Lyrics To Temptation

At this stage it should be said this could be nothing
or this it could be great
And all my grand plans could be thrown into disarray
But I must take the blame a half-hard word
a broken promise
Is that really you offers?
Is that really you’re offering me?

If all it takes is envy and a mention of her name
to drive you off the rails
Temptation will I survive I’m sure I will
The temptation is rife to follow your lead
colour your eyes
To take your chances, to take your chances whilst
we have them

And I can’t stand to see you as drunk as you are,
slurring your words and staggering,
It’s all too much for me to take in
So I will just find refuge in a well harvested harbour
bar and I’ll be slurring my words and staggering but
where’s the harm in that it seems?

And now you’ve seen me lost, deserted and confused,
is the love still there? Am I the man, am I the man
that you imagined? The temptation is rife, to follow
your lead colour your eyes, to take your chances, to
take your chances whilst you have them

You know that I hate you, but that’s not true at all,
sometimes I want to hold you tight and sometimes I
want to throw you against the wall, but that’s not
hate at all it’s love in all it’s glory all the
contradictions and the questions that I don’t
understand and I probably never will

If all it takes is envy and a mention of her name
to drive you off the rails
Temptation will I survive I’m sure I will
The temptation is rife to follow your lead
colour your eyes
To take your chances, to take your chances whilst
we have them
