FELINE

Written by Delta Goodrem, Vince Pizzinga, Nathaniel Motte & Sean Foreman

So they say
That you’re the hunter or you’re the prey
You can run away
Or you can show ’em how to be brave

It doesn’t matter what you do
They’ll be hunting after you
Trap you like an animal
And then everywhere you turn
There’s another torch that burns
It doesn’t hurt me anymore

I’m running into the fire
Falling into the flames
Turns me into the lion
I am a feline, feline
Fear the feline

I feel alive
Broke the bars that kept me caged inside
Yeah it’s my time
To be the fearless queen out in the wild

I’ve been earning all my stripes
Standing up to every fight
You woke up the animal
And I’m never going back
I’m the leader of the pack
Got the scars of a warrior

I’m running into the fire
Falling into the flames
It turns me into the lion
I am a feline, feline
Fear the feline

Feline
Feline
Feline
Feline

I’ve been earning all my stripes
Standing up to every fight
You woke up the animal
And I’m never going back
I’m the leader of the pack
Got the scars of a warrior

I’m running into the fire
Falling into the flames
It turns me into the lion
I am a feline, feline
Fear the feline

WINGS

Written by Delta Goodrem, Anthony Egizii & David Musumeci

A beating drum

It’s in my lungs

I breathe it in, it takes my breath away

I don’t look back

It’s just a trap

We are all one but we’re not the same

 

Everybody’s looking for a new horizon

Everybody wants to leave the world behind them

Everybody’s looking for a new horizon

Everybody’s looking for a second chance

Everybody’s wishing they could take a stand

Everybody’s looking for a second chance

 

What if I lose my self control

What if I choose to let it go

I want to let you and me collide

Baby these wings were made

These wings were made to fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

 

The deepest veins

The darkest truth

A secret place I only wanna share with you

Look in my eyes

Undress my soul

 

Cause everybody’s looking for a new horizon

Everybody wants to leave the world behind them

Everybody’s looking for a new horizon

Everybody’s looking for a second chance

Everybody’s wishing they could take a stand

Everybody’s looking for a second chance

 

What if I lose my self control

What if I choose to let it go

I want to let you and me collide

Baby these wings were made

These wings were made to fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

These wings were made to

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

 

What if I lose my self control

What if I choose to let it go

I want to let you and me collide

Baby these wings were made to fly

What if I lose my self control

What if I choose to let it go

I want to let you and me collide

Baby these wings were made

These wings were made to fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

These wings were made to

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

Fly, la la la

 

These wings were made to fly

DEAR LIFE

Written by Delta Goodrem, Anthony Egizii & David Musumeci

Time will change you
Nothing lasts forever more

Tomorrow’s all we’re living for

And lights will blind you

Illusions keep you wanting more

Just look past revolving doors

To find what’s real

 

Dear life

Am I doing this right?

Can you see me tonight

Can you help me

Dear Life

And I know that I can’t understand

What you hold in your hands for me

Dear life

 

Love will change you

No matter if you stay with them

You’ll never be the same again

You’ve shown me magic

Highs I’ve never felt before

Memories that I thank you for

From deep in my soul

 

Dear life

Am I doing this right?

Can you see me tonight

Can you help me

Dear Life

And I know that I can’t understand

But you’re holding your hands for me

Dear life

 

I’m a survivor, I’m a survivor,

I’m a survivor

Dear life

 

Sometimes it hurts you

Maybe it’s a lesson learned

To bring my feet back to this earth

To find what’s real

 

Dear life

Am I doing this right?

Can you see me tonight

Can you help me

Dear Life

And I know that I can’t understand

But you’re holding your hands for me

Dear life

 

I’m a survivor, I’m survivor

I’m a survivor

Dear Life

 
Lyrics

JUST CALL

Written by Delta Goodrem, John Hume & Anthony Egizii

When the rain is pouring, flooding at your feet

Better days feel far behind

When the sun is hiding rays of light you need

And the clouds, they fill your mind

When the fire in your soul is feeling cold

And the lights burn out, I will be your flame

 

Just call my name and I’ll be there

I’ll be next to you soon as I can

When you’re down and out and your heart’s in doubt

Don’t know what to do, I’ll be there with you

 

