Crowded House - Into temptation
Tekst en muziek: Neil Finn
(1988)






You opened up your door
I couldn’t believe my luck
You in your new blue dress
Taking away my breath
The cradle is soft and warm
It couldn’t do me no harm
You’re showing me how to give



Into temptation
Knowing full well, the earth will rebel
Into temptation



In a muddle of nervous words
Could never amount to betrayal
Sentence is all my own
And the price is to watch it fail
As I turn to go
You looked at me for half a second
With an open invitation for me to go



Into temptation
Knowing full well, the earth will rebel
Into temptation
Safe in the wide open arms of hell



We can go sailing in
Climb down
Lose yourself when you linger long
Into temptation
Right where you belong



The guilty get no sleep
In the last slow hours of morning
Experience is cheap
I should have listened to the warning
But the cradle is soft and warm



Into temptation
Knowing full well, the earth will rebel
Into your wide open arms
No way to break this spell



Break this spell
Don’t tell
