"Driving With Your Eyes Closed"

As you might have guessed by now, I'm a sucker for an interesting lyric. Don Henley doesn't often deviate from Worthy and Important Global Statements, but on this track he's more relaxed. It's a spare, stripped-down song, in which he drops in a wonderful couplet: "Some guys were born to Rimbaud/Some guys breathe Baudelaire" among other observations.
