Song Meaning
Verse 1
I knew that it was wrong
I didn't have a doubt
I was dying to get back home
And you were starting out
Verse 2
I said I best be moving on
You said, we have all day
You smiled at me like I was young it
Took my breath away
Verse 3
Your crazy fragrance all around
Your secrets all in view
My lost, my lost was saying found
My don't was saying do
Verse 4
Let's keep it on the level
When I walked away from you
I turned my back on the devil
Turned my back on the angel too
Verse 5
They ought to give my heart a medal
For letting go of you
When I turned my back on the devil
Turned my back on the angel too
Verse 6
Now I'm living in this temple
Where they tell you what to do
I'm old and I've had to settle
On a different point of view
Verse 7
I was fighting with temptation
But I didn't want to win
A man like me don't like to see
Temptation caving in
Verse 8
Your crazy fragrance all around
Your secrets all in view
My lost, my lost was saying found
My don't was saying do
Verse 9
Let's keep it on the level
When I walked away from you
I turned my back on the devil
Turned my back on the angel too
Verse 10
They ought to give my heart a medal
For letting go of you
When I turned my back on the devil
Turned my back on the angel too
Verse 11
They ought to give my heart a medal
For letting go of you
When I turned my back on the devil
Turned my back on the angel too
