Eagles – Hotel California

One of my all time favorites is the ‘Hotel California’ song by Eagles. How many ever times I hear it, I never get bored! Its amazing!

The lyrics of the song is below and you can download the Hotel California MP3 from the BOX.net widget at the right bottom of this page. Enjoy! 🙂

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
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’
‘Many room at the Hotel California’
‘Any time of year’ (any time of year)
‘You can find it here’

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted,
She’s got the Mercedes Benz
She’s 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’
They living 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’
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 programed to receive’
‘You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave’
