I swear I met success, we lived together shortly
A success is like lust, she's good for the touch
She's good for the moment, but she’s never enough
He’s had some good achievements, the effects being sweet but short lived.
Success had great qualities but it wasn’t going to provide long term happiness, Victory came up trumps with high desirability making ‘her’ the more attractive choice.
