I spent a night
Set on fire
Not with passion
Not with desire

I have all the burns
The branding to prove it
I slept with the devil
I wish I knew it

Hells tongue split down the middle
Swirling around mine
Why couldn’t I see
Hell had something to hide?

Hell’s eyes where solid black
I looked the other way
Hell whispered to me
“c’mon baby, let’s play”

Hell barely touched me
But the burns drew my blood
No one can see the scars
Only, I wish they could

I gave my permission
I signed my bloody name
On Hell’s little contract
No, I wasn’t sane

So maybe I’m psychotic
But I fell in love with Hell
He found another girl
Goodbye sweet wedding bells

Hell is a liar
Manipulates to get Hell’s way
Hopeless romantic
I never should have stayed

And I cried myself to sleep
Once I found out
He took from me
Then kicked me out

But I stayed the night
Fooled by Hell’s charm
Not sure it was even me
Wrapped in Hell’s arms