And we’ll all say

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

I will be here just call my name

And we’ll all say

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

I will be here just call my name

 

When the mountain feels too high for you to climb

And you can’t breathe or see what’s near

When the night has gone too dark to see the stars

And you can’t wish cause it’s out of reach

 

Just call my name and I’ll be there

I’ll be next to you soon as I can

When you’re down and out and your heart’s in doubt

Don’t know what to do, I’ll be there with you

 

And we’ll all say

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

I will be here just call my name

And we’ll all say

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

I will be here just call my name

 

Just call my name and I’ll be there

I’ll be next to you soon as I can

When you’re down and out and your heart’s in doubt

Don’t know what to do, I’ll be there with you

 

You can spend your days living like you have lost

Or you can change, re-write the page

We can set the world on fire for the day

I’ll be your flame, I will be your flame

 

Just call my name and I’ll be there

I’ll be next to you soon as I can

When you’re down and out and your heart’s in doubt

Don’t know what to do, I’ll be there with you

 

And we’ll all say

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

I will be here just call my name

Yeah

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

Hi ya ya ya yaaa ya

I will be here just call my name

 

Just call my name and I’ll be there

I’ll be next to you soon as I can

When you’re down and out and your heart’s in doubt

Don’t know what to do, I’ll be there with you

 

I will be here, just call my name

IN THE NAME OF LOVE

Written by Delta Goodrem, Anthony Egizii & David Musumeci

Started on the outside, worked my way in

Tracing the road to where it all begins

Watching myself back, now I finally got it

I just felt so lost when I wasn’t honest

And now

 

I’m standing on my feet, saying how I feel

Fighting here for everything that’s real

And even when it hurts, for all that I am worth

I’m fighting here for everything I feel

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

 

They say all is fair in love and war

But nothing ever really is

The best intentions they can leave you torn

But baby that’s the way it is

Every choice in life may not be perfect

But in time we’ll find it will be forgotten

Yeah

 

I’m standing on my feet, I’m saying how I feel

Fighting here for everything that’s real

And even when it hurts, for all that I am worth

I’m fighting here for everything I feel

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

 

I tell it just the way it is

 

And here I am just standing on my feet, saying how I feel

Fighting here for everything that’s real

And even when it hurts, for all that I am worth

I’m fighting here for everything I feel

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

In the name of love

ENOUGH (feat. Gizzle)

Written by Delta Goodrem, Johnny Powers Severin, Vince Pizzinga, Ameerah Roelants, Zac Poor & Glenda ‘Gizzle’ Proby

They used to tell me

I wasn’t smart enough

Said I’d never make it

I don’t resemble the stars enough

Man, I’m just tryna get my heart to pump

Gave me all every time

I guess my all wasn’t enough

They said I talk too much

Didn’t talk enough

Told me I should change

But never said what I should change into

Man, I’m just tryna play the game witchu

So when you gon’ see I’m just me

I ain’t the same as you

 

I just wanna give my all

The rise and fall

The world

I just wanna leave my mark

Upon your heart

Oh world

 

What do I gotta say?

How do I gotta pray?

What do I gotta do?

Tell me

Who do I gotta be?

What do ya want from me?

What do I gotta prove?

No matter what I do

I’m not breaking for you

Tell me

What do I gotta give?

How do I gotta live?

When it’s not enough for you?

It’s not enough for you

 

Well, my first mistake

Was tryna please everybody

Only to realize that

I ain’t need anybody (nobody)

But all I ever wanted was acceptance

Till I accepted myself

And now I can check that off my checklist

I am no longer checking for your guest list

Or where I land on your best list

I’m looking at my reflection

And it tells me who the best is

So I could never do it like the rest did

 

I just wanna give my all

The rise and fall

The world

I just wanna leave my mark

Upon your heart

Oh world

 

What do I gotta say?

How do I gotta pray?

What do I gotta do?

Tell me

Who do I gotta be?

What do ya want from me?

What do I gotta prove?

No matter what I do

I’m not breaking for you

Tell me

What do I gotta give?

How do I gotta live?

When it’s not enough for you?

When it’s not enough for you?

 

Let’s go

I know they wanna see me break

I know they’d rather see me fall

And that’s the very reason why

I’ma rise above it all

They used to say I wasn’t a star

Said I wasn’t going very far

Well, now I’m shining like a star

And I’m screening all my calls

Can you call me back tomorrow

 

What do I gotta say?

