When I was a child a story was told
about the devil and a girl so bold
He offered her riches, a fortune of gold
and lover's abound

But she lifted her soul, she lifted her soul
all clean, oh clean
And like the story was told
on a dark country road
the same man appeared to me

But I reached
I reached
through the rain to the devil's feet

Now 20 years later to the place I return
Where I scourned the angels for a passion that burned
There set in the tree a knot twisted and turned
The face of a creature hell bound

So long ago could my mind have played jokes on me
As darkness sets in unavoidable sin
The truth i try not to believe

That i reached
i reached
Through the rain to the devil's feet

That i reached
i reached
Through the rain to the devil's feet

    General Commenti can't believe no one's written anything about this song yet!! It's so beautiful and sad and chilling.... just think if your soul was doomed because of a stupid mistake you make when you were young and foolish... her voice carries out the emotion wonderfuly.

    General CommentThis song is beautifully written. Orenda Fink is a genius.

    I think the song explains itself, but should be given the credit it deserves.
