as quiet as it is tonight
you'd almost think you were safe
your eyes, are full of surprises
they cannot predict my fate
waiting underneath the stars
there something you should know
the angels they surround my heart
telling me to let you go

i barely couldn't
i barely couldn't recognize
but i played right into it
who am i to criticise
somehow i'll get through it
and you won't even realize
falling through your own disguise

it's like over and over
you're pushing me right down to the floor
i should just walk away
over and over
i keep on coming back for more
i play into your fantasy
now that it's over
you can lie to me right through your smile
i see behind your eyes
now i'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind

even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do, i do, i do

you almost fooled yourself this time
that all the saints be praised
you hide your sadness behind your smile
and you keep your lost heartbreaks
the steps that edge along the ledge
it's much higher than it seems
but i've been on that ledge before
you can't hide yourself from me

i barely couldn't
i barely couldn't recognize
i still played right into it
who am i to criticise
somehow i'll get through it
and you won't even realize
falling through your own disguise

it's like over and over
you're pushing me right down to the floor
i should just walk away
over and over
i keep on coming back for more
i play into your fantasy
now that it's over
you can lie to me right through your smile
i see behind your eyes
now i'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind

even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do, i do, i do

it's like over and over
you're pushing me right down to the floor
i should just walk away
over and over
i keep on coming back for more
i play into your fantasy
now that it's over
you can lie to me right through your smile
i see behind your eyes
now i'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind

even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do
even the devil wouldn't recognize you
i do, i do, i do

    Devil Wouldn't Recognize You

    It's quiet as it is tonight
    You almost think you were safe
    Your eyes are full of surprises
    As they cannot predict my fate

    Waiting underneath the stars
    There's something you should know
    The angels they surround my heart
    Telling me to let you go

    I barely couldn't, I barely couldn't recognize
    but I've forgotten with who am I to criticize
    Somehow I picked the way that you won't even realize
    Going through your own disguise

    * It's like over and over
    You pushing me right down to the floor
    I should just walk away
    Over and over
    I keep on coming backfor more
    I play into your fantasy
    Now that's it over you can lie to me
    Right through your smile
    I see behind your eyes
    Now it's over
    No more intoxicating my mind

    ** Even the devil wouldn't recognize you
    I do
    Even the devil wouldn't recognize you
    I do
    Even the devil wouldn't recognize you
    I do
    Even the devil wouldn't recognize you
    I do, I do, I do

    You almost fooled yourself this time
    That all the saints be graced
    You hide your sadness behind your smile and
    You keep your lost heart graced
    The steps that edge on the ledge
    It's much higher than it seems
    I've been on that ledge before
    You can't hide yourself from me

    I barely couldn't, I barely couldn't recognize
    I still play right into who am I to criticize
    Somehow I picked the way that you won't even realize
    Going through your own disguise

    * Repeat

    ** repeat
    Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh !Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

    * Repeta

    Even the devil wouldn't recognize you
    I do
    Devil wouldn't recognize you
    I do
    Devil wouldn't recognize you
    I do
    And devil wouldn't recognize you
    I do, I do, I do

    Devil recognize you...
    I do
    Even the devil wouldn't recognize you
    I-I-I do
