Still water runs the deepest
Like a love complete and through
So peaceful and dependable
I can't say the same about you

Your love is cold and selfish
And it never could be true
One time I loved you truly
I can't say the same about you

I'm leaving, and I won't be back
I'm goin' to where I belong
Too long we've been together
And too long you've done me wrong

Still water runs the deepest
Like a love complete and through
So peaceful and dependable
I can't say the same about you

Well, I'm leaving, and I won't be back
Still water runs the deepest
Like a love complete and through
So peaceful and dependable
I can't say the same about you
