Can’t call Delilah no more, her love has walked out the door
And though I’m not the man that she’s with
I only wish her the best

And though I’m not the man that she’s with

It’s not the best thing for me to stay here when you do me wrong
But I can’t help but see you the way I pictured you in my dreams

And I know I should move on, but it’s so hard to run
And I’m dying, slowly dying chasing after you

Chorus
Can’t call Delilah no more, her love has walked out the door
And though I’m not the man that she’s with
I only wish her the best
Ahh …..

Trusting the morning will bring sunshine again
And I know one day we gonna fly away oh but Lord please don’t take her now oh I pray
