The Devil Made Me Do It

from Sweet Exile by They Call Me Rico



Yes I did it, I know it was wrong,
The pull of temptation, was just too strong,
Between good and evil, if only I knew,
There’s no going back now, nothing I can do

The devil made me say it, I could not control it,
How was I to know

The devil made me do it, I could not resist it,
A call from down below

Strange forces guide me, I’m the superstitious kind,
Everywhere I go, chaos follows behind,
Is it nature telling me, unspeakable truths,
The devil inside me, the darkest root

The devil made me feel it, I could not stop it,
It felt so right at the time

The devil made me do it, I could not believe it,
Was it really my crime

I see it in the mirror, the evil within,
Please lord deliver me, and free me from my sins,
Gypsy woman won’t you, won’t you show me a sign,
Please help me, to leave my devil behind

The devil made me need it, I could not help it,
It was stronger than me

The devil made me do it, another nail in it,
Devil won’t you let me be, let me be, let me be, let me be
