"Lightning Man" lyrics - THE PRETENDERS

THE PRETENDERS
"Lightning Man"

The demons got the better of you
That's what demons do
The demons can't destroy, nothing can
Destroy the soul or rise above the lightning of a music man

We had a rich and wild adventure
Life in love and melody
Battle and we ruled it
Recorded every felony
Think that they can have you
[?] and confused

The demons got the better of you (better of you, better of you)
Well, that's what demons do (demons do, demons do)
The demons can't destroy, nothing can
Destroy the soul or rise above the lightning of a music man

Oh, and the soul of a man wrestles with the pack
Seems like an advantage when they're going to attack
And nothing can can reign, above the music in the heart

It was always [?] no use denying it
Devil offered something, you were up for trying it
Stashed it in the grooves, now we're dancing to the beat

The demons got the better of you (better of you, better of you)
Well, that's what demons do
(Better of you)
(Better of you)
(Demons do)
But demons can't destroy you, can't destroy you, nothing can

The justice swift
In name and soul and spirit
The justice swift
And we're standing by, we're standing by

The demons got the better of you (better of you, better of you)
Well, that's what demons do (demons do, demons do)
The demons can't destroy, nothing can
Destroy the soul or rise above the lightning of a music man
