saved lyrics – big & rich

there was a time i tried to kill a man
just for lookin’ at me wrong
anger so strong i couldn’t stop myself

but i was killin’ myself one shot at a time
goin’ insane from the pain
the women and the wine

but i finally hit bottom in an alley way
h*ll wasn’t but a breath away
so i hit my knee’s in the street
and begged god for mercy

last night, well, i told the devil where to go
you know heaven’s got my soul
ain’t gonna listen to his lies no more
last night i told the devil where to go

i could have saved myself a lot of hurtin’ time
if i’d have just listened to my momma
every time she cried

well, i was way to lost in a sinner’s haze
burnin’ up the days
just another young man who had lost his way

now it finally makes sense what the preacher said
when he said, “son, you don’t wanna wake up dead
and find yourself alone in the fires of h*ll”
yeah, everybody

last night i told the devil where to go
you know heaven’s got my soul
well ain’t gonna listen to his lies no more
last night i told the devil where to go

now when you hear that demon
knocking at your door
you just tell him you don’t want
his kind ’round here no more

’cause if you wanna love, if you wanna live
if you wanna be free, you can’t forget and forgive
you gotta kick him in the teeth and do exactly
do exactly what i did, yeah

last night i told the devil where to go
you know heaven’s got my soul
i ain’t gonna listen to his lies no more
last night i told the devil

last night i told the devil
last night i told the devil
last night i told the devil
last night i told the devil
i told the devil where to go
