    Lyrics

    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

    Pass the church and the steeple, the laundry on the hill
    Billboards and the buildings
    Memories of it still keep calling, and calling
    But forget it all I know I will

    Tempted by the fruit of another
    Tempted, but the truth is discovered
    What's been going on, now that you have 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 carousel
    The people keep on grabbing, ain't wishing I was well
    I said, it's no occasion, it's no story I can tell

    At my bedside, empty pocket, a foot without a sock
    Your body gets much closer, I fumble for the clock
    Alarmed by the seduction, I wish that it would stop

    Tempted by the fruit of another
    Tempted, but the truth is discovered
    What's been going on, now that you have 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 is there to do?

    Tempted by the fruit of another
    Tempted, but the truth is discovered
    What's been going on, now that you have gone
    There's no other
    Tempted by the fruit of another
    Tempted, but the truth is discovered

    Tempted by the fruit of another
    Tempted, but the truth is discovered
    Tempted by the fruit of another
    Tempted, but the truth is discovered

      The writer is Chris Difford. He also has his own solo stuff out now, and it's incredible. He is a truly great guy, really genuine and ever so friendly.
