Born To Try

Doing everything that I believe in

Going by the rules that I’ve been taught

More understanding of what’s around me

And protected from the walls of love

 

All that you see is me

And all I truly believe

 

That I was born to try

I’ve learned to love

Be understanding

And believe in life

But you’ve got to make choices

Be wrong or right

Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try

 

No point in talking what you should have been

And regretting the things that went on

Life’s full of mistakes, destinies and fate

Remove the clouds, look at the bigger picture

 

All that you see is me

And all I truly believe

 

That I was born to try

I’ve learned to love

Be understanding

And believe in life

But you’ve got to make choices

Be wrong or right

Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try

 

All that you see is me

And all I truly believe

 

All that you see is me

And all I truly believe

 

That I was born to try

I’ve learned to love

Be understanding

And believe in life

But you’ve got to make choices

Be wrong or right

Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try

 

But you’ve got to make choices

Be wrong or right

Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try

Innocent Eyes

Do you remember when you were 7?
And the only thing that you wanted to do
Was show your mum that you could play the piano
Ten years have passed
And the one thing that will last
Is that same old song that we played along and made my momma cry

I miss those days and I miss those ways
When I got lost in fantasies
In a cartoon land of mysteries
In a place you won’t grow old
in a place you won’t feel cold and I’ll sing

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Seems I’m lost in my reflection
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Find a star for my direction
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
For the little girl inside who won’t just hide
Don’t let me see mistakes and lies
Let me keep my faith and innocent eyes

Do you remember when you were 15?
And the kids at school called you a fool
‘Cause you took the chance to dream
In the time that’s passed and the one thing that will last
Is that same old song that we played along and made my daddy cry

I miss those days and I miss those ways
When I got lost in fantasies
In a cartoon land of mysteries
In a place you won’t grow old
in a place you wont feel cold and I’ll sing

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Seems I’m lost in my reflection
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Find a star for my direction
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
For the little girl inside who won’t just hide
Don’t let me see mistakes and lies
Let me keep my faith and innocent eyes

Under my feeling, under my skin
Under the thoughts from within
Learning the subtext
Of the mind
See creation, how we’re defined

My innocent eyes

I miss those days and I miss those ways
When I got lost in fantasies
In a cartoon land of mysteries
In a place you won’t grow old
in a place you won’t feel cold and I’ll sing

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Seems I’m lost in my reflection
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Find a star for my direction
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
For the little girl inside who won’t just hide
Don’t let me see mistakes and lies
Let me keep my faith and innocent eyes

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Faith and innocent eyes
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Faith and innocent eyes
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
For the little girl inside who won’t just hide
Don’t let me see mistakes and lies
Let me keep my faith and innocent eyes

2. Innocent Eyes
 

Not Me, Not I

You mixed me up for someone
Who’d fall apart without you
Yeah you broke my heart for the first time
But I’ll get over that too
It’s hard to find the reasons
Who can see the rhyme?
I guess we were seasons out of time
I guess you didn’t know me

[Chorus:]
If you think love is blind?
That I wouldn’t see the flaws between the lines
Surprise, and I caught you out
On every single time that you lied
Did you think that every time I see you I would cry
No not me, not I, not I, no not me, not I

The story goes on without you
And there’s got to be another ending
But yeah you broke my heart it won’t be the last time
But I’ll get over them too
As a new door opens we close the ones behind
And if you search your soul I know you’ll find
You never really knew me

[Chorus]

All you said to me
All you promised me
All the mystery never did believe
No I never cry no I never not me not I

If you think love is blind
That I wouldn’t see the flaws between the lines
Surprise, and I caught you out
On every single time that you lied
Did you think that every time I see you I would cry
No not I, I won’t cry
No not me, not I, not I,
Not I
No not me, not I

3. Not Me, Not I
 

Throw It Away

Fly by frankie thinks he’s superman
Like a child at the wheel of a rocket
He comes round here with a license to love
But I don’t know where he got it
I trusted you offered everything
But I’m not sure you deserve it

You tell me that I’m lucky
But I feel like giving up
’cause a heart like mine’s wasted on you
If you don’t know what you’ve got

You throw it away
Throw it away
All the heart and the soul I’ve been giving
You throw it away
Throw it away
Like it’s no big deal you’ll be missin’
You throw it away
Throw it away
Run it underground

Fly by frankie’s got it in his head
That he’s something I know that he’s not
He’s like a blind bull in a china shop
When it comes to affairs of the heart

You wouldn’t know what love is
If it hit you like a rock
And a girl like me is lost on you
If you don’t know what you’ve got

[Chorus]

Every breath in the park
Every dance in the dark
Every promise you make
You go and throw it away
Every smile in the rain
You know it’s always the same
You go and do it again
You go and throw it away

You wouldn’t know what love is
If it hit you like a rock
And a girl like me is lost on you
If you don’t know what you’ve got

[Chorus]

