Meet Me in the Deep End

Lyric
By Patti Wood

The first time you put your arm around me, I tensed up and pulled away.
Couldn’t bear to feel your touch.
Didn’t want to like you too much.
Built walls with what I couldn’t say.

I’m tired of skating on the surface.
I’ll face my fear of diving in.
Babe I’m ready for you.
Meet me in the deep end.
Meet me in the deep end.
Meet me in the deep end.

It’s so much simpler to stay silent, don’t share what you really feel.
When I care men turn and run.
Seem to like shallow fun. But
We talk below the empty to the real

I’m tired of skating on the surface.
I’ll face my fear of diving in.
Babe I’m ready for you.
Meet me in the deep end.
Meet me in the deep end.
Meet me in the deep end.

Bridge
I take off my layers of protection and show you who I really am.
You’re worth the risk of rejection.
Let’s Jump in the deep blue genuine.

I’m tired of skating on the surface.
I’ll face my fear of diving in.
Babe I’m ready for you.
Meet me in the deep end.
Meet me in the deep end.
Meet me in the deep end.

Meet me in the deep end.
Meet me in the deep end.
Meet me.
Meet me.
Meet me.

Random lyrics that I didn’t use. I came up with chorus several months ago both the words and the music and wrote most of the verse lyrics two weeks ago, and spent a weekend on creating the bridge.

I’ll stop pretending that I’m carefree, that slights and slices don’t cause pain
I’ve been so scared, but you see
People don’t really know me
With you I’ll do the daring not play the game

Joy and Pain mix in the sea of genuine.
I’ve been so scared and waited so long to jump in

can’t wait to feel

Lets stop pretending we don’t care and go deep

stop pretending that I’m carefree, ready to show you who I really am
and tell you what’s absolute

I can stop pretending I’m carefree,
That my feelings don’t matter

I’m ready to take off

There’s always a chance of drowning, but I’m ready for a sea change
I’m tired there’s always the chance of drowning, but I’m ready for a sea change
There is not life guard caring
With you I’ll do the daring
We can have something worth the risk of

I wrote the book on going slowly, Fear to repeat the painful past
But you’ve turned the pages slow
Waiting till I said lets glow
Don’t have to pretend to make it last.
