This page contains lyrics from the album
"Child Of The Universe" by Delta Goodrem, which was released in 2012 and consists of 15 songs.
You fall asleep with the damage in the room
And I canít escape the stranger living under your skin.
Whoís this I see?
Youíre not the man that fell in love with me.
I canít pretend anymore,
Itís tragic, like when a Shakespeare play comes to an end.
Itís intoxicating me.
So go ahead, take her to your bed,
I woke up in our bed, but you werenít there
Some dreams start out as dreams and turn into nightmares.
Feel it screaming your name,
But itís always the same
And I canít shut my mouth
And hope youíll love me.
I, Iíve been in this too long,
But I know that itís wrong to be here
Dancing With A Broken Heart
Ahhhhh (repeat x 10)
I thought I was strong
Thought I was brave
Thought I was bold
But that's when you broke my heart
And I felt torn
Yeah, my heart felt like a burnt marshmellow
Hunters And The Wolves
I fought for you
I went to war in a battle of two
And in many years in solitary
Iím captured by the enemy
I tried, I tried, everything just to survive
Iím living the life of someone else who wouldnít even save himself
What did I know
I had my eyes closed for what it seemed like an eternity
Been living my life in commotion
Like all the colors, bruised and broken
Life has a lot of smoke and mirrors
Seven years without love made it clearer
I woke up running with a pain in my heart
Canít get there fast enough, yeah, fast enough
No matter what I do, I gotta get to you
Falling deeper in love, yeah, deeper in love
You have got my hypnotized
I'm Not Ready
I am broken
There's a stranger on the phone
From seven years ago
You tell me baby don't you cry anymore
But I know
I am shaking
Not a breath left to breathe
All this sadness, so cold
That I can't speak
I Lost All My Love 4 You
When you walked into my life with your muddy shoes on
And your baggage claim ticket one night.
I thought itíd be ok, Ďcause there was something about you
That made me feel somehow safe.
I gave too much to you, you took it all away,
And by now I had no more to give.
So donít try to come back and break me down,
I am standing so much stronger now.
Pushed out from the standing start, forced to run
I was minding my own heart, before the gun
I'm the silence in the noise that's trying to break through
Say it's only for the best so I can breathe
Phoenix buried in the mess inside of me
I don't understand the hurt why you put it on me
So you be who you wanna be and I'll be me
Thereís a hand over my mouth,
So I canít speak, speak to you.
Iím tied, tied up in chains,
And what remains is the silence.
I feel the night around my days
As if the cold is here to stay.
There are hands over my eyes
So I canít see what youíre trying to do to me.
Safe To Believe
She found a secret hiding behind a closed door
No strength to believe it, like a flame that can burn in a moment.
A heart grieved with sadness, I feel that was hard to let go.
Then she found an angel, the love that she never know.
So lay with me, Iíve been so scared to breathe.
You make it safe to believe in all that I am.
Take my hand, love me for who I am,
Teach me to dream again, itís all that I need
You make it safe to believe.
The Speed Of Life
How many times can you say that it's over?
How many ways can you say that I love you forever more?
How many times can you make love with your lover?
How many lives and many lies can we live with ourselves?
How many times will you change your religion?
And how many gods do you ask for the answers that grow when you're sad?
What has to break before you make a decision?
ĎCause you never know which way to go, you just get off the bus and go home.
This is the home where my mother told me anything can happen
These are the pages where I kept my secrets underneath our bed
In a heart shaped necklace that my father bought me
Then there's the park bench where I gave my first kiss away
This is the bedroom that I painted purple when I first left home
There is the journey that my car would take me to my days at work
And the mountain I climbed after I fought the rain
Then there's the goodbye that I gave my best friend for the very last time
War On Love
So I stand on this hill with, my flag held high.
With the will to survive, bullets flying by.
Broken hearts scattered on this battlefield,
Holding out on to something real.
I won't give in, I won't give up,
Fight the hope in this war on love.
All the dust has settled,
I can finally see.
Iím crawling from the wreckage
When My Stars Come Out
Hey! When you gonna pull the trigger
Iím up and running like a river,
Yeah, Iím already gone.
Just when you think you know who I am,
If you think Iím gonna keep on crying,
Yeah, Iím already done.
I smile when itís the hardest time to smile,
I climb when itís the highest mountain to climb.
Wish You Were Here
I've been knock, knock, knocking at the thought of your door
But you're not, not, not here anymore
I ring, ring, ring you're every thought in my head
But I can't get through, the connection is dead
I want, want to tell you about the news today
But you wouldn't believe me, you'd laugh it away
There's a ghost standing at the foot of my bed
And it's you, it's you, it's you, it was you
