  • Lyrics
  • This was the theme song to the hit motion picture The Deep, a film which takes place largely underwater. Summer's singing makes the song very alluring and at times haunting, although the lyrics tend to repeat themselves. The song was a major hit in Great Britain and western Europe, but only a minor one in the United States. >>
