“I thought I saw the devil, this morning Looking in the mirror, drop of rum on my tongue With the warning to help me see myself clearer I never meant to start a fire, I never meant to make you bleed, I’ll be a better man today
I’ll be good, I’ll be good And I’ll love the world, like I should Yeah, I’ll be good, I’ll be good For all of the times that I never could.
My past has tasted bitter for years now, So I wield an iron fist Grace is just weakness Or so I’ve been told. I’ve been cold, I’ve been merciless But the blood on my hands scares me to death Maybe I’m waking up today
I’ll be good, I’ll be good And I’ll love the world, like I should I’ll be good, I’ll be good I’ll be good, I’ll be good For all of the light that I shut out For all of the innocent things that I’ve doubt For all of the bruises that I’ve caused and the tears For all of the things that I’ve done all these years Yeah, for all of the sparks that I’ve stomped out For all of the perfect things that I doubt”
