beware of the devil lyrics – impellitteri

beware, beware of the devil

the devil looked into my eyes when i was seventeen
he said, “i’ll give you all the world if you will follow me.”
he dealt the cards, i drew the king, with this he was not pleased
and then he raised the stakes when he said to me: (i am the devil)

“i am the dealer, i’ve come for your soul
lay down your cards and i’ll take control
i will bet your life if you dare to try, my friend,
the luck of the draw tonight”

the dealer tried to conquer me but i would not concede
now everything he offered me was tempting to believe
i took a look inside my hand, i saw the royalty
and then i called his bluff when he said to me: (i am the devil)

“i am the dealer, i’ve come for your soul
lay down your cards and i’ll take control
i will bet your life if you dare to try, my friend,
the luck of the draw
i am the dealer, i tell you no lies
show me your cards and fate will decide
i will bet your life for eternity, my friend,
the winner takes all tonight”

[solo]

“i am the dealer, i’ve come for your soul
lay down your cards and i’ll take control
i will bet your life if you dare to try, my friend,
the luck of the draw
i am the dealer, i tell you no lies
show me your cards and fate will decide
i will bet your life for eternity, my friend,
the winner takes all”

“i am the dealer, i’ve come for your soul
lay down your cards and i’ll take control
i will bet your life if you dare to try, my friend,
the luck of the draw
i am the dealer, i tell you no lies
show me your cards and fate will decide
i will bet your life for eternity, my friend,
the winner takes all tonight”
