"Devil In Me" as written by and Kate Elizabeth Voegele....
Far in the distance
This is the view from the other side
How did I let this pass me by?
You took me from granted,
Blended thorns in this garden of mine
What are the chances my hope has died?
Didn't have mercy
You unnerved me
I don't deserve this pain, no

So don't break my heart
I ain't never done
Nothing to deserve this
I'm torn apart
You've had your part
Do you suppose I earned it?
Do you not see
How I'm begging on my knees?
No don't speak, don't breathe,
You bring out the Devil in me

Thinking it over
Those were days dark as ebony nights
The end of October seemed like a life time
I had a suspicion
But didn't want to believe you a lie
You had a mission
To prove me right

You took my trust
Ground it to dust
Found out I know better yea yeah

So don't break my heart
I ain't never done
Nothing to deserve this
I'm torn apart
You've had your part
Do you suppose I earned it?
Do you not see
How I'm begging on my knees?
No don't speak, don't breathe,
You bring out the Devil in me

And I don't wanna feel the pain
And I don't want another day
Shackled to your ball and chain
You're entirely a pain
And I'm so tired of explaining
The sensation I've known over time

I don't ever care that there is
No charity in your heart
Could you spare me, I've done my part? Yeah

So don't break my heart
I ain't never done
Nothing to deserve this
I'm torn apart
You've had your part
Do you suppose I earned it?
Do you not see
How I'm begging on my knees?
No don't speak, don't breathe,
You bring out the Devil in me

So don't break my heart
I ain't never done
Nothing to deserve this
I'm torn apart
You've had your part
Do you suppose I earned it?
Do you not see
How I'm begging on my knees?
No don't speak, don't breathe,
You bring out the Devil in me

    General CommentI think this is about a girl who was dating a boy and was completely in love and then he dumped her. I think the line "you bring out the devil in me" has two meanings: 1. that he's not good for her and they had an unhealthy relationship and she knew it, but didn't want to believe it. The lines "Thinking it over/Those were days dark as ebony nights/The end of October seemed like a life time/I had a suspicion/But didn't want to believe you a liar/You had a mission/To prove me right." show this.

    2) That she's not acting like herself now because she's in so much pain and doesn't know why he dumped her. She's doing things that she doesn't want to do -- "Do you not see how I'm begging on my knees/Don't speak, don't breathe/you bring out the devil in me"

    General CommentOk this song is way too awesome! and so is Kate !!!

    I'm not entirely sure about the meaning of the lyrics though, but I think it may be about a relationship that has ended (not on good terms)...and the girl is saying that she does not deserve all this pain ...

    whatever... I can't believe I'm the first one to comment on this song!!! Com'on, you guys !!

    General Commentpersonally I think this song is about a girl and a boy who have been dating, when suddenly the boy dumps the girl in a really mean way and she's asking why he thinks she deserved that and then maybe she is looking back and sees how she acted when she was with this boy and realized that he brought "out the devil in me"

    General CommentIm thinking that it could be a girl who really liked this guy and he lead her on to believe something was going to happen, and he got her to trust him, then he says he doesn't like her......idk thats how i see it... the ones above me seem like it could be it too.. idk every one interprets songs in there own way.

    General CommentThis song is amazing and I agree it needs more comments. I think that the song is about a relationship. I think that someone has caused their lover extreme pain somehow (most likely cheating), and the lover gave them a second chance and waited around for them to change. No matter what the other person kept waiting for the change and their companion kept the old ways and never changed. I think this song shows the development of someone realizing that they are stuck in some type of self inflicted hell because they want to stay to see if the change happens yet they hate who they become while doing so. Its like they are torn between good and evil and because they are waiting for some miracle to happen and it doesn't they lose hope and they realize how awful they have become. I could be so wrong, but thats what it feels like to me.
