This song was first performed by Timothy B. Schmit of Eagles in 1994. I loved his clear soothing voice and soulful rendition. I do not know why the lyrics were put together the way they were. Much was happening in 1994. The world was changing, right before his eyes. Kremlin Accords. Internet in China. Rwandan Genocide. Nelson Mandel Win. WWW Consortium. End of MS-DOS. Amazon. First Smartphone. Emotions of musicians are influenced by the societal fabric that they are surrounded by.
These lines make me evaluate the current situation:
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
They made me think about how interconnected we are.
