  • This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel

    You said you'd be here by nine
    Instead you took your time
    You didn't think to call me boy
    Here I sit trying not to cry
    Asking myself why
    You'd do this to me

    Since you're not around for me to tell you baby, face to face
    I'm writing you this letter, and this is what I have to say:

    All I really wanted was some of your time
    Instead you told me lies
    When someone else was on your mind
    What you do to me
    Look what you did to me
    I thought that you were someone who would do me right
    Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry
    What you do to me
    Can't take what you did to me

    Now I see that you've been doing wrong
    You played me all along
    And made a fool of me, baby
    You got it all wrong to think that I wouldn't find out
    That you were cheating on me
    How could you do it to me

    Since you're not around for me to tell you baby, face to face
    I'm writing you this letter, and this is what I have to say:

    All I really wanted was some of your time
    Instead you told me lies
    When someone else was on your mind
    What you do to me
    Look what you did to me
    I thought that you were someone who would do me right
    Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry
    What you do to me
    Can't take what you did to me

    Heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel
    This is the heartbreak hotel

    All I really wanted was some of your time
    Instead you told me lies
    When someone else was on your mind
    What you do to me
    Look what you did to me
    I thought that you were someone who would do me right
    Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry
    What you do to me
    Can't take what you did to me

    All I really wanted was some of your time
    Instead you told me lies
    When someone else was on your mind
    What you do to me
    Look what you did to me
    I thought that you were someone who would do me right
    Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry
    What you do to me
    Can't take what you did to me

    I ain't gonna, I ain't gonna take it no more
    I ain't gonna take it no more
    I ain't gonna take it no more

    Everything that you said was a lie
    Don't lie to me
    Tell me what it is and I will be alrightWriter/s: Carsten Soulshock Schack, Kenneth Karlin, Tamara Savage
