Love Shines On Broadway

And Keeps Shining On.


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


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

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I 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 that 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 one’s 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


If there’s a sweeter wedding than Mr. and Mrs. Bignall’s at the beautiful Hotel Vintage Plaza, this baby boomer hasn’t seen it.

Two continents, six years, and one married couple later, hope and faith grew a new branch in Portland.

For young and old wondering ‘Where is the love’, listen to the Plain White T’s sing their song and review the images above.

Believe in the goodness of the human heart and you will find it.

A roomful of boomers felt the truth Saturday night when the baby girl they knew found the love of her life right beside her.
