This song is beautiful! One of my favorites! Well done Regina.

I've heard this song is actually is about a boy she loved who had cancer which is why she says "The Bible didn't mention us, not even once" and "Your hair was long when we first met" I think also on a you tube video some one said "Wonder bread" is a cancer drug.

This version of the song is the earlier version...fr o m Songs. The one on "Begin to Hope" is cleaned up and produced with strings.

I like the newer version better. Fortunately Regina can do no wrong.

This version is the one on the old album. The newer one is a bit faster and a lil bit prettier. Her voice has matured over time.

Gorgeous. One of those "what if" type of songs...if Samson and Delilah had their "happily ever after."

I always picture the lyrics as a conversation .
Samson: You are my sweetest downfall.
Delilah: I loved you first.

google the story: samson and delilah,or go to this link is the one i looked at: http://www.f r i e n d s h i p b a p t i s t c h u r c h . c o m / c m a y . h t m l its a bible story. the song took a whole new meaning for me after i read it. As for the wonder bread, I totally agree with ktereseu.

Re: the Wonder bread discussion.

Wonder Bread was advertised as "building strong bodies 12 ways." I think Regina is whimsically implying that Samson was as strong as he was partly because he ate Wonder bread all the time.

The distraction and trouble is where the beauty of pain exists.

regina is pretty funky. she takes huge emotional concepts, then makes them silly with weird metaphors and totally random crap thrown in. thats what the wonder bread is. its just a random note to break the underlying intensity of the emotion in the song.

i like it, but i can see how it could be distracting and troubling.

This is a slower version than on the album. Nice, though.

this was my song for the rugby player - summer 2007. hate him - but still love the song.

Oh, that explains everything.

This isn't the version on Begin to Hope. This is the Songs version, I am pretty sure.
Report as inappropriate
I may be mistaken, but this version doesn't sound exactly like the Begin To Hope version of the song.
