"Temptation" as written by and Tom Waits....
Rusted brandy in a diamond glass
Everything is made from dreams
Time is made from honey slow and sweet
Only the fools know what it means

Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
I can't resist

I just know that she is made of smoke
But I've lost my way
She knows that I am broke
But that I must play

Temptation
Temptation, yeah
Temptation
I can't resist

Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
I just can't resist

Dutch pink and Italian blue
She is there and waiting for you
My will has disappeared
My confusion is oh-so clear

Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
I can't resist

Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
I can't resist

Rusted brandy in a diamond glass
Everything is made from dreams
Time is made from honey slow and sweet
Only the fools know what it means

Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
Temptation

    General CommentI couldn't get along with this song for months but I just love it now, the intro is so rich with sounds. Frank's Wild Years does that to you. It makes friends with you, but only if you spend enough time with it
