Every new face
Every happy mistake
Is only ever equal to
The number of bonds I break

There was a time
I thought you could be mine
But I was searching for
A pot of gold you didn’t want me to find

Chorus

But I’ve made my peace
There’s no place I call my home
The devil knows my name
I was born to walk alone

I have made my peace
There’s no place I call my home
The devil knows me by name
I was born to walk alone

Every time I wake
With every new day
There comes another chance to
Get up and walk away

I wish I could help you
Help you win your wars
But these words are my truth
I know they’ll never be yours

Chorus

I have made my peace
There’s no place I call my home
The devil knows my name
I was born to walk alone

I have made my peace
There’s no place I call my home
The devil knows me by name
I was born to walk alone

Thought I needed something
Thought that I could be your fool
But after all
Turns out my fire doesn’t need your fuel
I’m kept company
By whisperings of the unknown
These choices are my own

Chorus

I have made my peace
There’s no place I call my home
The devil knows my name
I was born to walk alone

I have made my peace
There’s no place I call my home
The devil knows me by name
I was born to walk alone
