(m. jagger/k. richards)

Did you ever wake up to find
A day that broke up your mind
Destroyed your notion of circular time

Its just that demon life has got you in it's sway
Its just that demon life has got you in it's sway

Aint flinging tears out on the dusty ground
For all my friends out on the burial ground
Cant stand the feeling getting so brought down

Its just that demon life has got me in it's sway
Its just that demon life has got me in it's sway

There must be ways to find out
Love is the way they say is really strutting out

Hey, hey, hey now
One day I woke up to find
Right in the bed next to mine
Someone that broke me up with a corner of her smile, yeah

Its just that demon life has got me in it's sway
Its just that demon life has got me in it's sway

Its just that demon life has got me in it's sway
Its just that demon life has got me...

Its just that demon life has got me...

    It's all about that demon life. Bad stuff happens but it's all worth it because you get the intense experiences of the rock and roll lifestyle. Sometimes it can get you down. Mick Jagger explained this to me in a dream back around 1977 when I was in junior high.
