Soul Seller

He opened the door and he walked down the road,
threatening to never return.
I locked up the door and I shut myself in,
hoping he’ll reach hell and burn.

But he turned right back and he started to walk,
making his way to my door.
Panic set in as I wanted to hide,
I fell down and crawled on the floor.

Soul seller…
He thought, I was, his fella…
Soul seller…
He thought, I was, his fella…

He knocked on my door and he asked me to open,
asked me to not fear his voice.
I tried to pretend as though I couldn’t hear,
but it seemed like I had no choice.

He said that I’ll huff; he said that I’ll puff.
And bring down your house like a deck.
He did as he said and he brought down my house.
And reached out and he grabbed my neck.

Soul seller…
He thought, I was, his fella…
Soul seller…
He thought, I was, his fella…
