i confess
i cannot resist
no matter what the danger

·

temptations lure me
to risk it all

·

the past won’t release me willingly
i have the strength
i do

·

i don’t need help
i will not fall

·

i must say no
hold fast
find my soul again

·

{ just let me give in one more time }

“Temptation”   Moby

lyrics ~

Heaven
A gateway to hope
Just like a feeling I need
It’s no joke

And though it hurts me
To see you this way
Betrayed by words
I’d never heard
Too hard to say them

Oh, up, down, turn around; please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone; find my soul as I go home
Up, down, turn around; please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone; find my soul as I go home

Oh, it’s the last time
Oh, it’s the last time
Oh, it’s the last time
Oh, it’s the last time

Each way I turn
I know I’ll always try
To break the circle
That has been placed ’round me

From time to time
I find I lost
Some meaning
That was urgent
To myself
I do believe

Oh, up, down, turn around; please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone; find my soul as I go home
Up, down, turn around; please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone; find my soul as I go home

Oh it’s the last time
Oh, it’s the last time
Oh, it’s the last time
Oh, it’s the last time

And I’ve never met anyone quite like you before
And I’ve never met anyone quite like you before
And I’ve never met anyone quite like you before
And I’ve never met anyone quite like you before

And I’ve never met anyone quite like you before
Oh, up, down, turn around; please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone; find my soul as I go home

And I’ve never met anyone quite like you before
Up, down, turn around; please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone; find my soul as I go home

Up, down, turn around; please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone; find my soul as I go home
Up, down, turn around; please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone; find my soul as I go home

  4. I like this! I don’t have a hard time resisting temptation; I have a hard time wanting to resist temptation!

  5. Wow….This is the story of my life the last few days….creepy

    Ah, who could resist such a tempting write! Well done you :o)

  7. Great piece Dani! Both good and bad temptations are all around us always. But you will not fall with you positive vibes.

  8. It’s the “just one more”s that always do me in.

  9. Fortunately there is always the new morning to try again! Great poem for all the prompts!

  10. What good is temptation if you never give in? How could you feel virtuous when your refuse? Loved the 55 treatment, and enjoyed the Moby.

    .. love this little trip .. this little walk on the wild side!

  12. I’m always giving in … one more time!

  13. I can’t imagine you giving into temptation, such a sweet person you are, Dani. Smiles :)
