OUT OF THE BLUE

Written by Delta Goodrem & Guy Chambers

A new beginning

A new chapter of my life

Started the day when I thought

It could be my last

My eyes were wide shut but I

I hadn’t given up

Just thought I’d be walking

The world alone

 

Out of the blue

There I met you

Showed me a life

I can’t see without you

And there’s just no way

That I can fight these emotions

Your energy runnin’ through me

Nobody can renew me

Like you

Out of the blue

Can this be true?

 

My family and friends,

They were my life

I wasn’t one for butterflies

But you give me love that I can’t disguise

And there will be times

When we’re apart

I want you to know

You’re in my heart

Growing into a beautiful garden

 

No emotions

My whole body felt like ice

Needed to feel that the sun would shine my way

My world had turned to dust but I

Had my faith and trust

Just thought I’d be walking

The world alone

(Chorus)

Out of the blue

There I met you

I can’t believe

That this happened so soon

And there’s just no way

That I can fight these emotions

Your energy runnin’ through me

THE ANALYST

Written by Delta Goodrem, Cathy Dennis & Guy Chambers

Prepare yourself to meet

A girl who cannot sleep

Dividing every question

Till the questions are complete

Every twisted tongue

She studies everyone

She won’t leave any stone unturned

The night is oh so young

 

Oh, oh

She’s travelling back in time

Questioning every line

That someone said

Oh oh

She’s trying to understand

 

Free her mind,

She’s always the analyst

Silent space –

The culprit, the catalyst

Trying to make sense of her life

Digging around in the dirt,

She’s a slave to the work

She’s always the analyst

 

Can you be sure we haven’t met?

See, the eyes they don’t forget

They wander through the passage ways

That tease the restless mind

Can’t afford to slip

The picture’s gotta fit

Her world’s a photograph

That gets dissected bit by bit

 

Oh, oh

She’s travelling back in time

Questioning every line

That someone said

Oh, oh

She’s trying to understand

 

Free her mind

She’s always the analyst

Silent space

The culprit, the catalyst

Trying to make sense of her life

Digging around in the dirt

She’s a slave to the work

She’s always the analyst

 

She’s always the analyst

She’s always the analyst

 

Re-living

The mistakes she’s made

Not a moment for

The curious girl

 

Free her mind

She’s always the analyst

Silent space

The culprit, the catalyst

Trying to make sense

Of this life

Digging around

Breaking it down

Neurotic thoughts

Burning the ground

Every sigh

Every sound

She’s always the analyst

 
Lyrics

MISTAKEN IDENTITY

Written by Delta Goodrem & Billy Mann

The girl in the chair

with the long golden hair

Well that used to be me

A flirtatious smile unpredictably wild

Always trying to please

 

I was always walking

one step ahead

Or so I thought until the monster crawled into my bed

Rewind and erase

that shock look on your face

’cause your Monalisa is dead

 

A million words

a thousand days

 

The girl I used to be

has a terrible case

of mistaken identity

And yesterday’s girl

is not what you see

It’s a terrible case

of mistaken identity

 

The sun likes to rise

and the moon likes to fall

And that’s kinda like my life

I’ve played the role

of the nice girl next door

Who gets cut like a knife

Now I’m not looking

for apology eyes

And I don’t want to spend

a night on a bed

of beautiful lies

Erase and rewind

leave that sick girl behind

And fast forward, fast forward

 

A thousand days…

 

The girl I used to be

has a terrible case

of mistaken identity

And yesterday’s girl

is not what you see

it’s a terrible case

of mistaken identity

 

That’s not me

it’s just not me

 

The girl I used to be

has a terrible case

of mistaken identity

And yesterday’s girl

is not what you see

it’s a terrible case

of mistaken identity

 
Lyrics

EXTRAORDINARY DAY

Written by Delta Goodrem & Vince Pizzinga

Change

like secrets in the wind

I hear the whispers

madame butterfly

Spread your precious wings

I watch you fly away

 

I know

I can’t change fate

of that July the 8th

and it was never the same

I know

this stage is frightening

but it’s oh so enlightening

Is this how karma goes? oh

 

Who would have thought

when chance came calling

that this would be my

defining story?

