A DEVIL ON BOTH SHOULDERS

A Devil on Both Shoulders is a solid rock song that smacks the listener right in the face with Hoke's lyrical madness and straight rock and roll guitar. This song was written in one day as Hoke had the idea for the song for a long time, just didn't apply the idea to a melody and chords until one late night of extreme hyperfocus.

LYRICS:
Everybody’s got a young little devil
And they’ve got an Angel that’s older
Every time that look in the mirror
All I see is the devil on my shoulders

When did I lose my faith in something good?
When did I find myself so misunderstood?
When will I do the things that I know I should?
When will I become everything I could?

Cos I’ve got to keep this world from getting colder
I’ve got to get this devil off my shoulders
I’ve got to live my life just a little bolder
Cos all I got is a devil on both shoulders

When will I find my way and stop the sin?
When will I finally let my life begin?
When will I start to use my heart again?
When will I find myself to be my only friend?

Cos I’ve got to keep this world from getting colder
I’ve got to get this devil off my shoulders
I’ve got to live my life a little bolder
Cos all I got is a devil on both shoulders

When will my angel come and show me the way?
Show me things that make me see better days?
Show me love ain’t just the words we say?
Show me life don’t have to be this way…

Maybe I could learn to love again
Maybe I could feel the love I bring
Maybe I could feel the love within
Maybe I could learn to love again
Maybe I could learn to love again
