"Heart Hotels" as written by and Dan Fogelberg....
Well there's too many windows in this old hotel
And rooms filled with reckless pride
And the walls have grown sturdy and the halls have worn well
But there is nobody living inside, nobody living inside

Gonna pull in the shutters on this heart of mine
Roll up the carpets and pull in the blinds
And retreat to the chambers that I left behind
In hopes there's still may be love left to find, still may be love left to find

Seek inspiration in daily affairs
Now you soul is improper and requires repairs
And the voices you hear at the top of the stairs
Are only echoes of unanswered prayers, echoes of unanswered prayers

Well there's too many windows in this old hotel
And rooms filled with reckless pride
And the walls have grown sturdy and the halls have worn well
But there is nobody living inside, nobody living inside

    General CommentThe song or at least part of it means that nothing is forever in life. Even our memories will come to pass.

    General CommentObviously he is very lonely, the song itself sounds like a lonely person reaching out. Not so complicated to figure this song out. He had too much price to look within himself and often pushed other people away. Only now they acknowledge mistakes hoping it is not too late to express love and receive love from those still around who he pushed away.

    My OpinionFor anyone who has heard this song, the best part is the melody. It alternates between a classical-sounding composition with bold strings and piano to smooth jazz. The lyrics indicate a person who has lived their life under the expectation love would come to them without having to reciprocate. The lines with "reckless pride" and "shutters on this heart of mine" tell the key part of this story. I've never really paid much attention to the lyrics of this song, only because the melody is so stunning. It's one of those that can get stuck in your head for days at a time.
