Heartbreak Hotel - Poem by Barry Hughes

Why do I live in heartbreak hotel
Where days are pitch black and nights are pure hell
I’m hurt and I’m crying, where can I go
I’m lost and confused, my heads hanging low
The hope that you give is all that I own
Your here in my heart, but I’m still alone
To be by your side is my only way out
The look in your eyes makes my heart want to shout
You’re the stars in my night, the sun in my day
You’re the hope in my life and there’s no other way
The life that you lead, there’s no holding back
The smile you have gives the courage I lack
The feelings I have while talking to you
Brings me a happiness that I never knew
Your part of my life and you’ve changed it a lot
Your part of my dreams and in every thought
The problems I have are starting to flee
Because knowing you’re out there is setting me free
