Temptation

It's time for me to be on my way I know
I've got business to conduct and I've got places to go
But I can't help looking at her sleeping instead
Another morning I'll have trouble climbing out of this bed
Because - she's such a temptation
It's driving me crazy
And it's my fascination that's making me act this way
And I know what all of my friends say
They're afraid that I'm losing my touch
But she's such a temptation

I look so tired 'cause I don't get much sleep
And I've got too many commitments that are too hard too keep
And I try to be rational and I try to be wise
But it all gets blown to pieces when I look in her eyes
Because - she's such a temptation
And nothing can save me
Any my only salvation is tearing myself away
I know what all of my friends say:
There's a danger in wanting too much
She's such a temptation

I should be leaving, but I can't cut it loose
I have my reasons for resistance, but I have no excuse
And I lose my composure; I could use some restraint
I never claimed to be a hero, and I never said I was a saint
She's such a temptation
And it's driving me crazy
And it's my fascination that's making me act this way
And I can just hear all my friends say:
“Better watch out, you're losing your touch”
She's such a temptation
Yes she is
She's such a temptation
Yes she is
Yes she is
She's such a temptation
