Take It To The Limit

For my one-word prompt today, “limit,” I’m simply going to post one of my favorite Eagles’ songs, “Take It To The Limit.” It was written by Randy Meisner, Don Henley, and Glenn Frey and was released in 1975. Meisner was the lead singer on the record. I saw him sing it live in concert and he was incredible.

My favorite lines from the song are, “You can spend all your time making money / You can spend all your love making time.”

Anyway, here’s the song, followed by the lyrics.

All alone at the end of the evening
When the bright lights have faded to blue
I was thinking ’bout a woman who might have
Loved me and I never knew
You know I’ve always been a dreamer
(Spent my life running ’round)
And it’s so hard to change
(Can’t seem to settle down)
But the dreams I’ve seen lately
Keep on turning out and burning out
And turning out the same

So put me on a highway
And show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time

You can spend all your time making money
You can spend all your love making time
If it all fell to pieces tomorrow
Would you still be mine?

And when you’re looking for your freedom
(Nobody seems to care)
And you can’t find the door
(Can’t find it anywhere)
When there’s nothing to believe in
Still you’re coming back, you’re running back
You’re coming back for more

So put me on a highway
And show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit one more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
One more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
One more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
One more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
One more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
One more time

FOWC with Fandango — Limit

FOWCWelcome to October 1, 2018 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC).

Wow, it’s October already. Today is the start of my fifth month posting a daily word prompt. Hard to believe, isn’t it? Thanks to all of you who regularly participate. I will continue to try to provide you with a word each day that might help you to get your creative juices flowing.

This prompt is designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt. I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “limit.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
