At the stroke of midnight on Friday, Demi Lovato released "Dancing with the Devil," the second single from her album of the same name. The haunting ballad chronicles Demi's descent into addiction, which began innocently with "a little red wine" that she wanted "every night."

"I told you I was okay, but I was lying," Demi confesses to her fans in the pre-chorus.

"I was Dancing with the Devil, out of control / Almost made it to heaven, it was closer than you'll know / Playing with the enemy, gambling with my soul / It's so hard to say no when you're Dancing with the Devil," Lovato sings in the chorus.

The second verse describes her introduction to drugs: "a little white line" that eventually became "a little black pipe."

"A painful remedy/ Almost go the best of me/ I keep praying I don't reach the end of my life," she sings. Lovato then begs her fans to forgive her for Dancing with the Devil. "It feels absolutely unreal having this out right now, I love you all so so much," she shared on Instagram shortly after.

"Thank you for your support and love this week with the premiere," she continued, referring to her docuseries -- also titled Dancing with the Devil -- streaming now on YouTube.
