DeLila Black delivers as usual wit her new track, “Accountability”. The UK based country songstress,  is releasing her second lock-down single on May 14, 2021 with the support of a Color Me Country Grant.

 

“I usually do a theme, love and something else,” says DeLila. This track is no different, serving up a tougher side of love in the form of “Accountability.”

 

Accountability – DeLila Black

Have you no shame?
You know you should when you recall all the things you say.
When you recall all the things you do who gets the blame.
It’s always the same.

Have you no shame?
I know you do when thinking of all the measures that you took
To be absolved, who is at fault? Everyone but you. It’s never you.

You blame your mom, your dad, the childhood you never had,
your friends, your fears, your thoughts.
It’s all the heart break to blame. Everyone but you. It’s never you.

What do you think about, what do you figure out
as you wonder how this came to be?
Do you ponder when you wonder before you fall gently to sleep?
And in the night do you awake
because your mind is all a flutter with all these things?
Does accountability come one day to everyone but you?

You blame your mom, your dad, the childhood you never had
your friends, your education.
You blame your job, your home, your kids, your wife,
the law, the church, your god, your life,
the way you feel today, the love that let you slip away,
your fears. Your validation:
It’s all the heart break to blame.
Everyone but you. It’s never you.

Keep up with DeLila Black and be sure not to miss the official release of “Accountability” on May 14, 2021 on her Bandcamp.
