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

Mercedes with Tina:
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:
So I like to keep my issues drawn
But it's always darkest before the dawn

Mercedes with Tina:
Shake it out, shake it out

Mercedes with Santana and Tina:
Shake it out, shake it out, oh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh whoa

And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

Tina with Mercedes:
And I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart

Santana with Mercedes:
Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
It's always darkest (Mercedes: before the dawn) (Santana: before the dawn)

Mercedes with Tina:
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh whoa

Mercedes with Santana and Tina:
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh 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

Santana and Tina with Mercedes:
It's always darkest before the dawn

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Santana:
And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't
(with Tina: So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my rope)
And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope
(with Mercedes: It's a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat, cause)

Mercedes:
Looking for heaven

Mercedes with Santana:
Found the devil in me
Looking for heaven

Mercedes:
Found the devil in me
But what the hell

Mercedes with Santana and Tina:
I'm gonna let it happen to me, yeah

Santana with Tina (Mercedes):
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh whoa (Ooah, oh)
Shake it out, shake it out
Shake it out, shake it out, oh woah (Shake it out)

And it's hard to dance (When it's hard to dance)
With a devil on your back
(with Mercedes: So shake him off) oh whoa

(Ouh, shake it off)

Shake it out, shake it out (Yeah)
Shake it out, shake it out, oh woah (Shake it out)
Shake it out, shake it out (Shake it out)
Shake it out, shake it out, oh whoa (Eeey)

And it's (with Mercedes: hard to dance) with a devil on your back
(with Mercedes: So shake him off) oh woah

(Oh-oh, ooh-whoa, oh-oh)

Shake it out, shake it out (Shake it out)
Shake it out, shake it out, oh woah (Shake it out)
Shake it out, shake it out (Ey, yeah)
Shake it out, shake it out, oh woah (Ey-eh-eh-ey)

Santana with Mercedes and Tina:
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off

Santana with Tina (Mercedes):
Oh whoa (Oh, ooh, ooh, woah)

Trivia

  • This is the second time Tina and Mercedes have sung in a Florence + the Machine song, the first was Dog Days Are Over in Special Education.
  • Brittany and Sugar are included in the scene; however, they do not participate in the performance.
  • This is the second song that a part of New Directions sing to Beiste while she's in tears, the first being Stop! In the Name of Love/Free Your Mind. Curiously, that time it was the New Directions boys who sang it, and this time it is the girls. When Rachel and Blaine sing Tonight (Season Three), Beiste is also shown in tears. However, the song's not specifically directed towards her.

Errors

  • Brittany and Sugar mouth many different parts of the song but are not actually heard singing at any point in the song.
  • At the end, when Mercedes is doing runs, her mouth is moving off time.
