Fighting Temptation

Fighting Temptation 

Harsh winter falls 
Oh, how I yearning for your touch
for a call with so much love 
Yearning to be near you 
but you're so far away,

oh, how this brakes my heart 
while time slips 
and creates a difference state of mind
creates desires of our past
this yearning temptation is running 
through my mind 
is a strong craving,

I yearn to see better days
but all I have is the pains 
my days of winters gray 
my nights all I do is cry for you
without you in my life 
I feel so lost,

You are my temptation
that raps around my soul 
that whispers things in my dreams
your words are always in my ears
I call out your name in that sensual tone
when I wake it was all wrong,

One day you will be home 
I fight the urge of happiness 
my mind tells me to let all we have go
then one night temptation comes again 
touching you in places I already been
that is when I started to cry out your name,

Because I know you are in the gave
but old temptation always brings me back to you
keeping me so confused
it knows exactly what it is to do
august was a time we spent loving each other
but that is all we had and all we needed
was each other,

But now I'm so alone
filling empty without you 
temptation is always around 
where I crave you kiss
where your passion of warmth plays games 
in my mind another time,

this old temptation knows 
what it is I was needing the most 
my mind is dripping in pure desire 
hungering for you love 
yearning for your kiss 
that makes cold December sweet,

temptation I must let this pass
but I can't fight you anymore
I'm yielding to your love 
its even at my door.
