  • So what became of loving man
    Oh what became of you
    Familiar as you shook my hand
    What was it you meant to do?
    Because all could change for one
    And all, can change in this new day

    She said the devil will want you back
    And you'll never find love in an open hand
    Shut your eyes, so you see I'm there
    And know you'll always have this if you see this man

    She said the devil will want you back
    And you'll never find love in an open hand
    Shut your eyes, so you see I'm there
    And know you'll always have this if you see this man

    And no, this was not for my pride
    I know this was my time

    She said the devil will want you back
    And you'll never find love in an open hand
    Shut your eyes, so you see I'm there
    And know you'll always have this if you see this man

    So when nobody will take you back
    And you'll never find love in an open hand
    Shut your eyes, and you'll see I'm there
    You know you'll always have this if you see this man Writer/s: ALEXANDER JAMES TRIMBLE, KEVIN STEPHEN BAIRD, SAMUEL MATTHEW HALLIDAY
