The Devil To Pay Lyrics

Go on, girl, take your chances
See how long you can go on from man to man
I can read the lines between your stolen glances
And I know it's time to fold this losing hand
'cause you're drawn to the flame
By the thrill and the shame
Of the cheating game they taught you how to play
But there's a price to that high lie you're living
And you've still got the devil to pay

Join your friends, while you got 'em
'cause you know you're getting older every day
You can't wait to let 'em take you to the bottom
And I'm getting tired of standing in your way
But when you hit the ground
Don't go lookin' around
For the pieces of the love you threw away
That's just a part of the high cost of leaving
And you've still got the devil to pay.

You've been flying so high for so long that you lied
To yourself now, most of all
Baby, all that you needed from me was the freedom to fall.

When your bright lights are gone
You'll be standing alone
And forsaken in the naked light of day
And you'll know that it's all over but the dying
And you've still got the devil to pay.
