A Little Squeeze


With apologies to Difford and Tilbrook...

I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste
A flannel for my face
Pyjamas, a hairbrush
New shoes and a case
I said to my reflection
Let's get out of this place
Past 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 {SQUEEZE} of another {COLOR}
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on
Now that you have gone {PINK}
There's no other
Tempted by the {SQUEEZE} of another {COLOR}
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I'm at the car park,
the airport
The baggage carousel
The people keep on crowding
I'm wishing i was well
I said it's no occasion
It's no story i could tell

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

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 {SQUEEZE} of another {COLOR}
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on
Now that you have gone {PINK}
There's no other
Tempted by the {SQUEEZE} of another {COLOR}
Tempted but the truth is discovered

Will yours be BLACK, PINK, or (I think there are 7 left somewhere in the world!) GOLDEN?

Aren't you just a little tempted?
