I asked my wife to stop living
In a world that's just(me,me,me)
So she could get a glimpse of a different world
That she could never see
For the first week or two it really seemed to take effect
Then I began to notice something
From that slight case of neglect
One day her anger raged
As if she was "hiding the devil inside"
I guess there was no place left for him
Inside of her to hide
I reminded her of that attitude
She was useing with a flare
That was when she explode saying,
"I don't F'ing care"
My heart was pierced and my words
Could no longer flow
I was a passenger in the car
So I had nowhere left to go
The car went silent
Not a single word was left to be said
Though I sure had plenty words
Bouncing around in my head
Then she said "Why are we arguing?
"I really hate fighting with you?"
With a smile :o) I said "It's the devil"
"And that's what he wants us to do!"
As I sighed to release the anger
That was brewing up inside
I realized my heart was a sacred place
Where the devil,just can't hide
