Hotel California - Lyrics

For the record we never broke up we just took a 14 year vacation
On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
Head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
Had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway
Heard the mission bell
I was thinking to myself this could be heaven or this could be hell
Then she lit up a candle
She showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
Thought I heard them say
Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
(such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year
(any time of year)
You can find it here
Her mind is Tiffany twisted
She got the Mercedes Benz, uh
She got a lot of pretty-pretty boys she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget
So I called up the captain
Please bring me my wine
He said
We haven't had that spirit here since 1969
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say
Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
(such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise
(what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis...
Mirrors on the ceiling
Pink champagne on ice
And she said
We are all just prisoners here of our own device
In the master's chambers they gathered for the feast
Stab it with their steely knives but they just can't kill the beast
Last thing I remember I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
Relax said the night man we are programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave
Thank you
Thank you
