DELILAH’S LAMENT

He was a pious man
But he was a brute
Best any man in a fight
Paid for my favors
‘Cause he had to
I was Delilah, woman of the night.

Something ‘bout the man drew me
It wasn’t love, but I pulled him to me
He’d be company while I waited for the real thing
But it got complicated.

I took him as my lover
Afraid to refuse
And a girl gets tired of being alone
But he had enemies
Who wanted to use me
So I knew I was living in a danger zone

But something ‘bout the man drew me
It wasn’t love, but I pulled him to me
He’d be company while I waited for the real thing
But it got complicated.

No one asked me why I did it
‘Cause they all thought they knew
Here’s the reason between you and me
I only took the money ‘cause it meant that I’d be freee

I didn’t believe him
Three times he had lied
When he told me about cutting his hair
It sounded silly
So imagine my surprise
Now it’s to late to decide that I cared.

But something ‘bout the man drew me
I knew it wasn’t love, but I pulled him to me
He’d be company while I waited for the real thing
But it got complicated.
Now I’ve no company and no hope of the real thing.
