Airborne Toxic Event, The - Hell And Back Lyrics




I held on as long as I could possibly
My blind faith pushing me to my knees
I felt the warmth of a touch
And it made me believe
And I knew it well

I stood at the doorway hoping you might let me in
My head spinning 'round
My nerves jumping from my skin
I felt the stinging ragged cold
Of the devil's hot embrace
And I knew it well

And you took me to hell and back
How many times can I walk away from you?
My mind's like a one way track
And every one is taking me back to you
And you tell me "Just one more time"
And you're lying like you always do
And I know it well

I must have walked a thousand miles or more tryin' to keep you off my mind
I've knocked on a thousand doors I'm sure, just to see what I might find
I slept in the arms of a fallen angel cryin' next to me
And I knew her well

And you took me to hell and back
How many times can I walk away from you?
My mind's like a one way track
And every one is taking me back to you
And you tell me "Just one more time"
And you're lying like you always do
And you give me just one more line and there’s nothing that I can do
If I do it just one more time, then I swear that I’ll be through
Yeah I know it well

And you took me to hell and back
My mind's like a one way track
And you tell me "Just one more time"
And you're lying like you always do
Yeah I know it well

And you took me to hell and back
How many times can I walk away from you?
My mind's like a one way track
And every one is taking me back to you
And you tell me "Just one more time"
And you're lying like you always do
And you give me just one more line and there’s nothing that I can do
If I do it just one more time, then I swear that I’ll be through
Yeah I know it well
Yeah I know it well

    I held on as long as I could possibly 
    My blind faith pushing me to my knees
    I felt the warmth of a touch 
    and it made me believe
    I knew it well

    I stood at the doorway hoping you might let me in
    My head spinning 'round
    My nerves jumping from my skin
    I felt the stinging ragged cold of the devil's heart embrace
    And I knew it well

    And you took me to hell and back
    How many times can I walk away from you
    My mind's like a one way track 
    And every one is taking me back to you 
    And you tell me just one more time
    and you'll lie like you always do
    And I know it well

    My mind's like a one way track 
    And every one is taking me back to you 
    And you tell me just one more time
    and you'll lie like you always do
    and I needed just one more lie then there's nothing that I can do
    and I need it just one more time then I swear that I'll be through
    And I know it well

    And you took me to hell and back
    My mind's like a one way track
    And you tell me just one more time 
    and you'll lie like you always do

  60. GiggityNinja

    This is definitely not bad. It's just not the cup of tea I'd prefer to be sipping when I tune into The Airborne Toxic Event. If a whole album was filled with this music, I wouldn't be very thrilled. Good job exploring though guys.

    Love this song. Sounded fantastic in Leeds a few weeks back and sounds just as good here!
