Track Name: Hotel Life
HOTEL LIFE
By David Poe.
©2006 Charming Martyr Music (BMI.)

THERE’S A ROBOT
PLAYING PIANO
THINKS THAT YOU’RE MY WIFE
COMPLIMENTARY
NEWS OF THE WORLD
YOU CAN DRINK WHILE I READ THE TIMES
THE HOTEL LIFE IS OVERRATED
BUT OH MY GOD IT’S GOOD

WHEN YOU’RE LAUGHING
BUT DON’T SAY A WORD NOW
‘CAUSE THEY’VE HEARD YOUR VOICE BEFORE
THEY WILL REMEMBER
EVEN IF YOU DON’T
A SOUND CAME FROM BEHIND THE DOOR
THOUGH YOUR COMPANY’S OVERRATED
OH MY GOD IT’S GOOD
OH MY GOD IT’S GOOD

SHE GETS HER PAY
SITTING ON A GOLDEN PILLOW
IN THE NIGHTCLUB FOYER
HER EYES WERE BLUE AND HER HAIR WAS GREEN
SHE JUST RADIATES POSSIBILITY
SWEET NICOTINE AND THE STEAK TARTAR
WE MADE THE SCENE LIKE AN OPERA
AND WE FELL IN LOVE SOMETIME BETWEEN
THE LIMOUSINE AND THE MINI-BAR
AND LOVE IS OVER-RATED
BUT OH MY GOD IT’S GOOD
OH MY GOD IT’S GOOD

SO DON’T BE NERVOUS
RING THE ROOM SERVICE
AND I’LL CALL YOU UNTIL YOU FIND YOUR PHONE
IT’S A SUNDAY
YES I KNOW IT’S RAINING
YOU CAN EAT WHAT YOU WANT AND GO HOME
Track Name: Love's A Sinner (live)
WILL I GO TO HEAVEN WHEN I DIE?
WILL I BE FORGIVEN FOR LIVING MY LIFE
THE WAY I WANT TO
THE WAY I WANTED TO?

WILL I GO TO HEAVEN IN THE END?
WILL I WALK INTO THE LIGHT AGAIN,
SEE WHO I WAS,
WHO I COULD HAVE BEEN?

I WANT TO DRINK THE WINE
LORD KNOWS I CAN KILL THE TIME
ME AND A FRIEND OF MINE
SHE LETS ME IN
AND LOVES A SINNER
HATES THE SIN

BUT WILL I GO TO HEAVEN WHEN I DIE?
WILL I BE FORGIVEN FOR MY LIFE,
THE WRONGS I HAVE DONE
TO EVERYONE I LOVED?
Track Name: Childbearing (live)
On a rainy street, I caught this scene:
Pretty little girl splashing puddles with her feet.
She was singing a song, so headstrong,
Looked like her mom who stood nearby.
Then she started to cry,
For no reason at all -
Or maybe for something she'd already lost -
And suddenly I knew the reason why
Girls will cry, like you do....

Just then a little boy,
Dressed up in corduroy,
He stopped to stare at that little girl there.
They were around the same age,
Mothers wore the same shoes,
Girl's tears turn to rage now the boy was crying too.
Looking over my shoulder,
Because I've been there before.
Now I'm feeling older and I don't look anymore.

That little girl is going to break that little boy's heart someday.
That little girl is going to break that little boy.
Someday,
Someday.

Man and wife, old friends of mine,
Asked me for a light outside the show last night.
She said 'Lets get high, like old times,'
She twisted a J but then he walked away.
She said 'I love him still,'
Like she needed to explain.
But when he reappeared he said “We can't stay.
‘Cause the babysitter's home,
and now it's getting late,
I get tested at my job and I don't approve anyway.'

That little girl is going to break that little boy's heart someday.
That little girl is going to break that little boy.
Someday,
Someday.

If you and me decide to be a child-bearing family,
Would you marry me,
Have a home,
Plant the tree, paint the nursery?
In a couple of years (or maybe ten)
Honey you know I can't foresee when.
We might settle down,
In some small town,
And leave behind this life.

People smile at a weeping child,
Because you know their sadness is going to pass,
And the years will bring,
Some real thing to cry about.

That little girl is going to break that little boy's heart someday.
That little girl is going to break that little boy's heart someday.
That little boy is going to break that little girl.
Someday
Someday
Someday
Someday
Someday
Someday....
