Digging deep


by Poor Old Lu. Buy album CD: Straight Six


Always one of our more popular songs. I suppose that is because it features our long-time friend, Jeremy Enigk, who also sings with Sunny Day Real Estate. Aaron, Nick, Jeremy and I played together early on, if you can call it playing! We had fun. Since this song was written to be a duet, we thought it would be great to sing with Jeremy again. And so we did. Jeremy changed the lyrics slightly on the bridge (artistic license, I suppose), but it came out rather well. He also dreamt up the great background vocals!

'Digging Deep' is a song focused on reaching out to others, that is, with the Gospel. It is frightening. It is difficult. It is unnerving to put yourself 'out-on-a-limb' so much, but it is absolutely the calling of our Lord! There are times, however, when we don't heed the Word of God and we 'won't' share with someone... it could be that a seed will never be planted in them. This song ends with the first verse (again), but the idea is that this time we are going to follow through... though we are scared.


so now hold your breath
and set the stage
prepare yourself for the cynic's rage
is it a question still of who is man?
or how they feel and what i am

but digging deep i found a way
what more do i need to say

gone through life and death
and what remains
if any blemish hang your head in shame
like a fever that just keeps you down
would you simply let it stay around?

'digging deep' i guess i say
is more pridefulness of that day
in truth i know that it is clear
i was distant, God is near

in the goodness and strife
found and empty wanting life
though so long made no sound
with tears i bowed myself down

won't you greet this man
and hear his words
maybe an open ear would make him stir
could a closed heart have saved all man?

digging deep i guess i say
is more pridefulness of that day
in truth i know that it is clear
i was distant, God is near

so now hold your breath and set the stage
prepare yourself for the cynics rage
is it a question still of who is man?
or how they feel and what i am
