Love Song (Your Devil) [Explicit]

by Richard Paez

I have your devil
right here, waiting
for you to sing again
['cause haven't you missed him
haven't you missed him]

[wrapping your fingers
'round the strings of
another instrument
plucking at songs
you only kind of remember]

Your devil, you run from
your devil's in the spaces
you seek to avoid him
['cause haven't you missed him
haven't you missed him]

[wrapping your lips
'round the neck of
another instrument
crying out songs
you only kind of remember]

it's hard to find the words
but the rhythm can't escape you:

(all the prayers you've ever made
to gods you don't believe in
and your sore, red knees
supporting your whole world)

{I have your devil
right here waiting
for you to sing
again}

Author's Note: Much more an attempt at a short lyric than a poem, though I have no idea who I'd want to sing it...

Either way it's tremendous.

Strains of Lou Reed...or Leonard Cohen in the vein of 'Waiting for the Miracle'...and now I need a drink!
