Between Heaven and Hell

Between Heaven and Hell

I hope you know what you’re in for, boy
When you asked me to be yours
Don’t think this is some lover’s game
That you can stop, start and pause

I think you knew it from the start
You wanted to be mine
You got a pencil for your life
And drew out all your lines

I told you I’m a wanderer
So chase me at your own risk
But once you have me, don’t let me go
For you’ve never loved like this

Like love that makes you levitate
That binds you in a spell
And you know that there’s no turning back
As we rock between heaven and hell

I’ll light a fire in your eyes
Like I’m something you’ve waited for
You’ll wonder how you ever lived
Without me here before

I warn you I’m the devil, boy
For I’ll get into your mind
I’m temptation tonguing innocence
And you don’t know what you’ll find

Did you know what you were asking for?
When you asked me to be yours
‘Cause I feel you falling deeper
And I know that you want more

I tried to keep a distance
But your persistence ravished me
Your heart beats faster in your chest
As you watch emotion bleed

I hope you know what you fell for, boy
I’m more than just a prize
You think that I’m an angel
But I’m the devil in disguise.
