Did I hear you right
'Cause I thought you said
Let's think it over

You have been my life
And I never planned
Growing old without you

Shadows bleeding through the light
Where a love once shined so bright
Came without a reason

Don't let go on us tonight
Love's not always black and white
Well, haven't I always loved you?

But when I need you
You're almost here
And I know that's not enough

But when I'm with you
I'm close to tears
'Cause you're only almost here

I would change the world
If I had a chance
Oh, won't you let me

Treat me like a child
Throw your arms around me
Please protect me

Bruised and battered by your words
Dazed and shattered how it hurts
Oh, haven't I always loved you

But when I need you
You're almost here
And I know that's not enough

And when I'm with you
I'm close to tears
'Cause you're only almost here

Bruised and battered by your words
Dazed and shattered now it hurts
Haven't I always loved you

But when I need you
You're almost here
(Well, I never knew how far behind I'd left you)

And when I hold you
You're almost here
(Well, I'm sorry that I took our love for granted)

And now I'm with you
I'm close to tears
'Cause I know I'm almost here
Only almost here

    General CommentThis song is definitely my favourite off Mistaken Identity (her 2nd album). I believe it is about needing something or someone, but they are just out of your reach. Maybe a person who you're in love with, and they are already taken, or about loving someone and they don't know.

    Overall, I love it so much...

    General CommentThis song is about being in a relationship in which you are much more invested in than your partner they only always seem 'almost here'. Delta has told Brian that she needs to rethink the relationship, and Brian can't understand that because he asks 'haven't I always love you?' At the end of the song Brian comes to realize that he has indeed taken Delta's love for granted and that he was only 'almost here.'

    (used 'Delta' and 'Brian' to make it less confusing to explain; The female & male voice obviously, not in reality.)

    General CommentBrian wrote this towards the end of his marriage to Kerry, and after hearing Delta on the radio asked her to sing it with him as a duet. She was also having troubles in her relationship at the time and could relate to the lyrics.
    So it seems to be about a relationship that Brian (in the song) had somewhat taken for granted, and now realising how unhappy his partner is (about him being emotionally unavailable perhaps?), he'd do anything for her to stay with him.
