Story

Since my early days in radio in the 70s, I've loved the music of the Eagles. This song became part of their legend in the 90s after the band came back together - it's one of my favorite love songs. I slowed the tempo from the original just a bit, kept the acoustic guitar, bass & rhythm close to the original, and added strings, flute, bells & synth pad. Enjoy! -Rick

Lyrics

LOVE WILL KEEP US ALIVE

I was standing
All alone against the world outside
You were searching
For a place to hide

Lost and lonely
Now you've given me the will to survive
When we're hungry, love will keep us alive

Don't you worry
Sometimes you've just gotta let it ride
The world is changing
Right before your eyes
Now I've found you
There's no more emptiness inside
When we're hungry, love will keep us alive

I would die for you
Climb the highest mountain
Baby, there's nothing I wouldn't do

I was standing
All alone against the world outside
You were searching
For a place to hide
Lost and lonely
Now you've given me the will to survive
When we're hungry, love will keep us alive
When we're hungry, love will keep us alive
When we're hungry, love will keep us alive