How do I gotta pray?

What do I gotta do?

Tell me

Who do I gotta be?

Whaddya want from me?

What do I gotta prove?

No matter what I do

I’m not breaking for you

Tell me

What do I gotta give?

How do I gotta live?

When it’s not enough for you?

 

What do I gotta say?

How do I gotta pray?

What do I gotta do?

Tell me

Who do I gotta be?

Whaddya want from me?

What do I gotta prove?

No matter what I do

I’m not breaking for you

Tell me

What do I gotta give?

How do I gotta live?

When it’s not enough for you?

 

It’s not enough for you

It’s not enough for you

It’s not enough for you

When it’s not enough for you?

HEAVY

Written by Delta Goodrem & Martin Johnson

I fought a battle, I fought a war

I felt the rain on my face

Sometimes to find what you’re looking for

You’ve gotta learn from your worst mistakes

 

I made a wish on a satellite

That I mistook for a star

Guess when you build up to break down

You find out who you really are

 

How did it all get so heavy

I used to stand up so tall

There’s only so much I can carry

Before I fall

And they tell me: Girl you’re so lucky

 

You’ve got the world in your hands

But you know the world gets so heavy

You don’t understand

And that’s heavy

 

Just tell me what’s the intention

Is it to fall in love

I try to find a connection

Between how it is and how it was

I made a promise I couldn’t keep

Another story to tell

You swear to God that you know me

But I don’t, don’t even know myself

 

How did it all get so heavy

I used to stand up so tall

There’s only so much I can carry

Before I fall

And they tell me: Girl you’re so lucky

You’ve got the world in your hands

But you know the world gets so heavy

You don’t understand

And that’s heavy

 

Sometimes I lay awake in bed at night

I close my eyes and all I see

I see the dreams I used to dream about when I was younger

I wonder where I took the path of no return

I mighta lost my way a hundred times

But no I never ever lost the hunger

Oh and I know every cut

And every stitch and every scar

I know they’ve gotten me this far

They only made me tough, they made me stronger

But when it’s hard to breathe

And I just can’t get off the floor

I long for days when I was free

A life I lived so long before

 

It all got so heavy

I used to stand up so tall

There’s only so much I can carry

Before I fall

They tell me: Girl you’re so lucky

You’ve got the world in your hands

But you know the world gets so heavy

You don’t understand

And that’s heavy, heavy

 
Lyrics

ONLY HUMAN

I’ve given my heart and can’t get it back

I’ve had too many knives thrown at my back

Wouldn’t it be easy to throw it all away?

Wouldn’t it be easy to call it a day?

How do you love when you’re broken?

I’ve had enough, I’m only human

 

I can’t control what is out of my hands

But God knows sometimes I just don’t understand

So wouldn’t it be easy to just turn the page?

Wouldn’t it be better to throw the book away?

How do you love when you’re broken?

I’ve had enough, I’m only human

 

I’ll see in time that there’s a reason and a rhyme

It’s just a season with some lessons for your life

But I want to know why today got so much colder

And I want to know when the storm clouds will be over

I want to love when I’m broken

I want to love I’m only human

 

When I see the sun I am starting again

No matter the luck, it’s never

 
Lyrics

THE RIVER

Written by Delta Goodrem, David Hodges & Steven Solomon

(Preacher, take me down)

(Take me down the river, river)

 

It’s not what I had planned when I was walking in

I didn’t know what I’d see

Was stepping through the door, the clothes were on the floor

It was something like a bad dream

And in just a blink, before I could think

I didn’t know what happened

All I know is this

How could he commit a crime against our passion

The moment that I saw them kiss

I knew it had to end like this

Preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

I couldn’t help myself

When I saw him with her, with her

I took that loaded gun

Forgive what I have done

So preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

(River, river, river, river)

The writing’s on the wall, but it was his fault

How could anybody blame me

I swear to tell the truth, and if you only knew

I swear you’d do the same thing

If you give me one more chance

I’ll never shoot him down again

Preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

I couldn’t help myself

When I saw him with her, with her

I took that loaded gun

Forgive what I have done

So preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

(Take me down)

