lyrics

Lately I have noticed
The way that you hang around
Hidin’ out beneath the back of my brain
I’d kinda hoped you’d left town

Well I can tell right now that you ain’t never gonna leave
and sure as hell you ain’t gonna leave me be…

Guess it wasn’t so long ago
longer than you might like
I can still feel your touch on my skin
the traces in my mind

Well I can hear every lie that you whispered so sweet
and every laugh when I said I could leave…

You hold hands with the devil,
He wants you to stay.
Can leave any time,
is just words that you say.
One thing you’ll notice
he’s there everyday
You hold hands with the devil,
you don’t just walk away.

There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
to cut you out of my veins
So why do I start to thinking about you
when things go right for a change

And in the middle of the night when I whisper your name
there ain’t no one here but my self left to blame…

You hold hands with the devil,
He wants you to stay.
Can leave any time,
is just words that you say.
One thing you’ll notice
he’s there everyday
You hold hands with the devil,
you don’t just walk away.

You hold hands with the devil,
you don’t just walk away,

you don’t just walk away.
