              A               E/G#          F#m          F#m7/E
I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste, a flannel for my face,
 B7/D#                     Dm7
Pyjamas, a hairbrush, new shoes, and a case,
   Am7                              Em7                  F/G
I said to my reflection, "Let's get out of this place--------!"
G   C         D7                           F
   Past the church and the steeple, the laundry on the hill,
    A                           G/D          Gaug/D#     Am7/E
Billboards and the buildings, memories of it still keep calling,
      D                Am/E        F7/D#            D       D/C
And calling, but for - get it all,        I know I will---!


   A            A/G          D/F#     D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G            D/F#     D               B7
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered,     what's been going on,
             Bm7/E                       A     A/G
And now that you have gone, there's no other,
  D/F#           D            A      A/G
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
  D/F#             D              Bm      
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!

   Dsus4    A             E/G#         F#m           F#m7/E
I'm at the car park, the airport, the baggage carou - sel,
    B7/D#                            Dm7
The people keep on grabbing, ain't wishing I was well,
  Am7                               Em7                F/G
I said ,"It's no occasion, it's no story I can tell!"
G   C       D7                      F
    At my bedside, empty pocket, a foot without a sock,
      A                        G/D           Gaug/D#    
Your body gets much closer, I fumble for the clock,
     Am7/E                D       Am7/E  F7/D#                 D   D/C
A - larmed by the se - duction, I wish...      that it would stop!


   A            A/G          D/F#     D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G            D/F#     D               B7
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered,     what's been going on,
             Bm7/E                       A     A/G
And now that you have gone, there's no other,
  D/F#           D            A      A/G
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
  D/F#             D              Bm      
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!

   Dsus4    A            A/G        F#m           F#m7/E
I bought a novel, some perfume, a fortune all for you,
B7/D#                                  Dm7
       But it's not my concience that hates to be untrue,
   Am7                              Em7                   F/G     G C
I asked of my reflection, "Tell me, what is there to do-----?"


   A            A/G          D/F#     D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A            A/G              D/F#    D
Tempted but the truth is dis - covered,
              B7                  Bm7/E                        A   A/G
What's been going on, and now that you have gone, there's no other,
  D/F#           D            A      A/G
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
  D/F#             D              Bm     
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!


          A               A/G          D/F#     D
Huhh!  Tempted... by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G             D/F#    D
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!

   A            A/G          D/F#     D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G             D/F#    D
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!

Tempted but the truth is dis - covered,

What's been going on, and now that you have gone, there's no other,
  D/F#           D            A      A/G
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,

Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!