And who could have guessed on my life’s journey

I could find my way

through this

extraordinary day.

 

Why?

Had my universe gone mad?

Was there no compassion?

I was wrong…

So many loving hands reaching out to hold me

 

I know

I can’t change fate

of that July the 8th

and it was never the same

I know

that this stage is frightening

but it’s oh so enlightening

Is this how karma goes? oh

 

Who would have thought

when chance came calling

that this would be my

defining story

And who could have guessed on my life’s journey

I could find my way

through this

extraordinary day

 

Nothing is isolated

 

I know

I can’t change fate

of that July the 8th

and it was never the same

I know

this stage is frightening

but it’s oh so enlightening

Is this how karma goes? oh

 

Extraordinary day

this would be my

defining story

And who could have guessed on my life’s journey

I could find my way

through this

extraordinary day

A LITTLE TOO LATE

Written by Delta Goodrem, Eliot Kennedy & Gary Barlow

(They say)

I’m a little too young

to understand

But it’s a little to late

too hold my hand

You know I never subscribe to yes sir no sir

gonna learn, gonna love

gonna take my chance

It’s a little too late

for you to say

that I’m a little too young

to feel this way

 

‘Cause I just wanna be loved just wanna be heard

Be lost in the feeling

standing here

At the door to my life

Now that day has arrived

so loud and clear

You’ll hear me singing

Do do doo do do do do do do

I’m singing

Do do do do do do do do do

 

(They say)

I’m a little too lost

without you here

(They said)

that I’m a little too soft

and too sincere

‘Cause I never subscribe to who sir me sir

Gonna stand, gonna fall

gonna face my fears

It’s a little too late

for me to wait

’cause your’re never to young to feel this way

 

‘Cause I just wanna be loved just wanna be heard

Be lost in the feeling standing

Here at the door to my life

Now that day has arrived so loud and clear

You’ll hear me singing

Do do doo do do do do do do

I’m singing

Do do do do do do do do do

 

If I want your help

I’ll say help me

I’m okay

I’m alright

Won’t you hear

me loud and clear

 

‘Cause I just wanna be loved just wanna be heard

Be lost in the feeling

standing here

At the door to my life

Now that day has arrived

so loud and clear

You’ll hear me singing

Do do doo do do do do do do

I’m singing

Do do do do do do do do do

 

I’m a little too young

to understand

But it’s a little too late

to hold my hand

I’m a little too lost

without you here

That I’m a little too soft

and too sincere

BE STRONG

Written by Delta Goodrem, Bridget Benenate & Matthew Gerrard

Are you swimming upstream in oceans of blue?

Do you feel like you’re sinking?

Are you sick of the rain after all you’ve been through?

Well I know what you’re thinking

When you can’t take it

You can make it

Sometime soon I know you will see

 

‘Cause when you’re in your darkest hour

And all of the light just fades away

When you’re like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of grey

Well hang on, and be strong

 

We’re taking each step one day at a time

You can’t lose your spirit

Let live and let live forget and forgive

It’s all how you see it

And just remember keep it together

Don’t you know you’re never alone?

