"Temptation Greets You Like Your Naughty Friend" as written by Dylan Kwabena Mills, Nicholas Andrew Detnon, Alexander David Turner and Daniel Carnegie....
I don't ever want to hate you
So don't show me your bed
The only roads are cul-de-sacs
The first thing that she said

Temptation, greets you like your naughty mate
The one that used to get you in bother
But one you could never bring yourself to hate

And she said we've got that spark
That only lights a fuse
Helps you see in the dark
But it's a sight you'll lose when
The temptation greets you like your naughty friend

I don't ever want to hate you
So don't show me your bed
The only roads are cul-de-sacs
The only ends are dead

Temptation greets you like your naughty mate
One that made you steal and set things on fire
But one you haven't seen of late

And I said that kind of talk
Only adds intrigue
To the cauldron of thought
It's already exceeding
Temptation, the very thing that held her back

I don't ever want to hate you
So don't show me your bed
The only roads are cul-de-sacs
The only ends are dead

I don't ever want to hate you
It's not part of the plan
So keep your charm where I can't see it

And your hands where I can

We used to be in tight me and my naughty friends
Caused enticement in the air
I mean day 'n' night
We robbed, we stole, we loved to fight
Smoking, drinking, joyriding
Drugs, thugs, not law-abiding
Reckless gangsters, no direction
No sign of correction
But then I switched it off
Changed my ways
What the hell
Like oh my days
But like my naughty friends
They're not phased
Can't believe that this music pays
See no reason why we can't do
All the things we've always done
Still in my heart I know that's just what
But its hard to fight the temptation son

The panic will fall down around you
If you don't do what I say

I don't ever want to hate you
So don't show me your bed
The only roads are cul-de-sacs
The only ends are dead

I don't ever want to hate you
It's not part of the plan
So keep your charm where I can't see it
And your hands where I can

    General CommentI'm absolutely in love with this song, its amazing! But I dont think its about friends I actually think it's about meeting someone that you know thats no good for you but you really dont want to see his/her bad side! Its like that naughty friend that always gets you in trouble, but you still like..

    Or sumthin like that..

    General Commenti'm sure it's

    "and i said that kind of talk
    only adds intriuge
    to the cold on the floor
    over the exceeding
    temptation the very thing that held her back "

    i'm not sure its "to the cold on the floor" but i can't figure it out.

    General Commentand.. i'm sure dizzees bit is..


    "we used to be tight, me and my naughty friends
    cause pure madness in the end, i mean day and night
    we rob we stole we love to fight
    smokin drinkin ...
    drugs ....
    reckless monsters no direction
    no sign no correction
    but then i switch it off, change my ways
    well they'll envy like all my days
    but like my naughty friends they're not phased
    can't beleive that this music pays
    see no reason why we can't do
    all the things we've always done
    still in my heart i know thats just wrong
    but its hard to fight the temptation, son"
