Between The Devil & Me lyrics

(harley allen/carson chamberlin)

This world can take you by the hand
And tempt the soul of any man
But you can choose your path
Theres two roads you can take
One way is right and one is wrong
The flesh is weak but love is strong
And shes all I see
Vetween the devil and me

The gates of hell swing open
Wide invitin me to stop inside
Ill be your friend he calls
Again, I know its him
The flames are spreadin everywhere
But through the smoke
I see her there
Shes all I see
Between the devil and me

I hold her in my arms tonight
So safe and warm I close my eyes
And a cool breeze blows
cross our bodies in the dark
Outside her reach is my concern
Somewhere I know a fire burns
And shes all I see
Between the devil and me

The gates of hell swing open
Wide invitin me to stop inside
Ill be your friend he calls
Again, I know its him
The flames are spreadin everywhere
But through the smoke
I see her there
Shes all I see
Between the devil and me

The gates of hell swing open
Wide invitin me to step inside
Shes all I see
Between the devil and me
