delilah

 

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window

I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind

she was my woman

as she betrayed me I watched - and went out of my mind

my - my - my - delilah

why - why - why - delilah

I could see that girl was no good for me

but I was lost like a slave that no one could free

 

at break of day when that man drove away I was waiting

I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door

she stood there laughing

I felt the knife in my hand - and she laughed no more

 

my - my - my - delilah

why - why - why - delilah

 

like before they came to break down the door

forgive me - delilah - I just couldn't take any more

 

she stood there laughing

I felt the knife in my hand - and she laughed no more

 

my - my - my - delilah

why - why - why - delilah

 

like before they came to break down the door

forgive me - delilah - I just couldn't take any more

forgive me - delilah - I just couldn't take any more
