Devil is a Lie Song Lyrics

Devil is a Lie by Tommy Richman


Ah-ah
Oh, no
Ah-ah
Oh, no (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Verse 1]
I tell her, "Pipe down, baby," hell nah (Yeah)
You know my roundabouts, baby, hell nah (Yeah)
It's where I came from baby, hell nah (Yeah)
It's 'cause I'm cut from a different cloth (Mm, yeah)
I can take you places you ain't ever seen before (Mm)
Ah, ah (Woo, woo, mm)
You're moving so loud, that is not my goal, hell nah (Mm)

[Chorus]
But you got no confidence, lately (Mm, mm)
Really wanna run around and chase me (Mm, mm)
I'm not no Travis, baby, not no Chase B (Ah, ah, ah)
I work too hard, can you f**kin' pay me?

[Verse 2]
I did so much, you did it with me, and I'm not alone (Ah, ah, ah)
Since 2019, you're doin' this with me, I'ma set it in stone (Ah, ah, ah)
You come from a sunken place again (Ah, ah, ah)
You know the struggle, baby, can we be friends? (Ah, ah, ah)
From the bottom to the top began
We go hard again, hard again (Hell nah, nah, nah)
[Chorus]
But you got no confidence, lately (Mm, mm, come on)
Really wanna run around and chase me (Mm, mm, oh, oh)
I'm not no Travis, baby, not no Chase B
I work too hard, can you f**kin' pay me? (Hell nah)
But you got no confidence, lately (Mm, mm)
Really wanna run around and chase me (Mm, mm, oh, oh)
I'm not no Travis, baby, not no Chase B (Oh, oh)
I work too hard, can you f**kin' pay me?

[Outro]
Right now, right now (The devil is a lie)
Right now, right now (I wanna be alive)
Right now, right now (Can we survive?)
Right now, right now (Can we survive?)
Right now, right now (The devil is a lie)
Right now, right now (I wanna be alive)
Right now, right now (Can we survive?)
Right now, right now (Can we survive?)
