Lyrics

Tempted

the play’s been contested
player’s been ejected
someone’s gonna fall
I’ve been haunted, detested, and arrested
got life in the face, I confess, what a mess
scratch’s on the wall, someone get that call
someone take that call

I’m taunted
and I’m tested
and I’m tempted
oooooh so tempted

an addiction to limitation
holding on to fear
restriction, conviction, what a situation
restrained, contained, and rearranged
ignited inspiration, undecided calculation
that moment is so near

I’m taunted
and I’m tested
and I’m tempted
oooooh so tempted

are you thinkin’ of the impossibilities
crushing what you cannot see
ahhhh, you gotta see
choose what you want, loose what you don’t
do what you will, believe what is real
you can do any thing you want

I’m taunted
and I’m tested
and I’m tempted
oooooh so tempted

everyone’s served what they think they deserve
you’re the waiter, you’re the waitress
so what are you waiting for
you’re the giver, you’re the taker
what are you looking for
you’re the temptress, you’re the hostess
just open the door

I’m taunted
and I’m tested
and I’m tempted
oooooh so tempted

oooooh so tempted
tempted to rise into the skies
tempted to fall into your eyes
tempted that you might realize

oooh oooh oooh

oh I’m tempted
oooooh so tempted
oh yeah so tempted
oooooh
