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

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

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
And the wonder of it all is that I'm living just to fall
More in love with you
The wonder of it all (and the wonder of it all)
The wonder of it all (the wonder of it all)
Is that I'm fallin', fallin', fallin'

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

    It'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!

    this 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.

    this 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.

    I 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.

    This 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")

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Ed Sheeran
