09. Hey Devil

by TobyMac


She dialed him about 6:00 pm
She checked her hair in the mirror
And she stepped through the door like this
Three flights down
And sheís out on the streets
Walking brick sidewalks lined in grey concrete

He saw her coming from a few blocks away
Red scarf in the wind as it started to rain a bit
Shuffled down the boulevard
Cut me like a deck of cards
I thought you had me
You thought that you had me

But hey, Devil, go on
Get your junk out of here
I donít need you
I donít need you
Hey, Devil, go on
Get your junk out of here
I donít need you
So move on

I stepped to it like I knew what I was doing
Iím a moth
Youíre the flame
Never knew youíd be my ruin
In the blink of an eye
Element of surprise
Got my feet on the earth
But my fist to the sky

Shuffled down the boulevard
Cut me like a deck of cards
I thought you had me
You thought you had me
Now the plot is thickening
Pushing deep under my skin
I thought you had me
You that that you had me

Youíre a beauty and A beast
Youíre the pressure never cease
Youíre the straight other side
And they say you never sleep

Behind the Song:
ďI wanted to talk about being drawn into something, and in an instant stepping away from it. I wanted to make it artistic enough and intense enough to where it was looked at as any temptation thatís coming at somebody. Itís not literally the Devil. Itís just anything thatís got your number and youíre trying to resist it.

ďMusically, this was fun because being a child of the í80s, when I was really getting my musical thing on, I definitely nodded this song toward that with the four-on-the-floor beat and the way the melody works.Ē - tobyMac
