Broken all by myself say/
Women don't pay don't mind/
Forgotten like a hotel Bible/
Phone keeps ringing and I'm trying to keep my mind off it/
And if you walk by my window/
I won't open u the blinds to watch you/
Walk like you didn't know I was inside still praying for the day this be easy/
Heard you doing fine on the outside/
Smelling like a fresh picked rose/
Me I'm still moth balls and lost smiles, down on the pavement praying trying to make some sense of it/
And if you walked by my body, would you stop to breathe?/
Or would you walk by never knowing that I'm cigarette smoke floating in the glow of the TV/

What would you expect from me?/
I'm right back where I started see/
I never lost that first touch dreaming of that one first feeling that convinced me you were leaving/
How would you expect to breathe?/
With all of this around you say/
Now I'm in this old empty room tracing back my steps to the place where I found you/

Ring twice never come in say/
People don't change like time/
I'm sticky like the front door's deadbolt/
The side door exit wish I coulda learned to let go/
And if I came knocking on Sunday/Would you wear your white dress for me?/
Or would you watch love through the peephole?/
Talk through the chain blindfolded so that you never see me/
I heard you like picking at wounds girl/
Open up and let this one bleed/
I never thought that you would be the scalpel to open up my doubtfuls and leave me in the back seat/
And if I pulled love from the attic, would you wipe the dust off your dreams?/
Or would you buy back what you gave up, open up fact to your nature and admit you are human?/

What would you expect from me?/
I'm right back where I started see/
I never lost that first touch dreaming of that one first feeling that convinced me you were leaving/
How would you expect to breathe?/
With all of this around you say/
Now I'm in this old empty room tracing back my steps to the place where I found you/

Leaving.../
Leaving.../
Leaving.../
Leaving.../


Come and knock on the door/
At heartbreak hotel/
Waking up on the floor/
At heartbreak hotel/
Come and knock on the door/
At heartbreak...wait/
Maybe I don't belong/
No baby I don't belong here
