    People Are Creating Their Own Version Of "Hey There Delilah" From Delilah's Point Of View And It's A Little Emotional

    "Hey it's Delilah don't you worry about the city. I play your music, close my eyes, and it's like you're right here with me."

    We all remember the smash hit "Hey There Delilah" by the Plain White T's. You know, the one with the iconic opening that goes, "Hey there Deliah, what's it like in New York City?" A BOP.

    Well, the very talented TikTok user @kallistarowan started a trend where she rewrote the song from Delilah's point of view, and people loved it. This mega-viral video alone has more than 8 million views.
