Bad Influence

I'm just a bad influence
I tempt you with lies
Not too hard to tell
Just look into my I's
You cannot resist me
That's no big surprise
Feel your heart quicken
And feel the heat rise
A kiss on your neck
A touch on your thighs
You think that I'm different
Not like other guys
But a thought is ticking
Behind those quick sighs
You're wondering now
Was this really so wise?
As lightning starts raging
Across leaden skies

  15. Hi Eric
    I liked the doubts that are making it presence felt after one is already taken a step forward...

    'But a thought is ticking
    Behind those quick sighs'

    ... I like the sensuality in the words too..
    Thanks for sharing...
