Lyrics

Words I Cannot Say

Written By: Katie Brianna Garfoot

From way down here I can see I’m not the only one
Will I have to settle for less when my time runs out?
I’ve so much more to say to you than I would dare
So these words I cannot say

When you were just near my I took steps out from the dark
And somehow I saw a life I could say was my own
But more long hours passed, still you don’t understand
Oh these words I cannot say

No day goes by I don’t think about how much I owe
Everything I have to give is only half what I should
And I wonder what it means to you and where I stand
Still these words I cannot say

From way down here I can see I’m not the only one
Will I have to settle for less when my time runs out?
I’ve so much more to say to you than I would dare
So these words I cannot say

I guess these words I’ll never say, I’ll never say

The Devil Came Back For You

Written By: Katie Brianna Garfoot

Here you are again, hanging round like a bad smell
Laying the blame everywhere but on yourself
Make no excuses, you’re as mad as you are stoned
If you’re not careful, you’ll end up back on your own

Oh the words you say fuel the fire to start a war
Here I see you are coming back for more
What was the one thing that you were trying to prove?
Turned all reason against me, did that feel good?

I’ll never forget, oh, the hell you sent me to
Now it’s your turn, the devil came back for you

If magic things were real you would be my first party trick
You’d disappear again, it’s painless and it’s quick
I wouldn’t hear your silence when I answer the phone
I could feel safe staying home all alone

I’ll never forget, oh, the hell you sent me to
Now it’s your turn, the devil came back for you

I’ll never forget, oh, the hell you sent me to
Now it’s your turn, the devil came back for you
Oh the devil, he came back for you

Oh the devil, he came back for you
