lyrics

She ain't killin it for the sunshine
light fades on this town
she ain't killin it for the dream

She's got most friends, she's got no friends
when she's all alone and
there ain't no space in between

Well maybe sometimes it's set in stone
and they say 'why you've got no business here'
but she says 'i've just got to feed, the devil inside
cos evil doesn't work for free

Her flowing clothes, her afterglow
it's neon at midnight
the boundless charms of the unknown
Run down hotels, hourly motels
tinted windows giving call
flash desire right through to dawn

Tomorrows plans they can't withstand
a chance to compromise
all she knows how to give
her tiresome feet on wasted streets
thinks back ten years
stealing time to fantasize

Well maybe sometimes it's set in stone
and they say 'why you've got no business here'
but she says 'i've just got to feed, the devil inside
cos evil doesn't work for free

Well maybe sometimes it's set in stone
and they say 'why you've got no business here'
but she says 'i've just got to feed, the devil inside
cos evil doesn't work for free
no evil doesn't work for free

She ain't killing it for the dream
