about

Near the Luxembourg gardens, there's the "Hotel Avenir" with its fifties style sign in faded green lettering and a dark, uninviting entrance.

lyrics

TO SANDY FROM THE HOTEL AVENIR

THE CARPET'S WORN THIN AT THE HOTEL AVENIR
THOSE WHO'VE TROD THIS PATH BEFORE
BEYOND THE SHUTTERS THE 21ST CENTURY
WHILE TIME HANGS MOTIONLESS IN HERE

ROOMS FOR RENT BY THE HOUR THE WEEK
GUESTS (THEY CALL US GUESTS) BUT GIVE US PLASTIC SHEETS
THAT CRACKLE AS YOU TOSS IN SOME HAUNTED SLEEP
HOW DID WE END UP HERE….. AT THE HOTEL AVENIR

BUT YOU MADE IT THROUGH SANDY
YOU MARRIED A MILLIONAIRE
YOU MOVE IN THE HIGHEST CIRCLES
DRESSED IN CHRISTIAN DIOR

VOICES ARE HUSHED AT THE HOTEL AVENIR
FLIES DESCRIBE CIRCLES IN THE AIR
A BUBBLE RISES SLOWLY IN THE OPTIC AS A HAND
REACHES OUT FOR A DREAM THAT'S TRAPPED IN A GLASS
PHANTOMS WALK HERE AT THE HOTEL AVENIR
I'VE SEEN THEM THEY NOD
AS THEY PASS IN THE CORRIDOR
WALLS ARE SO THIN YOU CAN HEAR FINGERNAILS GROW
2 CMS A YEAR……AT THE HOTEL AVENIR

SAW YOUR FACE IN THE PAPER SANDY
CAUGHT WITH A HOLLYWOOD STAR
ON THE BACK SEAT IN A LAY-BY
I'M SURE IT WAS A LIE

TIME TO REFLECT AT THE HOTEL AVENIR
HOW THINGS DIDN'T WORK OUT HOW WE PLANNED
WE WERE GREAT TOGETHER SANDY I SHOULD HAVE STUCK WITH YOU
COULD YOU LEND ME A FEW QUID TO JUST SEE ME THROUGH?
ROOMS FOR RENT...

SO YOUR HUSBAND LEFT YOU SANDY
TOOK BACK THE SHINY CAR
YOUR BEST FRIEND'S NOW JACK DANIELS
AND THE KID'S BACK IN CARE
