  • I won't act until she's gone the way of violence
    Stare at pictures that I'm hiding in their attic

    How do you know,
    How could you have another?

    There's a man who got caught in a trick match
    And I never see her lips being kissed on

    How do you know,
    How could you have another?

    Maybe now it's harder
    If it was 40 years ago
    I would need it to sleep over
    Between the devil and the deed

    But I can't live without
    her, I got nothing else
    I could never let
    her get out of my hands

    You could never handle if she was into magic
    You could never stand it if she couldn't speak your language

    She wouldn't like this again, mistaken for your whole plan
    Shake it at your big fat head

    Maybe here it's harder
    And it's a backwards country
    Where you need to sleep together
    I'm between the devil and the deed Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
