Favorite Quote:
We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, i


Intro:
He's blinded by the flames
That are burning in his eyes
That show his thirst, his hunger
For the things I can't provide

He drank the devil's blood
And sold his soul away
He drank the devil's blood
Why am I the one to pay?

Verse 1:
He likes to start fights
Then storms out in a rage
He wanders all night
Stumbles into the doorway

Each night I watch him fall
To a drunken state of grace
Every night I watch him crumble
See the sunlight leave his face

Chorus:
He's blinded by the flames
That are burning in his eyes
That show his thirst, his hunger
For the things I can't provide

He drank the devil's blood
And sold his soul away
He drank the devil's blood
Why am I the one to pay?

Verse 2:
Now I sleep with a knife
Under my pillow at night
And pray he'll stay away
Until the morning's light

Oh the truth is I'm a fool
Cause I keep hanging on
Through every bruise and every heartache
But the man I knew is gone

Chorus

Bridge:
Throws a nightstand across the floor
Slams every open door
I used to fight back
But I can't anymore

When did this heaven become a hell?
A nightmare I know so well
He knows I still love him
Got me trapped in his jail cell

Just one taste is all it takes
One crack for him to break
Now every thing's gone to waste
Every thing's gone to waste

Chorus:

Outro:
I'd help if I only knew how
But he doesn't want to change
Only the Lord can save him now
Oh if he may

Packed my bags and locked the door
And I'll be on my way
Cause he drank the devil's blood
And that's the price he's gonna pay
