Lyrics
Devil and the Girl of My Dreams
Mike Lacey 2012


Girl's making me crazy
Like playing with fire
Feel a little fear, like it when she's near
Wrestling with doubt and desire
Sometimes she's an angel
Tells me I'm the one
Then she turns around, laughs and puts me down
Acting like it's innocent fun
Chorus
Sweet and sour loving, trying to figure out what it means
She can be a devil, . . . and the girl of my dreams
<2 bar harp>
When we got together
Was like it's meant to be
Held each other tight, kissing through the night
Thinking she's the woman for me
Then I saw some changes
Mood would shift like the wind
Telling me to stay, pushing me away
Wishing that the drama would end
Chorus- solo <4 bars> (EGA 3 EGD) x2
I was gonna surprise her
With flowers and wine
Standing by her home, heard she ain't alone
Left feeling cheated and blind
Later on I asked her
What the hell's going on
Said he's just a friend, smiled and asked me in
We were there together til dawn
Chorus- "Yeah she can be a devil . . ."
