Devil Wouldn't Recognise You

Lyrics Print lyrics

It's quiet as it is tonight

You almost think you were safe

Your eyes are full of surprises

They cannot predict my fate

Waiting underneath the stars

There's something you should know

The angels they surround my heart

Telling me to let you go

 

I barely couldn't

I barely couldn't recognize

But I played right into it

Who am I to criticize

Somehow I'll get through it

And you won't even realize

Falling through your own disguise

 

It's like over and over

You're pushing me right down to the floor

I should just walk away

Over and over I keep on coming back for more

I play into your fantasy

Now that it's over

You can lie to me right through your smile

I see behind your eyes

Now I'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind

 

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

I do, I do

 

You almost fooled yourself this time

Let all the saints be praised

You hide your sadness behind your smile

And you keep your lost heart braced

The steps that edge along the ledge

Is much higher than it seems

But I've been on that ledge before

You can't hide yourself from me

 

I barely couldn't

I barely couldn't recognize

I still played right into it

Who am I to criticize

Somehow I'll get through it

And you won't even realize

Falling through your own disguise

 

It's like over and over

You're pushing me right down to the floor

I should just walk away

Over and over I keep on coming back for more

I play into your fantasy

Now that it's over

You can lie to me right through your smile

I see behind your eyes

Now I'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind

 

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do

I do, I do

 

It's like over and over

You're pushing me right down to the floor

I should just walk away

Over and over I keep on coming back for more

I play into your fantasy

Now that it's over

You can lie to me right through your smile

I see behind your eyes

Now I'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind

 

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, you, you, you

Devil wouldn't recognize you, you, you, you

Devil wouldn't recognize you, you, you

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you

I do, I, I do

 

You, you, you, you, devil wouldn't recognize you

Recognize you, you, you

I do

 

Even the devil wouldn't recognize you

 

I, I, I, I, I, I do

 Hard Candy

Song

This track was written for the Hello Suckers! musical with Joe Henry and was rehearsed for the Re-Invention Tour in the form of a bluesy torch song. For the Hard Candy album, it was reworked by Timbaland, Justin & Danja. Madonna named this song as one of her favourites from the album, because "I just love [the song] lyrically. I like the subject matter. The idea that you're so clever even the Devil wouldn't recognize you. You know what I mean?"

Tour

Devil Wouldn't Recognize You @ Sticky & Sweet TourWith the soft and gentle piano keys that introduce Devil at the Sticky & Sweet Tour, one wouldn't expect such a dark and sinister, yet sublime performance. As a devilish queen, dressed in a black cape, Madonna emerges on top of a piano hidden behind the circular screen, With visual flashes of water falling down, it seems she is soaking in the rain. While Ric'key keeps on playing, Madonna slowly rises up on the spinning stage. The screens then move up and take the rain with them, and Madonna overcomes her sorrow and bursts out of her darkness, revealing her colourful self, symbolizing the metamorphosis of the caterpillar to a butterfly.
