“The Devil is a lie”


The alarm is set for 6 and the time is 2:22
Alcohol probably isn’t the best idea but I don’t know what else to do
Tossing and turning to thoughts I know aren’t true
Trying my best to ignore all the memories of you
My demons are on a mission tonight
They know I’m alone and I thought you were the one
They say let go and do what feels right
They say what’s done isn’t really done
They say you left but you’ll be back
They say it had nothing to do with me being black
They say she’s married now but most of those fail
They say this is gonna be one Hell of a tale
But I know better
You left me when I needed you the most
I knocked on Death’s door and you said you were glad we weren’t together
But I admit I miss having the devil that close
