Tempting Fate

thou shalt not tempt fate
you say holier than thou
as though it were
the eleventh commandment
as though you have never
done anything daring in life

no, tempting fate is not
only for the gods or the fool-hardy
now is all we have anyway
let's take the risk and
fall in love if you will
oh, to feel cupid's dart smart
right in the middle of my heart

what could be more exhilirating
than the feeling of falling,
falling, falling so deeply in love
but no, all you want to talk  about
is the wretched consequences
of tempting fate
