It's time for me to be on my way I know
And I've got places to go
Another morning I'll have trouble climbing out of this bed
It's driving me crazy
That's making me act this way
They're afraid that I'm losing my touch

And I've got too many commitments that are too hard to keep
And I try to be wise
When I look in her eyes
And nothing can save me
And my only salvation
And I know what all of my friends say
But she's such a temptation
I should be leaving
I have my reasons for resistance
And I lose my composure
I never claimed to be a hero
She's such a temptation
And it's my fascination
And I can just hear all my friends say
But she's such a temptation
Yes she is
Yes she is
She's such a temptation
