  • Some say I got devil
    Some say I got angel
    But I'm just a girl in trouble
    I don't think I'm in danger
    Don't think I'm in danger
    No, I know I'm not in danger
    But some have tried to sell me
    All kinds of things to save me
    From hurting like a woman, and crying like a baby
    Something like a woman, crying like a baby

    And all the things that I have seen
    Qualify me for a part in your dream
    Qualify me for this dream

    And though I'd like to tell it
    Exactly how I feel it
    Somehow the music
    Hides it and conceals it
    Hides it and conceals it
    Oh, it hides

    And all the things that I have seen
    Can be hidden in a part of my dream
    Gonna hide it in my dream

    Some say I've got devil
    Some say I got angel
    But I'm just this girl in trouble
    I don't think I'm in danger
    No I'm not in danger
    No, I know I'm not in danger Writer/s: Melanie Safka
