about

I Am Her (The Devil Is Desire) is about tearing down this ludicrous notion that because the 'devil' represents all these so-called sins - lust, pride, greed, wrath etc - she is bad. She is not, far from it. We have all been in her shoes: Wrapped up in our envy, binging through our gluttony, sleeping over our alarms, stealing that little 'meaningless' something from that shop when we were kids, reeling in our rage and peacocking in our pride. And lest we forget that desire to be looked at with lust in the eyes and passion in the stomach. Society needs to stop demonising these parts of us which make us human and become a little more devilish. I am her. You are her. We are all her.

Oh yeah, and the Devil is a woman - you can quote me on that 😈

lyrics

I AM HER (THE DEVIL IS DESIRE)

Intro-
Place the devil,
Place the devil in me.

Verse 1-
Darling you know that,
I have secret I like to keep.
Darling your blinded,
I’m not as innocent as you think.

Chorus-
If the devil is desire, I am her.
If the devil breeds disaster, I am her each way you turn.
If the devil destroys, everything you see.
If the devil is desire, place the devil in me.

Interlude-
Place the devil,
Place the devil in me.

Verse 2-
Darling, I hear you (I hear you)
Oh, screaming behind the glass (ah-ahh-ah-ahh-ahhh)
But darling, I need you (I need you)
To do anything I ask (ah-ahh-ah-ahh-ahhh)

Chorus-
If the devil is desire, I am her.
If the devil breeds disaster, I am her each way you turn.
If the devil destroys, leaves only lust, pride and greed.
If the devil is desire, place the devil in me.

Bridge-
Maybe,
Maybe I will drown.
Maybe she will come for me,
But I’ll have already succumb.

Chorus-
If the devil is desire, I am her.
If the devil breeds disaster, I am her each way you turn.
If the devil destroys, everything you see.
If the devil is desire, place the devil in me.
