lyrics

Me and the Devil meet now and then
When I get weak and experiment
I control him most of the time
Uphill struggles I will climb

Sometimes we don’t meet for weeks
When we do I listen as he speaks
He talks its tough just say no
Its hot in hell but I need snow

When Me and the Devil meet
On the dark side of the street.
I fall apart its bittersweet
When me and the Devil, me and the Devil meet

I try so hard to not see him
Ignore his many pseudonyms
Its a sweat to keep it real
When your down and looking for a deal

When Me and the Devil meet
On the dark side of the street.
I fall apart its bittersweet
When me and the Devil, me and the Devil meet

You could say we see Eye to Eye
Once too often and its goodbye
It’s real tough to stay away
I gotta try I might even pray

When Me and the Devil meet
On the dark side of the street.
I fall apart its bittersweet
When me and the Devil, me and the Devil meet
