"Devil's Daughter" as written by Oliver J. Leiber and Y ....
Hell of an angel
Skin that shines like pearl
Eyes that make your soul bleed
Innocent and sweet
Your friends surely agree
Like candy she's a real treat
But sugar's far from calm
I don't mean to alarm
By the time you blink
The shit kicks in

I'm walkin' up the stairs
My heart's beating fast
Following her legs
To her thighs
To her yeah, yeah, yeah

I went to bed with an angel
At least that's what she said
But as she tore off her dress
Lord I must confess
I got the devil's daughter
I got the devil's daughter in my bed

Like a knife at my throat
I like the way that she gropes
Her curves make my blood swim my veins
Her pain comes in doses
Till you're one step closer
Then you're completely insane
Hung by a halo and stabbed by horns
Then she'll tell you they're both the same

I'm walkin' up the stairs
My heart's beating fast
Following her legs
To her thighs
To her yeah, yeah, yeah

I went to bed with an angel
At least that's what she said
But as she tore off her dress
Lord I must confess
I got the devil's daughter

    General CommentI've been hearing this song on the radio for a month or two now, and I'm loving it. It has a very Southern-Rock feel to it. However, as far as I know, these guys are New Englanders (though, feel free to correct me, as I'm not sure where I heard that).

    As far as the meaning, I think it's rather straightforward. Sometimes the "angel" types aren't quite so angelic as they might seem.

    General Commenti read an interview with the band, they said this song is about the music industry today. when they first got into it everything seemed great, but as they started getting their feet wet they realized it isnt all they were told it is

    General Commentyeah what ufo69chevelle is basicly right, but this what they said on the website that its about

    “Devil’s Daughter”: I was using a girl here as a metaphor for how I was feeling about the music industry. When you start out in a band, things seem to look the way they are. But as you really get involved, you start to see that about 90 percent of it is marketing. It’s bullshit; it’s just not cool. The song goes: “I went to bed with an angel/ At least that’s what she said/ But as she tore off her dress/ Lord I must confess/ I’ve got the devil’s daughter in my bed.” It’s about waking up and realizing, I walked into this thinking it was one thing, and it’s not. A lot of people get into relationships really quickly and a week later, this person they thought loved them isn’t even returning their calls.

    General CommentWhy do these bands always have to talk about the damn music industry... Why can't they leave it about some girl who outside looks real nice but when you get her in bed she is crazy.

    General Commentok... the song may be about the music industry, but to me i'm going with the interpretation of it as a song about a girl who looks really nice and sweet but is really the naughtiest girl around :-)

    General CommentSaw them play this at a show with 3 doors down and breaking benjamin on my 21st birthday (statesboro, GA). it was funny the lead singer kept trying to get the girls to flash him and he got totally blown off by all the college girls.
