Devil in Me - Kate Voegele

Far in the distance
This is the view from the other side
How did I let this pass me by?
You took me for granted,
Planted thorns in this garden of mine.
What are the chances? My hope has died.
Well please have mercy
You unnerved me
I don't deserve this pain, no.

So don't break my heart
I ain't never done
Nothing to deserve this
And I'm torn apart
You've had your fun
Do you suppose I earned it?
Do you not see
How I'm begging on my knees?
Don't speak, don't breathe,
You bring out the Devil in me.

Thinking it over,
Those were days dark as ebony nights
The end of October seemed like a life time.

I had a suspicion
But didn't want to believe you a liar.
You had a mission
To prove me right.

You took my trust
Ground it to dust
Found out I know better, yeah.

So don't break my heart
I ain't never done
Nothing to deserve this
I'm torn apart
You've had your fun
Do you suppose I earned it?
Do you not see
How I'm begging on my knees?
Don't speak, don't breathe,
You bring out the Devil -

And I don't want to feel the pain
And I don't want another day
Shackled to your ball and chain.
You're entirely to blame
And I'm so tired of explaining
The sensation of no Novicaine, yeah.

I don't have a prayer if there is
No charity in your heart
Couldn't you spare me, I've done my part?

So don't break my heart
I ain't never done
Nothing to deserve this
I'm torn apart
You've had your fun
Do you suppose I earned it?
Do you not see
How I'm begging on my knees?
Don't speak, don't breathe,
You bring out the Devil -

So don't break my heart
I ain't never done
Nothing to deserve this
I'm torn apart
You've had your fun
Do you suppose I earned it?
Do you not see
How I'm begging on my knees?
Don't speak, don't breathe,
You bring out the Devil in me.
