Dancing With The Devil

Set It Off


Life's too short to be dancing with the devil
Life's too short to be dancing with the devil
You best sleep with a blanket and a shuffle
'Cause life's too short to be dancing with the devil

Where am I?
My hands are tied
Turn on the lights
And I see you standing
Over me
It's hard to breathe
I can't believe
That you’d do this to me

Years of us building the trust up
No love was ever enough
I'm foolish to think we were friends
It's funny how it ends

You know
When times get tough, you always give up
I know
Your smoking gun's the tip of your tongue
You take your aim to point the blame
It's time we let it go
So save your lies, behind those eyes
You're a devil in disguise

Life's too short to be dancing with the devil
Life's too short to be dancing with the devil
You best sleep with a blanket and a shuffle
'Cause life's too short to be dancing with the devil

Now it's time
To pay the price
No playing nice
When you live so selfish
Have a drink
And make a scene
Embarrass me
'Cause you're lost and hopeless

Years of us building the trust up
No love was ever enough
I'm foolish to think we were friends
It's funny how it ends

You know
When times get tough, you always give up
I know
Your smoking gun's the tip of your tongue
You take your aim to point the blame
It's time we let it go
So save your lies, behind those eyes
You're a devil in disguise

Life's too short to be dancing with the devil
Life's too short to be dancing with the devil
You best sleep with a blanket and a shuffle
'Cause life's too short to be dancing with the devil

You try to act as if you're saving me
But you wouldn’t cut the rope if it was hanging me
I’m sick of people saying: What you sow, you reap
'Cause I’ve been counting down the minutes of that, so to speak
Think of all the hours and hours of grind
That would it turned into sour findings
As I wonder if our resigning is becoming the silver lining
But I’m not a coward, I’m fighting
'Cause if they're the meat, then I’m biting
Go ahead ignoring and smiling
'Cause I'm climbing ’til I let you know

You know
When times get tough, you always give up
I know
Your smoking gun's the tip of your tongue
You take your aim to point the blame
It's time we let it go
So save your lies, behind those eyes
You're a devil in disguise

Life's too short to be dancing with the devil
Life's too short to be dancing with the devil
You best sleep with a blanket and a shuffle
'Cause life's too short to be dancing with the devil
