Now you may wonder, what lust means to me?
I can sure tell you, it's in all that we see.
It's on the computer and it plays with your head.
When you're searching the web, and sex pops up instead.
It comes when you're innocently watching the game.
Here comes that commercial, she's calling your name.
Ooh, Michelob rocks have a sip, come on in.
If you drink this brand I'm yours, score and win.
It is often next door laying out by the pool.
Wearing a thong with no top, so you drool.
I find that it most often comes with a fight.
You made me mad, I'm getting lucky tonight.
It likes to creep up when passion gets cold.
Oh, let's have a threesome; Dare to be bold.
It's at your job when you're feeling defeated.
One marriage down, now you've gone off and cheated.
The fact is that lust is temptations best friend.
It may be enticing, when you let it in.
Yet, when it is through using up your good name.
It will spit you back out, and it leaves you to blame.
