"Deep Inside of You" to me is exactly what you think it means. I believe it has to do with sex but in the same sense the sex is not fulfilling. Stephan to me does this alot in songs, he's happy on the outside but deep underneath he's not. Semi-Charmed Life ("I want something else....") In I Want You ("You do you do, you make me want you/Send me all your vampires/AND I CAN'T GET ENOUGH). The lyrics in "Deep Inside of You" are the same as well.

"My thoughts are warm, and they go deep inside of you/Oh yeah and I never felt alone till I met you."

It's like you are sharing this wonderful experience with someone, you should feel connected, but this person is alone or feels alone when they are with their partner. Something tells me that this person is also confused, they do not know why they feel this way, all they know is that they DO feel this way for some strange reason. The confusion is obvious when the lyrics say:

"And Id know what to do if I just knew what's coming/I would change myself if I could/Id walk with my own people if I could find them/And I would say that I'm sorry to you/I'm sorry to you, but I don't want to call you/ But then I want to call you cause I don't want to crush you/But I feel like crushing you and it's true/I took for granted you were with me/I breath by your looks and you look right through me...."

Being with their partner makes them question about his/her state of being--

"Right...oh, what's right? Something's gone you withdraw and I'm not strong like before.."

"Deep Inside of You" is about losing yourself, there once was a point with being with your partner but you've lost that as well--

"I've lost my self there's nothing left, it's all gone Deep inside of you."

You have truly lost yourself while being deep inside this person and you have lost all connection with everything you stand for.

it's all about a sexual encounter. no doubt about it. I could tell the first time I heard it. and it was the only song on blue that I liked from the get go.

i will do it verse by verse. It's about sex.. but the words are twisted so you equate the sexual experience with LOVE. granted sex with one you love is hotter than sex with a humanoid mass attached to a dick..

ok here we go.

When we met light was shed - instant attraction or deep seeded nostalgia about how the love at first site.. which by the way is lust and physical attraction in most cases. Thoughts free flowed you said, you've got something deep inside of you. - this actually refers to two bodies connecting also on a spiritual level.. like old friends finding each other after a long journey.. you said, there's something deep in side of you.

A wind chime voice sound - a light breeze blowing in the background and the wind chimes clinking together.

sway of your hips round ring true - turning around and grabbing the hips from behind.

Theory:

I do not agree with sarah's theory. I don't think it has anything to do with sex. I think it is about a guy who is so deeply in love with a woman, but is crushed because he realizes that she doesn't love him like that. He speaks of her in such a wonderful way "wind chime voice sound, sway of your hips round rings true" She has something deep inside that she won't let anyone near. She changes his life, even his "friends say that I've changed", but he doesn't care because he puts all his thoughts in her. In the end he says "I'm not strong like I was before I was deep inside of you", she dumps him because of her own fear of commitment, and he resorts to sitting in room, burning candles and thinking of her.

I think that this song is about a guy looking back on a relationship that he can't hardly stand to be in anymore but he doesn't want to hurt this girl. At the beginning he talks about how they met "When we met...wind chimes (you get it)" 2nd verse before chorus is him on a walk thinking about what he should do (background of where the song is being sung) "Fall breeze...I don't break stride" 3rd verse is about the problem in relationship (he's changed) "Friends say I've changed I don't listen" 4th verse is about their first sexual encounter "Slide of her dress shouts in darkness I'm so alive" bridge-he wants to change for her but he doesn't want because of pride "I would change myself if I could and I'd say I'm sorry to you I'm sorry to you I don't wanna call I wanna call" End-He breaks up with her and he realizes he made a mistake and he really loved her. "Some great need in me starts to bleed I've lost myself there's nothing left"

Theory:

Ok...First of all, I can only partially agree with the theories of the whole sexual encounter thing. It's true Stephan does like to right about these things "She goes down on Me" in Semi-Charmed life, but this song is more of hurt then pleasure. The sexual aspect is that sex comes with every relationship and although it can get boring for one it was not for the guy who is talking in the song.

