The Demon Is Gone

THE DEMON IS GONE - Written by Carroll Bryant 



I knew a man 
He had what it took but didn't understand
He had a dream
With sincere in his eyes he said, "You're just like me"

Inspiration came without warning
But precious time did slip away 
It was all just part of a journey 
And reason begot from the words he did say 
And that
The demon is gone 
Don't know where he went 
He just disappeared 
The demon is gone 
I was there just like you are here 
The demon is gone
And the demon to leave is what you must fear

I shook his hand 
I have what it takes but do I understand?
I have a dream
Don't want what he is to happen to me 

Inspiration comes without warning 
But precious time is slipping away 
Is it all just part of the journey?
Will reason begot from the words I can't say
And that
The demon is gone 
Don't know where he went 
He just disappeared 
The demon is gone 
I am here just like he was there 
The demon is gone
And the demon to leave is what I must fear

I know this man 
I was in love with his daughter
He stands alone in his own rain 
I couldn't stand to bear his growing pain 
Looking at him and knowing we were the same 

I don't want what he is to ever happen to me 
I don't want to lose this dream

Inspiration still comes without a warning 
But precious time has slipped away 
It's just all part of the journey 
And reason begot from the words I can't say 
And that
The demon is gone 
Don't know where he went 
He just disappeared 
The demon is gone 
I was there just like you are here 
The demon is gone
And the demon to leave is what you must fear

The demon is gone
The demon is gone 
The demon is gone 

The dream is still alive
