lyrics

Delilah:

Delilah lives in tragedy
Walking down sidewalks of fear
Tries to count the laughter
She just falls back to tears
She just falls back to tears

Delilah loves to play the victim
She knows that role all too well.
She’s just the victim of her own mind
She’s the only one that can tell.
She’s the only one that can tell.

We used to dance
All through the night
And she sung along,
While we swayed
And though I never
Could learn the moves
She never looked away.

Delilah raised herself on ramen,
Cigarettes, and grief.
Her childhood friends were a razorblade,
And an old Bob Dylan LP.
An old Bob Dylan LP

Chorus

And though she never talked that much
She always told the truth
Between the space between our eyes
But there was nothing we could do.
Nothing we could do.

Chorus
