"Devil Delight" as written by and Wilson/wilson....
Come on down from the top of the mountain, flowing
Doin` the slow slide into town, keep on going
Darkness dancers get down, heavily hoping
Stroking the stone soul, loving, drinking and doping

Like a blind moth looking for color in the lights
Dance in the spotlight, I feel alright
Just my devil, my devil delight

I've seen those midnight ladies just for the moment`s using
She keep on playing, never know whether she`s losing it
He got those sexy green eyes, clicking the trigger, no warning
It`s all gonna come rolling back in the morning

You might feel me burning all night
Like a dirty demon daughter, don`t put up no fight
I dance in the spotlight, I`m alright
It`s just my devil, my devil delight

Lover and fool, glass and jewel, the potion
Comedy, tragedy, making the game, emotion
On your toes, do the gambling roll for your fortune
We fall for love from up above to the ocean

    General Comment"Come on down from the top of the mountain, flowing"

    Falling for something




    "Doin` the slow slide into town, keep on going"

    Falling in front of society, losing control



    "Darkness dancers get down, heavily hoping"

    Dancing is searching for emotional connection, heavily hoping for what?


    "Stroking the stone soul, loving, drinking and doping"

    The "stone soul" would be the hard part of one's soul. Drinking and doping implies you are preparing yourself to quiet your conscience about this downward slide.

    "Like a blind moth looking for color in the lights"

    This is obviously a reference to instinctual or nonthinking behavior



    "Dance in the spotlight, I feel alright"

    Quoting someone in such a state of acting out without thinking.

    "Just my devil, my devil delight"

    Need I say more?


    "I've seen those midnight ladies just for the moment`s using"

    Now her point-of-view changes from taunting the women she is appealing to, to a third-party view, commenting that they are being used when they "hook up" (which is the ultimate goal, whether for short or long-term).


    "She keep on playing, never know whether she`s losing it"

    Further supporting all of the above points.


    "He got those sexy green eyes, clicking the trigger, no warning"

    Possibly changing POV back again, while adding details.

    "It`s all gonna come rolling back in the morning"

    Call to caution

    "You might feel me burning all night
    Like a dirty demon daughter, don`t put up no fight"

    This is a bit odd, paraphrasing the man using her own language and POV.

    "I dance in the spotlight, I`m alright
    It`s just my devil, my devil delight"

    Denial of the victim.

    "Lover and fool, glass and jewel, the potion"

    The dangerous man and willing victim, and the tools.

    "Comedy, tragedy, making the game, emotion"

    Redundant commentary to balance the phrase lengths.

    "On your toes, do the gambling roll for your fortune"

    Same as line above.

    "We fall for love from up above to the ocean"

    This is a closing reference to the opening line, "Come on down from the top of the mountain"

    This song is about the "fall from grace" caused by giving in to temptation. The context is sex, directed at women.
