"Deep Inside of You" as written by and Stephan Jenkins....
When we met light was shed
Thoughts free flow you said you've got something
Deep inside of you
A wind chime voice sound, sway of your hips round rings true
Echo's deep inside of you
These secret garden beams changed my life so it seems
Fall breeze blows outside, i don't bring stride
My thoughts are warm, and they go deep inside of you
Oh yeah
And I never felt alone
Alright, alone...alone
Till I met you
Friends say I've changed
I don't listen cause I live to be
Deep inside of you
Slide of her dress, shouts in darkness
I'm so alive I'm
Deep inside of you
You said boy make girl feel good
But still...deep inside...STILL!
I've never felt alone
Till I met you
I'm alright on my own
Till I met you
And I'd know what to do if I just knew what's coming
I would change myself if I could
I'd walk with my own people if I could find them,
And I would say that I'm sorry to you,
I'm sorry to you, but I don't want to call you,
But then I want to call you cause I don't want to crush you,
But I feel like crushing you and it's true
I took for granted you were with me,
I breath by your looks and you look right through me
But we were broken and didn't know it
But we were broken and didn't know it
But we were broken and didn't know it
But we were broken and didn't know it
Right...oh, what's right?
Something's gone you withdraw and I'm not strong like before I was
Deep inside of you
I can go nowhere I burn candles and stare at a ghost
Deep inside of you
And some great need in me, starts to bled
I've lost my self there's nothing left, it's all gone
Deep inside of you
Deep inside of you

    General CommentThough I realized that (based on the lyrics) the song is about a relationship with a girl, for me it also resonates about friendships.

    Some people take the lines ...

    "I never felt alone
    ‘til I met you
    I’m alright on my own
    And then I met you"

    ... to mean the person themselves actually made them feel alone.
    The lyrics refer to pre-relationship, and relationship itself, then Implies the post-relationship. I don't take it as saying the actual relationship make the person lonely but, having had it then loosing it. Basically they need them now, and possibly they need others as well, when before they didn't have anyone so they didn't know what they were missing. In a way contradicting the concept of "Better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all"

    The reason I take the song as referring to not just one relationship but general friendships as well, were from the lines ...

    "I would change myself if I could
    I would walk with my people if I could find ‘em"

    ... These are strong lyrics for someone who has few (if any) friendships and they are desperately frustrated because they can't find people like them, so instead they will change anything (including themselves) to fit in, and get back what relationships they had and ruined and lost. Wanting to apologize but worried that would just push them further away.

    So relationships are a drug, they didn't need it before, but once they had it they needed it and without it ...

    "Somethin’s gone
    You withdraw
    And I’m not strong like before"

    General CommentThis is one of the most poetic, sexual, beautiful songs. Just listen to the lyrics--it's all about love, well, maybe lust. All the relatioship crap. You know, you love 'em, you hate 'em. Deep inside not only refers to sex but to his feelings that are also deep inside of her. I know this sounds crazy but it's hard to explain. I love this song. I'd love to persoanlly ask Stephen Jenkins, "So, just what exactly is this song about?"

    General CommentI've been there, done that!! The song is about the end of a relationship, the memories of it. The wanting to call, when you know you shouldn't. The left over desire, the feelings of guilt and sorrow, the feelings of change in your life due to a deep in love relationship. What a great song! This song is permanently dedicated to someone I knew and once loved.

    General CommentIt's so weird how I can relate to each and everyone of 3eb's songs. They are so amazing. Stephen writes beautiful lyrics. I like the last three verses in particular. I agree with Cool_Dandy I think what he means is that he is deep inside of her heart. The song doesn't necessarily have to be taken sexually. That would be a little too obvious. Thes lyrics are beautiful and a little more complex. You have to look closely to get the full meaning. This song is so sad...I remember a time when I couldn't relate to these broken-hearted songs.

    General CommentThis is as close to lyricaly perfect as music gets. "i never felt alone until i met you" and "I breathe by your looks and you look right through me" are amazing lines. This guy is unbelievably talented at writing music. The whole bridge section crushes me everytime i hear it because it explains exactly how i feel.

    General CommentI love this song. 3EB writes great songs that are very poetic. I agree wiht keithjones. I think that that is a very good interpretation of the song. I can really relate to this song. Especially in the line
    "i never felt alone, untill i met you
    im alright on my own, and then i met you"
    I had never before felt that i needed to be in a relasonship but then i dated this AMAZING girl for a couple months before she broke up wiht me. And that is exactly how i feel. I never felt like i was alone untill after her. and i never felt like i needed someone untill her and now its like im seaching for another special someone but i dont know if i will ever find someone like her. I can just really relate to these lyrics as i can wiht most of 3EBs songs.

    General Commentunbelievable song. there is so much truth in "i don't want to call you, but then i want to call you, cause i don't want to crush you, but i feel like crushing you". relationships get to the point where you know what will crush the other person, but usually by that point you love them enough not to. this line is about when you know what will ruin them, and what will keep them from ruin, and you have that choice to make.