All relationships start off slow and just plain fun, there's the sex part. In this relationship the guy has just finally truly gotten past the sex part and now fallen in love. At this exact same time the girl has left him and in turn he's still "Deep Inside."

"These secret garden beems, change my life so it seems." This shows he's truly in love and now she's falling for something truly apart from him.

"I would change myself if I could" He would basically do anything to get her back. He wants to become that other guy and become what she wants.

"I burn candles and stare at a ghost" He remembers the times, yes possibly the sex for everyone who truly wants to believe this song is about sex, and she's not there.

"And some great need in me, starts to bleed. I've lost myself there's nothing left, it's all gone, Deep Inside of You" Finally this line truly shows he was in true love. When you lose everything to a girl it can only mean you were in love and now your "not strong like before". This was what Stephan has said about the song but i can't directly quote it but it was stated as simply, 'The guy falling in love just as she is falling out of it.' Either that's right or the radio likes to mistate things.

I totally agree with what Mandy had to say about the song. Some guy falls hard in love with some amazing girl, and it ends up not working in the end. There is some sexual reference though. It's still mostly a song about love, it's a bitch!!

I totally agree with mandy. It may seem like its about sex but thats the simple interpretation to me. To truly understand you have to be totallly in love with some one, then you'll know. Oh by the way e-mail me if you want a midi copy of the song, I'd be happy to send it to you. mojo256@juno.com

I strongly agree with Sarah, Julie, and Mandy. This song has so many levels to it. That's the way Third Eye Blind's lyrics are. Stephan Jenkins writes most of the lyrics, and he's a very complex person. You can tell just by listening to the albums. He puts a certain level of psycology in their music, along with physiology and everything else that goes along with being human. 3eb is a bout being human, and they write about every aspect of it. This applies to "Deep Inside of You", because you can see both Sarah and Mandy's theories as correct, because they both are. It's just that one is more physical, and the other is on a more psycological level. Also, the lyrics "Friends say I've changed, I don't listen...", in "Deep Inside of You", and "You say that I've changed, and maybe I did. But even if I've changed, what's wrong with it?" from "Never Let You Go", I think, are both trying to show that they've changed as a group, and Stephan Jenkins, the writer, has changed as a person. He also reflected this in his hair style, when he grew it longer.

Theory:

Mandy hit it right on the nose. This song is all about love, and has nothing to do with sex. "Deep Inside Of You" refers to emotions, not any sexual acts. This is a song about a guy who didn't have anyone at the time, and was convinced that he was fine, and that he didn't need anyone....until he meet this girl. She changed his life, and thats when he realized that he WAS alone. They abviously go through a bad time, hence the verse "i don't wanta call you, but then i wanna call you.cause i don't wanna crush you, but i feel like crushing you." That shows his mixed emotions over the bad times. Mandy sums the rest of it all up perfectly. *Beautiful job Mandy.....And the reason i know this is correct is because this exact situation happened to me.

I think in this song he expresses how he gave all the love that he could to one female and it was really hard for him to even get close to her but when he did, "These secret garden beams changed my life so it seems." he loved everything about her and he was a changed human-being. But then he gets dumped and he thinks he can't go on loving again because all his feelings are still trapped with that first lady he ever loved. "I've lost my self there's nothing left, it's all gone Deep Inside of you".

Theory:

I think deep inside of you is both about sex and love. In the beginning both of the partners feel something deep inside of them that they've never felt before with anyone. When they make love it's like they lose themselves inside the other person. And once they've been together they feel so alone after it because it's as if a part of them is inside the other person and they need that to go on. In the end she breaks up with him though because she's so afraid of getting hurt and commiting because of the feeling she has deep inside herself for him. But without her he feels more alone and depressed than he has ever felt and does nothing but dream of her and how it was. All this is actually very ironic for me because this is exactly what happened between me and my girlfriend Melony and what is even more ironic is that this is our song.

