Passed the church and the steeple The laundry on the hill Billboards and the buildings Memories of it still Keep calling and calling But forget it all I know I will [CHORUS] Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered What's been going on Now that you have gone There's no other Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered I'm at the carpark, the airport The baggage carousel The people keep on grabbing And wishing I was well I said, it's no occasion It's no story I can tell At my bedside, empty pocket A foot without a sock Your body gets much closer I fumble for the clock Alarmed by the seduction I wish that it would stop [repeat CHORUS] I bought a novel, some perfume A fortune all for you But it's not my conscience That hates to be untrue I asked of my reflection Tell me what is there to do [repeat CHORUS] Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered.....
