Dog

lyrics

ever since i met you, i've been trying to avoid you
but you looked my way and called my name and i walked right by you
in a moment of weakness i made my way around to you
and ever since then nothing's been the same and it's all 'cause of you

it's the demons in the water, it's the devil in disguise
he's been preying on my name a long time
and it seems he always borrows, just a little every time
but he won't complain, 'cause the debt is all mine

made a promise to shed you, but you got your nails in too deep
all those things you said inside my head and i hear your heartbeat
it's the same old familiar sound, the rhythm that consumes me
there's not a moment of the day that could go by that i don't think of you

it's the demons in the water, it's the devil in disguise
he's been preying on my name a long time
and it seems he always borrows, just a little every time
but he won't complain, 'cause the debt is all mine

doth not he latch on and feed like a leech
we're wired this way to be diseased
the choice is always ultimately ours
a pandora's jar is what we received

every time i think i found my way back home
then i figured out i lost my way
when every little thing reminds me of you
then i know i've gone and lost my way

it's the demons in the water, it's the devil in disguise
it's the dog over your shoulder, it's the jar you open wide
it's the one thing you can't have, it's the one thing left inside

no he won't complain, 'cause the debt is all mine
no he won't complain, the debt is all mine

he won't complain, 'cause the debt is all mine
