red guitar lyrics – david sylvian

i recognize no method of living
that i know
i see only the basic materials
i may use

if you ask me, i may tell you
it’s been this way for years

i play my red guitar
it’s the devil in the flesh
it’s the iron in my soul

i play my red guitar
it’s the devil in the flesh
it’s the iron in my soul

i understand you’re facing problems
inside you
a certain difficulty of being
that i know too

you may ask me why do i fail
just when i’m needed

i play my red guitar
it’s the devil in the flesh
it’s the iron in my soul

i play my red guitar
it’s the devil in the flesh
it’s the iron in my soul

i play my red guitar
it’s the devil in the flesh
it’s the iron in my soul

if you ask me, i may tell you
it’s been this way for years
