"Bare Hands" as written by Carl Bjorsell, Carl Anthony Falk and Sharon Vaughn....
I've got a question on my mind
You can answer in your time
Just don't freeze like a deer in the headlights

Sometimes it's the risk of getting hurt
That's beautiful and worse,
Is being numb feeling nothing at all

A little pain lets you know your alive
We gotta live and love not just survive

Hearts that don't love can't be broken
A dream stays a dream if not woken
If you never bleed then you won't understand
Come pick me red roses with your bare hands

I'm standing right in front of you
But you don't know what to do
It's the fear of thorns that keeps you out of the garden

Be brave, be the fool, you've never been
'cause I'll be here to kiss you skin
Melt me on the path where love could begin

Hearts that don't love can't be broken
A dream stays a dream if not woken
If you never bleed then you won't understand
Come pick me red roses with your bare hands

Make me feel I'm worth it
Don't love me with gloves on
Pick me roses roses with your bare hands
Make me feel I'm worth the scratches

Hearts that don't love can't be broken
A dream stays a dream if not woken
If you never bleed then you won't understand
Come pick me red roses with your bare hands

A little pain lets you know you're alive
We gotta live and love not just survive

    General CommentOne of my favourites off her new album. It's about taking a risk in life and love, and being a fool for the person you love.

    General CommentIt's definately personal. Between her and her fiance Brian. 'Make me feel I'm worth the scratches' to me sounds like all the bad press they got!

    General CommentThe entire album seems to be more sexually charged... and a tad reminiscent of another artist... Celine anyone?


    This song is self explanitary. Cept i don't drag it as a literal meaning reflection of stuff between her and brian.

    On a light hearted note, don't love me with gloves on? Will Delta soon be pregnant then? lol

    General Commentit is definately my favourite song on the album
    the rose garden metaphor is really pretty

    "Don’t love me with gloves on
    Pick me roses with your bare hands
    Make me feel I’m worth the scratches"

    "It’s the fear of thorns keeps you out of the garden...Meet me on the path where love could begin"

    as a pop song the lyrics are lush and flawless and the electronic element makes it different from a lot of delta's others

    quite straight forward in meaning.. 'i'm here, don't be scared, just love me' or something along the lines of that.
