Devil's Dozen Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. So Right So Wrong (7:21)
On the move, on the run… as it used to be
Is it fear, is it faith that is leading me
Straight ahead, miles away from the misery of wasted years?

Turning down, switching off all my memories
Cutting loose, leaving out friends and enemies
Every word, every face… trying to forget while shifting gears

Can you tell me how, can you tell me why
Anything you say seems to be a lie?
Can you tell me what made you change? So long!
Used to be so right now it feels so wrong

As I'm looking back in anger over this no man's land, trying hard to understand

Can you tell me how, can you tell me why everything you've said seems to be a lie?
Never thought I'd leave the place where I belong…
Used to feel so right but now it feels so wrong

Was it you, was it me? I don't really care
By the end of the day – is it so unfair
To retreat and forget all the promises you made? I know

"If you do, if you don't" – as I heard them say
"You'll be damned". Only I did it anyway
Packing up, getting out… really sorry but I had to go

You can break my heart, you can break my soul
You can even say that it's all my fault
Go ahead, I see you're on a roll… but it felt so right
2. May You Never (Walk Alone) (7:29)
I have been stuck behind this wobbly desk for hours now. I don't know how and where to start – so pointless, so grotesque: a dire plight but what to write about you but "I miss yo so"? My mind is empty… here I go

May you never walk alone, forgotten down the road – so lonely,
The one and only, far away
You're never on your own, I'm crying out "so long" forever
And "may you never walk alone"

As twilight turned to dawn an empty page was all I had, I'm going mad
What to remember – neither saint nor sage… or just like me – so can't you see
Now as your image fades away the only thing that's left to say… I'm going

May you never walk alone, forgotten down the road – so lonely,
The one and only, far away
You're never on your own, who cares about what they're saying?
Just hear me praying, listen

May you never be afraid. It doesn't matter where you're going without knowing either way
You'll never be betrayed. I'm crying out "so long" forever
And may you never walk alone

I have been stuck behind this wobbly desk for hours now. I don't know how
And where to start – so pointless, so grotesque: a dire plight but what to write?
It's like every word's been said before so I can't do it anymore
3. Heart on a Platter (6:52)
Tie me down; never let me go 'til
The end of my days
Cut me loose – and before you
Know I'll be lost in a maze
Lift me up to a higher ground
Elevate me and don't
Let me down – 'cuz I'd stick
Around right here on my own,
My heart's turning
Slowly to stone

Shake me up, let me feel alive
While I'm sure that you will
Wear me out – guess I would
Survive, sign me up for that thrill
One step forward – it's not so
Much yet I hope you won't take
Two steps back
Cuz I'd lose my touch…
It keeps me awake
So give me a break

My heart's on a platter
So laugh up your sleeve…
It's easy, I know, but you might
Just try to give in, you could try to believe
My heart's on a platter tonight
4. A Tear in the Rain (5:49)
Yesterday is over: dead and gone,
Cold and grey – so what're you dwelling on?
A fortune made and lost? Just counting up the cost?
You better keep your fingers crossed

Time has come for us to count the score:
Tell me what have you been fighting for?
A little bit of fame? Seems like a modest claim…
But no one will ever know your name

Storm is coming today, well – get running
Off you go ball and chain
Keep on steering away, disappearing
Like a tear in the rain
Life's been wasted – so far, can you face it?
Does it drive you insane?
Scary feeling: you are disappearing
Like a tear in the rain

A little bit of fame? Believe me,
There's no shame
Seems like a modest claim… they
Always sound the same
But no one will ever know your name
5. Until the Day (6:36)
Another year has passed, another
Wrinkled page's been turned
God knows it's not the last; I've learned…
I've learned to hold on tight and
How to make it on my own
But in the middle of the night I'd moan
I'll wait, wait until the day my
Bleeding heart stops, but now I pray
"Is anybody up there? So guide me with thy grace"
I'm getting ready… just to see your face
How come: you slipped away and
Yet it feels… you're everywhere
I miss you every single day, I swear
I'll wait, wait until the day my
Bleeding heart stops, but now I pray
"Is anybody up there? So guide me with thy grace"
I'm getting ready… just to see your face
I'll live, live until the sign shows at
My door, all the stars aligned
Then I'll know what's coming… a little price to pay
So I'll be waiting right until the day,
Right until that day

Another year has passed, another
Wrinkled page's been turned
How do I know it's not the last; I've learned, by now – I've learned
6. Riches to Rags (5:44)
I've been around way too long to care or wonder
Why am I bound to witness all this mess? I guess
Wherever you go – it's the same, so I'm
Sure it's a name of the game
If you're quick on a trigger, richer and bigger
You'd stay a bit longer, get a bit stronger, hope for the best. It's alright

You can save every dime, hide or bury it all
But the higher you climb… even harder you fall
Carry on, don't be shy – keep on stuffing these bags
In a blink of an eye you'll go from riches to rags
Don't forget! Then again… go ahead
Carry on, don't be shy – keep on packing these bags
In a blink of an eye you'll go from riches to rags

I've been around way too long to care or wonder
Who's going down, who's to blame or why… oh my
Do as you pleased but watch out
Here's what I'm talking about
Hurry, pick up your number… who's going under?
Look at these faces, glittering places…
There is no easy way out
7. Way Too Late (6:37)
Sometimes I feel so lost, so off the track
And yes, I know – there is no going back
Trying to remember that point of no return
When all those bridges burned

Somewhere in time. I am a little kid
No second thoughts, no matter what you did
There's always someone to catch you if you'd fall
I know you're nearby, can you hear my call

If I could hit rewind; re-watch, relive, refine…
Still waiting for a sign, another chance to put the record straight
'Cuz I'm no longer scared to tell how much I cared
These words I should have shared…
I know it's way too late

Years passing by yet this kind of wound never heal
Words can't describe the pain or the way I feel

I know I've never been a perfect son
Forgive me for my "living on the run"…
It's the same old story, but now we're worlds apart
I'm so sorry if I broke your heart
8. How Do You Know (3:16)
On the highest of mountains
On the shiniest throne
In a circle of fountains
Out of reach and all alone
Every move is majestic
Every word’s pure gold
As a simple domestic
I’m all ears, lo and behold

How do you – know what’s wrong and know what’s right?
How do you – let me ask you, inside

How do you know what’s wrong, what’s right?
How do you see the other side?
How do you feel night after night
Watching the darkness grow?
How do you know if it’s alright
Judging without a second sight?
How can you live in black and white?
How do you know? How do you know?

After years of rejection
You are finally there
Closest thing to perfection
Heart of stone, an empty stare
In the kingdom of madness
You’re an essence of good
Yet you’re drowning in sadness
A lonely soul misunderstood

How do you – know what’s wrong and know what’s right?
How do you – let me ask you, inside

How do you know what’s wrong, what’s right?
How do you see the other side?
How do you feel night after night
Watching the darkness grow?
How do you know if it’s alright
Judging without a second sight?
How can you live in black and white?
How do you know? How do you know? How do you know?

How do you know what’s wrong, what’s right?
How do you see the other side?
How do you feel night after night
Watching the darkness grow?
How do you know if it’s alright
Judging without a second sight?
How can you live in black and white?
How do you know? How do you know?

How do you know?
How do you feel?
How do you know if it’s alright
Judging without?
How can you live in black and white?
How do you know? How do you know?
