lyrics

The devil sat on my shoulder, a little sparrow bird
A bird who never sang, slowly, lowly, he whispered
He said, "Dear boy, dear loving boy, dear lover, have you heard?
You're losing her"

"She's standing by the window, she's a daydream in her eye
She's staring down the street to where the sidewalk meets the sky
She wants to say she's sorry, she wants to say goodbye
You're losing her"

"You're losing her in pieces, you're losing her so slow
She seeps away like water, you do not see her go
You're losing her so gently you'd never even know
You're losing her"

My sparrow stopped his speaking, he spread his bat-like wings
I said, "Devil, please don't leave me, I'll give you everything that I have left
My darling devil, I cannot go on living
Knowing I'm losing her"

"Show me to the contract, show me where to sign
Devil please don't leave me..." but already he was flying away
He said, "Dear loving boy, your soul's already mine
And still you're losing her"
