    Hotel California Lyrics – Eagles – On a Dark Desert Highway 

    [Verse 1]
    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
    My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
    I had to stop for the night

    [Verse 2]
    There she stood in the doorway
    I heard the mission bell
    And I was thinkin’ 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 place
    Such a lovely face
    Plenty of room at the Hotel California
    Any time of year
    Any time of year
    You can find it here”

    [Verse 3]
    Her mind is Tiffany-twisted
    She got the Mercedes Benz, uh
    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

    [Verse 4]
    So I called up the Captain
    “Please bring me my wine”
    He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here
    Since 1969”
    And still those voices are callin’
    From far away
    Wake you up in the middle of the night
    Just to hear them say

    “Welcome to the Hotel California
    Such a lovely place
    Such a lovely place
    Such a lovely face
    They livin’ it up at the Hotel California
    What a nice surprise
    What a nice surprise
    Bring your alibis”

    [Verse 5]
    Mirrors on the ceiling
    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
    They stab it with their steely knives
    But they just can’t kill the beast

    [Verse 6]
    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 check out any time you like
    But you can never leave”
