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 the 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
Said this is the place,
You said meet you right here at noon

This is Heartbreak hotel
Welcome to Heartbreak hotel
So this is Heartbreak hotel
This place is 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 a trial but it begun
To hurt me (This is killing me)
Then the man next door had told
She's been here in tears for fifteen years
This is scaring me

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

This is Heartbreak hotel
Welcome to Heartbreak hotel
So evil Heartbreak hotel
This is place is Heartbreak hotel (Repeat 2x)

    General CommentI think this is one of the first masterpieces MJ released. It had that hook that would pull you into the song and those strong vocals that were his. It was catchy, but still had musicality to it. It had that atmosphere to it and although the lyrics could be cheesy in my opinion, there's such conviction in his voice you believe in the song.

    Seeing as I'm a younger fan, it was interesting going back in time to see how MJ developed with his dancing and songwriting and general musicianship.
