"Devilish Ways" as written by and Jarrod Gorbel....
Devilish ways
Watches aim
Slowly replaced innocence
Was it safe,
taking out that age?

I'm not blaming you
But I'm not staying,
not staying true

Too young when your mother died
You did not even cry
Just wondered where she'd gone

Ever, ever since that day
You have been too afraid
To ever sleep alone

She won't let go
No matter what I say or do
How'd I become everyone that once abandoned you?
What will it take to put you at ease?

Too young when your mother died
You did not even cry
Just wondered where she'd gone

Ever, ever since that day
You have been too afraid
To ever sleep alone

Unaccountable for all that you suffer
I don't have the strength to make it go away
Just what sets you off
And saved you before us
Or am I just the cause,
a trigger for the worst?

You would beg, steal, or borrow
Keep yourself
Here tomorrow
No, I don't really want to have to break your heart

You would beg, steal, or borrow
Keep yourself
Here tomorrow
No, I don't really want to have to break your heart

And there's something I need,
I need to tell you
If I don't come clean,
I'd be leading you on

And there's something I need,
I need to tell you
If I don't come clean,
I'd be leading you on

    General CommentI think this is about a relationship that he is in with a damaged person, and in the process of him trying to help, he is just becoming damaged as well

    General Commentthis song makes me cry, i lost my mother when i was 9, and i didnt cry at the funeral, i tried to be strong..

    i can empathize with who he is singing about, because it made me a really needy person.. always needing to be around people. and feeling like you have been abandoned by people you love, and putting all your love and energy into someone, whether it be the right person or not.

    it's just a beautiful and sad song.
