Temptation

lyrics

temptation you devil
you've seen the last of me
this time I've left you for good
gonna settle down and get married

buy a house and a car, send the children to school
and when the t.v.'s on we'll both sit there and drool
temptation I love you
you're the only one for me

temptation I don't want you
you won't get me back this time
for once I feel stable
got a girlfriend who treats me alright

but when the wind is blowing strong
and the grass is growing green
I can't help but wonder where you might be
temptation I love you
you're the only one for me

I've tried being faithful
I've given my heart to a women or two
but sooner or later I'm finding out
that she's fallen in love with you

temptation I miss you
my life has grown stagnant and stale
that woman she hounds me
she's always making me climb stairs
(that aint even there)

I suppose she loves me and I guess I love her too
but nobody moves me like you do
temptation I love you
you're the only one for me

I've tried being faithful
I've given my heart to a women or two
but sooner or later I'm finding out
that she's fallen in love with you

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
