When your headlights cut across my wall
Yeah, I thought it might be you
Looking for a place to fall
Talking sweet, thinking small

Seeking out convenient arms
Yeah and resting for a while
Someone to keep you safe and warm
While you ride out your latest storm

Oh my heart's not a hotel
You can check in and out of
It's not a temporary shelter
It's a home for someone's love

Don't just come here when you're lonely
Knowing full an' well you won't stay
'Cause I don't have the strength tonight
To turn you away

Oh don't let the dawn find me asleep
On a pillow of regret
Take all my dreams just leave the key
And let me keep my dignity

'Cause my heart's not a hotel
You can check in and out of
It's not a temporary shelter
It's a home for someone's love

Don't just come here when you're lonely
Knowing full an' well you won't stay
'Cause I don't have the strength tonight
To turn you away

No, don't come here when you're lonely
Knowing full an' well you won't stay
'Cause I don't have the strength tonight
To turn you away

I don't have the strength tonight
To turn you away
