Song Lyrics of Demons by Imagine Dragons


When the days are cold

And the cards all fold

And the saints we see

Are all made of gold

 

When your dreams all fail

And the ones we hail

Are the worst of all

And the blood's run stale

 

I wanna hide the truth

I wanna shelter you

But with the beast inside

There's nowhere we can hide

 

No matter what we breed

We still are made of greed

This is my kingdom come

This is my kingdom come

 

When you feel my heat

Look into my eyes

It's where my demons hide

It's where my demons hide

Don't get too close

It's dark inside

It's where my demons hide

It's where my demons hide

 

At the curtain's call

It's the last of all

When the lights fade out

All the sinners crawl

 

So they dug your grave

And the masquerade

Will come calling out

At the mess you've made

 

Don't wanna let you down

But I am hell-bound

Though this is all for you

Don't wanna hide the truth

 

No matter what we breed

We still are made of greed

This is my kingdom come

This is my kingdom come

 

When you feel my heat

Look into my eyes

It's where my demons hide

It's where my demons hide

Don't get too close

It's dark inside

It's where my demons hide

It's where my demons hide

 

They say it's what you make

I say it's up to fate

It's woven in my soul

I need to let you go

 

Your eyes, they shine so bright

I wanna save that light

I can't escape this now

Unless you show me how

 

When you feel my heat

Look into my eyes

It's where my demons hide

It's where my demons hide

Don't get too close

It's dark inside

It's where my demons hide

It's where my demons hide
