SHAME THE DEVIL


Only saw in you what I wanted to
Same as all the fools before me
I wanted you to be the missing piece of me
A happy ending to my story
But you were laughing at me from the start
All you wanted was to break my heart..

Shame the devil but don’t lie to me
‘Cause I know who you are
Shame the devil, girl, but set me free
You’re pushing me too far - yeah
Don’t push me, girl..

On a bed of lies you looked into my eyes
You could see that I was mated
You led me to believe that you wanted me
And that you and I were fated
And I still wonder - but I don’t know why
All you wanted was to see me cry..

Shame the devil but don’t lie to me
‘Cause I know who you are
Shame the devil, girl, but set me free
You’re pushing me too far
Shame the devil if you still know how
If you know right from wrong
Shame the devil ‘cause it’s over now
Tomorrow I’ll be gone..

(Tomorrow I’ll be gone)
I’ll be gone
(‘Cause I held on too long)
Too long, too long
(Now I will be strong)
I will be strong
Shame the devil..

If you won’t confess - I can only guess
How you came to be so broken
And you will be alone - heart and soul of stone
While the truth remains unspoken
And I can’t change you - I won’t even try
But if you ever had a soul inside

Shame the devil..
