Demon in My Lover’s Skin

Pre- Chorus: ( ECBA power)  7575
Here you stand in front of me
A demon in the skin of my lover
Whispered lies that I want to hear
Dripping from your silver tongue

Chorus:( GAE 12 fret ; GAB power) 3512357
Bearer of gifts, I understand you all too well
You can not cast and catch me in your spell                                technique:(breath)
Appear from the jaws of death, a devil, not a man
Forget not, my father trusted you and died by your hand        technique: (breath)
You now can not drag me into your hell

Verse 1: ( E Emin Emaj Amaj)
You can not tempt me as you only pretend
To be my lover to still  be my friend
I am not a foolish school girl
That you can bring flowers
You’re a disciple from hell
You’re possessed have evil powers

Pre- Chorus:
Here you stand in front of me
A demon in the skin of my lover
Whispered lies that I want to hear
Dripping from your silver tongue

Chorus:
Bearer of gifts, I understand you all too well
You can not cast and catch me in your spell
Appear from the jaws of death, a devil, not a man
Forget not, my father trusted you and died by your hand
You now can not drag me into your hell

Verse 2
My heart wants to listen to what you say
But you destroy all that gets in your way
Your words brainwashed our only daughter
And then you shrewdly stabbed and killed father

Pre- Chorus:
Here you stand in front of me
A demon in the skin of my lover
Whispered lies that I want to hear
Dripping from your silver tongue

Chorus:
Bearer of gifts, I understand you all too well
You can not cast and catch me in your spell
Appear from the jaws of death, a devil, not a man
Forget not, my father trusted you and died by your hand

Verse 3( Bridge) Chord are staccato
I stopped being your lover, your wife
When you stabbed father, when you took his life
An eye for an eye makes everything right
Justice means your death by your own knife

Pre- Chorus:
Here you stand in front of me
A demon in the skin of my lover
Whispered lies that I want to hear
Dripping from your silver tongue

Chorus:

Bearer of gifts, I understand you all too well
You can not cast and catch me in your spell
Appear from the jaws of death, a devil, not a man
Forget not, my father trusted you and died by your hand

You now can not drag me into your hell
You now can not drag me into your hell

My heart does sting wants to believe the lies
I must remind myself I did the right thing
