The lyrics to ‘Dear Life’ have a sense of clarity and truth and a depth that we have come to know of Delta. The song is an open letter to life asking the questions we all often ask and features Delta’s signature soaring vocals delivered with conviction that hits the listener firmly in the heart.
“’Dear Life’ was a lightning bolt song moment – the song came very quickly and took on a life of its own. I felt so connected to it straight away it felt like one of those songs you channel. The song has a positive message, with clarity in its conversation with the listener about things you learn in life, with the chorus raising the questions you ask along the way. I really hear this song as something everyone can relate too and reflect about their own life when they listen.” Delta Goodrem
‘Dear Life’ was written by Delta with Australian co-writers /producers DNA during her hugely successful run in CATS where Goodrem starred as Grizabella.
