"The Devil" as written by Lars Christensen, Jeppe Wessberg Christensen, Morten Toft Hansen, Jesper Tilsted, Jesper Meinby Kvist and Lars Vognstrup....
In the light of my darkness

I took the devil off my train
He laughed and got back in the game
He started messing with my head
And threw a pretty girl out of my bed

Though I smile to my man downstairs

I took a chance and started a fight
With a girl from the other side
He put me in a bad bad light
And she only stayed for one night

In the light of my darkness
You'll see me smile to my man downstairs
He's just a part of what life is
The part of you who just don't care

I took the devil off my train
He laughed and got back in the game
He started messing with my head
And threw a pretty girl out of my bed
I pushed the devil off the road
Did 180 and watched the car explde
The light wave blinded my eyes
The devil messed up my life

    General CommentOk, I've kind of got this figured out... kinda.

    So obviously a guy 'beats' the devil. The devil then came back and caused a car crash that kill his girlfriend/wife. And thus the devil had it's revenge. The only thing I can't figure out is what the devil is. It may be literal, but I doubt it. I think the devil is either drugs or alcohol (isn't it always). The line "and she only stayed for one night" is like he slipped and ended up doing it again. And of course, being intoxicated/high he crashed resulting in the death of the "pretty girl" who was thrown out of his bed.
