"I Can't Resist" was inspired by a visit to the Museum of Sex.


This is the third installment of a new song project: Exhibit.

Every Tuesday for 8 weeks I will spend time in a New York City museum. Within one week's time, I will compose and record a song inspired by the visit.



Time has told me there's not enough of it
for me to make a comprehensive list
of the things you do that make me lose my grip

Whether you are wearing shirts and pants
or performing your naked sexy dance
we both know that I don't stand a chance

If you were the army I'd be the first one to enlist
I can't resist

I try hard to remain in control
but I cannot be held accountable
for those things you do that cut me to my soul

Like when I catch you reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
I can't resist


from EXHIBIT, track released December 18, 2012
