A long way from home while drinking a beer
A beautiful stranger whispered in my ear
Come up to room 307 and don't tell a soul
I heard forbidden fruit is sweeter but I don't want to know

She asked me to dance I didn't see much harm
But if you dance with the devil she'll turn on her charm
These are some dangerous circumstances I think I should go
I'm tempted wondering what it'd be like to hold her
but I don't want to know

I don't want to know what it's like to cross that line
I don't ever want to see my baby crying
I could keep it a secret it would never show
But what would it cost my heart I don't want to know

There's a three bedroom house six hundred miles away
With a fenced in yard where my children can play
and the angel of my dreams god I love her so
what I would lose to abuse her trust I don't want to know

I don't want to know what it's like to live a lie
Even if she couldn't tell by looking in my eyes
I could keep it a secret it would never show
But what would it cost my heart I don't want to know

I don't want to know what it's like to cross that line
I don't ever want to see my baby crying
I could keep it a secret it would never show
But what would it cost my heart I don't want to know

    General CommentOh I feel like I'm living this one right now. I admit I'm tempted... but like the song says "But what would it cost my heart I don't want to know"
