Pat Benatar – Temptation lyrics

We got it all but it ain't enough
No, we're never ever happy with what we got
I see that look on your face, you know I've seen that look before
Don't you be fooled baby, you gonna show
It's just temptation, whoa... Temptation
Temptation whoa... Must be temptation

Too far to fall but we always do
Though we swore in our hearts to be true
You say that hand that your holdin' feels a little cold sometime
Baby sooner or later, you're gonna find that true love..

Is just like temptation, whoa... Temptation
Temptation whoa... Feels like temptation
Now listen here... Whoa... Temptation
Whoa... Temptation whoa....

We want it all and we want it fast
No time to think, no time to ask
But you know that road that we're on don't always lead to happiness
You can count on it baby
It's a pretty good guess now all we got

Is just temptation, whoa... Temptation
Temptation whoa... Feels like temptation
Temptation whoa... Looks like temptation
Temptation -- must be temptation yeah
