"Dig Down Deep" as written by and Marc Cohn....
Baby let's go below the surface
See what we can find
There's no reason to be nervous
'Cause it happens all the time

I don't want to go up to the mountain
I don't need to go down to the sea
Gonna sit right here 'till we unravel
The mystery

While the lights of the city
Are shining below
Gonna hold onto you girl
And never let go

While everyone else is just walking around
In their sleep
Baby let's dig down
Dig down deep
I want to dig down deep

And I don't want to wait until tomorrow
'Cause the fortune said that "The time is now"
It's time to find out what we're doing
What we're doing anyhow

Let's go out in the moonlight
And walk for awhile
Maybe stay up all night and we could
Talk for awhile
Kick off your shoes

'Cause you've got nothing to lose
But your sleep
Baby let's dig down
Dig down deep
I want to dig down deep

It's an open invitation
So baby don't you cry
It's a life long celebration
And I think we're right on time

It's a feeling in your heart
And a lump in the throat
It's a strange and lovely ride
want to dig down deep inside

While the lights of the city
Are shining below
Gonna hold onto you girl
And never let go

While everyone else is just walking around
In their sleep
Baby let's dig down
Dig down deep
I want to dig down deep

Could you dig down deep
I want to dig down deep

    General Commenti'm suprised no one's commented on this song! i love it, i think it's so beautiful in a very blunt, everyday sort of way...(haha)

    when i first heard it, i didn't really like it, as the usual beloved song about wanting to "make love" is very metaphorical; just take savage garden's "truly madly deeply" for example. but this song says the exact same thing except in a very everyday, relatable fashion, which is very abnormal and difficult to pull off without sounding like a desperate fool, and marc does it perfectly. :)

    the line "i don't want to go up to the mountain, i don't need to go down to the sea" is so priceless. knowing and loving the savage garden song as well as i do, i saw it as the perfect jab at all of those flowery love songs, and grinned when i first heard it. i have since then grown to love this song for its simple beauty.

    marc cohn is an incredible singer and songwriter. can't wait for him to play in my area.
