Keys for Room 21



I'm only feasible
I'm only beautiful and lovable
in the pitch black of the motel room
I'm checking in for keeps,
so check the windows and draw the shades
secure, make sure the deadbolt is driven all the way through
It wasn't that you didn't want me
just not in front of the others
I can appreciate the discretion
since I live my life undercover
Why kiss me like today's your last?
If you're satisfied
then why are you going back?
How can I keep you here
in this rental room of secrecy?
You live in the lush manicured hills
with your well-to-do hubby
I'll be here next week
in my convalescent cubby
In room twenty-one by the highway
The only way she wants me
