Devil in the Details

(joe whyte)
Music and Lyrics by Joe Whyte ©Matawan Music (SESAC)
I’ve long stopped making sense from the hours we’ve spent
Driving home just to get no rest, ‘cause this place is such a mess

But I know the devil is in the details
and I don’t mind the pins and needles
as long as drinking don’t lead to leaving
I’ll be alright, yeah I’ll be fine

The blood crawls through me now, ‘cause this heart won’t spit it out
For too long I’ve blamed it on this town but even it don’t know me now

But I know the devil is in the details
and I don’t mind the pins and needles
as long as drinking don’t lead to leaving
I’ll be alright, yeah I’ll be fine

And your rosary beads hold nothing for me; still I’m praying them down anyway
And family don’t mean much to me; still I’m counting on you to come and save me

Yeah I know the devil is in the details
and I don’t mind the pins and needles
as long as drinking don’t lead to leaving
I’ll be alright, yeah I’ll be fine
