"In This Life" as written by Stuart Crichton, Delta Goodrem, Brian Mcfadden and Tommy James....
I was nurtured
I was sheltered,
I was curious and young.
I was searchin' for that something,
Tryin' to find it on the run.
Oh and just when I stopped lookin',
I saw just how far I'd come.
In this life
In this life

You give me love,
You give me light,
Show me everythings been happenin',
I've opened up my eyes,
I'm followin'
3 steps fight an honest fight, (oh)
2 hearts, they can start a fire, (yeah yeah)
1 love is all I need in this life (oh)

Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah
In this life

I have faltered
I have stumbled,
I have found my feet again.
I've been angry,
And I've been shaken,
Found a new place to begin.
And my persistence to make a difference,
Has led me safe into your hands.
In this life
In this life

You give me love,
You give me light,
Show me everythings been happenin',
I've opened up my eyes,
I'm followin'
3 steps fight an honest fight, (oh)
2 hearts, they can start a fire, (yeah yeah)
1 love is all I need in this life (oh)


In this life
Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah

I was put here for a reason,
I was born into this world.
And I'm living, and I'm believing
That I was meant to be your girl

In this life
In this life

You give me love,
You give me light,
Show me everythings been happenin',
I've opened up my eyes,
I'm followin'
3 steps fight an honest fight, (oh)
2 hearts, they can start a fire, (yeah yeah)
1 love is all I need in this life (oh)

3 steps fight an honest fight (oh)
2 hearts, they can start a fire (yeah yeah)
1 love is all I need
In this life (oh)

Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah
In this life
Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah
In this life

In this life
Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah

    General CommentI think this is a great song! It's a grown up song, about how life changes you. Delta's new image is great - She's just changed in life, and so her image has changed with that, There's nothing wrong with that.

    General CommentI was soooo happy to hear that delta was putting out a new song and album.. but when i heard this song i was really dissapointed.. i was hoping that she wouldnt change her image..but she did!
    now shes a pop singer and her songs are all about love...

    General CommentYeah i agree, amandalittle... she's trying to shed her conservative image by wearing skimpy clothes and her fans have complained she doesn't even sing In This Life live even though the single's out... all she talks about is tabloid junk. And I can't stand who she's with.. and he's writing 90% of her songs now.

    The bside Take Me Home isn't great either... it's a "dance" song, does not fit her at all. She claimed to hate that type of music when Sony tried to make her do it in 2001 (Here I Am original on the I Don't Care single was dance). Guess that isn't so true huh?

    Also, lyrically In This Life and Take Me Home aren't great.

    Too bad.

    General Commentyeh i no aye pinkbutterfly..
    apparently she wrote this is not me to say that when she sang i dont care.. it was not her and her producers or something were trying to change her.
    i think shes going to loose alot of fans with her new image

    General CommentI think this song has some amazing lyrics

    i'm not a huge delta fan so i dont really notice or care that she's changed her image, but i like this song and i think the point of this site is to point out the meaning in songs not to point out what you dislike about the artist

    General Commentmetoyou - it's our opinion and her image goes along with everything she does, so if we want to discuss it we will. Besides if you'd read what I wrote, I said the lyrics were weak to the song. That's song discussion.

    And you aren't a Delta fan anyway so what does it matter to you?

    Amanda- yeah, exactly... apparently Delta is whatever her record label feels like she should be. :( Image in 2001 was very Britney Spears. Her song What Kind Of Girl sounds sooo much like Britney! Yikes. If she'd been successful with I Don't Care who knows what her music would sound like now?

    Besides, she won't sing In This Life on TV shows. She uses the media talking about her new image to promote her album!! Everyone noticed that, even her fanboard.

    General Commentyeh i have noticed that she hasnt sang on tv
    i wish i could meet her and get her to go back to the way she used to be. Personally i think she had alot more fans then than she does now.

    Just wondering.. did you read the interview in the cosmopoliton?..
    and another thing.. with all the interviews on the radio she has answered different things..for the same questions.. what does that have to say about her image

    General CommentAmandalittle and Pinkbutterfly I completely agree with you. When I saw her I was like: 'What? That's not Delta!'. The songs aren't great. THe lyrics are bad. And I don't know if it's Brian's influence on her, or if she's just become a total media whore getting plastic surgery (cheek implants) to help promote her sexuality. She's lost me as a fan.

    And to discuss the song meaning, Well it's pretty obvious what it's about in my opinion. I just wish she was like she used to be.
