She turned her head as if to hide,
There was just nowhere to go
Cause standing tall on every side,
The mighty fear of letting go
She said, my God I'm so ashamed,
Thirty years a tragedy
I still believed that he could change,
But he pulled me down like gravity

He broke my will, but it's deeper still, deeper still

She told me morning was the time,
When the sun burned bright and clean
And love grew fragile on the vine,
All wrapped up in gold and green
Cause after all we know we all
Are after all the same things
But for the sun no rain would fall,
And it burned him up and turned him mean

This fire that kills me, it's deeper still, deeper still

Tonight I rose up with the moon,
And looking down from high above
I saw a world carved and confused
Into valleys deep in need of love
And falling down all thick with grace,
Heaven's cloud of mystery
Was filling every empty space,
Down to the depth of human need

This love that heals, it's deeper still
(Love that heals me, love that heals me,
Love that's deeper still)
(Love that heals me, love that heals me,
Love that's deeper still)
This love that heals me,
It's deeper still,
It's deeper still

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song.
    There is so much to it, but I think it's about a woman who spent her life in a destructive relationship that she let ruin her life. She worshiped the man she was with and he never got what he needed from her so he became abusive (either verbally or physically). He was her sun. She in turn never felt like she was good enough for him and she just dried up. Unknowingly, she blamed God, she blamed others, and she blamed herself for all that was wrong in her life. She became cold to the world around her and she didn't even know it.
    Now that she knows God, she is ashamed with what she let happen in her relationship and she is reconciling with what he let her do and what she did to herself. It had affected her so deeply that she had let the "tragedy" of that relationship rule her life without even being aware of its destruction. When she is redeemed by the Lord she is overwhelmed and any bit of cold heartedness she had is gone. She is healed and overwhelmed with the real love that she gets from the Lord.

    I know 2 women right now who really need the Lord, he would heal their entire lives if they let him. Their respective marriages are failing and it's so hard to watch. I wish they could hear this song and know that only hearbreak is ahead if they continue to go it alone.
