EVIL is song by emo-pop artist AViVA that was released as a single on July 17th, 2020.

Background[]

A snippet of this song was released in the VOLUME II trailer on June 3rd, 2020. The first trailer was released a month later on July 2nd. The second trailer was released on July 9th. EVIL premiered and released on July 17th, 2020.

Theme[]

The song is a ‘heat of the moment’ song. That feeling when someone has screwed you over in some way and you’re so angry you feel like nothing is off the cards. That’s happened to everybody. I think the biggest lesson is that time heals all wounds and the things that mattered so much then, pass and don’t matter anymore. My favourite lyric is ‘won’t save you know cause we’re not friends’ for two reasons. 1- because I think it’s hilarious how often people cut you out of their life until they need something, then all of a sudden the pop back up. 2- it’s ironically incorrect for both me AViVA and the character in my book, Teddy. We always end up saving people regardless of what they’ve done to us.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
I'm sorry
Somebody hurt ya when you were younger
But why'd you take it out on me?
Now you're over soon, you'll see
I forgive ya
It's not your fault you're so frickin' evil
Spreading lies about you and me
Tore it down, made it seem easy

[Pre-Chorus]
What's the way to Heaven?
Now you've found a way to sell it
You thought I'd lay down and die
But it's my turn now to start the fires

[Chorus]
You're E-V-I-L
You'll burn this place to Hell
But it don't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends
E-V-I-L, they're all under your spell
But it won't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends

[Post-Chorus]
E-V, E-V-I-L
E-V, E-V-I-L
But it don't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends

[Verse 2]
Your problems, not my problems, you're forgetting
Cannot change who you are inside
You let it out, let your dark run wild
I know it wasn't my fault
I can't believe though
That you think you have escaped me
I'll hunt you down, just you wait and see

[Pre-Chorus]
What's the way to Heaven?
Now you've found a way to sell it
You thought I'd lay down and die
But it's my turn now to start the fires

[Chorus]
You're E-V-I-L
You'll burn this place to Hell
But it don't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends
E-V-I-L, they're all under your spell
But it won't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends

[Post-Chorus]
E-V, E-V-I-L
E-V, E-V-I-L
But it don't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends

[Bridge]
E-V, E-V-I-L
E-V, E-V-I-L
E-V, E-V-I-L
E-V-I-L, evil

[Chorus]
You're E-V-I-L
You'll burn this place to Hell
But it don't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends
E-V-I-L, they're all under your spell
But it won't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends

[Post-Chorus]
E-V, E-V-I-L
E-V, E-V-I-L
But it don't matter when you're dead
Won't save you now 'cause we're not friends

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
I know you thought you broke my heart
Left me lone in the dark
Shattered pieces make me sharp
But you told me that I was the one
I was like the shining sun
'Til it was a hit and run
Oh, I know you could never understand
Why I needed you to be my man

[Chorus]
E-V-I-L
Drag my heart through hell
Did you think I'd never tell
That your heart is evil?
E-V-I-L
Drag my heart through hell
Did you think I'd never tell
That your heart is evil?

[Verse 2]
I didn't want to make a plan
They won't say I ever ran
Now I have the upper hand
'Cause I didn't think that you would ever be so cruel
Didn't want to bend the rules
But I'm done with your abuse
I know you can never understand
Why I couldn't let you walk again

[Chorus]
E-V-I-L
Drag my heart through hell
Did you think I'd never tell
That your heart is evil?
E-V-I-L
Drag my heart through hell
Did you think I'd never tell
That your heart is evil?

[Outro]
That your heart is evil?
That your heart is