 

‘Cause when you’re in your darkest hour

And all of the light just fades away

When you’re like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of grey

Well hang on, and be strong

 

No, you’re not defeated, oh

And soon you’ll be smiling once again

Then you won’t have to feel it

Let it go with the wind

Time passes us by

And know that you’re allowed to cry

 

‘Cause when you’re in your darkest hour

And all of the light just fades away

When you’re like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of grey

Well hang on, and be strong

 

Oh, oh

 

Hang on, hang on

Be strong

Hold on and be strong

 
Lyrics

6. Be Strong
 

ELECTRIC STORM

Written by Delta Goodrem, Cathy Dennis & Guy Chambers

Fighting for no reward

Cold in the rain I’m tossing and turning

Love’s an electric storm of pleasure and pain

Where thunder and lightening are crashing and striking us down

 

Two people shipwrecked

Stranded alone

Praying for dry land to save our souls

Hurricane season just knocked us down

Emotional suicides running the ground

 

I won’t give up never never

I won’t be struck by the weather

Hold on when the wind’s so strong

Tell me how can we find our way home in love’s electric storm?

 

Feels like our last chance to get out alive

Will we survive this treachous night

Predators waiting circling around

Sky full of fireworks burn without sound

 

I won’t give up never never

I won’t be struck by the weather

Hold on when the wind’s so strong

Tell me how can we find our way home in loves electric storm?

 

Have we never been stronger?

Have we never been tighter?

But we’re close to the wire again

Have we never been safer?

 

I won’t give up never never

I won’t be struck by the weather

Hold on when the wind’s so strong

Tell me how can we find our way home?

Tell me how can we find our way home?

In love’s electric storm

 
Lyrics

ALMOST HERE

Written by Brian McFadden, Mark Taylor & Paul Barry

Did I hear you right

’cause I thought you said

Let’s think it over

You have been my life

And I never planned

Growing old without you

Shadows bleeding through the light

Where the love once shined so bright

Came without a reason

Don’t let go on us tonight

Love’s not always black and white

Haven’t I always loved you?

 

Chorus

 

But when I need you

You’re almost here

And I know that’s not enough

And when I’m with you

I’m close to tears

‘Cause you’re only almost here

 

I would change the world

If I had a chance

Oh won’t you let me

Treat me like a child

Throw your arms around me

Oh please protect me

 

Bruised and battered by your words

Dazed and shattered now it hurts

Haven’t I always loved you

 

But when I need you

You’re almost here

And I know that’s not enough

And when I’m with you

I’m close to tears

’cause you’re only almost here

 

Bruised and battered by your words

Dazed and shattered now it hurts

 

Haven’t I always loved you?

But when I need you

You’re almost here

 

Well I never knew how far behind I’d left you

And when I hold you, you’re almost here

 

Well I’m sorry that I took our love for granted

And now I’m with you I’m close to tears

’cause I know I’m almost here

Only almost here

 
Lyrics

MISCOMMUNICATION

Written by Delta Goodrem & Guy Chambers

Oohh you rubbed me up

the wrong way

Oohh it was something that you didn’t say

Gotta get it back

gotta get it back

gotta get it back

or we might just regret it

 

We seem to have a knack

for miscommunication

it stabbed us in the back

this time

Is this the end of the line?

’cause that’d be a crime

 

Now I sit under an angry cloud

what got hold of me

There’s a voice

that sounds too loud

it bangs on endlessly…

Wanna live in another world with no frustrations

and miscommunication

 

Oohh why’d we have

to try hard?

Oohh you got under my radar

Wanna be detached

wanna be detached

wanna be detached

so I can just forget it

 

We seem to have a knack

for miscommunication

it stabbed us in the back

this time

Is this the end of the line?

’cause that’d be a crime

 

Now I sit under an angry cloud

what got hold of me

there’s a voice

that sounds too loud

it bangs on endlessly…

Wanna live in another world with no frustrations

and miscommunication

 

(When we are)

Transatlantic

(he knows it)

drives me frantic

(so I ask myself)

what’s the future

(why getta)

new computer

 

Oohh it was something t

hat zou didn’t say

 
Lyrics

SANCTUARY

Written by Delta Goodrem, Cathy Dennis & Guy Chambers

Just like the glorious

Northern star you guided me

Shining a light of pure tranquility

To a secret place where no one else could go

Free to reveal the things I never show

 

