"Deeper" as written by Pranam Injeti and Shawn Smith....
I want to go deeper
But I don't know how to swim
I want to be meeker
But have you seen this old earth?
I want to fly higher
But these arms won't take me there
I want to be, I want to be

Maybe I could run
Maybe I could fly, to you
Do you feel the same
When all you see is
Blame in me?

And the wonder of it all is that I'm living just to fall
More in love with you
More in love with you

I want to go deeper
But is it just a stupid whim?
I want to be weaker
Be a help to the strong
I want to run faster
But this old leg won't carry me
I want to be, I want to be

Maybe I could run
Maybe I could fly, to you
Do you feel the same
When all you see is
Blame in me?

And the wonder of it all is that I'm living just to fall
More in love with you
More in love with you

Maybe I could run
Maybe I could follow
It's time to walk the path
Where many seem to fall
Hold me in your arms
Just like any Father would
How long do we have to wait?
How long, we're going all the way

And the wonder of it all is that I'm living just to fall
More in love with you

    General CommentDescribes our need to want to know God better and how we give excuses to avoid him but then we fall back into his love.

    General CommentIt's an awesome song isn't it?!? It's like saying how hes inadequate for God, and can't seem to be able to reach him. And then he's just like YEAH! Its an amazing expression of a feeling that's darn hard to put into words!

    General Commentthis was the song that made me fall for delirious, no pun intended but really, tis lighthearted and yet it carries such meaning and depth. a wonderful reminder that God can always make you radical a believer by the day only if you're willing to let Him to do so, afterall He IS God and is far greater than the calamities of this world.

    General Commentthis so sums up me and God. i come off a week away or back from soul survivor thinking "YES! i'm going to go full on for God" and i mess up and think it's not worth it any more. but our father's always waiting to catch us: " Hold me in your arms, Just like any father would ". he believes in us and will give us the strength and power to go out and live for him again, no matter what we do.

    General CommentI think its just about struggles when trying to get closer to God. He keeps giving reasons why not to (or excuses, as proto says). But he knows deep down "i wanna go deeper", and "we're goin all the way". Great chilled out song as well.

    General CommentThis is a wonderful song -- I think Martin Smith is the best worship songwriter of this generation, and one of the best voices. Delirious?'s music is such an inspiration to me...their hearts are just on fire for God and it comes out so powerfully in their music, but especially in this album ("King of Fools")
