Temptation ( 1980 'live' version )1987 photo of Perry by Vincent Ialenti

You came,
I was alone,
I should have known,
that you were temptation!
 
You smiled,
luring me on,
my heart was gone,
and you were temptation!
 
It would be thrilling if you were willing,
and if it can never be, pity me,
for you were born to be kissed,
I can’t resist, you are temptation,
and I am yours!
 
Here is my heart!
Take it and say, that we’ll never part!
I’m just a slave, only a slave,
to you!
 
Temptation . . .
 
And I am yours . . .
Here is my heart!
Take it and say, that we’ll never part!
I’m just a slave, only a slave,
to you!
 
Temptation . . .
I’m your slave!
