lyrics

I was only pretending to be faithful
While you were playing hard-to-get
But faith is only found by the lucky
And luck has not come around here yet
I’m not offering any promises
Anyway there’s no one left for us to betray
The clock’s running out on the night now
Faster than it ran away from the day

Your eyes light the walls of this paper thin hotel
And you could burn down this city as well
Let’s burn down this paper thin hotel.

I came here to listen to your story
But not the one you would tell me in words
I’m listening for the real conversation
The one between my eyes and yours
You lay out your cards to tell my fortune
You know damn well it was stolen by thieves
I’m not interested in being your Magician
But call me your Fool, that’s alright with me

Your eyes light the walls of this paper thin hotel
And you could burn down this city as well
Let’s burn down this paper thin hotel.
