Sweet Temptation Lyrics –

[Verse 1]
I know I’m not the only one who gets confused
Need to listen a little longer
Think a little bit before I choose
It’s not always as a simple as a wrong or right
It’s like I’m looking at a mountain
Trying to see it from the other side

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe that means I’m seein’ nothing
Maybe I should have seen it coming
The devil on my shoulder
Sittin’ on the angel’s side

[Chorus]
Oh, sweet temptation
Always turnin’ me on
(Oh-whoa-oh)
(Oh-whoa-oh)
Oh, sweet temptation
Throw myself in your arms
(Oh-whoa-oh)
(Oh-whoa-oh)

[Verse 2]
Standing in the middle of a broken road
I’ve been searching for an answer
Back in my mind I’ve always known
If I turn around I walk alone
If it makes me better, maybe that’s the road that leads me home

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe that means I’m doin’ nothin’
Maybe that makes me more alive
The angel on my shoulder
Sittin’ on the devil’s side

[Chorus]
Oh, sweet temptation
Always turnin’ me on
(Oh-whoa-oh)
(Oh-whoa-oh)
Oh, sweet temptation
Throw myself in your arms
(Oh-whoa-oh)
(Oh-whoa-oh)
Hold me, hold me
I don’t know me
You’re my remiss
One and only
Sweet temptation
Always turnin’ me on

[Outro]
There’s no amount of prayin’
There’s no amount of will
There’s nothin’ gonna keep me
From climbing up the hill
Oh, sweet temptation
Are you leading me home?
