Lyrics

I don't need no papers
To tell me we're through.
I'm half a mile from anywhere
And now I know that it's true.

Said she's had enough of talking.
Said she's had enough of all those lonely nights.
And she'll be leaving in the morning.
So sad to say that I've thrown it all away just for a...

One day temptation
Open your eyes, it's me in disguise.
One night sensation
What a surprise, it's me telling lies.

I practised liberation
And she set me free.
And now I'm half a world from anywhere but right now
It's where i wanna be. I'm so lonely, can't you see?

So I was never good a talking
But any fool could see that something wasn't right,
And if you're leaving in the morning,
I'll try to change if you believe when I say it's just a...

One day temptation
Open yours eyes, it's me in disguise.
One night sensation
What a surprise, it's me telling lies.

You pushed me down, watched me fall,
Come and see - I'll guarantee you respect!
An appetite for you and me - come on baby,
Let me into your head.

Who can blame me for a one day temptation?
