Or like YWOBMH when she sang the same verse all the time! Sorry not related to
Topic....

So I stand on this hill
With my flag held high
With the will to survive
Bullets flying by
Broken hears scattered on this battlefield
Holding out for something real
I won't give up
I won't give in
I fight for hope in this
WAR ON LOVE

Child of the Universe corrections:

In this world
If it’s the only thing I’ve ever learned
Is that everything you love can hurt
And the only thing you are is a child of the universe

In this world
If it’s the only thing I’ve ever learned
Is that everything love can hurt
And for everything my freedom's worth
I’ll be a child of the universe

Thing is she changes the lyrics all the time. Like when I'm Not Ready she'll stuff up or just change forever and together.....Oh well what ever floats her boat. It's her songs


I love the fact her songs are always open to interpretation, to give a different feel or meaning

All of the lyrics sound good. I think this will be Delta's best album :)

I thought it was "Waiting for the weather" instead of "Waiting for forever" a few times in the song. I can't remember which parts.


I'm probably wrong. It would be hard to tell because it wouldn't sound much different.

It's amazing what you hear. I hear things and they don't make sense. Her diction needs improving. Just have to find logic to find a meaning from the lyrics. Lyrics do have to make sense.....well with most artists.

Hear that.
I heard First and Last and Kiss and Touch and Under My Bed and stuff in Touch, but I just ignored them cuz it didn't sound right in the song I thought she was singing. Now shit makes a whole lotta sense, but THEN, it was hell!

"All I got is this heart that I am willing to lose, I know in this life - I give it everything."

"Found a girl inside of me that I've been missing for so long, told her I that I'd never leave."

"Just when I stopped looking I saw just how far I'd come - in this life."

"One day, we won't exist, and all the hurt will turn to dust

It is easier to shut down than to open up to trust."

Waiting For Forever

A shadow box in with a trick of light
A day that disappears into the night
Wings of gold that shattered into dust
So understand what's in your hands is not enough

Why don't you stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come
Why don't you stop
Waiting for forever
Living like it's not begun
Cause the now
The now is the only time that matters
Come on stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come

Forever might never come

The moment we decide to let it go
The future is the one without control
Illusions of what love's supposed to be
Can pull you in and feed the insecurity

Why don't you stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come
Why don't you stop
Waiting for forever
Living like it's not begun
Cause the now
The now is the only time that matters
Come on stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come

Forever might never come

You want it all, everything - you want it for free
And If you want to be everything you said you'd be

Why don't you stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come
Why don't you stop
Waiting for forever
Living like it's not begun

Waiting for forever
Forever might never come
Why don't you stop
Waiting for forever
Living like it's not begun
Cause the now
The now is the only time that matters
Come on stop
Waiting for forever
Forever might never come

Forever might never come

:) :) :)

I still don't understand the first line and it's been bugging me. What's "a shadow box in"? I think it could be "shadow boxing" but then I'm not sure if that's a real phrase and it also doesn't make sense. Ok I just Wikipedia-ed it and 'shadowboxing' is a sport... Official lyrics to Delta's b-sides should be released too :) Her lyrics are so important to the song.

Pretty positive is the future has the control!

So I stand on this hill
With my flag held high
With the will to survive
Bullets flying by
Broken hears scattered on this battlefield

I won't give up

I think it's "a shadow boxing with a trick of light", so basically there is a shadow fighting (boxing) to cover up a glimmer of light, like evil fighting against good? That's how I understood it anyway :)

X3Fig - I don't know if you know this but a shadow box is a display case. This case is used to display and protect objects. I love this lyric. I took "A shadow-box... trick of light..." meaning that she felt protected at one moment and then all of a sudden a light went into that display box and it was no longer something that could be protected.

I just wanna say a WOOT for The Elements being over and now getting 4 songs of pure AMAZINGGGG lyrical perfectionnnnnnnn!
WFF, WUWH, TOUCH, and Dancing are all AMAZING songs lyrically, and SOT is a good pop song too, it's not bad at what it does.

The moment we decide to let it go
The future is the one with our control
Illusions of what love's supposed to be
Can pull you in and feed the insecurity

The future is the one We Now control

I had trouble understanding the first line (and a few others) in the WFF lyrics.. Never thought of the shadow box as the display case!!

That's EXACTLY what I thought. ;)

Pretty sure it's A shadow box and with a trick of light, a day that disappears into the night.
