Plain White T's

So, there’s a new band on the radio, called Plain White T’s. They’re nothing “new”. They’re not really all that “innovative”. Some might even argue that they aren’t “special”. But you know what they are? Is Good.

The song that’s playing right now is “Hey There Delilah” and I hear it about once a day. It’s a great song, I’ve heard it half a dozen times and I know all the words. It’s just a simple, sweet lullaby, and I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.

Being a band in today’s society, you can definitely check out their Myspace page. They do have videos, music, bios, etc. on there, so check it out. They don’t have a channel on Youtube (yet?), but there are fan-uploaded videos on there.

Here are the lyrics to Hey There Delilah if you’re interested:

Hey there Delilah
What’s it like in New York City?
I’m a thousand miles away
But girl tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Time Square can’t shine as bright as you
I swear it’s true

Hey there Delilah
Don’t you worry about the distance
I’m right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice it’s my disguise
I’m by your side

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me girl
Someday I’ll pay the bills with this guitar
We’ll have it good
We’ll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I’ve got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I’d write it all
Even more in love with me you’d fall
We’d have it all

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we’ll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you’re to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don’t you miss me
Two more years and you’ll be done with school
And I’ll be making history like I do
You know it’s all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here’s to you
This ones for you

Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
Oh it’s what you do to me
What you do to me.

Ps. I’m aware that I’ll totally be SICK of this song by the time the summer is over. I also kind of wonder if this will bring an influx of the name Delilah in babies born this summer. I should check into that come winter.

The wedding rings should be as personal as the wedding speeches. There are wedding planners who offer to prepare best man speeches, but that just takes the whole point away
