Lyrics

"The Devil's Whisper"

Written By: Jesse W Benson

VERSE 1:
In my darkest hour
She always finds a way to
get to me and I have no power What ever am I to do
Her voice is light but towers
I yell for her to go away
But the Devil never cowers Against her I see no way

CHORUS:
For me it’s all over
I see me falling for her
She is the Devil’s whisper
For that I can’t resist her

Verse 2:
The sun dances off her hips
Blind me cause I saw it
These words whisper from her lips take me because you want it
So I try to resist
But the pressure keeps on going up
And so I take a sip
I’m tasting from the Devil’s cup

CHORUS

BREAKDOWN:
I don’t think I want to
go any deeper than I already am But I never think I’m going to
go any deeper than I already am

"Safe This Time"

Written By: Jesse W Benson

VERSE1:
It’s like Monday morning coffee after the weekend you reel me in
I can never get you off me
Will it be a good day, well that all depends
on you
and what you’re going to drag me through this time
it’s you
don’t think you’re going to rag my mind cause

CHORUS:
I just wanna’ be safe
I can’t risk it, I can’t put us on the line
I’m not willing to waste
no more time
I can’t make that mistake
of getting all twisted
so I’m asking for a sign
I just wanna’ be safe
this time…
Safe this time

VERSE 2:
Just like yesterday’s paper
I already know what you’re going to do
Just like long time neighbors
I still can’t help but be next to you can live
any way you want to live
but I can’t give
you my heart that’s the way it is cause...

CHORUS

BREAKDOWN:
Even though you say you love me your lips can’t ease my mind
And I know you’re thinking of me but you probably need to find somebody who
can afford to gamble everything
on you
can’t expect me to
please don’t expect me to...

CHORUS

"Fancy Street"

Written By: Jesse W Benson

cHORUs:
sometimes you gotta’ take that old dirt road
cause everythang’ on fancy street ain’t good for your soul
you pay to park it with a valet when ya’ know it go for free by that old café
I know ya’ tired of hitting pot holes
but everthang’ on fancy street ain’t good for ya’ soul

Verse 1:
well ya’ picked a new pair verses wear n’ old shoes
but the new bunch ain’t really used to you
and now ya’ miles away from whatcha’ really knew
look n’ a pitiful blue
well ya’ look n mighty nice in ya’ brand new clothes
gotcha’ shiny sunglasses on the tip of ya’ nose
ya’ even carry n a tote bag
but ya’ so involved in ya’ self forgot remove the tag
I know ya’ hate take n’ back roadsbut everthang’ on fancy street ain’t good for ya’ soul

Verse 2:
well ya’ got a new car to keep up with old Jones
the top comes down and the color’s two tone
the wheels a sight cause they made outta’ chrome
but one went a flat so now ya’ can’t get a home
the city’s nice cause it’s full of pretty lights
but you don’t really know to take a left not a right
ya’ end up on a highway
to no where fast we call it cryway
I know ya’ hate take n’ back roads
but everthang’ on fancy street ain’t good for ya’ soul
