Demons In Your Darkness
Lyrics
Demons In Your Darkness
Bob Bentley
Key: F (Dm)
BPM: 85

Verse 1. You tell me that your frightened, you say you've got the blues
But I can't look you in the eye
When everyone you deal with always has to lose
I don't know why you're so surprised

Chorus You got demons in your darkness
They're trying to take control
You got demons in your darkness
Inside your very soul

Verse 2. I've seen you in action, I've seen how they believe
I've seen just how the innocent get hurt
When you're only getting pleasure from your power to deceive
By grinding other people in the dirt

Chorus There are demons in your darkness
They're trying to take control
You got demons in your darkness
Inside your very soul

Bridge Yes they're out there in the darkness and you never really know
when they might just appear
When you're falling for someone those demons seem to show
That's what you really fear, that's what you really fear

Verse 3. So you're out there in the darkness with people you don't know
Your not inclined to move towards the light
There's no way of knowing just how far this will go
No one else can win your fight

Chorus You got demons in your darkness
They're trying to take control
You got demons in your darkness
They're in your very soul

Bridge So you tell me you can't help it, it was always meant to be
Part of some evil plan
But if you've got the will, you've got the power
to decide your destiny
Baby you don't give a damn, you don't give a damn

Guitar solo

Bridge Yes they're out there in the darkness and you never really know
when they might just appear
When you're falling for someone those demons seem to show
That's what you really fear, that's what you really fear

Demons in you darkness, demons in your darkness

Story Behind the Song:
Written back in 2003 and originally recorded on a 4 track cassette deck, the song has been resurrected and re-recorded in Feb 2015. It has always been one of my favourites because it just rolled out with a great rock groove and the style lends itself to my guitar playing.
