Eagles - 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!'
