  • My ammunition won't load into my gun
    My inhibitions, they fall like the weight from a stone
    You lead my heart away like a homeless, dusted fool
    Somehow this dime store ring still shines like a diamond to you

    Oh, how it deepens
    Oh, how it deepens

    Your mystery
    Keeps on turnin' me on
    Your mystery

    Thought I knew the rules, thought I held it in my hand
    Thought I was bulletproof till the blood pooled up in the sand
    Are you a satellite, a shooting star or a dove?
    Did we put you way up there or did God send you down from above?

    Oh, how it deepens
    Oh, how it deepens

    Your mystery
    Keeps on turnin' me on
    Your mystery
    Burns me up like the sun
    Your mystery

    Mine eyes have seen the glory of a love that does transcend
    Mine eyes have seen the worst inside of man
    And fear is like a fallen bridge broken from an edge
    And the proof is in the bloodshot eyes of the one who failed to see Writer/s: EDWARD JOEL KOWALCZYK
