Almost Persuaded - Lyrics

Last night all alone in a bar
I met a girl
Drinking her in
She had ruby red lips
And coal black hair
And eyes that would tear any man

And she came
Sat down at
My table
And there she placed
Her soft hands in mine
Well I found myself wanting
To kiss her
For temptation was flowing like wine

And I was almost persuaded
To strip myself from my pride
Almost persuaded
To push my conscience aside

Then we danced
And he whispered
I need you
Let me take you away
From here
And be your man
And then I looked
In his eyes
And I saw it
The reflection
Of my wedding band

And I was almost persuaded
To let strange lips lead me on
Almost persuaded
But your sweet love
Made me stop
And go home

Almost persuaded
But your sweet love
Made me stop and go
Home
