Modern Day Delilah
by Kiss

Album: Sonic Boom (2009)
  • I still remember when I saw your face across the room
    Told me to take you but the price of love would seal my doom

    I know the way you made the others break
    But loving me would be your first mistake

    Slave away, slave away
    Modern day Delilah
    Each time you learn to give
    Queen to slave
    Modern day Delilah

    Listen

    You lived your glory in a liars haze you called the truth
    The same old story of a social plan from wasted youth

    You thought that you could bring me to my knees
    But who's the one who's crying baby please

    Slave away, slave away
    Modern day Delilah
    Each time you learn to give
    Queen to slave
    Modern day Delilah

    Just like the trigger of a loaded gun
    You were the reason for the damage done
    Too many lovers like a hunters prey
    Not today

    I know the way you made the others break
    But loving me would be your last mistake
    Each time you learn to give

    Slave away
    Modern day Delilah
    Shame, shame, shame on you girl
    Queen to slave, come on now
    Modern day Delilah
    Yeah, yeah, each time you learn to give
    Slave away, slave away
    Now you'll pay
    Delilah
    Queen to slave, loves decayed

  • Gary from Springfield, MoSinger Van Stephenson released a song titled "Modern Day Delilah" in 1984. He died of melanoma in 2001.
  • Jason from Aurora, CoJosh it has NOTHING to do with thier rights or them profiting from it. It has to do with the Rock and Roll hall of fame having blinders on to band s such as KISS, RUSH, IRON MAIDEN, JUDAS PRIEST I could go on and on. ABBA and Madonna are in for Pete's sake.
  • Josh from Leroy, NyJason, The reason KISS is not in the hall of fame is because they will not give them their rights!!! i ahve to explain this to all KISS fans!!! Paul and Gene are businessman that won't give up their rights unless they get some profit off of it!! AMAZING SONG!!
  • Jason from Denver, CoThis is a kick ass song. I am very happy with the entire album. The thing that PISSES me off is that KISS is STILL not in the Rock and Roll hall of fame. WAKE THE HELL UP OVER THERE!!!!The 2010 inductees are bands that have done NOTHING in DECADES. Again I say WAKE THE HELL UP!! KISS IS ROCK AND ROLL!! Get a f--kING clue Rock and Roll hall of fame staff!!
