Hotel California

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air

Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
On a dark desert highway...Image by from the field via Flickr
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell

And I was thinking to myself,

’this could be heaven or this could be hell’

Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way

There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say..
 
Welcome to the hotel california

Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the hotel california
Any time of year, you can find it here

Her mind is tiffany-twisted, she got the mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
So I called up the captain,
’please bring me my wine’
He said, ’we haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine’
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...
Welcome to the hotel californiaMirrors on the ceiling,

Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face

Plenty of room at the hotel california
Any time of year, you can find it here


The pink champagne on ice
And she said ’we are all just prisoners here, of our own device’
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
The stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast
Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
’relax,’ said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave!
Welcome to the hotel california
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the hotel california
Any time of year, you can find it here

This song has a special meaning to me.  When I was in highschool one of my closest friends had this tape in her pickup, and eveytime we went on a road trip, to the river, a barrel race, a trail ride, o-mok-see, or any kind of outing we had to play this song.  It was like our anthem.  Everytime I hear this song I think of the times we had, riding horses, talking about what we wanted to be and do when we grew up. 
Oh such great memories.  Thank you , thank you....Did we grow up and do all the things that we set out too?  No not yet!


But someday I hope :)
