Zoe Muth & The Lost High Rollers – Starlight Hotel lyrics

If they say he never worked hard enough
I'll tell them he had something else on his mind
Always looking for love or whatever came close enough
To get him through the night
He found himself far from home
And it was not hard to get other folks to leave him
I was naпve and young
With only the words of the barstool bards to base my
Conclusions on
And I believed him when he said
"Don't put your faith in the love of any one man"

Now he's down there
Living in the Starlight Hotel
He leaves his blinds open at night
So all the world can tell
No amount of joy and love in our younger days
Can make up for that one last lost love
That would not stay

My heart is like my mind
It's the jealous and the aching kind
Neither one knows what the other should do
I can write these rhymes
Tell you stories tell you lies
Somehow they always seem to come true
And I stumbled into you
You turned my heart a lighter shade of blue
When you are gone just a little too long
My mind wanders back to all the loves that have gone

I see the light around the moon
The cold green gardens about to bloom
This may all be over far too soon
Can we help each other out?
Can we help each other out?

If they say you never worked hard enough
Tell them you had something else on your mind.
