The Key

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 

 

from Already Gone by the Eagles,

songwriters Jack Tempchin & Robert Arnold Strandlund

 

It’s funny how many times we can hear something and not really hear it.  When I heard these lyrics today (for the fifty-blue-millionth time), it struck me how true they were.  It reminded me that often the only thing keeping us from realizing our dreams is the six inches between our ears.
