Temptation

Before the release of his first single “Thrilla in Manila”, singer-songwriter Greyson Chance previewed his new stylistic voice within his powerful ballad “Temptation”. Released in January 2014, simply as a promo track, the song rose to the likings of fans and critics. Composed at a writing camp in Bali Indonesia, Chance uses the lower tones in his vocal to demonstrate the pain and hurt one can feel from temptation. Infusing jazz and pop melodies, “Temptation” truly sticks out as interesting.

The song can be streamed on SoundCloud below.

Lyrics

Hey, you old familiar way
I’ve been down your road before
You are such a beautiful kiss
Of course, I want more

It can all come falling down, at the hands of fate
But who am I to decide, where the heart lies?

Don’t let me down
I’m happy now
Temptation don’t come back around
You seem to come
When she’s not the one
And she, might be

Hey, lets take another drive
We can keep on going if you like
Hey, lets take it easy

It’s all so perfect and it’s too early to tell
But I know that old temptation too well

Don’t let me down
I’m happy now
Temptation don’t come back around
You seem to come
When she’s not the one
And she, might be

You’re the kind of girl that I’ve been searching for
I think but I shouldn’t be so sure
Who I am to question it, no more?
No more, no more

  7. Greyson, you are truly amazing. I adore your voice! I still remember seeing your cover of “Paparazzi” by Lady Gaga on TV, and I still listen to your album. You need to make sure to come back to Chicago soon! I’d love to meet you.
