Story

Delirious has given us a real taste of potential, to date winning a USA based international competition run by legendary producer, David Kershenbaum and also being a finalist in the Brit Writers' Awards.

 

We're both blessed and humbled by this recognition—it's hard to believe sometimes—but we're thrilled to have come up with something that seems to have struck a chord in others for some reason.

 

Inspired by facebook chat, we've always referred to this song our 'angry chick' song. It started with a few words; then some guitar and just throwing ideas around as they sprouted. Funnily enough, most of our discussion was about the word 'dice' and taking poetic licence to use the made up word 'dices' instead (even though the former's the correct plural) just because it felt right.

Lyrics

V1

He’s not ready; I am waiting

For a sign

A sign that says he’s mine

V2

Here’s the problem; no, I’m not stupid

I know the things you said you meant

But I know you’re not so innocent

CH

Delirious, so tell me that you’re serious about me

Can’t live without me 

I’m trying to let the dices roll

But don’t need no double just to know, the game is won

It’s gone way beyond just fun,

Delirious, delirious, delirious oh, oh

V3 

If she’s your fall girl, I’m not waiting

I know you’ve heard a thousand times, so

Stick it where the sun don’t - you’re making me

CH

Delirious, so tell me that you’re serious about me

Can’t live without me 

I’m trying to let the dices roll

But don’t need no double just to know, the game is won

It’s gone way beyond just fun,

Delirious, delirious, delirious oh, oh

Bridge

Don’t pretend that you can’t see 

The girl that’s here inside of me

Who sees the man inside of you

You’re making me, you’re making me

Don’t pretend that you can’t see

The girl that’s here inside of me

Who sees the man inside of you

You’re making me, stop making me (delirious)

CH/OUTRO

Don’t need no double just to know, the game is won

It’s gone way beyond just fun,

Delirious, delirious, delirious

Delirious, so tell me that you’re serious about me

Can’t live without me 

I’m trying to let the dices roll (I’m sick of trying)

Delirious, D-d-delirious
