A Room At The Heartbreak Hotel lyrics by U2

B-side from U2's classic Angel of Harlem, a popular song from Rattle and Hum. The song might be about a hooker or a woman who confuses sex for love.

Either way it's one of those classic songs written by Bono which could mean anything.

Given the bluesy roots that U2 were trying to lay down on Rattle and Hum, Heartbreak Hotel is probably a reference to the popular Elvis song as well.  

Lyrics:

From where I stand
I can see through you
From where you're sitting, pretty one
I know it got to you

See the stars in your eyes
You want the truth but you need the lies
Like Judy Garland, like Valentino
You give your life for rock and roll, uh huh

Stand
We're on the landslide of love
You got everything you want,
And what you need you give away

For a primitive love and a ride on the mystery train
A primitive love
A room at the heart, heartbreak hotel
A room at the heartbreak, heartbreak hotel
A room at the heartbreak, heartbreak hotel

You say it's love, it's not the money
You let them suck your life out like honey
Turning tricks, you're on the street
Selling your kisses so bittersweet

I love it, yeah
Buy me again
I want to know pretty baby
I want to know
The price is too hard to pay

A primitive love and a ride on the mystery train
A primitive love
A room at the heart, heartbreak hotel

A room at the heartbreak, the heartbreak
The heartbreak hotel, hotel
A room at the heartbreak, the heartbreak
The heartbreak hotel, hotel
A room at the heartbreak, the heartbreak
The heartbreak hotel, hotel
A room at the heartbreak, the heartbreak
The heartbreak hotel, hotel

Hallelujah, said halle-hello to ya
Said hallelujah

A room at the heartbreak, the heartbreak
The heartbreak hotel, hotel
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah
A room at the heartbreak, the heartbreak
The heartbreak hotel, hotel
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah
Halle, halle, halle, hallelujah
A room at the heartbreak, the heartbreak
The heartbreak hotel, hotel
