Hey there Delilah, what's it like in NY city? I'm a thousand miles away, but girl, tonight you look so pretty... yes, you do. Time Square can't shine as bright as you. I swear it's true.Hey there Delilah, don't you worry about the distance. I'm right there. If you get lonely, give this song another listen, close your eyes... listen to my voice, it's my disguise. I'm by your side.
Hey there Delilah, I know times are getting hard, but just believe me girl, someday I'll pay the bills with this guitar. We'll have it good. We'll have the life we knew we would, my world is good.
A thousand miles seems pretty far, but they've got planes and trains and cars. I'd walk to you if I had no other way.
Our friends would all make fun of us and we'll just laugh along because we know that none of them have felt this way.
Delilah I can promise you that by the time that we get through the world will never ever be the same and you're to blame.
