Lyrics
Demons will invade your Soul
Now and then from time to time
Oh won't they baby

Rush you like a pack of wolves
Touch you when you least expect it
Make you crazy

But you've been here before, oh yeah
You've been here before, that's why

You know they're lying, you know they're crying
You know they're dying
They say, "Let Me In!"

You know they want you, you know they taunt you
You know they haunt you
Every chance they get

They wanna, Make you cold
They wanna, Make you fold
They wanna, Take your Soul
They'll rob you of it night and day

I can't sleep at night without you any more
I can't sleep at night without you
I can't sleep at night
Without you

Lightning lives within my blood
Frightening as this sounds my love
Don't be scared
Tonight I'm gonna take you in
Commit another mortal sin
But I don't care

Because
We've been here before, oh yeah
We've been here before, that's why

I know you're lying, I know you're crying
I know you're dying to
Let me in

I know you want me, I know you taunt me
I know you haunt me every chance you get
We've got to
Live this Dream, We've got to
Fill this need, I want you
All over me
Rock me like I know you can!

Because
I can't sleep at night without you any more
I can't sleep at night without you
I can't sleep at night
Without you

And I know these days are long
I know this wind is cold
But, I need to hold you one more time
Before we both grow old

An for this I'll be a sinner
For this I just don't care
Desire just to touch you
Run my fingers through your hair
I can't sleep at night without you any more
I can't sleep at night without you
I can't sleep at night
Without you
