Demi Lovato's Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over Lyrics as Instagram Captions

Demi Lovato's seventh studio album, Dancing With the Devil… the Art of Starting Over is an epic masterpiece, and we won't stop listening to it anytime soon.

Featuring 19 stellar tracks at Demi's most brutally honest and authentic, it's a peek into her soul like we've never quite seen before. And, as we expected, it's jam-packed with incredible lyrics—some relatable, some poignantly unknowable—that are as biting as they are poetic.

To celebrate the release today, here are some of our favorite lyrics from the album—and when to use them as exquisite Instagram captions.