Lost Without You

Written by Matthew Gerrard & Bridget Benenate

I know I can be a little stubborn sometimes
You might say a little righteous and too proud
I just want to find a way to compromise
Cos I believe that we can work things out

 

I thought I had all the answers never giving in
But baby since you’ve gone I admit that I was wrong

 

All I know is I’m lost without you
I’m not gonna lie
How am I going to be strong without you?
I need you by my side
If we ever say we’ll never be together and we ended with goodbye
Don’t know what I’d do
I’m lost without you
I keep trying to find my way
Yeah but all I know is I’m lost without you
I keep trying to face the day I’m lost without you

 

How am I ever gonna get rid of these blues?
Baby I’m so lonely all the time
Everywhere I go I get so confused
You’re the only thing that’s on my mind

 

Oh my bed’s so cold at night and I miss you more each day
Only you can make it right no I’m not too proud to say

 

All I know is I’m lost without you
I’m not gonna lie
How am I going to be strong without you?
I need you by my side
If we ever say we’ll never be together and we ended with goodbye
Don’t know what I’d do
I’m lost without you
I keep trying to find my way but all I know is I’m lost without you
I keep trying to face the day I’m lost without you

 

If I could only hold you now
And make the pain just go away
Can’t stop the tears from running down my face
Oh

 

All I know is I’m lost without you
I’m not gonna lie
How am I going to be strong without you?
I need you by my side
If we ever say we’ll never be together and we ended with goodbye
Don’t know what I’d do
I’m lost without you
I keep trying to find my way yeah but all I know is I’m lost without you
I keep trying to face the day I’m lost without you

Predictable

Written by Delta Goodrem, Jarrad Rogers & Kara DioGuardi

I smile
You say I take your breathe away
You say you love me and you make
All the right promises to break

 

And when I turn around you’re always there
Like that’s the proof you really care
But I see right through you and I think
To myself

 

You’re just so predictable
In every way
I want you to know I know your game
It’s so unbelievable
how you never change
you won’t get away
with loving me
you’re just so predictable

 

I run
You say you won’t give up the chase
You say you’ll follow me anyplace
So you can make the same mistakes

 

You know just what to do
And How to use the best of you
To try and change my mind
But my eyes are opening this time
And I read you

 

You’re just so predictable
In every way
I want you to know I know your game
It’s so unbelievable
how you never change
you won’t get away
with loving me
you’re just so predictable

 

Now that I know your every move
How you gonna hide baby what you gonna do
Now that somebody knows the truth
About you and how you’re just so

 

You’re just so predictable
In every way
I want you to know I know your game
It’s so unbelievable
how you never change
you won’t get away
with loving me
you’re just so predictable

Butterfly

Written by Eliot Kennedy, Gary Barlow & Tim Woodcock

I won’t hurt you
I’ll protect you
I won’t let the rain fall down
I’ll always be around

And baby i will understand if sometimes
You just want to spread your wings and fly
And let your colours shine

And everyday i wanna be a risk you take
Make a promise that will never break for life

You’re my butterfly
Don’t fly away open my hands your free
Praying you’ll come back to me
You’re my butterfly
Don’t fly away
You’re my reality
Always be my gravity
You’re my butterfly
Come on and touch the sky
You’re my butterfly

I won’t forget you
Or neglect you
Won’t let no-one take your place
In your eyes i see my face

And baby do you know that everybody watches
Every time that you take flight
They’re blinded by your light

Every day the feeling’s gonna be the same
I can promise that will never change for life

[chorus]

In My Own Time

Written by Delta Goodrem

So much is happening to me.
So much that I can’t even see.
So many words of wisdom that I am trying to be.
Catch me if I should fall.
And even more so while I’m standing tall.

My head is spinning around and it’s making me dizzy.
I’m spinning around and it’s making me ill.
You don’t understand what I’m going through just to find a way to climb.
It’ll be in my own time.
It’ll be in my own time.

Whispering thoughts in all different ways.
That I’m in a daze.
My head is spinning around and it’s making me dizzy.
I’m spinning around and it’s making me ill.
You don’t understand what I’m going through just to find a way to climb.

It’ll be in my own time.
’cause it’ll be in my own time.
In my own time.
In my own time I’ll take a chance.
In my own time I’ll find romance. In my own time.

