"Temptation" as written by Arthur Ross and Leon Ware....
I've never been closer
I've tried to understand
That certain feeling
Carved by another's hand

But it's too late to hesitate
We can't keep on living like this
Leave no track
Don't look back

(All I desire)
Temptation
(Keep climbing higher and higher)
Temptation
(Adorable creatures)
Temptation
(With unacceptable features)
Temptation
(Trouble is coming)
Temptation
(It's just the high cost of loving)
Temptation
(You can take it or leave it)
Temptation
(But you'd better believe it)

You've got to make me an offer
That cannot be ignored
So let's head for home now
Everything I have is yours
Step by step and day by day
Every second counts I can't break away
Leave no trace
Hide your face

(All I desire)
Temptation
(Keep climbing higher and higher)
Temptation
(You can take it or leave it)
Temptation
(But you'd better believe it)

Step by step and day by day
Every second counts I can't break away
Keep us from temptation
Keep us from temptation
Keep us from temptation
Lead us not into temptation

(All I desire)
Temptation
(Keep climbing higher and higher)
Temptation
(Adorable creatures)
Temptation
(With unacceptable features)
Temptation
(Trouble is coming)
Temptation
(It's just the high cost of loving)
Temptation
(You can take it or leave it)
Temptation
(But you'd better believe it)

You've got to make me an offer
That cannot be ignored
So let's head for home now
Everything I have is yours
Step by step and day by day
Every second counts I can't break away
Leave no trace
Hide your face

(Trying to find it)
Temptation
(You've got to get up behind me)
Temptation
(Put your dime in the hot slot)
Temptation
(But it's a million to one shot)
Temptation
(You think that you're right now)
Temptation
(You're going to fake it tonight now)
Temptation
(Give me a breakdown)
Temptation
(Because it's time for a shakedown)

(Temptation)
It's just temptation

(Temptation)
