"This Place Hotel (Heartbreak Hotel)" as written by and Michael Jackson....
Live and sin
Ten years ago on this day, my heart was yearning
I promised I would never ever be returning
Where my baby broke my heart and left me yearning

As we walked into the room, there were faces
Staring, glaring, tearing through me
Someone said welcome to your doom
Then they smiled with eyes that looked as if they knew me
This is scaring me

We walked up the stairs still concealing gloom
There were two girls sitting in My room
She walked up to my face
And said this is the place
You said meet you right here at noon

Heartbreak hotel
Heartbreak hotel
Heartbreak hotel
Heartbreak hotel

Hope is dead
She thought that I had cheated for another lover
I turn my back to see that I am undercover
Now I can`t convince this girl there ain`t no other

Someone`s evil to hurt my soul
Every smile`s trial thought in beguile
To hurt me
Then the man next door had told
He`s been here in tears for fifteen years
This is scaring me

We came to this place, where the vicious dwell
And found that wicked women run this strange hotel
There was Sefra and Sue,
Every girl that I knew
And my baby said love is through

Heartbreak hotel
Heartbreak hotel
Heartbreak hotel
Heartbreak hotel

    General CommentThis Place Hotel" (originally named "Heartbreak Hotel") was a hit recording by The Jacksons when it was released in 1980.

    Written and composed by Michael (and produced by The Jacksons), the song would precede Jackson's own hit, "Billie Jean", in its insecurity-plagued tale of confusion. While his brothers did not sing background vocals, they were credited with playing percussion on the album while brother Tito contributed a guitar solo. The song has a tempo of 98 beats per minute, making it notably slower than many of the other disco-based songs on the album. In the song, the protagonist speaks of a time when ten years ago, he took his girlfriend to a hotel for a romantic night - only to find out that it was designed specifically to break couples up. The staff at the hotel gave the girl the impression that he had cheated on her with someone else, something he did not do, which caused her to break up with him in the hotel
