  • I don't have to mention that I saw you today
    I shone the sun into your eyes
    And you don't always have to question why there's pleasure and pain
    'Cause there's no truth for you to find

    I'm drawing perfect circles 'round the life that we could share
    And what is ours, is ours to keep
    I know the thing you want the most, you hide it over there
    Safe at the dark end of the street

    When the devil's waiting
    Down by the river calling out
    I wanna be the one to light up the dark in you
    And when the flood is over and all the love is pouring out
    I wanna be the one to light up the dark in you
    Light up the dark in you
    Light up the dark in you
    Oh, light up the dark in you

    There's so little I'm afraid of when it comes to an end
    But I can't leave you on your own
    When your chaos turns to silence and your enemies your friends
    I will run away the storm

    When the devil's waiting
    Down by the river calling out
    I wanna be the one to light up the dark in you
    And when the flood is over and all the love is pouring out
    I wanna be the one to light up the dark in you
    Light up the dark in you
    Light up the dark in you
    Light, light up the dark in you
    Light up the dark in you
    Light up the dark in you
    Light, light up the dark in you

    When the devil's waiting
    Down by the river calling out
    I wanna be the one to light up the dark in you
    And when the flood is over and all the love is pouring out
    I wanna be the one to light up the dark in you
    And when the devil's waiting
    Down by the river calling out
    I wanna be the one to light up the dark in you
    And when the flood is over and all the love is pouring out
    I wanna be the one to light up the dark in you
    Light up the dark in you
    Light up the dark in you
    Light, light up the dark in you
