Bruce on the artist

Lyrics

Darling, I don't know much
I know I love you so much
My life depends on your touch
And my love is a river running soul deep
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep
It's too big to hide and it can't be denied
My love is a river running soul deep

I work myself to death for ya
Just to show I adore ya
Nothing I wouldn't do for ya
'Cause my love is a river running soul deep
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep
It's too big to hide and it can't be denied
My love is a river running soul deep

Ooh!
All I ever ever hope to be
Depends on your love for me
Baby, believe me, if you should leave me
I'd be nothing but an empty shell
I know darn well, I can tell now

I don't know much
But I know I love you so much
My life depends on your touch
And my love is a river running soul deep
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep
It's too big to hide and it can't be denied
My love is a river running soul deep

Na!
My love is a river running soul deep
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep
My love is a river running soul deep
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep
My love is a river running soul deep
Way down inside me it's a-soul deep...
