about

'Temptress' is the first single of the Souls For Trade EP by Chris Ward. The full EP, released on the 29th December 2010, contains three additional tracks - 'Souls For Trade', 'Best Served Cold' and 'Leeches On Society'.

This song tells the story of a man seduced and then enslaved by a woman of supernatural power. It was originally written in October 2009, near Halloween, and was inspired by Kate Beckinsale in the film ‘Underworld’.

lyrics

Verse 1
Of all the creatures I have seen
A temptress found on Halloween
Beauty of an angel’s daughter
She led sane men to the slaughter
Of all the creatures I have seen
She surely was the dark lord’s queen
Had no resistance she took control
She stole my heart and took my soul

Chorus
She took it, she stole it
I hated the day
She learned me, she turned me
And now it’s okay
She took it, she stole it
Then showed me her way
She learned me, she turned me
And now I’m here to stay

Verse 2
Felt the frenzy felt the fear
Evil temptress draw me near
Can’t react but can’t complain
Eternity it’s in my veins
Felt the frenzy felt the fear
Sexy hot breath in my ear
Can’t react but can’t complain
She drained my body I’m going insane

Verse 3
Now I’m a creature in her scene
She is my bride of Halloween
At her side when she takes flight
Together we will rule the night
Now I’m a creature in her scene
I’m not the man I could have been
No longer bound by mortal laws
Just a disciple to her cause

Repeat Chorus
