DEVIL ON MY SHOULDER

I don’t wanna face the day

But I’m left without a choice

I’d love to turn the other way

And listen to the voice

Inside my head

That speaks to me

In such a tempting kind of way

Instead I keep on driving on

As if I have a choice

Devil’s on my shoulder again

Whispering words that I don’t wanna hear

I watch the clock tick on and on

Same old shit, different day

Staring out on crystal skies

Tinted shades of grey

My best laid plans have gone to waste

The upturned fickle finger of fate

I close my eyes and my mind drifts

To thoughts of what may be

Devil’s on my shoulder again 

Whispering words that I don’t wanna hear

It’s a choice that we all have to make 

To live each day or keep on
Making the same mistake

And for once in my life I’d like to heed the words

And see what lies behind the unopened door

But I’m torn between head and heart

Between you and me I yearn for so much more

I don’t wanna face the day

But I’m left without a choice

I’d love to turn the other way

And listen to the voice

Inside my head

That calls to me

In such a tempting kind of way

Instead I keep on driving

As if I have a choice
