"Deep Deep Down" as written by and Lanny Cordola Chuck Wright....
You were coming down, I saw the look, a beggar's frown you hit the floor like a gun, words on your tongue
Would not make a sound
Too late to think about a new tomorrow,
All of mother's help has gone away


[Chorus]
Crash through the world you let it slip, trying to explain it all away
But that deep dark secret just won't go away
Now after all these years still there are people and places you fear echoes inside of a girl, who lost herself, I wish you were here
The past shot like a bullet full of sorrow
Memories they don't ever seem to fade
Crash through the world you let it slip, trying to explain it all away
But that deep dark secret just won't go away


[Solo]

Time to think about a new tomorrow, silence gets you through another day
Crash through the world you let it slip trying to explain it all away
But that deep dark secret just won't go away,
Oh no yeh that deep dark secret just won't go away, hey hey that deep dark secret just won't go away
Go away

    General CommentAdd first I thought this was about a break-up, but the more I think about, I think this song is actually about killing his girlfriend. Which makes for an awesome song.

    General CommentYes it is about killing his girlfriend I was trying to find out if it was based on true events or an interview with a convicted killer or something but Here's correct lyrics:
    Author: Dr. Frank
    So this is goodbye more or less
    And things have changed a lot I guess
    In such a mess and so out of hand
    Though I think it went pretty much as you planned

    It was so hazy till my eyes had cleared
    Now I can see better but it still looks weird
    Is that still you lying there?
    Why can't I find you anywhere?

    I still don't understand this episode
    Or why you led us down that road
    But I think you knew where it would lead
    And how something would come over me

    I still don't know just what it was
    I guess nobody ever really does
    Know why they do the things they do
    Why did I have to follow you?

    Deep deep down
    Where it isn't safe to be
    'Cause I beat you there
    And now they're comin' after me

    You always were an angel in my eyes
    And now more than ever the term applies
    The eyes still see what the soul believes
    And you look so pretty underneath the leaves

    And though we part forever now
    I feel you'll be with me somehow
    I believe in God and you know
    You're still my angel and I love you so

    Deep deep down
    Pretty as the scenery
    You're lying under it
    But I feel you watching over me

    So now I've got to tear myself away
    'Cause they'll just find me if I stay
    They wouldn't understand what we'd been through
    Or how I did it all for you

    All to show you how I cared
    It was the last thing we ever shared
    Together and I'll cherish the memory
    And carry a piece of you with me

    Deep deep down
    Where I'm not supposed to be
    'Cause I buried you there
    And now they're comin' after me

    Deep deep down
    Deep deep down
    'Cause I buried you there
    And now they're comin' after me
