In the Bible Delillah was mentioned only to say that she seduced and betrayed Samson . She was the " bad guy" of the story.
But in this song Regina Spektor takes the point of view of Delilah and she says Delilah really loved Samson.
In the bible , Samson and Delilah were lovers before the enemies of Samson asked Delilah to find the source of Samson's strength in order to defeat him. It's because Samson was powerful and a threat to his enemies that they wanted to kill him.
I like to think that in the song , Delilah , after Samson's death likes to imagine what would have happened if she had took Samson's strength away before he became dangerous enough to be killed .
She says" And he told me that I'd done alright
And kissed me till the mornin' light, the mornin' light"
He would have forgive her and
"Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonder bread, and went right back to bed"
Samson would have led a normal life with delilah , he wouldn't have been a super human
"Oh, we couldn't bring the columns down
Yeah, we couldn't destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the Bible didn't mention us, not even once"
She said if she had cut his hair before all this story , their love story would have been like any other one , they wouldn't had been able to destroy the columns down and their happy love story would not have been worth mentioning by the bible because there would have been no prowess , no drama.
I like this version than the radio one, this is so raw. i love this song for a thousand reasons.
U r my sweetest downfall!!
I loved you first i loved you first!!
does she write her own song?
Never gets old. I love this song, no matter how much i over play it.
her voice is really good
