Song Title: The Devil Inside
He swears he'll love you by candlelight
And for a while things seem all right
And for a moment he hides
the devil that lies inside

And then one night in a fit of rage
The demon raises his hand in hate
And brings it down on you
There is nothing you can do

And then one night in a twist of fate
The angels bring your face to me
I cannot erase the memories
Of you lying there looking up at me

[Chorus:]
Please take the demon from my head
Won't you please erase the memories
And ghosts who haunt my bed
I just want you to understand
That I'm gonna be the only man
To ever touch your soul
And I ain't never letting go

There's a room that lies down the hall
Where you sit and write you poems
of love and mystery
of faith and fantasy

And you keep a secret lover there
And a book beside an easy chair
That you read before you go to bed
To hide the memories in your head

And now I try to understand the pain
You struggle for the words to say
It don't come out right
As you lay your body down

[Chorus:]
There's a place where you go
I've been, I'll never know
The pain you keep inside
The secrets that you hide

But I try to understand your pain
And be a shelter from the falling rain
Just maybe I feel what you're going through
Maybe I have been there too

Please take the demons from my head
Won't you please take the demons from my head
(I shall try)
repeat
