Demons Cry


Artist: Annette Smith
Artist's Description
I see this as a contemporary folk/folk rock song with a fast manic rhythm - think Mumford and Sons. It's about a man trying to save a woman from the oldest seducer in the world - The Devil.

Extract:

'Last night I saw the Devil slumped across his violin -
Wailing in ecstasy at what he’d seen -
Needle poised above your heart he makes his red tattoo -
Supping with the Devil’s OK, Baby, but sleeping with him’s taboo'

Demons Cry

By Annette Smith
Verse 1:

Saw you today with fractured eyes and your weary smile
Squinting at the light through the bars of your prison cell
He’s paid your bail, but you ain’t free
You’re in league with him and not with me

Chorus:

Renounce him, Honey, and make the demons cry
Can’t leave seein’ heaven ‘til you die.
Love me, Sugar, I ain’t no angel, but I can make you fly.

Verse 2:

Last night I saw the Devil slumped across his violin
Wailing in ecstasy at what he’d seen
Needle poised above your heart he makes his red tattoo
Supping with the Devil’s OK, Baby, but sleeping with him’s taboo

Chorus:

Renounce him, Honey, and make the demons cry
Can’t leave seein’ heaven ‘til you die
Love me, Sugar, I ain’t no angel, but I can make you fly

Verse 3:

He triggers the pulse in your wrist and your neck
But he rips your soul - your mind’s a wreck
Adrenalin kicks in behind the rhythm and the pain
Smell the sulphur in his breath as he lies again

Chorus:

Renounce him, Honey, and make the demons cry
Can’t leave seein’ heaven ‘til you die
Love me, Sugar, I ain’t no angel, but I can make you fly

Verse 4:

Escape the torment through the doors of deception
Until you find sanctuary, a true redemption
I ain’t no saint, but I know there’s a better way
Nothin’ grows in the Devil’s shadow, Baby, step into the day

Chorus:

Renounce him, Honey, and make the demons cry
Can’t leave seein’ heaven ‘til you die
Love me, Sugar, I ain’t no angel, but I can make you fly
