Lyrics

Wisdom
I carry with me words of wisdom passed along to me from a stranger
Who told me that no one can ever really have her cake and a belly full.
You'll find yourself in many situations that will fool you into thinking
There's no harm in testing out the saying just to see if it’s really true.
And it may seem like it’s worth a try
But you just might get caught up in the tangle of another lie
So best walk straight past the devil before he makes a devil of you.
It’s not that you can’t ever take a calculated risk or make a quick decision
And I’m not saying you should always walk away when it’s getting fun
Just make sure that you keep track of when it’s time to make a smooth and easy exit
And leave yourself the space to not get burned when you are passing by.
It sure may look very good to you
But can you come up with the payment when the note is due
If not, best walk straight past the devil before he makes a devil of you.
And he might have the same smile and the same line
That had swept you off your feet one December
And offer you a second chance to turn the past around and make it right.
And he sure looks very good from here
But I know that there’s trouble waiting when the man is near
So, I’m gonna walk straight past the devil before he makes a devil of me.
I’m gonna walk straight past the devil before he makes a devil of me.
I’m gonna walk straight past the devil before he makes a devil of me.
