  • Lyrics
  • Guitarist Mark Sheehan explained the song's meaning to The Independent:

    "I suppose it's that moment when you've been searching for someone all your life that is going to deliver the upmost love to you, and give you that moment. You can also expel that all from yourself because everyone is that little bit frustrated regardless whether they know it or not, sometimes until they find the person to release it all."
  • Oscar Görres (Cher Lloyd's "I Wish," Tori Kelly's "Unbreakable Smile," DNCE's "Be Mean") produced this electro-squiggling anthem. Sheehan said:

    "Deliverance is one of those songs, and we did it such a dark way; the guitars and stuff we pitched them down so they have a real dark feeling. Again, the beat is awesome - shout out to Oscar Perez for the beat."
