Here’s a story--
I took a country ride one day
When the rivers froze and the sun began to grey
It was rainin’
I lost control and hit a tree
Well when I looked up
Saw a house in front of me
Well she let me in
There was magic in her eyes
I wish I could have seen through her disguise

And you...
Sharpen your horns
Light up the night
Twisting your tongue
And it leaves you up in the air
Sharpen your horns
Light up the night
Twisting your tongue
And it leaves you up in the air

Well she’s wearing
A green crystal round her neck
Yes, it helps her with her concentration
And she’s chanting
Her words are healing my cracked head
But the meaning defies explanation

And you...
Sharpen your horns
Light up the night
Twisting your tongue
And it leaves you up in the air
Sharpen your horns
Light up the night
Twisting your tongue
And it leaves you up in the air

Maid of fire
I gave my life to her
Made a pact I had to keep
I sold my soul to her
Tricked by a devil girl
I sold my soul to her

Time is runnin’ down
I could be crazy!
Man, I sold my soul for seven years of fame
But I’m lookin’ back
And I’m thinkin’ maybe
The mark you make
The claim you stake
These are the things remembered when you’re gone

Sharpen your horns
Light up the night
Twisting your tongue
And it leaves you up in the air
