Shake It Out Lyrics

Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play



And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong
It's always darkest before the dawn



And I've been a fool and I've been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I'm always dragging that horse around



And our love is pastured such a mournful sound
Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues strong
But it's always darkest before the dawn



Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaaah



And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah



I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart
Cause I like to keep my issues strong
It's always darkest before the dawn



Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah



And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah



And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It's a final mess but it's left me so empty
It's always darkest before the dawn



Oh woah, oh woah...



And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't
So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope
It's a shot in the dark and right at my throat
Cause looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Well what the hell I'm gonna let it happen to me



Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah



And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah



Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah



And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

This song makes me feel stronger. I just ended an odd relationship where the guy is taking it too seriously, and this just helps me shake it off and forget. I love it

I feel sorry for those who do not understand this song. She is, without a doubt, a deep thinking musical artist with a stunning voice. The live version of this song on SNL - incredible...

Awesome--if you were ever in love for 28 years only to have it end--and still talk to the sob daily--you can't help but understand this song. Sometimes you have to shake it out so you can dance again.

She says its a fine romance but it's left me so undone. Not its a final mess but it's left me so empty.
