A A thousand miles seems pretty far, But they've got planes and trains and cars,
D D Bm Bm
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
G G A A
Our friends would all make fun of us, And we'll just laugh along because,
D D Bm Bm
We know that none of them have felt this way,

Delilah I can promise you, That by the time that we get through,
Bm Bm A A
The world will never ever be the same, And you're to blame.
