lyrics

Willows Motel (4:36) © 2005 Jason Paul Johnston
Get me out of this house cause it's Monday,
I don't want to be here all alone.
When the rest of the week piles upon me,
I just can't bear the weight here at home.

All my options laid out on the table.
They're just two so I get out my coin.
Will it be rent a room with free cable?
Or stay right here with my laundry to fold?

So it's pack up the bag, grab my guitar again
Head to the front counter, checking out to check in
Live from the Willows motel
It's Live from the Willows motel

I'm surrounded by fans who adore me,
Just a flick of remote and they come.
I've got women who follow me closely,
From the very top shelf they all run.

And they scream and they shout, they're all singing my lines
Like they're right in my head, they've got my name on a sign...

I've got clean sheets and towels and small soap
All I need here to make a fresh start
When I come on back home I'll have new hope
I'll return with a nice folded heart
