Shake It Out
by Glee Cast



Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

Every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues drawn
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, you're such a mournful sound
Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues drawn
But it's always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
And it's hard to dance with the devil on your back
So shake him off, oh

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 drawn
It's always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
And it's hard to dance with the devil on your back
So shake him off, oh

And it's hard to dance with the devil on your back
And given half a chance, would I take any of it back
It's a fine romance, but it's left me so undone
It's always darkest before the dawn

And I'm damned if I do, and I'm damned if I don't
So here's the drinks in the dark at the end of my row
And I'm ready to suffer, and I'm ready to hope
It's a shot in the dark and right at my throat

Looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Looking for heaven, found the devil in me
But what the hell, I'm going to let it happen to me

Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
And it's hard to dance with the devil on your back
So shake him off, oh
Shake it off

Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
And it's hard to dance with the devil on your back
So shake him off, oh

Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh
And it's hard to dance with the devil on your back
So shake him off, oh
