The fuse is short, the countdown’s on…

So much more to share with you all. I have many blogs running through my head…but I thought I would share lyrics first. These will enhance your enjoyment of the next few posts…before the big check in to Motel 30! : )

Motel 30
Written By: Ron Hawkins

“I wrote this for someone who was turning thirty and freakin’ out. Not unlike Bette Davis in All About Eve, he may as well have been saying, “strap yourselves in… it’s going to be a bumpy night.” What I’ve learned, maybe from Bette Davis, is that people only get sexier when they know what they want.” –Ron Hawkins

Lyrics:

There’s a grenade under his desire
And he burns like a stopwatch on fire
The fuse is short, the countdown’s on
And he’ll pick up all the pieces after she’s gone
He’ll pick up all the pieces after she’s gone

When she’s gone…
You’re gonna drink like a wasted frat
And kick your feet like a spoiled brat
You made your bed now you’re lying alone
And you’ll pick up all the pieces after she’s gone… long gone

Motel 30 is a desperate shout
And if you check in then you’ll never check out
You feel like a hound, you look like a pup
And if you let it get you down then you’ll never get up

Get you down…
Down, down when the pity’s on
Some kind of new-age Ponce de Leon
You’re drinking fear from a wooden cup
And if you let it get you down then you’ll never get up

Paranoid… null and void… beaten down
Tired… of having you around

I know you… I can’t believe it’s true
So, hand me down my walking cane
Don’t wanna hear you spout that bullshit again
If it’s too old baby, you’re too loud
And you’ll feel more lonely out in the crowd
You’ll feel more lonely out in the crowd

In the crowd…
You’ve gotta get with the party plan
Or better move your ass old man
Live your life and live it loud
Or you’ll feel more lonely out in the crowd
You’ll feel more lonely out in the crowd


Whatcha talkin' bout Willis?
