"Paper Thin Hotel" lyrics

Paper Thin Hotel

The walls of this hotel
Are paper-thin
Last night I heard you
Making love to him
The struggle mouth to mouth
And limb to limb
The grunt of unity
When he came in

I stood there with my ear
Against the wall
I was not seized
By jealousy at all
In fact a burden lifted
From my soul
I heard that love was
Out of my control
A heavy burden lifted
From my soul
I learned that love was
Out of my control

I listened to your kisses
At the door
I never heard the world
So clear before
You ran your bath
And you began to sing
I felt so good
I couldn't feel a thing

I stood there with my ear
Against the wall
I was not seized
By jealousy at all
In fact a burden lifted
From my soul
I heard that love was
Out of my control
A heavy burden lifted
From my soul
I learned that love was
Out of my control

And I can't wait to tell you
To your face
And I can't wait for you
To take my place
You are the naked angel
In my heart
You are the woman
With her legs apart
It's written on the walls
Of this hotel
You go to heaven
Once you've been to hell

A heavy burden lifted
From my soul
I heard that love
Was out of my control
