about

I wrote Shallow after being to New York. I was feeling very empty and missed the place so this song just came out of somewhere inside me.

lyrics

Still I can feel my heart drum
Slowly but steadily
Although it is a million kilometers away
where it can never sleep

With the beginning I knew it had to end
Like a summer love in Neverland
When you're born you gonna have to die
If you feel you gonna have to cry

I stole a shovel in 72nd street
And I ran as fast as my feet could
Finally found a place lonely in the woods
I took a knife and began to cut
I dig a hole with my hands full of blood
I took my heart out and had a precise look
The beat was still there, it would never leave me there
I buried my heart in the centre of the city- borough no.6
And even though it's a million miles away
still I can hear it
And it's tearing me apart

Shallow I am walking just like zombies do
But I don't want brains to eat
they are much too glibbery
I nearly lost everything that I had
Walked over the East River where I had
A great, great, great, great view
I took the shovel again the knife as well
Same procedure as last day
Same procedure as every day
I cut out the tree of my body and had a precise look
I planted my lungs just like a tree in Brooklyn Town
And even though it's a million miles away still I can breath
the heavy and thick air of
William, William, Williamsburg

When you're born you gonna have to die
If you feel you gonna have to cry
And when you dream you gonna have to try

Shallow I am walking
Shallow I am walking
Shallow I am walking just like zombies do
dododododo
Shallow I am walking
Shallow I am walking
Shallow I am wlaking just like zombies do
