"Deep" as written by Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh, John James Douglas and David John Pybus....
When you're near me I have difficulty respirating
When you're near me I have difficulty concentrating
When you're near me I have difficulty standing upright
When you're near me I have difficulty sleeping at night

I used to stand proud like a sphinx
In a noble immovable state
Then your heart nailed me under a jinx
Now I'm feeling like a jellyfish

Just a spineless wobbly jellyfish
And it's great, great, so great
I used to stand high like a pine
Just a piece of emotionless wood

When you put your body near mine
Now I'm feeling like a jellyfish
And it's good, good, so good
I used to be an iceman

Living in iceman town
So I'm warning all you cool cool icemen
You'd better be prepared to be melted right down
Down

When you're near me I have difficulty

    Deep
    by Anthema


    Feel my heart burning
    Deep inside... yearning
    I know it is coming

    A fettered heart, waking
    Tainted youth, fading
    Leave it all behind
    Delirious again
    Mesmerize my senses
    Souls entwine one more time

    All our times will come
    Searching oblivion
    Leaving nothing but the memories of
    All the things you give
    They're all you'll leave behind
    Within their mind

    Open laughter held in distant days
    Eternal stars have changed
    I know that it can't be the same
    There's no lament for you tonight

    Feel my heart burning
    Deep inside... yearning
    I know it is coming

    All our times will come
    Searching oblivion
    Leaving nothing but the memories of
    All the things you give
    They're all you'll leave behind
    Within their mind

    Time recedes every day
    You can search your soul but you won't see
    As we pass ever on and away
    Towards some blank infinity

    General CommentThis is both the most depressing and most uplifting song I've ever heard. Kind of a strange feeling to describe. Achingly beautiful, I suppose...

    To me, it's about regret for a wasted youth and the realization that those moments will never return.

    General CommentI agree... seriously man! This is one song which is so depressingly soothing! Its like everytime i feel screwed up in life, i come back and listen to this song... it hurts but still it comforts you in its own strange way.

    Yeah i really hope that they stick to what they're doing and not poke their ass into creating meaningless stuff. But its sad that many people dont even know that such a band exists. This band is so truly awesome and original...

    General CommentSuch memories with this song ... first Anathema song that I heard, and I listened to this album a lot (A LOT!) back in summer of '99 - a summer of great and varied changes in my personal life. So just on that level, this song means a great deal to me, all kinds of personal things concerning friends, a girlfriend and so on.

    But the song itself is, I believe, about life as a whole. Just about being born, growing up and all that - and where everyone's heading, eventually.

    General CommentMELANCOLIC, DEPRESSIVE, MESMERIZING .... A PAINFUL LUST THAT CREATES ADDICTION.

    AS I LISTEN TO THIS SONG I FEEL STRONG, I FEEL WEEK, I FEEL CONFUSED, LOST. A STRANGE KIND
    MIXTURE OF PAIN AND PLEASURE SHAKENS MY SENSES. MEMORIES OF THE PAST AND VISIONS OF FUTURE
    DARKEN MY SIGHT AND I FALL PRISONER TO ITS SWEET SOUND. IT TAKES ME DEEP '
    INSIDE MY INNER SELF... SO DEEP THAT I CAN HARDLY GET OUT.

    I THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT THIS: 'WHAT AM I TO THIS WORLD ?'
    SUCH A BIG QUESTION FOR A SMALL EXISTENCE
