Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see the way, I can see the way
And all of the ghouls come out to play
And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong
It's always darkest before the dawn
And I've been a fool and I've been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I'm always dragging that horse around
Our love is past, it's such a mournful sound
Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues strong
But it's always darkest before the dawn
Shake it out, shake it out,
shake it out, shake it out, ooh woah
Shake it out, shake it out,
shake it out, shake it out, ooh woah
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him out, oh woah

And I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart
Cause I like to keep my issues strong
It's always darkest before the dawn
Shake it out, shake it out,
shake it out, shake it out, ooh woah
Shake it out, shake it out,
shake it out, shake it out, ooh woah
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him out, oh woah

And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back (Shake him out)
And given half the chance
would I take any of it back (Shake it out)
It's a final mess but it's left me so empty (Shake it out)
It's always darkest before the dawn
Oh woah, oh woah...

And I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't
So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope
It's a shot in the dark and right at my throat
Cause looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Well what the hell, I'm gonna let it happen to me
Shake it out, shake it out,
shake it out, shake it out, ooh woah
Shake it out, shake it out,
shake it out, shake it out, ooh woah
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him out, oh woah
Shake it out, shake it out,
shake it out, shake it out, ooh woah
Shake it out, shake it out,
shake it out, shake it out, ooh woah
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him out, oh woah
