Lyrics

Hotel Room

Words and Music by Karl Obermeyer

Lightin’ up in the hotel room Just before you go to sleep
Got to be gone tomorrow or you’re charged for another week
So I ask where you’re headed to, out of state or down the street
Do you need a change of atmosphere or are you running from your own feet?

But you never spoke, no you never spoke at all

I can understand frustration, I can sympathize with your needs
I could tell you about all the times I’ve yearned to be released
But I know that my stories wont heal wounds that run so deep
But what else can I offer from a phone booth on Seventh Street

And you never spoke, no you never spoke at all

Somewhere out there, there's an answer to your questions
Somewhere out there, there's a girl about to fall
Needs an answer to recall what she's doing here at all, at all

Shootin’ up in the hotel room
Got to keep it in your veins now or withdrawal will leave you weak
I know where you found it from, out of state or down the street
Do you need a change of atmosphere or are you running from your own feet?
