POISON lyrics : "The Devil Inside"


He swears he'll love you by candlelight
And for a while things seem all right

And for a moment he hides
The devil that lies inside


And then one night in a fit of rage
The demon raises his hand in hate
And brings it down on you

There is nothing you can do

And then one night in a twist of fate

The angels bring your face to me
I cannot erase the memories
Of you lying there looking up at me


Chorus
Please take the demon from my head

Won't you please erase the memories
And ghosts who haunt my bed
I just want you to understand

That I'm gonna be the only man
To ever touch your soul
And I ain't never letting go


There's a room that lies down the hall
Where you sit and write you poems

Of love and mystery
Of faith and fantasy


And you keep a secret lover there
And a book beside an easy chair
That you read before you go to bed

To hide the memories in your head

And now I try to understand the pain

You struggle for the words to say
It don't come out right
As you lay your body down


Chorus


There's a place where you go
I've been, I'll never know
The pain you keep inside

The secrets that you hide

But I try to understand your pain

And be a shelter from the falling rain
Just maybe I feel what you're going through
Maybe I have been there too


Please take the demons from my head
Won't you please take the demons from my head

(I shall try)
