    I'd just had a discussion with my wife about how I hadn't managed to get into the studio all week. I was feeling a bit down about it all when a flood of words and ideas came to me.

    Devil On My Shoulder is definitely an introspective piece. Clearly I'd been spending way too much time with my own thoughts.

    I've given my reflection and my head-space a personality in previous songs. This time I went so far as to put that personality into a black suit. Thankfully he appears to be on my side.


    lyrics


    There’s a man in a black suit following me
    He’s reading my fortunes and he’s reading me my misery
    He knows where I live and he knows where I sleep
    At night he sits outside my door and he watches over me

    Sometimes I can’t sleep at night
    There’s a devil on my shoulder hanging on for dear life
    Sometimes I can’t sleep at night
    With each turn of the page, with each turn of the cheek
    with each turn of the tide I loose another place to hide

    I saw him watching from under the tress across the street
    That’s when I noticed the lines and the look upon his face and I swear it startled me
    He’s full of worry but he comes back, time and again
    I’m starting to wonder, maybe he’s my only friend

    Sometimes I can’t sleep at night
    Is there a devil on my shoulder or is that just the street light?
    Sometimes I can’t sleep at night
    With each roll of the dice, with each roll of the punches
    with each roll of the deep blue night, I loose another little piece of light

    I don’t recall when it all began
    Or when he started following me
    I thought, he was only there, whenever I was down
    I’ve come to realise he’s my strength in my time of need

    Sometimes I can’t sleep at night
    There’s a devil on my shoulder hanging on for dear life
    Sometimes I can’t sleep at night
    With each turn of the page, with each turn of the cheek
    with each turn of the tide I loose another

    Sometimes I can’t sleep at night
    Is there a devil on my shoulder or is that just the street light?
    Sometimes I can’t sleep at night
    With each roll of the dice, with each roll of the punches
    with each roll of the deep blue night

    I find another little piece of light
