind. Heaven or Hell is within us all.

    General CommentToo bloody obvious. You hear it "thru' the grapevine" that your girl is going to leave you, well you won't give her the pleasure! Cos you're already gone.

    General CommentI love this song, because i can relate to the "You can't fire me, I quit! *flips the bird*" mentality hahaha plus the opening guitar is a great opening to On the Border

    General CommentGreat Song. You gotta love the synical, childish line of:
    "And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself"
    Its as if its a teasing throwaway line.

    General Comment"Well I know it wasn't you who held me down
    Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free
    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key".......One of the best song lyrics EVER!!!! So many people many breakup with some one or get heartbroken and think the world is coming to an end....They are soo positive about the situation and that only WE have the power to make ourselves happy...It's not someone or something that can set us free, its ourselves!!!

    The eagles rock my world...just started to get into them, and they have amazing harmonies, lyrics, and songwriting ability...I wish most of the music today could stop and realize what the "old rock" has to offer us: meaning!

    General CommentMost amazing thing ever:
    Walking out of high school, the day of graduation. iPod on at full volume, this song comes on. Three of my closest friends and I just start beltin' it out like there's no tomorrow, and wave goodbye to the principal and IB coordinator. Felt like I was on top of the world at that moment.

    Love the Eagles!
