"Deeper Water" as written by and Minnie Driver....
Take me out, take me out
Far into the deeper water
Show me how, show me how
For I have longed to love deep water

I was washed up on the shore
You take me out in the water once more

Slowly, I cannot swim fast
And I know, neither can you
We'll float, let all the clouds pass by
You and I, you and I
You and I, you and I

Why you blue, why you blue
Did she bring you out here too
Wait and see, wait and see
The tide might bring you here to me

I was washed up on the shore
You take me out in the water once more

Slowly, I cannot swim fast
And I know, neither can you
We'll float, let all the clouds pass by
You and I, you and I

(Repeat out)

    General CommentThis song is about the exploration and discovery of love in a relationship. Its about getting to know someone and allowing the relationship to grow organically. You can tell she has experienced some heartbreak in the past (I was washed up on the shore) but she is rescued by her lover (You take me out in the water once more). But clearly they want to take things slowly. Its a beautiful song.
