Like the hopeful dreams of many
He had everything and more
A lovely wife and children
All the things worth fighting for

He knows, there was still
Still, something missing in his life

Though he promised to be faithful
He was good at telling lies
He had an eye for young girls
He would steal some on the side
Oh no, he just could not be satisfied

It's a game of all or nothing
There is nowhere safe to run
Someone might just pull the trigger
'Cause temptation is a gun

He met her at a night club
On the other side of town
Somehow he could not resist her
She's the best he'd ever found
She knows, she found her ticket to the other side

It's a game of all or nothing
There is nowhere safe to run
Someone might just pull the trigger
'Cause temptation is a gun

His foolish ways seem harmless but his world was so divine
'Cause at home they know his secrets they've heard all his alibis
As he tries to face his feelings, he can't justify his crimes
Now comes the final ending
Of the dreams he once held sacred deep inside
He can kiss it all goodbye

It's a game of all or nothing
There is nowhere safe to run
Someone might just pull the trigger
'Cause temptation is a gun

Oh, mmm, yeah baby
Oh temptation is a gun, yeah
Temptation is a gun
All or nothing, all or nothing
