Devil Wouldn’t Recognize You

Song Lyrics

As quiet as it is tonight
You’d almost think you were safe
Your eyes are full of surprises
They cannot predict my fate
Waiting underneath the stars
There’s something you should know
The angels they surround my heart
Telling me to let you go

I bet he couldn’t
I bet he couldn’t recognize
But I played right into it
Who am I to criticize
So now I’ve been through it
And you won’t even realize
You’ve fallen for your own disguise

It’s like over and over
You’re pushing me back onto the floor
I should just walk away
Over and Over
I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that’s its over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I see behind your eyes
Now I’m sober
No more intoxicating my mind

Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do, I do, I do

You’ve almost fooled yourself this time
Let all of the saints be praised
You hide your sadness behind your smile
And you keep your lost heart raised
With steps that edge along the ledge
Is much higher than it seems
But I’ve been on that ledge before
You can’t hide yourself from me

I bet he couldn’t
I bet he couldn’t recognize
But I played right into it
Who am I to criticize
Somehow I’ll get through it
And you won’t even realize
Fallen for your own disguise

It’s like over and over
You’re pushing me back onto the floor
I should just walk away
Over and Over
I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that’s its over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I see behind your eyes
Now I’m sober
No more intoxicating my mind

Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do, I do, I do

It’s like over and over
You’re pushing me back onto the floor
I should just walk away
Over and Over
I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that’s its over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I see behind your eyes
Now I’m sober
No more intoxicating my mind
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
Devil wouldn’t recognize you
Devil wouldn’t recognize you
Devil wouldn’t recognize you
But I do
Devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do
Even the devil wouldn’t recognize you
I do
