"Devil in My Life" as written by Grace Jones, Ivor Guest and Leo Ross....
Speak of the devil and he will appear

Isn’t it a crying shame how you became
Isn’t it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life
Isn’t it a crying shame how you became
Isn’t it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life

Welcome in tonight, wide open arms
Freeze dried smile, fixed in a frame of spite
Drop your names just like a bomb campaign
Collaborate while being exploited
And we celebrate by drinking poison

Rolled back my eyes tonight, called you inside
Tied my tongue, tried to stop all your lies
I ask myself, who am i?
Am i forever cast in your mold?

Devil in my life, treading on thin ice
With your words so wise, always in disguise
Devil in your eyes, i’ve seen it in your lies
Slowly mesmerized, as i fall you rise

Devil in my life, treading on thin ice
With your words so wise, always in disguise
Devil in your eyes, i’ve seen it in your lies
Slowly mesmerized, as i fall you rise

Isn’t it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life
Isn’t it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life
Isn’t it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life
Isn’t it a crying shame how you became

You’re the architect of my destruction...

Tears that fell tonight, your power fed
We slit our wrist, but it was you we bled
Gathered your minions to tell us that we are blessed
No one even dares to suggest we are so powerless

Devil in my life, treading on thin ice
With your words so wise, always in disguise
Devil in your eyes, i’ve seen it in your lies
Slowly mesmerized, as i fall you rise

Devil in my life, treading on thin ice (You’re the architect of my destruction)
With your words so wise, always in disguise (The implement of my corruption)
Devil in your eyes, i’ve seen it in your lies (You’re the architect of my destruction)
Slowly mesmerized, as i fall you rise (The implement of my corruption)

Devil in my life (You’re the architect of my destruction)
ohh devil (The implement of my corruption)
Devil in my life (You’re the architect of my destruction)
ohh devil (The implement of my corruption)
The devil...
In my life...
