Met Him in a Motel Room

Album: PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit (2014)
  • She met him in a motel room
    In the shady part of town
    With a set of satin sheets pulled back
    And the window shades pulled down
    Like a cotton dress she let her fears
    Fall down to the ground
    With a do not disturb sign on the door
    She whispered, I've never done this before

    Some people meet him in a church
    At a service on Sunday
    As the preacher says the perfect words
    They bow their heads to pray
    And the choir sings a sweet forgiveness tune
    She met him in a motel room

    With a bottle full of sleeping pills
    And a long, long list of sins
    She'd already planned on checking out
    Before she checked in
    She was gonna leave a goodbye note
    Just needed paper and a pen
    And with the vacancy light blinking red
    She found that bible in the drawer
    Beside the bed

    Some people meet him in a church
    At a service on Sunday
    As the preacher says the perfect words
    They bow their heads to pray
    And the choir sings a sweet forgiveness tune
    She met him in a motel room
    She met him in a motel room

    Some people meet him in a church
    At a service on Sunday
    As the preacher says the perfect words
    They bow their heads to pray
    No choir sang a sweet forgiveness tune
    No that's no the way
    That they were introduced
    She met him in a motel room
    She met him in a motel room Writer/s: JAMIE TEACHENOR, RORY LEE
