Temptation (Words and Music by Thomas Alan Waits)


rusted brandy in a diamond glass
and everything is made from dreams
time is made from honey slow and sweet
only the fools know what it means

temptation temptation
temptaion ,
I can't resist

I know that she is made of smoke
and I have lost my way
she knows that I am broke
so that I must play

temptation temptation
I cant resist

Dutch pink and italian blue
she is there waiting for you
my will has disappeared
now my confusion's oh, so clear

temptation temptation
I can't resist