(Take me down)

(Take me down)

(River, river)

(Take me down)

Preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

I couldn’t help myself

When I saw him with her, with her

I took that loaded gun

Forgive what I have done

So preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

(River, river, river, river)

I took that loaded gun

Forgive what I have done

So preacher, take me down

Take me down the river, river

I'M NOT GIVING UP

Written by Delta Goodrem & Dave Bassett

There’s beauty in your sadness

There is love in every teardrop rolling down your face

There is heartbreak in the sunshine

There is healing in the storms behind the clouds you chase

 

Some days you feel the rain

That’s never gonna change but

 

If I could do it all again

Would I do it differently

Baby I made some choices

That left me feeling empty

But I know I got the strength inside

To always rise above

So I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

 

There’s power in the madness

There is presence in the truth of letting go

When the words that fill your head

Become the world you see around you, keep it close

 

It’s hard to see what’s meant to be

But something’s telling me that

 

If I could do it all again

Would I do it differently

Maybe I made some choices

That left me feeling heavy

But I know I got the strength inside

To always rise above

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

 

If I could do it all again

Would I do it differently

Maybe I made some choices

That left me feeling empty

But I know I got the strength inside

To always rise above

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

 

If I could do it all again

Would I do it differently

Maybe I made some choices

That left me feeling heavy

But I know I got the strength inside

To always rise above

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

I’m not giving up

ENCORE

Written by Delta Goodrem, Martin Johnson & Sam Hollander

Can you hear the sound of the silence

(Hush hush now)

The spotlight’s fading away

Like a serenade of the choir

(Drowning out)

The choir leaving the stage

 

Every time you took my breath away

(I lost something inside)

Every time you threw me a bouquet

(All the roses, they died)

So I think it’s time you walk away

(The show is closing tonight)

Yeah I think it’s time you walk away, way, way

 

And don’t came back for the encore, the encore

Don’t come back like you want more, you want more

Can’t you see that the curtain is closing

You can’t cut me open no more

Don’t come back for the applause, the applause

Cause I’m already long gone, I’m long gone

Can’t you see that the show is all over

Confetti all over the floor

But don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

 

Can you hear the beat of my heart go

(Boom boom boom)

But it’s not beating for you

Like a symphony in the dark

We lost our tune

Don’t you think our time is through

 

Every time you took my breath away

(I lost something inside)

Every time you threw me a bouquet

(All the roses, they died)

So I think it’s time you walk away

(The show is closing tonight)

Yeah I think it’s time you walk away, way, way

 

And don’t came back for the encore, the encore

Don’t come back like you want more, you want more

Can’t you see that the curtain is closed

And you can’t cut me open no more

(No more)

 

Don’t come back for the applause, the applause

Cause I’m already long gone, I’m long gone

Can’t you see that she show is all over

Confetti all over the floor

(The floor)

 

Don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

 

Can you hear the sound of the silence

Hush hush now

Hush hush now

 

And don’t came back for the encore, the encore

Don’t come back like you want more, you want more

Can’t you see that the curtain is closed

And you can’t cut me open no more

(No more)

 

Don’t come back for the applause, the applause

Cause I’m already long gone, I’m long gone

Can’t you see that she show is all over

Confetti all over the floor

(The floor)

 

Don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

Don’t come back for the encore

HOLD ON

Written by Delta Goodrem, Vince Pizzinga, Anthony Egizii & David Musumeci

(Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on)

 

Wrap me in everything that glows

Light it up, light it up, light it up

Feel my skin underneath my clothes

Light it up, light it up, light it up

When everyone said that I lost my mind

You’re the one that got me through those times

Everyone said that I lost my mind

Wrap me in everything that glows

Light it up, light it up, light it up

 

When everything was getting harder

You gave me your heart, you gave me your heart

When everything was getting louder

You gave me your heart, you gave me your heart

 

You wrap me up in stars when I’m feeling the darkness

You keep me on the ground when I light up the sky

Kiss me on my scars where you know I’ve been broken

When I was letting go you taught me how to fight

And hold on

(Hold on, hold on, hold on)

(You taught me how to fight)

And hold on

(Hold on, hold on, hold on)

(You taught me how to fight)

 

