Song of the Week: “If I Were” by Andy Gullahorn

Andy Gullahorn is hard at work in the studio putting the finishing touches on his new record. Wondering what the album is going to be like? So are we. But we have no doubt that it’s going to be awesome. We hope to have a sneak peak soon. In the meantime, here’s an old favorite.

If I were the devil I wouldn’t wear red
I wouldn’t have horns or a pitchfork
I wouldn’t breathe fire cause it might give me away
But if I were the devil you’d never know
I’d befriend you quick and corrupt you slow
So you don’t notice until its far too late
If I were the devil
If I were the devil

If I were the devil I’d spend all day
Lowering standards of what’s okay
To think to say to watch on your tv
I’d break down the value of promises kept
And fade out truth till there’s nothing left
Except gossip and lies popping up as thick as weeds
If I were the devil
If I were the devil.

I might not be as foreign as you think
‘Cause I wouldn’t always show my evil side
I’ve got the time and patience just to wait
And steal your soul just one sin at a time
Like I would
If I were. . .

No I’m not the devil but if I was
I’d take God’s people and split them up
To keep their minds off who they’re called to be
So they’re no longer fighting over living or dead
It’s “Is it the body or just bread?”
While all the unfed die hungry on the street
If I were the devil
If I were the devil

I’d make moms and dads who never stick around
Pain so bad you have to drink to drown
And guilt so I can kick you when you’re down
And I would
If I were. . .

If I were the devil I wouldn’t wear red
I wouldn’t breathe fire cause it might give me away
