The Devil Don't Sleep

Album: The Devil Don't Sleep (2017)
  • Lord knows the devil don't sleep
    He never shuts his eyes
    You never hear him creepin', yeah

    Battle scars on my heart
    Lord knows this war ain't over, no
    It's just gettin' started
    Just when you thought you had him beat
    He's on your shoulder
    He's in your ear, he's whisperin'
    Lyin' again, and again, and again
    You tell yourself he'll leave you alone
    You turn your back, and brother man, it's on

    Lord knows the devil don't sleep
    He never shuts his eyes
    You never hear him creepin'
    Heaven knows he's hell bent on me
    Shackles and chains, thank God that He can break me free
    'Cause Lord knows the devil don't sleep

    He's at your door, don't let him in
    He'll lie, he'll steal, he'll kill, he'll win
    Just ask me, I've been there
    All you'll have left is a desperate prayer
    You pray to God, He'll save your soul
    Like He has a thousand times before

    Lord knows the devil don't sleep
    He never shuts his eyes
    You never hear him creepin'
    Heaven knows he's hell bent on me
    Shackles and chains, thank God that He can break me free
    'Cause Lord knows the devil don't sleep
    The devil don't sleep, no

    Lord knows the devil don't sleep
    He never shuts his eyes
    You never hear him creepin'
    Heaven knows he's hell bent on me
    Shackles and chains, thank God that He can break me free

    Lord knows the devil don't sleep
    He never shuts his eyes
    You never hear him creepin'
    Heaven knows he's hell bent on me
    Shackles and chains, thank God that He can break me free
    'Cause Lord knows the devil don't sleep

    The devil don't sleep
    The devil don't sleep, yeah Writer/s: Brantley Gilbert, Michael Dulaney, Sean Mcconnell