Strong like a symphony

You protected me

From reality

 

Somewhere to love

Somewhere to breathe

Somewhere to call

My sanctuary

Here in the dark

I can be strong

Knowing that nothing can hurt from now on

Somewhere to love

Somewhere to breathe

Somewhere to call

My sanctuary

Closer to the sun

To your heart I run

 

I was deserted like the moon is at the dawn

I never thought

I’d ever find a place

So beautiful

All my heart was falling

Like a stone

Deep into an ocean vast

And colourful

 

Strong like a symphony

You protected me

From reality

 

Somewhere to love somewhere to breathe

Somewhere to call my sanctuary

Here in the dark

I can be strong

Knowing that nothing can hurt from now on

 

Somewhere to love somewhere to breathe

Somewhere to call

My sanctuary

Closer to the sun

To your heart I run

 

One step

On the horizon

A safe place

Up on the mountain

So far away

From chaotic life

 
Lyrics

LAST NIGHT ON EARTH

Written by Delta Goodrem, Billy Mann & Christopher Rojas

It’s the last night on earth before the great divide

My hands are shaking time was never on our side

And there’s no such thing as a beautiful goodbye

As an ordinary day I prayed for you a thousand times

 

It’s never enough

No matter how many times I tried to tell you this is love

 

Chorus

 

If tomorrow never comes I want you to know right now that I

I’m gonna love you until the day I die

And if tomorrow falls asleep can you hold me first

I’m gonna love you like it’s the last night on earth

 

Like it’s the last night on earth ohhh

 

A penny for your thoughts

A picture so it lasts

Let’s knock down the walls of immortality

Your fingers on my skin only you can hear my fear

Only you can help me heal

I see forever with you here

 

It’s never enough no matter how many miles stand between us this is love

 

Chorus

 

If tomorrow never comes I want you to know right now that I

I’m gonna love you until the day I die

And if tomorrow falls asleep can you hold me first

I’m gonna love you like it’s the last night on earth

 

It’s never enough

No it’s never enough

(It’s never enough)

oohh

 

The afterglow

The horizon line

The shadows fall

Will you still be mine?

Will you still be mine?

Will you still be mine I ask

 

Chorus

 

If tomorrow never comes I want you to know right now that I

I’m gonna love you until the day I die

And if tomorrow falls asleep can you hold me first

I’m gonna love you like it’s the last night on earth

 

(I’m gonna love you like) It’s the last night on earth

(I’m gonna love you like) It’s the last night on earth

 
Lyrics

FRAGILE

Written by Delta Goodrem & Adrian Hannan

Six thoughts at once I can’t focus on one

Seven days a week but my life has just begun

So caught in emotion and I’m overcome

As I’m falling down I come undone

 

Chorus

 

Sometimes I feel like I’m alone

Sometimes I feel like I’m not that strong

Sometimes I feel so frail so small

Sometimes I feel vulnerable

Sometimes I feel a little fragile ahhhhhh

A little fragile

 

In six thousand years what will this mean

Words from the heart or a melody

So caught in emotion and I’m overcome

As I’m falling down I come undone

 

Chorus

 

If people can see right through my eyes

Like an open door that I can’t disguise

I won’t be afraid from the tears I cry

I’ll not run I’ll not hide this is how I feel inside

A little fragile

A little fragile

 

Sometimes I feel like I’m alone

Sometimes I feel like I’m not that strong

Sometimes I feel so frail so small

Sometimes I feel vulnerable

Sometimes I feel a little fragile

A little fragile

 
Lyrics

DISORIENTATED

Written by Delta Goodrem & Vince Pizzinga

Looking in an empty space

Searching for my inner place

Out of patience

Out of balance

Out of time

Out of breath

Out of focus

These shapes in my mind

 

Who is this face I see

Why is this happening to me

Out of patience

Out of balance

Out of time

Out of breath

Out of focus

These shapes in my mind

 

Things are changing

So much arranging of my life

I must take hold

I’ll keep on spinning

Until I find myself

Again

 

So I woke up

And there’s the moon

Seems to have risen

Just a little soon

But who’s calling out my name anyway?

