Tempted
Squeeze Lyrics


I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste
A flannel for my face
Pajamas, a hairbrush
New shoes and a case
I said to my reflection
"Let's get out of this place"

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

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 car park, the airport
The baggage carousel
(The people keep on grindin')
Ain't wishing I was well
I said it's no occasion
(It's no story I could 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

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 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?

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

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

Vice City baby. Responsible for half my music taste.

@Lieutenant Dan You understand that some people are younger and 80s sht like this wasn't exactly playing out of every tv/radio they walked by

It's the opposite of sad... It's pretty awesome

They would've been NSYNC and Brittney Spears fans if they hadn't played that game instead they're here listening to the same music as some loser telling them "the way they heard it first was sad"
lol ironic

Flock Of Seagulls baby... ridin across the highway bridge while the sun is going down

It's good too because without 3/VC/SA radio that generation of kids would've been exposed to mainly digital pop

This was the only instance I've heard the word "flannel" used to describe a washcloth

Tux

I always thought he was talking about a flannel shirt and was so confused
