Alexz Johnson - Running With The Devil Lyrics




Looking up straight
Find a hand on his shoulder
Trying to find his way through the city
Crawling through an alley
On the floor by your door
Needing help with the feeling
That he's had before

Never calling anyone, feeling unloved
Saying goodbye
Life is better when you're high
Nevermind when you're there
Cause they never play fair
They never play fair

Maybe you will, maybe you won't
Turn the clock around now
You think it's always better, but it won't
Take you away up out of here
Standing on the tracks
For someone to appear

Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil instead

Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil instead

Memories hurt
Even more when you're burnt
Like you're walking on a tightrope
Having no hope
Looking down for a face or smell
When you find it there, you fell

Writing neat letters to yourself
Maybe this one will help
Give it all away and hurt yourself
When you're done see
What it was all about
See the hurt didn't help

Your heart's letting you down
Feeling unfound
Like you're running in a race
No end in sight
Everyday has a night
Every night has another fight

Steal me, put me in your pocket
I'll be there
Take me out when you can't shout
Can't find a reason why you're here
Send you to a place
Where the brave win the race

Maybe you will, maybe you won't
Turn the clock around now
You think it's always better, but it won't
Take you away up out of here
Standing on the tracks
For someone to appear

Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil instead

Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil instead

And you run, you run, you run
You run, you run, you run

Maybe you will, maybe you won't
Turn the clock around now
You think it's always better, but it won't
Take you away up out of here
Standing on the tracks
For someone to appear

Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil instead

Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil
Running with the devil instead

Yeah, yeah, yea
Yeah, yeah, yea
Yeah, yeah, yea
Yea

    Been while since i've listened to the basement recordings is this a newer version?

    Christian Gulley

    yes she is rerecording her original weight album that was shelved https://soundcloud.com/alexzjohnsononline/sets/weight-alexz-johnson

  16. Christian Gulley

    Love the song but i admit i miss the harmonies, feels a bit blank and flat without the harmonies around the song and or in the bridge, like an unfinished demo, but otherwise love the song.

  17. Andreas Dutter - brividolibro

    ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  18. Daniela Calderón

    The talent of this woman! 💟

  19. edualexz

    Yo have no idea how your music has helped me through the years, I'm in love with every song, with your voice, you are a beautiful gift for us and I hope someday you'd come to Mexico. I love you Alexz!!

    Mariana Yanes

    Te entiendo 100% es mi cantante favorita y mi sueño es que venga a México algún día ✨❤️

    Valeria N

    Ojalá , algún día <3

  20. Sparkles Spaz

    Now I'm just so excited to hear the rest of the album. It feels amazing as a fan to hear these tracks finally, so I know it must feel out of this world as the creator of this art to finally release it, the way you intended.

    XHorrorFiles

    CHICAGO <3

  21. MC Godard

    Loving the new version!

  22. Winston W

    I remember this song! Great work! Keep it up!

  23. Jes Checo

    I love how you found a way to make it fresh- will forever be an amazing song! Love you Alexz!

  24. Elvick

    Words can't describe how I, and I'm sure many long time fans, feel about hearing these songs being given a new breath of life and being officially released. Being able to buy this album will be a wonderful moment.

  25. Александр Новиков

    Wow, it's 100% hit!!! Good work!

  26. Saraaah23

    I'm so happy to hear this song in its new form. The original version will always always be my favorite song ever and will forever have a special place in my heart. This new version sounds nice but almost like a completely new song, especially at the end. Thanks for creating beautiful things, keep doing what you're doing, it's magic to my ears.

  27. m a

    I've always loved this song. Glad you got to redo it.

  28. Nashe S

    Alexz deserves so much more recognition. Her voice is amazing. 😭🙌💕

  29. Tommy Adair

    Awesome song!

  30. Camila Morales

    This doesn't make you feel chills like the original did and I kind of miss the harmonies and the drums, and I'm not a fan of the echoes.
    Still, I'll always be here, listening, supporting, buying your art. You deserve that in your life only for being such an inspirational part in mine.

    Marta Hoffmann

    I just don't understand what's the point of redoing these songs over and over again. We had Voodoo, then Reloaded, then The Basement Recordings I, and now this one.
    I love Alexz and I support her every possible way, but it just feels like Instant Star episode "Not An Addict"....
    When "Let 'Em Eat Cake" and "Skipping Stone" and "Stranger Times" have such a wonderful songs that didn't have to be remixed over and over again.

    Kalen Yerkey

    Yeah..having 3 versions of 1 song is a lot. Let Em Eat Cake was incredible and ive been just waiting for more new stuff like that

    XHorrorFiles

    Her dream was one day to be able to release the album 'Weight'. Unfortunately the songs belonged to EPIC records!

    XHorrorFiles

    I think she got the domain of all the songs <3

    XHorrorFiles

    Funny to see people complaining! In 2011 my dream was to see Alexz paying attention to the old songs! I'm anxious for all the 'Weight' songs' ESPECIALLY 'CHICAGO <3 <3 <3

  31. ShowYourSelf

    Great song, I love it the new version 😍... but I also want new songs 😊

  32. The Prettiest Dogs

    Very well done Alexz! 💙 You're an amazing artist! This song is a BOP 🔥 I love it 🥰
