Set It Off – Dancing With The Devil lyrics
[Intro]
Life's too short to be dancing with the Devil
Life's too short to be dancing with the Devil
You best sleep, with a blanket and a shovel
Cause life's too short to be dancing with the Devil

[Verse 1]
Where am I?
My hands are tied
Turn on the lights
And I see you standing
Over me, it's hard to breathe
I can't believe that you'd do this to me

[Pre-Chorus]
Years of us building the trust up
No love was ever enough
I'm foolish to think we were friends
It's funny how it ends

[Chorus]
You know, when times get tough
You always give up
I know your smoking guns, the tip of your tongue
You take your aim to point the blame
It's time you let it go
So save your lies, behind those eyes
You're a devil in disguise

[Post-Chorus]
Life's too short to be dancing with the Devil
Life's too short to be dancing with the Devil
You best sleep, with a blanket and a shovel
Cause life's too short to be dancing with the Devil

[Verse 2]
Now it's time to pay the price
No playing nice, when your live so selfish
Have a drink and make a scene
Embarrass me, cause you're lost and hopeless

[Pre-Chorus]
Years of us building the trust up
No love was ever enough
I'm foolish to think we were friends
It's funny how it ends

[Chorus]
You know, when times get tough
You always give up
I know your smoking guns, the tip of your tongue
You take your aim to point the blame
It's time you let it go
So save your lies, behind those eyes
You're a devil in disguise

[Post-Chorus]
Life's too short to be dancing with the Devil (yeah)
Life's too short to be dancing with the Devil (yeah)
You best sleep, with a blanket and a shovel
Cause life's too short to be dancing with the Devil

[Bridge]
You try to act as if you're saving me
But you wouldn't cut the rope if it was hanging me
I'm sick of people saying what you sow you reap
Cause I've been counting down the minutes of that, so to speak

Think of all the hours and hours of grind
That would it turned into sour findings
As I wonder if our resigning is becoming the silver lining
But I’m not a coward, I’m fighting
Cause if they're the meat then I’m biting
Go ahead ignoring and smiling
Cause I'm climbing ’til I let...

[Chorus]
You know, when times get tough
You always give up
I know your smoking guns, the tip of your tongue
You take your aim to point the blame
It's time you let it go
So save your lies, behind those eyes-

You know, when times get tough
You always give up
I know your smoking guns, the tip of your tongue
You take your aim to point the blame
It's time you let it go
So save your lies, behind those eyes
You're a devil in disguise

[Outro]
Life's too short to be dancing with the Devil (yeah)
Life's too short to be dancing with the Devil (yeah)
You best sleep, with a blanket and a shovel
Cause life's too short to be dancing with the Devil