 

I’m disorientated

I’m trying not to be jaded

When it’s all so complicated

‘Cause I’m a little disorientated

 

Walking in a different space

Looking back just in case

Out of patience

Out of balance

Out of time

Out of breath

Out of focus

These shapes in my mind

 

Love is forever

And hate was in the never

Out of patience

Out of balance

Out of time

Out of breath

Out of focus

These shapes in my mind

 

Things are changing

So much arranging of my life

I must take hold

I’ll keep on spinning

Until I find myself

Again

 

So I woke up

And there’s the clock

It was ticking backwards

Had I forgot

But what day is it anyway?

 

I’m disorientated

I’m trying not to be jaded

When it’s all so complicated

‘Cause I’m a little disorientated

 

Things are changing

So much arranging of my life

I must take hold

I’ll keep on spinning

Until I find myself

Again

 

So I woke up

And saw the sun

Seems like my life

Has just begun

How ’bout I start it today anyway?

 

I’m disorientated

I’m trying not to be jaded

When it’s all so complicated

‘Cause I’m a little disorientated

 

I’m disorientated

I’m trying not to be jaded

When it’s all so complicated

‘Cause I’m a little disorientated

 
Lyrics

YOU ARE MY ROCK

Written by Delta Goodrem & Guy Chambers

No one can buy true love int their life

We all need someone on standby

The night drew long

You kept me strong

Now I can thank you

In this song

 

You are my rock

You touch my soul

You brought me light

When all hope was gone

You showed me the secrets that I could unlock

You are my brother

You are my rock

 

I’ve seen people come and go young and old

From all walks of life

They all leave a bookmark

In the story that I write

Only when your luck’s run out you find out who really counts

 

 

You are my rock

You touch my soul

You brought me light

When I couldn’t go on

You showed me the secrets that I could unlock

You are my brother

You are my rock

 

No one can buy

New love in their life

We all need someone

Until we die

 
Lyrics

14. You Are My Rock
 

NOBODY LISTENED

Written by Delta Goodrem & Vince Pizzinga

I am in one of those dreams
Where you just just keep on falling
No one hears you calling

All that you saw was my smile
But it’s been dark for a while
And the days have gone cold
No more sleep for my soul
Or thats what ive been told

Did you think that things would be ok?
That my life could keep going on this way?

When I cried, when I shouted and I screamed and I yelled
And I was mad and I was angry
How come no one could tell?
Say why didnt you listen to me?
Was it really that hard to see?
Nobody listened

One day I found the creature asleep
I had a secret to keep
And now the whole world knows

And if I did now go
And I know be on show
Unprotected did you know
From it all came the blow

Did you think that things would be ok?
That my life could keep going on this way?

When I cried, when I shouted and I screamed and I yelled
And I was mad and I was angry
How come noone could tell?
Say why didnt you listen to me?
Was it really that hard to see?
Nobody listened
Nobody listened

Invader took the breath from me
Healer, the angel did I see

All that you saw was my smile
But it’s been dark for a while
And the days have gone cold

When I cried, when I shouted and I screamed and I yelled
And I was mad and I was angry
How come noone could tell?
Say why didnt you listen to me?
Was it really that hard to see?
Nobody listened
Nobody listened

And then I cried and I shouted and I screamed and I yelled
And I was mad and I was angry
How come noone could tell
Say why didnt you listen to me?
Was it really that hard to see?
Nobody listened
Nobody listened

Invader took the breath from me
Healer, the angel did I see

Invader took my breath away
Healer, the angel did I see

It’s not too far to go now
Like a train off the rails here
Cuz nobody listened
Nobody listened (nobody listened)

But they’re listening now…

 
Lyrics
