Heartbreak Hotel

This is the heartbreak hotel (9x)

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 do this to me

(sung by Faith Evans)
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:

Chorus:
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 (baby)
I thought that you were someone
who would do me right
Until you play with my emotions
and you made me cry
What you do to me (why d'you do it)
Can't take what you did to me

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

(sung by Kelly Price)
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:

Chorus

You didn't have to do it to me baby!

Heartbreak Hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel (9x)
(This is the Heartbreak)
(Welcome to the Heartbreak)
(Why d'you do it)

Chorus, ad lib

I really wanted baby
Can't take it no more
I wanted your love
Do me baby, do me right
Why did you do me that way
I aint goin to take it no more
Everthing you said was a lie
Don't lie to me (fade out)

Ecrit par C. Schack, K.Karlin & T.Savage
