Songs That Stab Me in the Heart: “Hey There Delilah” by Ju’not Joyner
A thousand miles is pretty far
But they’ve got trains and planes and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way
This is a cover of the Plain White Tees song done by Ju’Not Joyner on American Idol in season 8. Joyner didn’t make it past this round, which is a crime. This version of the song, which I had not ever heard, moved me to tears the night he performed it, and every time I’ve listened to it since.
