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.
