Tempted


by Squeeze
I:	(A - - - / A/G - - - / F#m - - - / D - - - /  x4  //)

I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste, a flannel for my face
Pajamas, a hairbrush, new shoes and a case
I said to my reflection, "Let's get out of this place"
Past the church and the steeple, the laundry on the hill
The billboards and buildings,
Memories of it still keep calling and calling
But forget it all, I know I will

A - - - / A/G - - - / F#m - - - /    / B - - - /     / C - - - / D7 - - - /
Am - - - /    / Em - - - /    / F - - - / G - - - /
D7 - - - /    / F - - - /    / A - - - /    / Dm - - - /    /
C - - - /    / D - - - /    / C - - - /    / D - - - / D - C - //

 C:	Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on since you've been gone, there's no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I'm at the carpark, the airport, the baggage carrousel
People keep on crowding and wishing I was well
I said it's no occasion, it's no story I can tell
At my bedside an empty pocket, the foot without a sock
The body gets much closer, I fumble for the clock
Alarmed by the seduction, I wish that it would stop

A - - - / A/G - - - / F#m - - - / D - - - /  x4  /  x4  /  x4  / Bm - - - /    / E - - - /    /
A - - - / A/G - - - / F#m - - - / D - - - /  x4  /  x4  /  x4  / Bm - - - /    / Dm - - - /    //

 C:	Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on since you've been gone, there's no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I bought a novel, some perfume, a fortune all for you
But it's not my conscience that hates to be untrue
I asked of my reflection, tell me what else is there to do?

 C:	Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on since you've been gone, there's no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