Theory:

This song is about having someone leave you and the person not being able to take the loneliness. We see that this girl made him feel "so alive" while he was deep inside of her, I guess both literally and emotionally. He has a connection with this girl that he never had with another before. And, suddenly, she is gone, and the guy just sits there, alone. "I've never felt alone, until I met you/I'm alright on my own, and then I met you." I take it, this guy has always dated around and never emotionally attached himself to people. I doubt he ever feared being alone; he probably never gave a damn. But now, he fell in love. And she is gone. And he can't go back to being the man he used to be and doesn't know how to deal with it.

"I've lost myself, there's nothing left, it's all gone...deep inside of you."

This is a song about true love, and fear, and resignation.

I first fell in love with "Deep Inside of You," when I saw Stephan with 3EB sing the song at the year 2001 New Year's Eve show on NBC. The way the couples were adoringly dancing with each other to this song, it seems to express a truly deep sense of the beauty and mystery of love. The song, and especially the quoted lyrics, express a melancholic sadness about a person loving another so much that he feels he has no choice about. He's lost everything, it's all gone, but he doesn't really mind being in love. "Fall breeze blows outside, i don't bring stride My thoughts are warm, and they go deep inside of you." The euphoria of love compensates for the fear of losing one's freedom.

I agree with both Mandy and Sarah. I think the song is about sex ("slide of her dress, shouts in darkness"), but not just that. I think it is a very emotional song. It is as if she has something she doesn't want anyone to know about (maybe she has emotional problems) She has all of these things she can't deal with so she hides them all 'deep inside'. It seems that he put so much into the realationship and he was so close to her, he lost alot of himself to her when they broke up. That's just what I think.

Theory:

I think the song is about the longing that one person has for another. Not necessarily sex or even intimacy. I feel that the song is expressing a gentle love that a person discovered while getting to know the opposite sex. I have felt the same way that the song describes. I never knew alone until I met you. Basically, being without you is the same as being the only person in the world that understands exactly what I am thinking. No chance for a connection like the one you had.

Email: browneyedgirl3eb@hotmail.com
Theory:

I think this song is about losing yourself in someone, the kind of relashionship that you get so far into, you build your life around someone, and you lose sense of who you are. Its evident in the lyrics, when he says " Ive never felt alone, till i met you, and im alright on my own then i met you", i think he is saying when he was alone before this girl it was fine, now when he is alone he can't handle it. The girl he writes about has obviously captured him, and changed him ( " Friends say ive changed, i dont listen cuz i live to be, deep inside of you") I also think that he messed up in some way by the way he apologizes, and mentions all his regrets in the lyrical chunk "And Id know what to do if I just knew what's coming,I would change myself if I could,Id walk with my own people if I could find them,And I would say that I'm sorry to you, I'm sorry to you, but I don't want to call you,But then I want to call you cause I don't want to crush you,But I feel like crushing you and it's true I took for granted you were with me,I breath by your looks and you look right through me But we were broken and didn't know it".....I think that is one of the best lyrics written on the cd. Anyways, back to the song. That whole thing to me, is like a plea to the girl, its like thats what hes thinking and hes ranting off naming all his regrets and everything he wishes for, and he knows that its the end, it wont be like it was before. He has lost his freinds, his life because all he does is involve himslef with her. I think he is depressed, he lives for this girl/ "I can go nowhere i burn candles and stare, at a ghost, deep inside of you"- i think he sees himself as her, she has instilled herself in him, he looks in the mirror and he he sees a ghost( his soul has died) and all he sees is her, she made him complete, but now shes gone and he cant find himslef cuz hes so lost-"ive lost myself theres nothin left, its all gone, deep inside of you". and It ends really sadly, when he sings the last verse u know it means something, it soundslike his soul is draining. and thats all

Sex is a part of it, that's true, but this is not a song about sex. It's about a guy Madly in "love". Deep violent love, where all touch with reality is lost, and everything exists in that other person, and only in them. He says " I've lost myself, there's nothing left, It's all gone... Deep inside of you". It's about one person being stronger, and the other losing themselves, completely consumed by the stronger one. It also shows when he says " Friends say I've changed, I don't listen, 'Cuz I live to be, Deep inside of you" He's talking about how, when you fall in love, sometimes, that person can become your entire life... friends, family, your "people", even yourself, take second place to that person. And sometimes, that person survives unscathed, untouched by the same madness, while you are empty, alone, and still lost.

