Plain White T's - Hey There Delilah

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

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.
Never apart where ever we go
To believe with all your heart is to know
We can do whatever we want too
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 know it's all because of you
We can make all our dreams come true
Hey there Delilah here's to you
This one's for you

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!
Oh it's what you do to me!
What you do to me.
