"Delayed Devotion" as written by James Dearness Hogarth, Aimee Ann Duffy and Francis Eg White....
It seems you wanna give me
Oh, a life time of security
Down on your dying knees
I watch you, babe, I watch you plead

But your words come much too late
My love for you has turned to hate
Cause you've taken too much time
To show me that you're mine

When I drop you boy
You'll need another toy
One that won't stand up for herself
When I knock you down
You'll need another town
Where somebody's gonna talk to you
You just let me wait
Now it's too late
For your delayed, delayed devotion

You try to convince me
Oh, about the possibilities
But I know that all your poetry
Just comes from insecurity

Cause your actions speak nothing no more
When it's what I've been waiting for
Cause you've taken too much time
To show me that you're mine

When I drop you boy
You'll need another toy
One that won't stand up for herself
When I knock you down
You'll need another town
Where somebody's gonna talk to you
You just let me wait
Now it's too late
For your delayed, delayed devotion

You played me for a fool for too long
Blinded by your lies I never saw your all
I'm no longer under your spell
Hear it in a song
You can go to Hell

When I drop you boy
You'll need another toy
One that won't stand up for herself
When I knock you down
You'll need another town
Where somebody's gonna talk to you
You just let me wait
Now it's too late
For your delayed, delayed devotion

    General CommentI agree this song is probably the best song on the album. love love love this song. to me this means that who ever she is interested in, obviously took too long to pay attention to her. now hes trying to win her back, maybe by writing poetry and what not. but its too late. actions speak louder then words!

    General Commenti can't believe only two people commented so far .. I love this song so much off the album!

    anyways i think the meanings pretty straight forward .. she liked someone, they didn't really like her back/messed her round and now she's stronger because of it and moved on and they want her.