Deep Inside of You is about a couple falling in love and then the relationship ending. Unfortunatly, the person this song focuses on still has the feeling of being in love. After the relationship ends, he/she feels like there is nothing left to live for. He/she is stuck, having to deal with the pain. This is a very real song for anyone who has ever truly been in love.

Theory:

To me, deep inside of you is about a guy who is so in love with this girl that he gets completely wrapped up in her and loses himself inside her. One line that drew me to this conclusion was "I never felt alone, untill I met you" is what gave it away for me. Many people have different perspectives about what it means. To me, he is saying that he never knew the true meaning of loneliness untill he met her. From that point on, whenever he was away from her he felt true loneliness. "I'm alright on my own, untill I met you." He felt like he was ok being by himself and then he met her and realized that she filled a void in his life.

Then the line "Friends say I've changed, I don't listen because I live to be, Deep Inside of You." describes how he is getting wrapped up in this girl. His friends are trying to tell him that he is different and they are trying to get him back, but he's too into her. He lives and breaths her!

"I've lost myself there's nothing left, it's all gone, deep inside of you. deep inside of you." He realizes that he has been completely overpowered by his feelings for this girl and he has finally sees that he doesn't even know himself anymore. the line b4 this one says "I don't go nowhere, I burn candles and stare at a ghost deep inside of you." The ghost deep inside of her is himself. I think he is trying to find himself but he doesn't know how so that is why he sits at home alone in the candle light.

These are the main lyrics that portray the most meaning. most of the rest is detail.


Name: Sunny
Song: Deep Inside of You

I'm agreeing with the theory of how it is partially about a sexual encounter, but also about how it's about how the narrator's losing himself to someone he's fallen in love with, someone who's afraid to love him back.

Examples:

"I've lost myself there," --He's losing his sense of self to this girl
"Stare at a ghost, deep inside of you" --He's reflecting on how the girl's putting forward a ghost and not letting herself show what's within her, that she's afraid.

I'm sure there's more I could use, but that's all I could remember off the top of my head

Deep Inside of You

When we met light was shed
Thoughts free flow you said you've got something
Deep inside of you
A wind chime voice sound, sway of your hips round rings true
Echos deep inside of you
These secret garden beams changed my life so it seems
Fall breeze blows outside, I don't break stride
My thoughts are warm, and they go deep inside of you
Oh yeah
And I never felt alone
Alright, alone...alone
Till I met you
Friends say I've changed
I don't listen cause I live to be
Deep inside of you
Slide up her dress, shouts in darkness
I'm so alive I'm
Deep inside of you
You said boy make girl feel good
But still...deep inside...STILL!
Ive never felt alone
Till I met you
I'm alright on my own
Till I met you
And Id know what to do if I just knew what's coming
I would change myself if I could
Id walk with my own people if I could find them,
And I would say that I'm sorry to you,
I'm sorry to you, but I don't want to call you,
But then I want to call you cause I don't want to crush you,
But I feel like crushing you and it's true
I took for granted you were with me,
I breath by your looks and you look right through me

But we were broke and didn't know
But we were broke and didn't know
But we were broke and didn't know
But we were broke and didn't know

Something's gone you withdraw and I'm not strong like before I was
Deep inside of you
I can go nowhere I burn candles and stare at a ghost
Deep inside of you
And some great need in me, starts to bled
I've lost my self there's nothing left, it's all gone
Deep inside of you
Deep inside of you
