That has always had me hearing the lyric "it's just that evil eye has got you in its sway". "Sway" being under a spell or in a hypnotic trance thus the eye is the more obvious culprit. I have never heard "demon life" but every lyric page on the 'Net contains the same lyrics and how this happens I do not know. I find wrong lyrics all the time. I have been a musician since the 1960's and learning lyrics from a recording can be difficult especially Jagger. Someone who has never heard the song can usually pick up on a lyric I cannot hear correctly since a perception becomes a reality. Hear it wrong once and it takes root. "Evil eye" makes much more sense. The "demon" I think is there only because the Stones reputation as "devil worshipers" is too ingrained although erroneous. "Evil eye" is and has been a common expression in our language for many years. "Demon life"? Never heard it before now.
