Late Night Grand Hotel

“Late Night Grand Hotel”

VERSE

I’m working on a morning flight to anywhere but here
I’m watching this evening fire burn away my tears
All my life I’ve left my troubles by the door
Leavin’ is all I’ve ever known before

CHORUS
It’s not the way you hold me when the sun goes down.
It’s not the way you call my name that left me stranded on the ground.
It’s not the way you say you hear my heart when the music ends.
I am just learning how to fly away again.

VERSE
And maybe you were thinkin’ that you thought you knew me well.
But, no one ever knows the heart of anyone else.
I feel like Garbo in this late night grande hotel.
Cause living alone is all I’ve ever done well.

CHORUS
It’s not the way you hold me when the sun goes down.
It’s not the way you call my name that left me stranded on the ground.
It’s not the way you say you hear my heart when the music ends.
I am just learning how to fly away again.
It’s not the way you say you hear my heart when the music ends.
I am just learning how to fly away again.
