A thousand miles seems pretty far

Sometimes you have to say stuff to avoid certain things and agree to things that you have no intention of following. Unfortunately sometimes they catch up on you and you’re left in a lurch wondering how to get out of it. I think my bag of tricks is running out of tricks.

Oh well I still have a few more tricks.

I have been swamped with work and my activities. I’ve been walking around (taking photos) Brickfields, Abdullah Hukum, Dataran Merdeka, CM, catching the merdeka rehearsal, partying with FLickr international (which was a blast by the way), taking the kids out, temples and been going out so much I have had no time to update over here.

If you’re having a bad day go try this link out – believe me it works at least for a while! ;p Just close your eyes and imagine that person whose been giving u the bad day ;p Oh yeah.

Simon had blogged about this song and I have been wanting to blog about it forever. Its such a beautiful love song, the kind I have been looking for. Simple lyrics, simple music and yet so heart wrenching.

Here’s the lyrics and the video – have fun listening.



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
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 ones 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
What you do to me.
