Lady Delilah - she enslaves me
I'm bound and chained by her lies
One look in her eyes and she breaks me
And I fall down like rain
As the wind sings her name

Oh, Delilah…
I was the strongest man alive
'Till you came along - my Delilah

She deceived me but believe me it was alright
To touch her lips was to kiss the blades of her knives
Why do things we know are wrong feel so right?
Worth a lifetime of pain
For one night to sing her name

Oh, Delilah…
I was the strongest man alive
'Till you came along - my Delilah

Well I'll never be the same
'Cause that girl - yeah, she's to blame
How could I love again
Since she took my heart away.

And then someone said her name
And I tore at my flesh to dull the pain of the sound
And ripped from the chains and the walls came down
And I lay covered and bound

And I called out her name…

I was the strongest man alive
'Till you came along - my Delilah

    General Comment"A song about being powerless against addiction. Delilah represents sex, drugs, pain, money, whatever your weakness is - we all got one somewhere..."
