Eurythmics – The Devil's Just Been Using You lyrics

I heard you scratching on my back door
I could smell what you come here for
You brought your politics and glue
And your phoney piece of paper too
Yeah you'll be shaking in your shoes
When I tell everybody the news
The devil's just been using you
The devil's just been using you
The devil's just been using you
The devil's just been using you
I saw you walking all alone
Your face was hollow to the bone
You were talking to St. John about a revolution
That was the kind of trip you're on total destruction
Yeah you'll be turning in your grave
It's just no way to behave
The devil's just been using you
[Bridge:] after instrumental
Yeah you'll be shivering inside
When you realise
The devil's just been using you
The devil's just been using you (repeat)
(chant at end)
Peace will never come into your life if you believe the
Words he whispers in your mind it's just a piece of
Conciousness that hangs around to let us know that
Love is waiting to embrace us all
