Plain White T's - Hey There Delilah

Hey there Delilah what's it like in New York City
I'm a thousand _1_ away
But girl tonight you look so _2_ 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 _3_
I'm right there if you get _4_ give this song another listen
Close your eyes, listen to my voice it's my _5_
I'm by your side
