about

The vocals on this song were improvised over a simple keyboard pattern and then collaged together with additional instruments added. It was written in reference to a motel room that is very special to Pawl and ttypes

lyrics

And it could go on like this…

In room 5 tonight

I’ve always been there...been here…been there

Got nothing left…

Preachers of the sky mall catalog,
why did they leave it in here?

The light shines on again

Sittin on the arm chair of the universe

I got nothing left

Couldn’t be worse

Couldn’t be my only destiny… in Room 5

In room 5 The light shines on again

It could go on like this…
Somebody somebody

In room 5

Somethin twice as nice
Sunrise, it was the moonlight, sunrise
Would you turn the bring lights on?

Been here

Hot water, where’s the hot water?
Bar of soap, coffee maker…where’s the hot water?
There’s a coffee maker I knew once
Ain’t got no cigarettes, ain’t got no coffee iron

Been there…

A light shines on again

And I want room 5 (it could go on like this)
Anyone could see what happens…
When you leave
Got nothing left (always been there, been there)

Black and white movies play on the TV
Poundin on the walls, pounding on, pounding on
It was the moonlight, moonlight

The light shines on it could go on like this

I can see deep into the freezer
Could you be my?

In room 5 tonight

In room 5…..
I’m going sold

Always been there, been here In room 5 tonight

In Room 5

It’s a summer day/ ice tea
I’ve got the remedy

Brown, is the color that I see

In room 5 tonight
It could go on like this

Constellations on the ceiling….

Been here, been here

Somebody somebody

{I’m on the outs tonight}

Two hours a sleep
Got people to meet
I’m pounding on the door
Don’t wanna leave
I’m pounding on the door, pounding on the door

Got nothing left
In room 5 tonight the light shines on tonight

Don’t wanna leave room 5
Don’t wanna go outside

I tried to throw my love at ya
Couldn’t catch it couldn’t catch it all

….in room 5

Wanna turn the TV on
And see the newscasters talkin to me
And looking me/ looking me in the eyes

I can’t……
Stay in this motel…
But I don’t have anywhere else to go
Turn the bright lights on
Turn the bright lights on
See myself…

Ain’t life a mystery/ ain’t got no history

Ain’t life a mystery/ ain’t got no history
Ain’t life a mystery/ ain’t got no history
In room…………..in room 5

In room 5 tonight
It could go on like this

I’ve always been here/ I’ve always been here
Will you turn the bright lights on?
Will you turn the bright lights on?
Will you turn the bright lights on?
Will you turn the bright lights on?

It could on like this
In room 5 tonight

Turn on the lava lamp
Turn on the sink
Turn on the air conditioning
Back window

Your cable TV

It could on like this/ in room 5 tonight
Got nothing left

Watching all the episodes a light
A light shines on tonight
We’re checking into room 5…

And it could go on like this…
