THE lyrics in the Elvis song Heart­break

VIZ - - Letter Blocks -

Ho­tel have al­ways struck me as be­ing very poor. Specif­i­cally the line ‘I found a new place to dwell’. No one uses the word ‘dwell’ in nor­mal con­ver­sa­tion. Ob­vi­ously, I’m not a pro­fes­sional song­writer but why didn’t they go with some­thing like: Well, since my baby left me, I found a new place to rent, Down at the end of Lonely Street, Made of ce­ment This makes a lot more sense, but does have the draw­back that the song would have to be reti­tled Made Of Ce­ment. Dave Thom­son, Glas­gow
