He went into great detail about his first encounter with Delilah, who was a friend of his friend Kim. Kim asked if Delilah could join them for a concert because she had "nothing to do" that evening and was heading back to art school in New York the next day. The three of them had a blast at the concert, and before she got out of the car, he handed her one of his CDs, saying, "You know, I've got a song about you. When do I get to hear my song?