It’ll be mine.
After the clouds there’ll be the rain.
After the sun there’ll be the moon it doesn’t matter.
’cause it’ll be in my own time

 
Lyrics

My Big Mistake

Written by Delta Goodrem, Eliot Kennedy, Gary Barlow & Tim Woodcock

Amazing fairytale that had come true
Mr reliable romantic was you
Blinded misguided in the arms of love
Just ’cause it suited the both of us

Then it all went wrong
I’m the one to blame
Taking you for granted
In so many ways
When i look back now
How can i ever forget
You make me so happy
The day we met

How could something so magic (magic)
Become something so tragic (tragic)
Right before my eyes
Two separate lives
Every second was a precious moment
Now i’m thinking about the path i’ve chosen
Wish i could un-make my big mistake
My big mistake

Communication had broken down
This situation was out of our hands
Well my hands
You’ve got to please understand
That i was too young, yes just
Too young for that
I guess it all went wrong
And i’m the one to blame
But what i would give to have you back again

The days the weeks the months
The years that we have wasted
I’m sorry
I still love you
I don’t expect a call ’cause my apology’s belated
I’m sorry
And i miss you all my life

[chorus]

This Is Not Me

Written by Delta Goodrem & Vince Pizzinga

Oooh

What happened?
Why didn’t I listen to myself
I thought I’d know how to handle it
But I didn’t

So confused
Where I stand
Do I stand alone
With each individual

This is not me
I used to be so strong
Now I feel weak
This is not me
I never said that it was
I didn’t like it because I lost my way
This is not me
You know that it’s true
And I’d be lying to you just to convince myself
This is not me

What happened?
Why didn’t I speak up at the time
I thought I’d know what was going on
But I didn’t
So confused where I stand
Do I stand alone
With each individual
This is not me
I used to be so strong
Now I feel weak
This is not me
I never said that it was
I didn’t like it because I had lost my way

This is not me
You know that it’s true
And I’d be lying to you just to convince myself
This is not me

Whoo oooh yeah
Hey yeah

So confused where I stand
Do I stand alone
Someone tell me
Cause this is not me
If I said that it was, I didn’t like it because I had lost my way
This is not me, you know that it’s true
I’d be lying to you just to convince myself

This is not me

Running Away

Written by Delta Goodrem & Vince Pizzinga

I close my eyes and make a wish for
Inner peace and tranquillity inside
My mind I feel it’s changing
Breaking down the defences of my heart
It’s like a new adventure
And this is my life
No longer know the girl inside
The stranger in my mind

I’m running away. Running away from you
Though I beg you to stay. I’m running away from you
I’m running away. From predictable
Miss reliable. So methodical
Wanna be individual. And original
So radical. And desirable

Put a message in a bottle
Watch it sail across the ocean blue
So free of limitations
A vision I can only fantasize
I’m floating in a new direction
As this is my life

No longer know the girl inside
The stranger in my mind

A Year Ago Today

Another year older
A little bit stronger
A little bit wiser than? a year ago today

Looking over my shoulder
I was so much younger then
I can’t believe what happened
A year ago today

And I just can’t forget about it
It wouldn’t mean a thing
You went away
A year ago today

Another year gone by
Oh the tears have run dry
Life seemed so unkind
A year ago today

And I just can’t understand it
And I don’t think I ever will
You went away
A year ago today

And I just can’t understand it
And I don’t think I ever will
You went away
A year ago today

And how many times have I questioned myself
What more could I do
And how many times did I fool myself
Over you oh? yeah

You’ve gotta pick yourself up,
Take another look
And dust yourself off cause life’s too good,
I’ll say it to myself and I’ll say it again
Lover will never end

And though we’re so far apart
You’re forever in my heart

Another year older
A little bit stronger
On this anniversary
You’re watching over me

You went away
A year ago today

You went away
A year ago today

 
Lyrics

12. Year Ago Today
 

Longer

Written by Delta Goodrem

I see you everyday
I guess we walk the same way
To wherever we’re going
Every morning and every night
Do you smile to be polite
No way of knowing
I can’t explain it
But I’m not complaining
If I’m happy or sad
If only we had

Just a minute longer. Than this
Just a little closer. Than this
I would get to know you
A little bit better
I could tell you
If only we had
Just a minute longer

A moment had arrived
It was just the right time
For conversation
And he asked me
What do you do?
What is your name?
Where are you from?
But before long
We’re at the station

And I was so frustrated
In fact devastated
I feel happy but sad
If only we had

I wonder
I wonder what you think about
Do you think about me
Maybe I’m a dreamer
But I just believe
And I know what I see
Forever wishing
There would be another day
Oh if only we had
I don’t care happy or sad

 
Lyrics

Will You Fall For Me

Woo oooh
Yeah ah

My head’s full of thought
Thoughts of you
And I’m distracted so easy
Thinking what to do
So unsure, so unfamiliar
Am I wrong to think that something could happen

Will you fall for me
I need to know, the way I’d like you to
Baby, will you fall for me
The way I’ve fallen for you

I’m not acting like myself
And I’m playing the role of someone else
And my hearts beating so fast
I can’t stop it
And Im so unsure
So unfamiliar
Am I wrong to think that something could happen

Will you fall for me
The way I’d like you to
Will you fall for me
The way I’ve fallen for you
The way I’ve fallen for you
The way I’ve fallen for you

Fallen for, fallen for you

For you..

So unsure, so unfamiliar
Am I wrong to think,
That something could happen
Was I wrong to think I

Will you fall for me
The way I’d like you to
Will you fall for me
The way I’ve fallen for you
The way I’ve fallen for you
The way I’ve fallen for you
