Slash – Withered Delilah lyrics

You are the clown for what you are
You had to break out every trick you could pull
But there comes a time where everything must turn off

Back to the start again
Back to the place where you come from

Stuck out of view
My withered Delilah
You know it's true that no one cares anymore
Stuck out of view
You had your time
But now your moment is all but gone

Oh, it's gone

Lost in a daze
What have you done?
Diggin' a grave to be your own
You're soon to fade
But just too blind to let go of what you had
And what you were
Irrelevance hurts but you're not alone


So pack your diamond rings
All your pretty things
And just move along
'cause there's always somebody else to replace you
When you are gone
(When you are gone, hey yeah)



The moment is all but gone
The moment is all but gone
Oh, it's gone
