The Devil Knows Me Well

lyrics

Despite the things
That we expect
We are still subject to the test
Concerning conduct and intent
Integrity and self-respect,
I'm not a martyr,
I'm not a saint -
You're justified in your complaint
I'm in the desert
And I am prone
I got no place that I call home...

But I see my girl again
Then I see my girl again
When I see my girl again
I better see my girl again...

If you unwrap me you will find
A tag attached to my behind
That warns the Devil knows me well -
I got a credit card in Hell
I got a loan I've taken out
I don't know I can repay
And all his goons
Are on my scent
But I can make 'em go away

When I see my girl again
When I see my girl again
When I see my girl again
I better see my girl again

In summary,
I do declare,
That I have dabbled here and there
I've lost the rope,
I took the pill
I've made mistakes no drink can kill
But I doth protest
I am strong
And I am never gone for long
I'm coming back like William Shatner;
There's no before, there's only after,
I'm coming in like Saracens -
I'm coming back to make amends

Then I see my girl again
Then I see my girl again
Then I see my girl again
I better see my girl again...
