"Temporary Love" as written by and Melissa Morrison Higgins....
You’re doing something
Something to my heart
Some kind of motion
That’s pulling it apart
'Cause I live on the other side
Of the sea

This is temporary, temporary love
Only temporary, temporary love

But something’s moving
In places I’d forgotten
The knives you’re throwing
Keep hitting the right spot
I keep on trying to tell my, trying to tell myself

This is temporary, temporary love
Only temporary, temporary love
This is temporary
Gotta keep reminding myself that
This is temporary love (let the love in, let the love in)

Yeah this is one sweet moment
But it ain’t going to last

You’re doing something
Underneath my skin
I never meant to
Let you so far in
I keep on trying to tell myself

This is temporary, temporary love
Only temporary, temporary love
This is temporary, temporary love
Only temporary, temporary love

Gotta keep reminding myself that
This is one sweet moment
But it ain’t going to last

    General CommentI feel like this is part 2 to "Unashamed Desire." Evidence:

    "We get one sweet moment in the arms of youth" -Unashamed Desire

    "Yeah this is one sweet moment
    but it ain’t going to last" -Temporary Love

    My OpinionI perceive the wording of "temporary love" is more specifically "temporary intimacy" perhaps; the sensuality, the sexual intimacy that is expressed. But "Love". Love which is felt and expressed is not temporary. Love is known for being eternal. The love that one shares with another or with their specific lover cannot be temporary it lives on, whether in the mind or the heart or both,- u decide. But Love is forever.
    When we say here Temporary Love, perhaps or (of course) we are dealing with the expression of love... It's just a play on words.
    Live and Let Live..
