The Temptress
The Temptress

Well here we are again
Seems I’ve read this script before
But every now and then
You come knocking on my door
If your plans they don’t include me
Why even waste my time
Or come again to tempt me
Let me hold what isn’t mine

We came so close the last time
But I couldn’t play your game
You had me longing for the temptress
And ignoring all the pain

There were lots of empty promises
And a pile of broken dreams
You even tried to tell me
You were all I really need
The worlds would come so easy
Then the music would appear
But the lights would fade to darkness
Then silence to my ears

We came so close the last time
But I couldn’t play your game
You had me longing for the temptress
And ignoring all the pain

So should I enjoy your company
Or prepare for you to leave
Is this living in the moment
What believing in you means
After all that I have done for you
You left me singing in the street
And drunken from a memory
The wine is bittersweet

We came so close the last time
But I couldn’t play your game
You had me longing for the temptress
And ignoring all the pain
