Lyrics

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again
And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love, then you softly leave
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me
I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You’re the light in my deepest, darkest hour
You’re my savior when I fall
And you may not think I care for you
When you know down inside that I really do
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me
Na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love, then you softly leave
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me (na-na-na-na-na)
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me (na-na-na-na-na)
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

  1. This is a song that my hubby would play for me. My husband passed away in Sept 2023 and I can’t get it together without him. We would dance until he couldn’t do it anymore.

  2. This is the most of my favorite song written by them. I reminds me of the old days when I was in college, wooing this girl that I really want meet. But to no avail, and just ignore me. Every time I hear this song, it just make me sad and wondered.

  3. There really is not a word or words adequate enough to do the Bee Gee’s justice! None! I live in Florida and would gladly drive to Miami, just to shake Sir Barry’s hand. No words needed.
