"The Lure Would Prove too Much" as written by and Gregory E Dulli....
Stone cold
I think I’m taking you home
So I can be broken in two
Just like you

Sexy eyes
And c'est la vie
I’ll call you sometime
When I’m blue

Say so, I’m getting under
Your skin, so soft
I can't help but pursue
'Till I’m screwed

Sunset, everything's fire
But I can't get any higher
Come get this lightning
And rain all over me

Come to, I forget all of it
Someone, I can't remember at all
Is going to fall

Oh babe, without any doubt there is
One thing I am nothing without and
Oh babe, surely you know I’ll never tell you

Come back down
Come back down
Come, if you're dumb

Oh babe, without any doubt there is
One thing I am nothing without and
Oh babe, surely you know I’ll never tell you

Sunrise
Sunrise
Sunrise
Some rise
Sunrise
Sunrise
Sunrise
Sunrise
On me
On me

Shine on
I can see clearly
The light on
Crashing me into the rocks
You siren sweet
Street

    My OpinionThe more I listen to this song, and knowing a bit about Dulli, I am convinced this song is about Ted Demme, and his death, which has been attributed to cocaine. Greg and Ted were great friends and @ the end of the song are a series of voice mails, some which may prove to be from Ted Demme....including I believe directions to his house and an invitation to play basketball....Demme died playing basketball after a night of partying...then the last message is Greg's mother trying to get in touch with him, she hasn't spoken to him since the funeral....could be 100% wrong, but makes sense to me.
