I spoke to the Devil Looking back on those dark times Somewhat lucky to be hear now When you get to a point as low as you know You’ve got to fight back somehow I’ve seen the highs and seen the lows Don’t know how I got through the day Somehow hanging on to life When I could see it slipping away Because I spoke to the devil And the devil said it’s do or die I’ve always been a fighter in my life So like never before I tried And sometimes I went over the edge And sometimes way out of line But I had a dream of better times And to see my sweetheart smile It’s difficult not to look back You only torment your soul Go to set your sights back on the light Don’t ever let it go Because I spoke to the devil And looked him right in the eye If the choice for me is life or death Then I’ll hold on to my life Jeff Dawson 2016
