LyricsEdit

Sea gobbles up the full sun 
And I look at you and I know you're the one
The one I used to know something about
And I try to say what it was but the words won't come out
And you ask me to hold you
That's the devil's work

You show your palms and I see they're empty 
And I'd check them twice if you'd let me
But you wouldn't do that now would you?
I didn't think so
And you ask me to hold you
That's the devil's work

We stand on the sand and we watch the world turn
And we stand on the sand and we watch the water burn
And we stand on the sand six inches from one another
And the sands burn and blow but neither one of us runs for cover
And you ask me to hold you
That's the devil's work
And you ask me to hold you
But that's the devil's work
