A Soft Seduction

David Byrne

The words of love

Are not enough

Though sweet as wine

As thick as blood

Passionless moments

And we are homeless

Out on the street

But life is cool

And things aren't bad

Got what he wants

Lost what he had

He soon adjusted

And got accustomed

To these new ways

Blame God, how can you lose?

Singing such sweet Rhythm and Blues

Strange days, she said to me

Being in love ? don't mean you're free

But night reveals

What daytime hides

Who lingers on

Who sleeps outside

A soft seduction

A strong attraction

Somewhere downtown

A junkie's song

A dancer's knees

The laws of chance

Strange as it seems

Take us exactly

Where we most likely

Need to be
