Hurt lies deep, as an ocean deep
as the knife that drives in my heart
hurt is the loss of a loved one gone
as grief shifts with sand long gone
And the clouds drift by and the waves roll on
and the boat rocks my soul toward the sky
and I rest my head on the pillow of my lord
he can have it all
Peace rests deep, as an ocean deep
as this lonesome sleep within my heart
peace is as high as the winter sky
and still as the moon hangs in her pride
Love digs deep, as an ocean deep
as the love you're giving me
love is content as the humble sheep
and wild as the storm can be

"I took the disc home and put it on the CD player and I've got to tell you something. I don't think I can remember a time when I was so completely engrossed, impressed, entranced, I do believe that this song is very special indeed - from the CD Roadside Dreams by Ribbon Road, the beautiful voice of Brenda Heslop - I just think this is simply amazing."
"Songwriter Brenda Heslop has a secret, and she will whisper it in your ear: but a shocking secret, and its effect on you is much greater than you expect from a whisper. True, Brenda's secrets are in song, but the effect of her quiet vocals and harmonies with husband Geoff whacks you in the lughole and makes you pay attention."
