The Cure & The Cause
Fish Go Deep Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You give sweet, and how easily, I, I fall deep
Your touch pours like honey on my skin
Smooth it lingers, you
The cure and the cause, of my blues
My only flaw

In the sea, it can be freezing, I thought I'd float
I sink deeper blue, by you I'm consumed
I'm such a fool thinking I won't get caught in your downhill flow
Swept away, what good is a beautiful day, I'm alone and you
The cure and the cause of my blues
My only flaw

Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away
(Don't take) Don't take your love away, your love away

You are the cure and the cause




Of my blues
My only flaw

You give sweet, and how easily I, I fall deep
Your touch pours like honey on my skin, smooth it lingers
You, the cure and the cause
Of my blues
My only flaw
Your sea, it can be freezing, I thought I'd float
I sink deeper blue, by you I'm consumed
Oh, I'm such a fool thinking I won't get caught in your downhill flow
Swept away, what good is a beautiful day? I'm alone
And you, the cure and the cause
Of my blues
My only flaw
Keep needing, keep calling
Even from a shut door
You step from view
Can still see you, your shadow tells me more
Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away, your love away
Just a few things before I head on my way
You're wonderful and good when you want to be
You're what I want but not what I need
You're no good for me
But you're the cure
Oh yeah, and you're the cause
Of my blues
Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away, your love away
Don't take your love away, your love away

Music that makes me proud to be South African. Amapiano moves the body, deep house moves the soul

@sowhat...

What's this song's connection to South Africa?

@un_Definedza

@@sowhat... it was quite popular. House music was still big in SA in the early 2010s, so songs like this are attached to childhood memories

@tristyna7

@@sowhat... we just love our house music
