A Room at the
Heartbreak Hotel

Song by U2,
Lyrics from Scott A. Yanoff

(These lyrics differ from the official
 version, but I like them better.)

From where I stand
I can see through you
And well ya said pretty woman
“I know it got to you”

I see the stars in your eyes
I want the truth but you want the lies
I dream you come, I run to you
You gave your life for rock ‘n roll a-ha

Stay, we’re on the dark side of love
You’ve got everything you wanted
But what you needed you gave away
For primitive love

And we’re riding the mystery train
For primitive love
A room at the heart
Hearbreak hotel
A room at the heartbreak
Heartbreak hotel
A room at the heartbreak
Heartbreak hotel

(Rest of song continues as above)

You say it’s love, it’s not the money
You let them suck your life out
   like honey
Full of tricks
You’re on the street
Selling your kisses so very sweet

(I’m back.  And I’m gonna make it
I’m gonna make it
Oh the prize is to hold you back)

A primitive love
And we’re riding the mystery train
A primitive love
A room at the heart
Heartbreak hotel.

(Guitar fills, etc.)
