IG @ogefashblog

Oh! How I  have always wanted to write about the song “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper because of the way the two artistes performed the song. The title of the song may be “Shallow” but the song in terms of lyrics and performance is not shallow; so exquisite and profound. The artistes were of exceptional performance in the song. They put real feelings into the song, while singing the song and this really made it interesting to the ears and interesting to watch. A soulful and heartwarming voice

The song “Shallow” was made for the romantic movie “A Star is Born” acted by both Lady Gaga (Who played the role of Ally) and Bradley Cooper(Who played the role of jack). the movie was also produced by Bradley Cooper.

Shallow is a love song no doubt whereby both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper used the word “Shallow” to describe how profound and overwhelming their love for each other is. They explain their kind of love as the one that is not after outward appearance like beauty or after money or cars, but inner beauty.

“I am off the deep end” In essence,  they are too deeply in love and deeply involved with each other to hurt themselves or be separated by anyone in the world. They have no regret for the love they have for each other.

Their love story is like when one jumps into the deep end of a pool without fear of being hurt or better still when you jump into a pool where the water is over your head; at that moment, you believe you are doing the right thing and that nothing can happen to you.

In order to get on with the relationship, both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are willing to try new approaches to making a relationship.

Shallow as I conclude has a perfectly arranged lyrics and a perfect flow of rhythm!

Take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO SHALLOW BY LADY GAGA AND BRADLEY COOPER

 VERSE 1 (BRADLEY COOPER)

Tell me something, girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there something else you’re searching for?

I’m falling
In all the good times I find myself
Longing for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

(LADY GAGA)

Tell me something, boy
Aren’t you tired trying to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?

I’m falling
In all the good times I find myself
Longing for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

PRE CHORUS

I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

CHORUS (LADY GAGA AND BRADLY COOPER)

In the sha- a-sha- a- hallow

In the sha-a- sha-a- hallow

In the sha- a-sha- a- hallow

We’re far from the shallow now

INTERLUDE

Oh, oh, oh, oh oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

PRE CHORUS (LADY GAGA)

I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

CHORUS (LADY GAGA AND BRADLY COOPER)

In the sha- a-sha- a- hallow

In the sha-a- sha-a- hallow

In the sha- a-sha- a- hallow

We’re far from the shallow now.
