Billy Joel

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 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 to 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

And my only salvation

Is tearing myself away

And I know what all of my friends say

There's a danger in wanting too much

But she's such a temptation

 

I should be leaving

But I can't cut 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

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"

But she's such a temptation

 

Yes she is

She's such a temptation

Yes she is

Yes she is

She's such a temptation
