Yeasayer Devil And The Deed Lyrics

Last updated: 11/01/2012 11:00:57 AM

I won't act until she's gone the way of violence
Stare at pictures that I'm hiding in their attic

How do you know
How could you ever know

There's a man who got caught in a trick now
And I never see her lips being kissed on

How do you know
How could you ever know

Maybe now it's harder
If it was 40 years ago
I would need it to sleep over
Between the devil and the deed

But I can't live without her
I got down and asked
I could never let her
Get out of my hands

You could never handle if she was into magic
You could never stand if she couldn't speak your language

She wouldn't let yourself get mistaken for your whole clan
Shake it out your big fat head

Maybe here it's harder
And it's a backwards country
Where you need it to sleep together
I'm between the devil and the deed

But I can't live without her
I got down and asked
I could never let her
Get out of my hands

Maybe here it's harder
If it was 40 years ago
I would need it to sleep over
I'm between the devil and the deed

But I can't live without her
I got down and asked
I could never let her
Get out of my hands
