Regrets collect like old friends, here to relive your darkest moments. And all of the ghouls come out to play, and every demon wants his pound of flesh. But I like to keep some things to myself. I like to keep my issues drawn. It’s always darkest before the dawn.
And I’ve been a fool, and I’ve been blind. I can never leave the past behind. I’m always dragging that horse around. Tonight I’m gonna bury that horse in the ground. So I like to keep my issues drawn, but it’s always darkest before the dawn.
It’s hard to dance with the Devil on your back,
Given half the chance, would I take any of it back?
It’s a fine romance, but it’s left me so undone
It’s always darkest before the dawn.
I am done with my graceless heart, so tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart.
And I’m damned if I do, and I’m damned if I don’t, so here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road. And I’m ready to suffer, and I’m ready to hope.
It’s hard to dance with the Devil on your back, so shake him off.
