Madonna – Devil Pray lyrics

[Verse 1]
Take my sins and wash them away
Teach me how to pray
I've been stranded here in the dark
Take these walls away
I've been swimming in the ocean
Til I'm almost drowned
Give me something I can believe in
Teach me how to pray

[Pre-Chorus]
And we can do drugs, and we can smoke weed, and we can drink whiskey
Yeah, we can get high, and we can get stoned
And we can sniff glue, and we can do E, and we can drop acid
Forever be lost with no way home

[Chorus]
Yeah we can run, and we can hide
But we won't find the answers
If you go down, then you'll get help along the way
But if you wanna save your soul, then we should travel up together
And make the devil pray

[Break 1]
(Oh, don't save us) (x3)
Devil's here to fool ya
(Oh, don't save us) (x3)
Devil's here to fool ya
Ooh, save us (x3)
Devil's here to fool ya
Ooh, save us (x3)
Devil's here to fool ya

[Verse 2]
Mother Mary, can't you help me?
Cause I'm gone astray
Oh, the angels that were around me
Have a-flown away
The ground beneath my feet's getting warmer
Lucifer is near
Holding on, but I'm getting weaker
Watch me disappear

[Pre-Chorus]
And we can do drugs, and we can smoke weed, and we can drink whiskey
Yeah, we can get high, and we can get stoned
And we can sniff glue, and we can do E, and we can drop acid
Forever be lost with no way home

[Chorus]
Yeah we can run, and we can hide
But we won't find the answers
If you go down, then you'll get help along the way
But if you wanna save your soul, then we should travel up together
And make the devil pray

[Break 2] (x3)
Ooh, ooh, sing hallelujah
Ooh, save my soul
Ooh-ooh, the devil's here to fool ya
Until my story's told
