Delta Goodrem Lyrics

Almost Here

words & music by Brian McFadden, Paul Barry, Mark Taylor

Brian

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

Delta

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 your only almost here

Brian

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

both

Bruised and battered by your words
Dazed and shattered now it hurts
Haven't I always loved you

Delta

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 your 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 your 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
