I don't think its about a pedophile; I don't know what the author intended. English is not my first language, I like this song. I cannot help bet laugh at the people who find that it 'reminds them of so-and-so'. Although I disagree about the song "sucking", he is correct in that NEITHER THE PLAIN WHITE T'S NOR ANYONE IN THAT BAND wrote the song "Hey There Delilah". It says the release date is 2005 but I hear all over the radio now on all the top 40 stations everywhere I have been in the country the last 3 months(Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma). I met a boy I fell in love with from a different continent but he didnt want to keep it going long-distance as he wanted us both to live our lives free.
I still dream of meeting him someday, but until then, all I have is the memory of him and this song. But it's the kind that makes me lay on my bed and think about that person I wish was with me.
At my camp it is the perfect slow dance song, minus the fact that everyone is so tired of hearing answer to what someone responded with the last time i posted which was ages and ages ago, it says the release date is 2005 but all last summer i heard it like every 2 hours like radio stations do with new songs so i am confused as to how a 2-year-old song gets airplay as if it is a fresh new one..it really released that long ago and just now caught on last year? there is another song this site that was the same way, played every 2 hours or so but was supposedly released in 05. Notice that this is a one way conversation, from the guy left behind, to the girl "a thousand miles away".
You have no idea what the girl is thinking, or doing from the song...
This song really breaks my heart because my attempt at a long distance relationship ended in February.
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.
