Deeper Water

Paul Kelly

On a crowded beach in a distant time
At the height of the summer see a boy of five
At the waters edge so nimble and free
Jumpin over the waves looking way out to sea
(No words)
Now a man comes up from amongst the throng
takes the young boy's hands and his hand is strong
And the child feels safe, yeah the child feels brave
As he's carried in those arms up and over the waves,
Deeper water
Deeper water
Deeper water.....................is calling him on
(no words)
(no words)
(no words)

Lets move forward now and the childs seventeen
With a girl in the back seat tuggin at his jeans
And she knows what she wants, she guides with her hands
And a voice cries inside him, I'm a man, I'm a man
Deeper water
Deeper water
Deeper water.............................is calling him on

Now the man meets a woman unlike the rest
Well he doesn't know it yet but he is out of his depth
And he thinks he can run it's a matter of pride
But he keeps coming back just like a cork on the tide.

Deeper water
Deeper water

Now the years hurry by and the woman loves the man
One night in bed he grabs a hold of his hand
Says 'dad can you feel it kicking inside'
And the man gets a shiver right up and down his spine

Deeper water
Deeper water
Deeper water.....................is calling him on

So the clock moves on and the child is a joy
But death doesn't care just who it destroys
Now the woman gets sick
Its down through the bone
She says where I'm going, I'm going alone

Deeper water
Deeper water

On a distant beach lonely and wild
At a later time see a man and a child
And the man takes the child up into his arms
Takes her over the breakers, to where the water is calm
