LISTEN: Delta Goodrem New Song 'Wish You Were Here'

12 October 2012

Delta Goodrem’s new song ‘Wish You Were Here’ is available to purchase today – and we have it on take40.com for you to listen to!

This is an amazing, heartfelt song, and shows Delta at her most vulnerable.

It is a tribute to one of Delta’s dearest lifelong friends, Liam, who lost his life in an accident in 2009.

Of the emotional track, Delta revealed “I tried a million different ways to write this song… I had to have a song about this moment in my life of losing one of my best friends. Then on his actual birthday, it was two years later, I said I’m not leaving this day without having THE song about it."

"You can try a million ways, I wrote probably 20 songs about it, and then on his actual birthday, I wrote this song."

Win a copy of Guy Sebastian's new album 'Armageddon'!

Delta has admitted she sometimes finds ‘Wish You Were Here’ almost too emotional to sing, although at the same time she also feels it’s one of her best songs ever.

This is the third single to be lifted from Delta’s new album, ‘Child Of The Universe,’ set for release on October 26.

Check out the new song below – what do you think?



Delta Goodrem 'Wish You Were Here' Lyrics: 



I've been knock, knock, knocking at the thought of your door 



But you're not, not, not here anymore 


I ring, ring, ring you’re every thought in my head 


But I can't get through, the connection is dead 




I want, want to tell you about the news today 


But you wouldn't believe me, you’d laugh it away 


There's a ghost standing at the foot of my bed 


And it's you, it's you, it's you, it was you 




They told me who was in trouble 


I couldn't breathe on the other side of the world 


And there was nothing I could do to help you 


And it's true today it'd be your birthday 


It would've been your 27th year 


And I miss you in the earth's atmosphere 


I wish you were here 




I go back, back, back at every memory you left 


But the clock ticks over every minute we shared 


On my knees begging for it not to be true 


But it was you, it was you, it was you, it was you 




They told me who was in trouble 


I couldn't breathe on the other side of the world 


And there was nothing I could do to help you 


And it's true today it'd be your birthday 


It would've been your 27th year 


And I miss you in the earth's atmosphere 


I wish you were here 




Instead of just in my dreams and in my imagination 


Confusing me completely from another dimension 


Can you see the beauty from a new beginning somewhere 


Because I feel like I won't repair with time 




They told me who was in trouble 


I couldn't breathe on the other side of the world 


And there was nothing I could do to help you 


And it's true today it'd be your birthday 


It would've been your 27th year 


And I miss you in the earth's atmosphere 


I wish you were here
