How Deep It Goes
Heart Lyrics

In the quiet afternoon you left and went down into town
And I just watched the empty road behind you
Where the fog lies kissing the mountainside
You want to be sleeping, deep inside
Believing that the hungry world won't find you

Well, that's just fine, that's just fine
You've got to believe and I don't know, I don't know
What I believe anymore
Or whether to leave, or whether to stay
Or what I can say
To make you know
How deep it goes

Somebody turned on the dirty blues
I know you don't like the blues
Cause the words are always the same
And they kind of remind you
Somebody turned the blues on me
I don't like the blues cause I can't see
Through the tears that come and make it hard to find you

Come on down
Come on down
You've got to come lay down here and say those things
Those warm things, right here in my ear
The times that you had that water like wine
So clean and so fine to make me know how deep it goes
Well, that's just fine, that's just fine
You've got to believe and I don't know, I don't know
If I could leave anymore, even though there's a scar
Still fresh from the war, don't think about it no more
Letting new love flow
How deep it goes

This like a lot of heart songs seemed like they KNEW what I was thinking or going thru at one time or another. And it goes without saying what mavericks & how insanely talented they were

Rhianna Barr-Beaumont

Written entirely by Ann. She wrote because she was pissed off with her then boyfriend going into the city and leaving her alone. She also plays flute


this has always been one of my fa v songs on this album


Lovely song.


The flip side of "Magic Man" I played this song even more.


@rubiks6 I skipped it because the radio played it to death.


I played this album over and over, often skipping "Magic Man." Not that there was anything wrong with "Magic Man," it just doesn't have the depth of feeling that the rest of the album has. Often, "Soul of the Sea" is my favorite.


underrated Heart song

Shane Lindeman Music

Hard to choose but I think this is the best song on the album.

I love you Heather Anne, and I will not stop fighting until I find you. The scar may always be there but it will never keep me from loving you My Queen Of Hearts. I will Always be your King.
