"Extraordinary Day" as written by and Vince/goodrem Pizzinga....
Change, like secrets in the wind
I hear the whispers madame butterfly
Spread your precious wings I watch you fly away

I know, I can't change fate of that
July the 8th and it was never the same
I know, this stage is frightening
But its oh so enlightening is this how karma goes

Who would have thought when chance came
Calling that this would be my defining story and who
Could have guessed on my life's journey
I could find my way through this extraordinary day

Nothing is isolated

I know, I can't change fate of that
July the 8th and it was never the same
I know, this stage is frightening
But its oh so enlightening is this how karma goes

Extraordinary day
This would be my defining story
And who could have guessed on my life's journey
I could find my way through this Extraordinary day

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

    “was the day I got diagnosed, before anyone else knew, July 8th, the day I got told that the word cancer was into my life and this song is such an important song on the album as well, it’s such, it’s such, builds the colour of it because I felts that I have to, I have to be honest, I’ve got the tracks like a little too late which are really upbeat and I’m singing and everything but you know what, I didn’t have the best year, I didn’t enjoy it and frankly this day was an extraordinary day of my life so I wrote about it, extraordinary day, July 8.”

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and haunting. It is clearly about the day (July 8th) that she was diagnosed with cancer. It is "darker" than the other songs on the album, which suits the theme of the song - it is not written about happiness.