Take me in somewhere no one knows

With your love, with your love, with your love

I’ll never be, never be alone

With your love, with your love, with your love

When everyone said that I lost my mind

You’re the one that got me through those times

Everyone said that I lost my mind

Take me in somewhere no one knows

With your love, with your love, with your love

 

When everything was getting harder

You gave me your heart, you gave me your heart

When everything was getting louder

You gave me your heart, you gave me your heart

 

You wrap me up in stars when I’m feeling the darkness

You keep me on the ground when I light up the sky

You kiss me on my scars when you know I’ve been broken

When I was letting go you taught me how to fly

And hold on

(Hold on, hold on, hold on)

(You taught me how to fly)

And hold on

(Hold on, hold on, hold on)

(You taught me how to fly)

 

When everything was getting harder

You gave me your heart

When everything was getting louder

You gave me your heart

 

You wrap me up in stars when I’m feeling the darkness

You keep me on the ground when I light up the sky

You kiss me on my scars when you know I’ve been broken

When I was letting go you taught me how to fly

And hold on

(Hold on, hold on, hold on)

(You taught me how to fly)

And hold on

(Hold on, hold on, hold on)

(You taught me how to fly)

And hold on

(Hold on, hold on)

I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE

Written by Dan Hawkins, Justin Hawkins, Frankie Poullain & Ed Graham

Can’t explain all the feelings

That you’re making me feel

My heart’s in overdrive

And you’re behind the steering wheel

 

Touching you, touching me

Touching you, God you’re touching me

 

I believe in a thing called love

Just listen to the rhythm of my heart

There’s a chance we can make it now

We’ll be rocking ’til the sun goes down

I believe in a thing called love

 

I wanna kiss you

Every minute, every hour, every day

You got me in a spin

But everything is okay

Touching you, touching me

Touching you, God you’re touching me

 

I believe in a thing called love

Just listen to the rhythm of my heart

There’s a chance we could make it now

We’ll be rocking ’til the sun goes down

I believe in a thing called love

 

Touching you, touching me

Touching you, God you’re touching me

 

I believe in a thing called love

Just listen to the rhythm of my heart

There’s a chance we could make it now

We’ll be rocking ’til the sun goes down

I believe in a thing called love

MORSE CODE

Written by Delta Goodrem & Martin Johnson

Decode the sound of the beat in my heart
The sound of my body
Cause I’ve been feeling us falling apart
Yeah

 

I know the secret stuck under your skin
You don’t wanna hurt me
But if you want me then tear me apart
Yeah

 

Well you talk that talk
Like you want to talk
So we try to talk
And all I’m hearing is
Woah

 

When you walk that walk
I can barely talk
So we try to talk
And all I’m hearing is
Woah

 

I don’t know
It’s like we’re speaking in Morse Code
If you want me just tell me so
If you don’t then just let me go

 

Don’t leave me hanging cause
I can’t read your mind
I’m chasing every sign still
I don’t know
It’s like we’re speaking in Morse Code

 

All I’m hearing is…
All I’m hearing is…

 

I know you’re feeling the energy now
The same one I’m feeling
So can we get on this frequency somehow?

 

When you talk that talk
Like you want to talk
So we try to talk
And all I’m hearing is
Woah

 

I don’t know
It’s like we’re speaking in Morse Code
If you want me just tell me so
If you don’t then just let me go

 

Don’t leave me hanging cause
I can’t read your mind
I’m chasing every sign still
I don’t know
It’s like we’re speaking in Morse Code

 

All I’m hearing is…
All I’m hearing is…

 

Kiss me
Cause I hear you when we’re kissing
You say all the words I’m missing
You say all the things like (I need you)

 

Know me
Do you want to get to know me?
To be be my one and only
To say all the things like (I need you)

 

Kiss me
Cause I hear you when we’re kissing
You say all the words I’m missing
You say all the things like (I need you)

 

Know me
Do you want to get to know me?
To be be my one and only
To say all the things like…

 

I don’t know
It’s like we’re speaking in Morse Code
If you want me just tell me so
If you don’t then just let me go

 

Don’t leave me hanging cause
I can’t read your mind
I’m chasing every sign still
I don’t know
It’s like we’re speaking in Morse Code

 

All I’m hearing is…
All I’m hearing is…
