Doc Schneider: Music

Deeper

(John Mayer-Doc Schneider)
August 28, 2005
Lyrics - John Mayer, Music -Doc Schneider
Lyrics Published by John Mayer for a Songwriting Contest in Esquire magazine challenging amateurs and pros to write chords and melody for his lyrics. I am pressing this lame effort on a CD and sending it in. We will see what happens.
Deeper

I keep a note that I wrote
on a taxi receipt
It says,"Don't listen to anybody other than me."

I hit the big time for a nominal fee,
You lose a friend in the end for every dream that you see come true.

I got scars upon scrapes,
I got bruises on breaks,
Masochistically committed to see how much of this I'll take -
Three years under water, and I ain't even got the shakes
I going deeper and deeper and deeper

I've got dreams to remember,
I've got days to forget
I've got some phone calls in to God but he ain't called me back quite yet

I got scars upon scrapes,
I got bruises on breaks,
Masochistically committed to see how much of this I'll take -
Three years under water, and I ain't even got the shakes
I going deeper and deeper and deeper

Lyrics -John Mayer
