Handsome Devil

by Michael Channing

you got a pocketful of poisonous sweets
and more than a few lies to tell
i got starry eyes and a sweet tooth
and a perfectly good soul to sell

so give me a ride in your car
take me as far as you please
though god was fine for his time
only you bring me to my knees

you're a handsome devil
and you make me wanna come
closer to feel
the heat of your skin
and the sin in your eyes
the haunt of your touch
and the hush of your sigh

corrupt me
damn me to hell
don't tempt me
'cause i already fell

mother always told me
let god be your light
but the throbbing of your engine's moan
feels so right

so slide me closer to you
and use me however you need
though angels have tried, the devil, i find
makes me want to believe

you're a handsome devil
and you make me wanna come
closer to feel
the heat of your skin
and the sin in your eyes
the haunt of your touch
and the hush of your sigh

corrupt me
damn me to hell
don't tempt me
'cause i already fell
