my name is delilah, and once i loved a man
with all my lonely heart.
and he was mine, oh he was mine;
though he was promised to another, he gave his heart to me.
but all could not be well, for
everyone around me told me it was wrong,
and wrong, and wrong. they whispered in my ear
of his flaws, his evil deeds,
the place from which he came.
my family, my friends - how could i
abandon them, just for a love that was
never fair in the first place?
so i hardened my heart to the one who held it,
and i threw my samson to the wolves.
and my name is delilah, and once i loved a man,
once i loved a man.
