uhh someone call "to catch a predator" lol I Am in long distant relationship...though most of the time.is just a thrilling experience.has its dose of ups and downs.major cause is the distance.cant be the rest of the world.cant do what the others similarly in love might do..just painful and frustrating at times.. .day i received a mail from him"plz.download the song called "hey there delilah"..plain white t's..belive me gall.will be shocked.."i was realy taken aback.i followed his orders.i was spell bound..!!!!!!!!!!!!even though my parents sat beside me as i played the song...i never paid attention to what they said (of course they dont know abt him...)IT was as if the song was made perfectly for just the two of us...(now i am not sure about that after reading the comments..hehe)It was a perfect dedication...May not be a thousand miles but it sure is going to feel like it.:( I love him so much and just hope things work out between us.I don't know who wrote "Hey There Delilah", but even if Plain White Tees didn't write it, they still managed to make it beautiful. Just out of curiosty though, does anyone else think that it is kind of a rip of Good ridance by Green Day. When this song came out My husband was on his way to Iraq and we listened to it everyday, I listened to this song almost Everyday and it made me Cry but it also made me look forward to him coming home for good!! was the ringtone my 13 year old sister had when her bestfriend called her. He killed her mom,too.....I really could care less who wrote it,the Plain White T's made the best of this song. I'm not trying to argue with anyone,its just how I personaly feel and everyone should respect that. This is a common misconception, due largely to the fact that Tom is claiming he wrote it.
We dated for 2 years, and although sometimes times were hard, overall it was some of the best times of my life. This song became mine and now my ex's song when we started dating.
for all we know the guy is home longing for the girl and the girl is out living up the life in New York City.
Plus, it seems apparent to me that they'll never work out in the end.
and once he wrote the song about her, Delilah went to see it performed while her boyfriend waited out in the car! Have you noticed how radio stations play decent music over and over until you are just sick of it?
Either way, this is a a sweet song, even if it is an imaginary relationship. Most everybody thinks this is a sweet song, and maybe that's the intention, but this is the way I see it...
