Description

Listen & Peruse

Irresistible

From the musical PEARL by Katie Kring

I AM STRONGER THAN PLEASURE I am stronger than pleasure
No longer drawn to smoldering
I can resist him
I am stronger
Than I used to be
Back when we

Pain has taught me to be docile
No longer drawn to wandering
I love my daughter
That is stronger
Than just me
But he

Is the smell of winter
He’s the taste of cranberries
The touch of oak bark on my skin
He’s the pain of living
He’s the fear of dying
He’s the burning, the burning, the burning, the burning
The irresistible fire within

Now I’m a mother
Stern and loving
No longer drawn to tantalizing
I can resist him
I must be stronger
To protect my family
From the smell of gunpowder
The taste of poison
The scratch of holly on my skin
He’s the pain of living
He’s the fear of dying
He’s the burning, the burning, the burning, the burning
The irresistible fire within

I can resist the irresistible
I must resist the irresistible
I can resist the irresistible
I can resist the
I must resist the

Smell of sweat
And the taste of violence
The touch of his lips on my skin
He’s the pain of passion
And the fear of dying
He’s the burning, the burning, the burning, the burning
The irresistible, irresistible
I can resist the irresistible fire within
