"Deep Enough" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
We hit the room, me and my crew and it was cool, until we bumped into you now it's been years, but there you were like a mustang, redlinin' every single gear with a man that danced like he was born in '49, but lost his groove back when jesus died I want to know, are those replacement hips? is that a swatch watch? do you know what time it is?

Does he run it deep enough
To take you there?
Does he run it deep enough
Oh tell me baby
Does he run it deep enough?
Tell me, tell me
Does he run it deep enough?
Does he run it deep enough for you?

We hit a couch, the place was packed with sweaty palms, sweaty thongs, and sweaty backs my mouth was dry, my brain cold high, the groove was right, so I decided to ignite your eyes met mine, you skirt began to rise, and so did I now you know that I took that prize in the middle of the club, in the middle of the club, in the middle of club now tell me!

Does he run it deep enough
To take you there?
Does he run it deep enough
Oh tell me baby
Does he run it deep enough?
Tell me baby

What did I do? what did I say? that gave you away tell me what didn't I do, what didn't I say that sent you away from me

I wait for you to take my I wait for you to take my hand

Does he run it deep enough
To take you there?
Does he run it deep enough
Oh tell me baby
Does he run it deep enough
Oh tell me, tell me
I'm just a jealous guy, I'm just a jealous guy, come on!

    General CommentI love this song, too! It cracks me up, but at the same time I love that the jilted lover gets to basically say "now see what you're missing out on?" It's a basic human emotion when someone leaves you that you want them to regret it at some point and I love that this song addresses that emotion in a way that is sexy and humorous and in your face without being offensive. Well, at least not offensive to me, but I'm sure offensive to someone . . . who needs to get laid. LOL! Ooops, sorry, did I say that in my outside voice? ;-)

    Speaking of being offensive, I'm sure I'll piss off some feminist or uptight chick somewhere when I say that if this song is autobiographical at all and he really did nail his ex in the club with her new boyfriend hanging about somewhere, then all I have to say is: "Dude - studman - score - high five." LMAO!

    Even though the song addresses the anger and jealousy of rejection and the desire to lash out at the person who hurt you, I love that it also diverges just enough to give you a glimpse of the insecurity and inadequacy that is aroused by the rejection as well -- "what did I do? what did I say? that gave you away; tell me what didn't I do, what didn't I say; that sent you away from me."

    Great song. Provocative. Love it.

    General CommentI've been a live fan since Throwing Copper came out. Granted this song is very different from anything on Mental Jewelry up to even The Distance to Here, I like this song. It's not "live" but who wants to listen to a band that all their songs sound the same anyways? Music is about expression. When I first bought V, I didn't like it. But after I listened to it for awhile and got used to their different sound, I liked it. Especially this song, I always go right to this song when I put the cd in. There's just something about the beat and of course how the lyrics are delivered.

    General CommentIS it a problem that every now and then a song is obviosly about what its about? Just beacuse its talking about sex in a way that is in your face doesnt mean that its not as worthy as a song like Lakin's Juice or Ghost.

    this song has such a good rhythm to it, it just makes you want to move!

    and yes, its about a jealous guy who wants to know if his ex's new bloke is as good as him...but does that just have to be about sex...?

    anyway, good song... good band... and apparently he doesnt run it deep enough (the no babys at the end)

    My InterpretationFor me this is about not knowing what you had until you've lost it.

    He obviously had something special and it wasn't until he saw it in the hands of another that he realized. He wanted it back. He wanted to reclaim his prize.

    He seduces her, knowing that there is still a connection. Yet it isn't about her at all, it is about him. There is a sadness in his claiming of her in the name of selfish jealousy. The song lambastes the subject of its point of view through his primal and unthinking act which mirrors the selfishness he had during their relationship.

    He has to ask what he did and didn't do, because he can't conceive the thoughts of his own failures. This is classic behavior of someone with a narcissistic personality.

    In the end: He's seduced her, and it was amazing. Then he makes her question everything, and when he is done... leaves her once more broken-hearted with a claim that excuses his behavior in a fashion that actually blames her... she should have known better.

    General CommentA lot of Live songs have a sexual meaning behind them but this one is the most in your face. The lyrics are pretty self explainitory. He meets and ex girl and obviously they get it on right there in the club and hes asking if her new man runs it deep enough for her.

    General CommentSeems like Live is starting to concentrate more and more on sex... This is obviously the story of man that gets cheated on and becomes jealous not to say crazy. I dislike this song, because it's like... "live goes rapcore".

    General CommentI think this song is self explanitory, and that's why I was disappointed with V cuz they sank to the level of groups like limp bizkit putting their lyrics real blatantly ( i can't spell anymore) like referring to themselves and trying to be something they never were before. I think this song lyrically is pretty shallow but I do think it is an awesome song, and V was still an awesome album. However I do think that deep enough and overcome are the most Live esque songs on the album, and deep enough is my second favourite song on the album. I give it 3 1/2 out of 5 stars
