Lyrics

Well ya sit there lookin' so hot tonight
ya sit there lookin' so uh oh cool
I can tell your not the staying kind
but honey I ain't no one's fool
and me I like the comfort of the temporary kind
Me I like the comfort of the temporary kind

Well there ain't no doubt about it baby
oh your love could fill me up
So whatcha say ya come along with me
and honey show me what you got
'cause midnight is approaching and baby it's hot
at the stroke a 12 honey, ready or not

How do ya feel about abandonment ?
This time next year I might be back again
Ya know I like your sweet kisses
but I don't need no promises
no no no no no no no no
Promises baby no no
'Cause promises will only make us cry
Nothin's gonna come between my black diamond
baby and I

Don't get too close or you'll scorch yourself
Don't get too close you'll fry
Ain't nothin' here but a little fun
goin' down between you and I
Me I make a good lover
to the not so permanent kind
Don't ya think you're gonna change me baby
Don't ya think you're gonna save my soul
This woman has seen alot a road
and, well, it's made me just a little bit cold
So if you wanna love me honey you've been told
Yeah, I'm lookin' for a lover with a damn brave soul

And can a heart have a home ?
And are ya strong when your alone ?
And do ya want white picket fences ?
'Cause I don't make those promises
No no no no no no no no
Promises baby no no

And how they love to love the lover they can't have
Have we all gone crazy baby ?
Have we all gone mad ?
Have we all gone crazy baby oh ?
Have we all gone mad ?
