Dig A Little Deeper

written by vanessa collier

 

Sweet nectar rhetoric, sour pucker on your lips

Drippin’ oil all day long

Got the slickest way of tellin’ me I’m nothin’

How I’m doin’ it all wrong

Well, you’re so blind bein’ busy

Tellin’ me every little thing you need

I know you won’t be happy

Unless you can prick me just to watch me bleed

 

But you gotta dig (dig) a little deeper

You gotta dig (dig) a little deeper

Oh you got to dig a little deeper

To bring me down and get to me

 

I know you’ve got your reasons (uh huh)

For awhile, you even had my sympathy

But the slow drip of the foolish quips

The bullshh in the veil of your apology

Now you don’t need to pander

I can handle the truth

So tell me what’s the use (I said what’s the use)

Bein’ tied to people who don’t celebrate you

 

You gotta dig (dig) a little deeper

You gotta dig (dig) a little deeper

Oh you got to dig a little deeper

To bring me down and get to me
