I am in one of those dreams
Where you just keep on falling
Noone hears you calling

All that you saw was my smile
But it's been dark for awhile
And the days have gone cold
No more sleep for my soul
Well thats what I've been told

Did you think that things would be ok?
That my life could keep going on this way?

When I cried, when I shouted and I screamed and I yelled
And I was mad and I was angry
How come no one could tell?
Say why didn't you listen to me?
Was it really that hard to see?
Nobody listened

One day I found the creature asleep
I had a secret to keep
And now the whole world knows

I'm fighting now go
And I'll be on show
I'm protected did you know
From the folks in the blue

Did you think that things would be ok?
That my life could keep going on this way?

When I cried and I shouted and I screamed and I yelled
And I was mad and I was angry
How come noone could tell?
I said why didn't you listen to me?
Was it really that hard to see?
Nobody listened
Nobody listened

Invader took the breath from me
Healer, the angel did I see

All that you saw was my smile
But it's been dark for a while
And the days have gone cold

When I cried and I shouted and I screamed and I yelled
And I was mad and I was angry
How come noone could tell?
I said why didn't you listen to me?
Was it really that hard to see?
Nobody listened
Nobody listened

And then I cried and I shouted and I screamed and I yelled
And I was mad and I was angry
How come noone could tell?
Say why didn't you listen to me?
Was it really that hard to see?
Nobody listened
Nobody listened

Invader took the breath from me
Healer, the angel did I see

Invader took my breath away
Healer, the angel did I see

It's not too far to go now
Like a train off the rails here
'Cause nobody listened.
Nobody listened (nobody listened)

But they're listening now...

    General Commenti think that its a hidden track for a reason.i think its a song thats about the true delta. About her real emotions, fears and dreams. But i think if the average detla fan heard it they would be surpirsed as its so different and so much more revealing.

    General CommentThis is one of the best emotive songs ever. It's about anyone's anger, anything at all that really makes you angsty. This is all about Delta's anger at negative press, I think, when they were saying that she was milking her cancer for everything it was worth. It's almost surprising to hear, especially after 'You Are My Rock,' but in all one of my very favorite songs.

    General CommentI think this song was about how Nobody Listened to Delta, how the press where saying it was just some stupid publicity stunt. I love it though, it really makes me feel better after listening to it. It showcases the darker side of Delta - all her other songs were 'full of dreams' - then after her cancer it was 'her big dose of reality.

    But they're listening now

    I love that bit at the end.

    General Commenti think its delta having a go at the media (which they deserve) for how they wont actually listen to what u have to say and they only twist ur words etc.

    General Commentthis is a very dark song about what she was going through with her cancer and the media doubting her... i especially like the "invader took the breath from me" bit.

    General CommentYeah. The 'Invader took the breath from me' would be about the cancer.

    General CommentSorry. should have written this before. But what does she mean: 'I had a secret to keep. now the whole world knows'

    General CommentI think this song is about a dark time in Delta's life where she needed to turn to someone that cared about her just to talk to but she didn't have anyone and shes completely breaking in the inside

    General CommentAngelicbabe0907: I think the secret was the cancer... but that's just an educated guess.

    This is Delta in one of her "teenage angst" moods. 'My life sucks (though the cancer was testimony to that lol), nobody understands me, nobody cares, nobody is listening, I'm screaming but no one can hear, I'm smiling but I don't mean it etc.'

    But I like this song. It perfectly encapsulates the mindspace of someone in one of those angsty moods. The melody suits the mood well too, frustrated and fragile yet deliberate and angry and it builds up and even gives an opportunity to scream.

    I like that it's a hidden track. I think it's fitting given that this is a hidden side to Delta.

    General CommentThis was definitely hidden for a reason- like some aforementioned, it is about Delta's true feelings that she didn't want others to see. She wants to be perceived as strong for her fans, friends and family.

    This song is a conglomeration of all the negatives she felt about getting cancer- "why me?" "what did I do to deserve this?" kind of thing. Basically a very angsty self pitty.
