I always knew you were a bad boy
I used to think that it was cool
You took me down just like a Rob Roy
But now I'm coming after you

Run, Devil, Run Run Devil, Run Run
Run Devil Devil Run Run

I never knew about your red horns
I never saw your evil scars
You used to be what I would live for
But then you went and stabbed my heart

The promises that you promised
Are about as real as an air guitar
So watch your back cuz imma steal your car

Chorus:
You better run, run, run, run, run
Cause there's gonna be some hell to play
You better run, run, run, run, run
And that's the only thing I'm gonna say, hey
I wish I'd known right from the start
That I was dancing with the dark
You better run
Devil, Run, Run, Devil, Run Run
Run Devil Devil Run Run

Now that your living with a vampire
You better get yourself a gun
I'll make ya sing just like a boys chior
I'll string you up to have some fun

Run, Devil, Run Run, Devil, Run Run
Run Devil Devil Run Run

Repeat Chorus

Run Devil, Run Run, Devil, Run Run
Run Devil, Devil, Run Run

I'm throwing the trash, clearing the junk
I'm firing the cannon, your gonna get sunk
You better sail off to the seven seas
There's not enough room for you and for me
(Once again if you would please,
There's not enough room for you and for me)

Repeat Chorus

Run Devil, Run Run, Devil Run Run
Run Devil Devil Run Run'

    I feel that this song is about a girl falling for a bad boy and she thought it was cool at first until she saw the dark side to him, hence he metaphorically "stabbed her heart" meaning that he really hurt her. And now she is seeking revenge by the citation "you better run, cause there's gonna be some hell to play. " meaning that she's now gonna hurt him.
