Live and sin
Ten years ago on this day my heart was yearning
I promised I would never, ever be returning
Where my baby broke my heart and left me yearning

As we walked into the room
There were faces staring, glaring, tearing through me
Someone said "Welcome to your doom"
Then they smiled with eyes that looked as if they knew me
This is scaring me

We walked up the stairs still concealing gloom
There were two girls sitting in my room
She walked up to my face
And said "This is the place"
You said "Meet you right here at noon"

This is (Heartbreak hotel)
Welcome to (Heartbreak hotel)
So this is (Heartbreak hotel)
This place is (Heartbreak hotel)

Hope is dead
She thought that I had cheated for another lover
I turn my back to see that I am undercover
Now I can't convince this girl there ain't no other

Someone's evil to hurt my soul
Every smile's a trial thought in beguile to hurt me
This is scaring me
Then the man next door had told
She's been here in tears for fifteen years
This is scaring me

We came to this place where the vicious dwell
And found that wicked women run this strange hotel
There was Sefra and Sue
Every girl that I knew
And my baby said love is through

This is (Heartbreak hotel)
Welcome to (Heartbreak hotel)
So evil (Heartbreak hotel)
This place is (Heartbreak hotel)
Someone's takin' my heart (Heartbreak hotel)
This is heartbreak hotel (Heartbreak hotel)
Ten years ago today (Heartbreak hotel)
This is heartbreak hotel (Heartbreak hotel)
Someone's takin' my heart (Heartbreak hotel)
This is heartbreak hotel (Heartbreak hotel)
Ten years ago today (Heartbreak hotel)
Hurtin' my heart (Heartbreak hotel)
You break my baby's heart (Heartbreak hotel)
This is heartbreak hotel (Heartbreak hotel)
Just what you do to me
