Steve Harley – Irresistible lyrics

I wish you could be here

I'm sitting in my vest

It's easy to reach here

No geography test

And there's a confession

I'm writing to contest

The truth I've heard

Since I was small

I'm having a good time

I'm doing it all twice

I'm happy to be here

We're learning to survive

I'm easying my conscience

By putting it on ice

It's so cold, it's so cold, it's so cold

And getting colder


One thing I know

Truth can be irresistible

One thing I know

Truth is the key, happy to be

So ir-res-ist-ible

It's lovely to be here

The people are so kind

I'm talking to soldiers

They're picketing my mind

I'd rather be simple and think like a child

Don't read the papers I take as I find

They're building a new town

There's rubber in the streets

The children are playing

There's no trick and no treats

Let's walk in the sunshine

This is paradise in heat

It's so warm, it's so warm, it's so warm

It's getting warmer

Repeat chorus:

I'm going to rest now

The thunder has died down

I'm hoping for peace now

I've had it with this town

We're learning to handle

A weapon we've found

It's so warm, it's so warm, it's so warm

And getting warmer

Repeat chorus:
