Lyric-Deep Down Inside

by Gopi Kottoor

Too much walking in the sun
Has burnt a hole in my heart so big and wide:
Its’ just to touch you
That I walk the waters and hold back my stupid tears
Hear the people say I’d rather do somethin’ else
I’ve been wasting my life

Now I don’t care if I sleep or wake
To hell if that’s a big mistake
You’ll be the only one
In galaxies that I leave behind

Deep down inside/
Deep down inside
Don’t ask me why
I’ll say it with pride

Dancin’ in the milky light
I’m drunk and never enough on your Cincinatti wine:
It is just to hold you
That I swim the sea and burn down lonesome skies
See my friends laugh you have me caught in a trap
I’m wasting my life

I don’t care if I’m burnt at stake
My love would be a classic case
I can love you till the end of time
And in my other life

Deep down inside
Deep down inside
Don’t ask me why
I’ll say it with pride

They say I call out your name in sleep
Give me antidotes to keep
My distances from growing so deep
Its’ just to love you
that I hold the islands of sorrow and melt down the ice bergs of the morrow
Hear my friends ask me why I do this big crime
wasting my life
I don’t care if I laugh or cry
Loving you is the greatest way to die

You’ll be the only one
In galaxies that I leave behind
I can love you till the end of time
And in my other life

Deep down inside
I’ll say it with pride
You’ll be the only one
In galaxies that I leave behind

Deep down inside
Deep down inside

Don’t ask me why
I’ll say it with pride
Deep down inside
Deep down inside
