The Temptress' Smile
© Robbie Fulks

CH.
ITíS A BRIGHT SHINING STAR, ITS WARMTH FILLS THE BARROOM
AND THE SPELL THAT IT WEAVES ANY MAN WOULD BEGUILE
BUT WHEN THE MORNING LIGHT FALLS, AND THE DREAM COMES UNWINDING
COLD DEATH IS LEFT SHINING IN THE TEMPTRESSíS SMILE

V.1
SHE WAITS FOR YOU THERE IN A CORNER SO DIM
LIKE A SERPENT UNCOILING, EVER DRAWING YOU IN
JUST A WORD FROM HER LIPS AND YOU RUN STRAIGHT AWAY
YOUR WIFE AND YOUR CHILDREN TO SHAME AND BETRAY

REPEAT CH.

V.2
THE CURTAIN HANGS OPEN, YOU WAKE FROM HER BED
FALSE WORDS AND STALE WHISKEY RING LOUD IN YOUR HEAD
HER GRIN NOW A DEMONíS, THE BODY YOU CRAVED
GROWN FULL FROM THE SOUL THAT YOU CARELESSLY GAVE

REPEAT CH.
