Deeper As Time Goes By

about

I have a friend who introduced me to the current version of the legendary Tams, although the last original member, Charles Pope had quit performing I think at the time. There was a film that was trying to some traction about the origins of NC Beach Music....I gave a cd of this demo (without the robot voice) to them after a show one night. I grew up with beach music and r&b around, so, at least in my eyes, this was just a young music fan wanting to get close to one of the bands that he loved their couple of huge R&B hits....in this casem, "What Kind of Fool? maybe "Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy"....so I wrote several songs that had the shag beat, r&b beat.... and this song, Deeper & Deeper, not like that style, more gospel, but Charles Pop was sick, and I was hoping to give his wife, Dianne something uplifting. There it went and as if in a vacuum, a good song for someone else to sing, but maybe a victim of bad timing. One addition of a trendy robot voice, and this is where it is at the moment...just another work in progress.

lyrics

Like a river runs deep
Like the roots under the trees
We have our own true love
and all the joy that it brings

gets deeper and deeper as time goes by
gets deeper and deeper as time goes by

Like and old familiar song
for a time that’s come and gone
Who says it’s the end of us
when the tolling bell rings

We’ll get deeper and deeper as times gone by
We’ll get deeper and deeper as times gone by
We’ll get deeper and deeper as times gone by
We’ll get deeper and deeper as times gone by


All we were and what we have
and all we’ll ever be
Will get deeper and deeper as time goes by
Will get deeper and deeper as time goes by


Like a cool ocean breeze
We will pass our days with ease
Floating gently down the stream
of a river that runs so deep

Deeper and deeper as time goes by
Deeper and deeper as time goes by
Deeper and deeper as time goes by
Deeper and deeper as time goes by
