Bon Jovi Temptation Lyrics

Place my missing picture on my beer

I’m running away from home

Sam I’m just a man

A rusted bucket of flesh and bones

Someday I’ll seek forgiveness

For the sweet smell of her breath

She touched my hand and asked for a check

I put out my cigarette

Temptation

Temptation, go home Lord

I’m walking straight into the ocean

Tell the tide I’m on my way

I’m gonna hang my head down tonight

On Damocles sword

When the angels hung out in Eden

They caught Adam chasing Eve

They said grab your boots, your coat, your hat

My boy, it’s time that you leave

She asked me if I’d liked to play

‘Cause she knew that I was broke

I cashed my chips out months ago

This smile is just mirrors and smoke

Temptation

Temptation, go home Lord

I’m walking straight into the ocean

Tell the tide I’m on my way

I’m gonna hang my head down tonight

On Damocles sword

Twist my wrist

Tell me I should resist

But the flesh is weak

Here comes the kiss

Twist my wrist

I can’t go on like this

Ah the flesh is weak

Here it comes, here it comes

Temptation

Temptation, go home Lord

I’m walking straight into the ocean

Tell the tide I’m on my way

I’m gonna lay my head down tonight

On Damocles sword, temptation

I’m gonna lay my head down tonight

On Damocles sword
