The Devil in Disguise

Written By: Michael Shoemaker

The Devil in Disguise
(c) 2004 Mike Shoemaker

[Verse]
I felt so good about it
When you first came into my life
I didn't take for granted
The love you brought, it cut me like a knife
Those days have come and gone
Now it's time to stop and take a stand
You're wrecking my whole world
You've got to give me up or give a damn

[Chorus]
I just can't figure out
Why you're happy when you're crying
And it's so hard to know
When you're straight or when you're lying
You've cost me all my friends
You don't care, I see it in your eyes
You're either just my type
Or you're the the devil in disguise
Or you're the the devil in disguise

[Verse]
I can't deny the thrill
When we're close together late at night
But we can't seem to go
A single day without some kind of fight
It's reached the breaking point
None of this was ever in my plans
You're driving me insane
You've got to give me up or give a damn

[Chorus]
I just can't figure out
Why you're happy when you're crying
And it's so hard to know
When you're straight or when you're lying
You've cost me all my friends
You don't care, I see it in your eyes
You're either just my type
Or you're the the devil in disguise
Or you're the the devil in disguise

[Solo]

[Chorus]
I just can't figure out
Why you're happy when you're crying
And it's so hard to know
When you're straight or when you're lying
You've cost me all my friends
You don't care, I see it in your eyes
You're either just my type
Or you're the the devil in disguise
Or you're the the devil in disguise
Or you're the the devil in disguise
Or you're the the devil in disguise
Or you're the the devil in disguise

White Hot

Written By: Michael Shoemaker

White Hot
(c) 2004 Mike Shoemaker

(Verse)
Runnin' loose and hoppin' clubs the other night
Wound up at the Palace and the space was tight
Thought about goin' home when you caught my eye

The bodies started partin' when you hit the floor
Then you got it movin' and they yelled for more
Couldn't keep from watchin' I had no alibi

(Chorus)
You're electric
You're white hot
Come and give it to me show me what you've got
You've got it workin'
You're so fine
The way you move and groove it really blows my mind
I gotta have you
I can't wait
That dress you're wearin' makes it hard to concentrate
White hot woman
Won't you bring it home to me

(Verse)
Every man and woman looked you up and down
Thinkin' 'bout a way to get you outta town
Figured I was S.O.L. when I caught your eye

No one could believe it as you pulled me in
Knew I had to throw my caution to the wind
Gave it everything I had, it was do or die

(Chorus)
You're electric
You're white hot
Come and give it to me show me what you've got
You've got it workin'
You're so fine
The way you move and groove it really blows my mind
I gotta have you
I can't wait
That dress you're wearin' makes it hard to concentrate
White hot woman
Won't you bring it home to me

(Solo)

(Chorus)
You're electric
You're white hot
Come and give it to me show me what you've got
You've got it workin'
You're so fine
The way you move and groove it really blows my mind
I gotta have you
I can't wait
That dress you're wearin' makes it hard to concentrate
White hot woman
Won't you bring it home to me

Wasted Time

Written By: Michael Shoemaker

(Chorus 1)
You were the one who wanted to go steady
Now you're telling_me that you're above me
It's hard to take the fact that you were seeing other men
It's hard for me to know you didn't love me
Don't try to rationalize what you've been doing
...Don't try to pretend that everything's just fine
You've absolutely destroyed my whole perspective
...And now I know it's all been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time

(Chorus 2)
You promised me that you could be relied on
You promised me that I was gonna be your man
I thought that we would have a life together
I never knew 'til now you didn't give a damn
I didn't understand you were just playing_me
I never thought that you were handing_me a line
Now that I know no doubt you've screwed me over
I can tell my life with_you's been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time

(Chorus 3)
It's really hard to shake this empty feeling
It's hard to take that every-thing has been a lie
...I remember passion and the roses
Knowing that was fake it makes me want to die
You didn't have to perpetrate a fiction
You didn't have to devastate my paradigm
What you don't get is that your life's ironic
One day you'll realize it's all been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time

It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
It's just been wasted time
