“Hotel California Lyrics”

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


My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim


I had to stop for the night




There she stood in the doorway


I heard the mission bell


And I was thinking to myself


‘This could be heaven or this could be Hell’


Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way


There were voices down the corridor,


I 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 Bends


She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that 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 nineteen sixty-nine’


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


They livin’ it up at the Hotel California


What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise), bring your alibis




Mirrors on the ceiling,


The pink champagne on ice


And she said, we are all just prisoners here, of our own device


And in the master’s chambers


They gathered for the feast


They 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!
