"Out of the blue" as written by Mindi Beth Abair and Matthew W. Hager....
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 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 running through me
Nobody can renew me like you.
Out of the blue
Can this be true!

Family and friends they were my life,
I wasn't one for butterflies
But you gave me love that I can't disguise.
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.

Family and friends they were my life,
I wasn't one for butterflies,
But you gave me love that I can't disguise.
There will be times when we're apart,
I want you to know you're in my heart,
Growing into a beautiful garden.

Out of the blue,
There I met you,
I can't believe that this happened so soon.
There's just no way,
That I can fight these emotions,
Your energy running through me.

(out of the blue)
(there I met you)
(showed me a life I can't see without you)

(out of the blue)
(there I met you)
(showed me a life I can't see without you)

There will be times when we're apart,
I want you to know you're in my heart,
Growing into a beautiful garden.

    General CommentI agree anti magnet, i may be wrong but i think deltas battle against cancer inspired this song, maybe how she found religion/god to help her through? ("showed me a life i cant see without you"/"i had my faith and trust")
    It could also be about finding love when you least expect it, but woteva its a gr8 song!

    General Commentthe song is primarily about her finding love during a time when she thought it wasnt possible. She was going through a struggle with cancer, and feeling like crap, and then someone comes in who turns it all around and helps her through. Awwww....

    General CommentI have my own theory about the line "I wasn't one for butterflies", is she attracted to women? I have no idea if this is true but she mentions butterflies so many times in her songs, and are they supposed to be a symbol for woman? like butterfly=woman? later in "extraordinary day" the line "madame butterfly" another indication of the symbolism. is it possible that the love she has found is with a woman? again its just a theory lol.

    General CommentIn this song I think that when she says butterflies she's reffering to either:
    Butterflies and their beauty, comparing htem to the beauty she saw in Mark Phillipousis or
    Butterflies, as in, getting butterlfies in your stomach from meeting someone you either like or love.
    But this song is widely acknowledged as being about Mark and even though Deltas music isn't really my thing, I was annoyed when he cheated on her with Paris Hilton.
    It's an okay song but it's really starting to get on my nerves.

    General CommentTaken from Delta’s track by track commentary on bonus DVD, Delta Goodrem – Mistaken Identity, Sony Music (Australia), 2004.


    “We did a really big production because … I wanted to go big and it’s got trumpets in it and it’s got a huge chorus but I just um I still feel it’s a really relatable track about someone coming into your life and bringing you out of the blue into a special place”

    It is widely known that this song is about Delta’s relationship with Mark Philippousis.

    General CommentI'm sure Delta's kicking herself now that the relationship is over and everyone knows it's about mark! Nice song though...

    General Commenti've been listening to this song over and over in the last few days.. a truly great song, quite easy to understand as well.. i don't really care who she wrote it for, it's a beautiful song and i hope that the things described will someday happen to me :)

    General Commentit's about mark philippousis, a pity he betrayed her. she just battled cancer and she found a new man.. she was lost without love in her life and i guess mark was great in supporting her all the way and she never thought it'd happen this way. this was a song dedicated to him and letting him know how much she loved & appreciated everything that he did while he was by her side. *tear*
