40 days and 40 nights
That's how long you've been gone
Delivered from temptation
But the battle's far from won

Like a thief in the night
You've been lurking round my door
Trying to strip my armor down
To let you in once more

It's like arguing with the Devil
Fighting for my soul
You're the one addiction
That shakes my self control
You come on like an angel of light
But your heart is bent on sin
It's like arguing with the devil

You're the master of deceivers
All it takes is just one bite
The forbidden fruit you're pushin'
Is giving me an appetite

You need someone to devour
And I, your helpless prey
Need divine intervention
To help keep you away
To help keep you away

repeat chorus twice

Get behind me Devil
