Hell and Back

I held on as long as I could possibly – my blind faith pushing me to my knees.
I felt the warmth of a touch and it made me believe, and I knew it well.

I stood at the doorway hoping you might let me in,
My head spinning round, my nerves jumping from my skin,
I felt the stinging, ragged cold of the devil’s hot embrace,
And I knew it well.

And you took me to hell and back, how many times can I walk away from you?
My mind’s like a one-way track, and everyone is taking me back to you.
And you tell me just one more time and you’re lying like you always do,
And I know it well.

I must have walked a thousand miles or more trying to keep you off my mind,
I’ve knocked on a thousand doors I’m sure, just to see what I might find,
I’ve slept in the arms of a fallen angel crying next to me,
And I knew her well

And you took me to hell and back. How many times can I walk away from you?
My mind’s like a one-way track, and everyone is taking me back to you.
And you tell me just one more time and you’re lying like you always do,
And you give me just one more line and there’s nothing that I can do,
If I do it just one more time, then I swear that I’ll be through,
Yeah I know it well.
