Out" Ringtone to your Cell
"Shake It Out"
[Santana:]
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
[Tina:]
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
[Mercedes:]
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
[Tina and Mercedes:]
I'm always dragging that horse around
Our love is pastured such a mournful sound
[Mercedes:]
Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground
[Santana:]
Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
It's always darkest before the dawn
[Tina, Mercedes, and Santana:]
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa
[Tina and Mercedes:]
And I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart
[Tina, Santana, and Mercedes:]
'Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
It's always darkest before
[Santana:]
the dawn
[Tina and Mercedes:]
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
[Tina, Santana, and Mercedes:]
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa
[Santana:]
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
[Mercedes:]
And given half the chance would I take any of it back
[Tina:]
It's a fine romance but it's left me so undone
[Tina, Santana, and Mercedes:]
It's always darkest before the dawn
[Tina, Santana, Mercedes:]
Ooh hoo oooh hoo...
[Santana:]
And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't
[Tina and Santana:]
So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my rope
[Santana:]
And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope
[Tina, Santana, and Mercedes:]
It's a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat, cause
[Mercedes:]
Looking for heaven,
[Tina, Mercedes, and Santana:]
found the devil in me
Looking for heaven,
[Mercedes:]
found the devil in me
But what the hell
[Tina, Mercedes, and Santana:]
I'm gonna let it happen to me
[Tina and Santana: (With Mercedes belting):]
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa
