This song is all about love, and told through the story of Samson and Delilah. Samson had tremendous strength, but he lost it when Delilah had his head shaved. In the song, Spektor makes uses this comparison to show how she feels, how even after she did something so horrible to her loved one, he kissed her til the morning light and told her that she'd done alright. It shows the unconditional forgiveness you have for someone you love.
The lyrics, "The history books forgot about us and The Bible didn't mention us" is the idea that they are nothing special: love can strike anyone at any time and the fact that they aren't miraculous people doesn't diminish their value or their feelings, as love is for everyone.
