[COPYRIGHTED!]

Oh, I really love it when Kurt sang this…. I always imagine that he sang this for me :p His piano playing is… breath-taking xD Check out the lyrics, it’s touching…

Hey there, Delilah
What’s it like in New York City?
I’m a thousand miles away
But girl, tonight you look so pretty
Yes, you do
Times Square can’t shine as bright as you
I swear, it’s true

Hey there, Delilah
Don’t you worry about the distance
I’m right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice, it’s my disguise
I’m by your side

CHORUS
Oh, it’s what you do to me
Oh, it’s what you do to me
Oh, it’s what you do to me
Oh, it’s what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there, Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me, girl
Someday, I’ll pay the bills with this guitar
We’ll have it good
We’ll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there, Delilah
I’ve got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I’d write it all
Even more in love with me, you’d fall
We’d have it all

Oh, it’s what you do to me
Oh, it’s what you do to me
Oh, it’s what you do to me
Oh, it’s what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
And we’ll just laugh along
Because we know that none of them have felt this way
Delilah, I can promise you that by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you’re to blame

Hey there, Delilah
You be good and don’t you miss me
Two more years and you’ll be done with school
And I’ll be making history, like I do
You’ll know it’s all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there, Delilah
Here’s to you
This one’s for you

Back to CHORUS…

The lyrics are telling us about…. a guy who sings for his girl who is separated from him by the distance… Another LDR couple, lovely!😄
