Emmylou Harris – Beneath Still Waters Lyrics

Beneath still waters
There’s a strong undertow
The surface won’t tell you
What the deep water knows
Darling, I’m saying
I know something’s wrong
Beneath still waters
Your love is gone

Even a fool could see
That you’ll soon be leaving me
But each and every heart
Must take its turn at misery

And this time it’s me
And I’ll cry alone
Beneath still waters
Your love is gone

Even a fool could see
That you’ll soon be leaving me
But each and every heart
Must take its turn at misery

And this time it’s me
And I’ll cry alone
Beneath still waters
Your love is gone
Beneath still waters
Your love is gone
Beneath still waters
Your love is gone
