devils card

what made you think you could have me
without ever putting the time in
not that it counts, but your flattering talk tells me
you're looking out only for yourself

trusting a touch is hardly enough
to build a bridge from lover to lover
you seem to use intuition
to pardon my weakness as something to honor

but not too far from the tree i meet you
to take another bite from the blame
i pulled the devil's card to find i'm the fuel and the fire of the flame

now that the answers are out of the question
dare i try unravel or ask them
was i just a game or a prize to be won
are we more than our selfish motivations

not on my own can i save myself
trapped in the dark of my private hell

not too far from the tree i meet you
to take another bite from the blame
i pulled the devil's card to find i'm the fuel and the fire of the flame
