(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: DEEP BY JULIA MICHAELS “FIRST AMERICAN SONG THAT IS…

@ogefashblog

Wow! Very succinct! This is the kind of songs I love to review, not some songs that end at 7 minutes 11 seconds on this earth #Winks

The song “Deep” by Julia Michaels has been in our catalogue for a while. I almost pushed this song into one of the videos for lyrics and meaning alone, but I really don’t know what happened; I ended up reviewing the entire track.

Before the main review, kindly take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO THE SONG DEEP BY JULIA MICHAELS

VERSE 1

I’m tryna come up with a systematic approach
To love you and let you go
But you are clouding’ up my judgment every time
You give me chills when you look at me like that
I don’t know how I feel
Nobody, nobody’s deep, deep, deep, deep
Deep, deep, deep

CHORUS

Somebody left me feeling empty
And somebody ripped me at the seams
But you’re bringing back all my feelings
You’re bringing back all of my feelings
I’m deep diving into your emotions
And sometimes, I think I might be broke
But you are bringing back all my feelings
You’re bringing back all of my feelings
And I fucking love, my fucking life

VERSE 2

It’s becoming less
Less about what I know

And more about what I think
I think that I go crazy every time your lips on mine
Oh my fucking God, I wanna change my mind
But oh, you’ve got it in so deep, deep, deep, deep
Deep, deep, deep.

CHORUS            

Somebody left me feeling empty
And somebody ripped me at the seams
But you’re bringing back all my feelings
You’re bringing back all of my feelings
I’m deep diving into your emotions
And sometimes, I think I might be broke
But you are bringing back all my feelings
You’re bringing back all of my feelings
And I fucking love my fucking life

 

 

(INTERLUDE- BEATZ)

Uh, yeah, yeah

OUTRO

Shy away from ya, I can’t
Put your love down, I can’t and I won’t
Can’t you see it from where you stand?
That you know, that you know, I love you

Shy away from ya, I can’t (Shy away)
Put your love down, I can’t and I won’t
Can’t you see it from where you stand? (Shy away)
That you know, that you know, I love you

Ah, ah, ah ah ah
Ah, ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah

Ah, ah, ah ah ah
Ah, ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah

THE REVIEW

 I love the vocabulary; i love Julia Michael’s intelligent use of words.

Lyrically, this is one of the few songs in America where I feel the artiste’s vocabulary is not shaky or mixed with slangs. I love the literary terms employed by the artiste. The lyrics to the song “Deep” is indeed deep and detailed . Kudos to Julia Michaaels!

The song comes in two verses that are heartwarming, deep and meaningful. The song talks about a lady (Julia) who was badly hurt from her past relationship. She was left depressed and did not want to go into another relationship for keeps but she however found herself falling so deeply in love with a new guy who managed to help her forget as well heal her emotional pains and past hurts.

The verses have the same 7 stanzas. The lyrics are in array. The chorus was sung twice.

The song arrangement: Verse 1- Chorus- Verse 2- Chorus- Outro

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1 “I’m tryna come up with a systematic approach”  Julia is looking for the most efficient method to do away with a new lover but all efforts proved abortive as she realized that she has fallen deeply in love with him. This she sang in the first line “I’m tryna come up with a systematic approach…”

We can tell that Julia’s new lover has some effects on her. the love she has for him is so strong. “I think that I go crazy every time your lips on mine”.

In the chorus “Somebody left me feeling empty”  Julia makes us realize that she is depressed and feeling meaningless because her ex-boyfriend  jilted her. Her new lover shows her love in such a way that she starts forgetting about the hurts in the past relationship. This gives her joy, although, she tries to examine the guy’s feelings for her to find out if his feelings for her are true or not. In her observation, she notices that he has been able to re- awake the feelings which she thought were dead and she is loving it!

In the Verse 2 “ It is becoming less” the artiste lets us know that she is allowing the new found love to be about them rather than self. She is now emotionally attached to the new lover, and even though she wants to change her mind about him, she finds herself falling deeply in love with him.

In the Outro, “Shy away from ya, I can’t”  Julia makes us realize that she can’t avoid or turn down her new lover because she is far too much in love with him.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “DEEP” BY JULIA MICHAELS MEAN

This is no doubt a love song. The best way to define the word “Deep” is something that is profound or intense.

The song “Deep” by Julia Michaels is about a lady that tries not to fall in love again in order not to be heart broken again.  However, she meets a new guy that makes her fall in love again.

Or better still,

The song is about a girl who was depressed. She was suffering emotionally because of how her last relationship with a guy ended. So, she decided not to get involved with guys, and if she was going to, she had rather not have them for keeps.  However,  that doesn’t happen as she finds herself falling deeply in love with a new lover who managed to heal her old wounds as well as help her forget past hurts.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

To cloud someone’s judgment: Make one unable to think clearly, confused

Chills:  A feeling of coldness, fears or worry; Ripped at the seams: To  be falling apart, to feel shattered; Deep dive: Indepth search, plunge deeply into something, examine something.
LOCATION

The video was shot in America, it is an indoor shoot

SOUND

The use of piano, shakers, drums and guitar made the song interesting to the ears. The artiste vocal is also convincing.  She sang expressively to the beat. The rhythm also flows well!

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Very simple video! I feel the video could have been better than this.  Those rays of light coming in through the windows were quite blinding, there should have been some form of adjustment.However, the video complements the track as we can see, towards the end of the movie, she  is lively again.
