"Fragile" as written by and Goodrem/hannan/hannan....
Six thoughts at once I can't focus on one
Seven days a week but my life has just begun
So caught in emotion and I'm overcome
As I'm falling down I come undone

Sometimes I feel like I'm alone
Sometimes I feel like I'm not that strong
Sometimes I feel so frail so small
Sometimes I feel vulnerable
Sometimes I feel a little fragile
A little fragile

In six thousand years what will this mean
Words from the heart or a melody
So caught in emotion and I'm overcome
As I'm falling down I come undone

Sometimes I feel like I'm alone
Sometimes I feel like I'm not that strong
Sometimes I feel nothing at all
Sometimes I feel vulnerable
Sometimes I feel a little fragile
A little fragile

If people can see right through my eyes
Like an open door that I can't disguise
I won't be afraid from the tears I cry
I'll not run I'll not hide this is how I feel inside
A little fragile
A little fragile

Sometimes I feel like I'm alone
Sometimes I feel like I'm not that strong
Sometimes I feel so frail so small
Sometimes I feel vulnerable
Sometimes I feel a little fragile

    General CommentThis song showcases Delta's voice amazingly.. plus it's easy to relate to the words. Everyone feels that vulnerable and lonely sometimes!

    General CommentYep gotta agree 100% with you there, it is a very poignant film, probably especially for Delta at the time she wrote this. Just expresses her ability to be strong and weak at the same time.

    General CommentYeah I agree with you guys, at her concert in Adelaide she said that everyone can relate to being this fragile at one point in their lives. I love this song, it hits such a personal note!!!!

    General CommentHeartbreak is the permanence of unresolved pain. The lyrics "Sometimes..." is an understatement of the dread the heart endures. Theres no beginning, no end, just a constant feeling of defeat. It always wins. The hopelessness and anguish captured in her voice breaks my heart...so much pain with no where to go...

    General CommentThis song, IMO, is just basically singing about that terrible feeling of fragility and vulnerability you feel after or during a tough event in your life.

    General CommentI know this song for a long time now and I kinda agree with Dark Pooyan. Though to me this song is also more about basic high sensitivity. As I am HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) myself the feelings this song bring up are those of constantly having to meet up with the great big world outside, and having to deal with all the feelings of everyone in that world around you. The lines 'Six thoughts at once, I can't focus on one' and 'So caught in emotion that I'm overcome' says pretty much everything really.

    In six thousand years, now what will this mean...
    Words from the heart, or a melody..

    No matter how many times I listen to this, it always gives me glazy eyes. One of the best songs ever made imo. Simple, but brilliant. ^.^
