You told the man in the Broadway Hotel
Nothing was stranger than being yourself
And he replied with a tear in his eye

Love was a rollaway
Just a cajole away
Mist on a summer's day
Nothing was clear
Love was a smile away
Just a defile away
I sought it every way
No one came near

You asked the man for a room with a view
Nothing was said as he stared at his shoe
Then he replied as he gave you the key

Love was a rollaway
Just an unfold away
That's all there is to say
No one came near

Alone in your room you hide
As the night rolls by
In the street outside
And you feel over the words he said
Till they turn to rain all around your head

You're seeking a hideaway
Where the light of day
Doesn't touch your face
And a door sign keeps the world away
Behind the shades
Of your silent day

You made your home in the Broadway Hotel
Room service came at the push of a bell
And the man said as he put down the tray

Love was a steal away
Just a reveal away
I tried to find a way
Nothing was clear
Then as he turned away
You asked the man to stay
He was there all the day
No one came near
