Natalia Kills – Devils Don't Fly lyrics
I heard the angels call again
I threw myself a party
Chardonnay and oxy
I stopped the screams inside my head
I remember when you had me
Floating high like sid & nancy

They say it's not the answer
But I can't carry on
Cause I got nowhere, no one
Without you boy, I'm done
And when I'm gone
Remember you're the one
And just because I fight
Don't mean that I
Never learned how to love

You know devils don't fly
So don't expect me not to fall
Devils don't fly
But god, we almost had it all
But I got chains and you got wings
You know that life ain't fair sometimes
Devils don't fly... But I try

What's a girl to do when she's not strong?
When everyone that hold my hand
Gets cut from all the thorns?
I used to put my ear against the wall
To hear the screams, to hear the fall
More reasons to escape it all

And it's not the answer
But I can't carry on
I give my best smile, my last dime
But I always get it wrong
It's not 'cause I'm young
Or from a broken home
Maybe I just fight
'Cause I don't know where I belong

You know devils don't fly
So don't expect me not to fall
Devils don't fly
We almost had it all
But I got chains and you got wings
You know that life ain't fair sometimes
Devils don't fly... But I try

You know devils don't fly
So don't expect me not to fall
Devils don't fly
But god, we almost had it all
But I got chains and you got wings
You know that life ain't fair sometimes
Devils don't fly... But I try

Angels were never meant to fall
And you were the loveliest of all
If I thought god could fix this
I'd pray for your forgiveness
But I've been cast down
Thrown out when I crossed
To the other side

No devils don't fly

You know devils don't fly
So don't expect me not to fall
Devils don't fly
But god, we almost had it all
But I got chains and you got wings
You know that life ain't fair sometimes
Devils don't fly... But I try

But I try...

    I think this is about a relationship. She is with someone she has deemed “good”, while she has deemed herself “bad”. The way I see it, she can’t go with them on to success, because she is bad, and bad people aren’t successful. As seen in the chorus, “devils don’t fly.” She is saying to this person you can’t expect her to succeed, and that while she will try her hardest to make it work, it is doomed to fail. This theory is supported by the angel stanza with, “angels were never meant to fall, and you were the loveliest of all” . This is her essentially saying that they should go on without her, that she is holding them back, that they shouldn’t stay here with her. This is also seen in the “I’ve got chains, and you’ve got wing line”, and the “life ain’t fair some times” is her essentially arguing that this is how it is. The repeated “But I tried” is her final acceptance that this didn’t work, and was never going to. This meaning is further supported by the line “just because I fight doesn’t mean I never learned how to love”. She is saying she can love, she is just to flawed to be with this person.

    I think it means that people feel chained down when they are born into one lifestyle, and what Natalia says 'But god we almost had it all' she might be referring that some people come so close to success, but are restricted due to lifestyle, past experiences, etc. And at other points in the song when she says 'Devils don't fly' and then immediately follows with 'But I tried' she might be referring to how people are coming into access of another opportunity and when the last 'But I tried' comes around at the end of the song, she (or who she is talking about) has finally reached the success or opportunity they have been looking for. On a side note, when she said 'Angels were never meant to fall' I believe she is saying that even though a person works so hard and shouldn't have failed when they worked that hard, they often end up failing anyway due to, yet again, background, lifestyle, etc. I would just like to say this is simply my opinion and you can choose to believe what you want, but this is to an (almost) full extent what I believe the song means. Have a good day, this had been L. M. Asaaena.

    What the song means, is that once you are classified as a 'bad' person (aka devil in the song) you cannot be rise up and be classified as a good person (or angel). Natalia is saying that she feels chained to the classification 'bad' so that she cannot be a 'good' person anymore. Btw, that is just my way of thinking, so yeah.
