Shallow Lyrics

Play "Shallow"
on Amazon Music

Tell me somethin', girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for?

I'm falling
In all the good times I find myself
Longin' for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

Tell...

    I went to Nashville to write this song but it’s nice to work in Nashville, but we went there and write with Bradley cooper and he’s going to ask me something he said would you and Jonas brothers do another movie, star is born. I said yes. But when we set up the tour for Jonas brothers we wrote amazing songs like shallow, and burnin up. But we’re glad that we wrote that together. We stayed at the hotel and spend the night there, but we went swimming at the pool but it’s late.

    When I played the song I’m getting those shakes into my emotions and so this song reminds me of my cousin Nathan. It’s very personal song to my cousin who passed away. So, it’s for him and also britta too. But my friends are helping me writing that song for me accept they sang with me to this song it’s pouring our hearts and also we’re so proud of that song and to record it with Bradley cooper. He’s so nice and so, he played a guitar he’s really good. But I sang with him in his movies and really good acting. I wanna do same thing as lady Gaga.

    I think to this song is so good it’s about to be in relationship with family and so, when my friend Patrick wrote this song with his brother Shawn. He wrote it with him and I’m in the movie new movie, called star is born 2, then when we have our song coming out. We’re glad to performing with Shawn, and Patrick he’s so nice.

    The Shallow is this Shallow world. They want to get away from so many shallow people and live life in a more deep meaningful way.

    Both are searching to fill the emptiest in their life, perhaps it's love there are seeking. But when love appears to be within reach it seems that it's not enough. They fear the emptiness within, there is no way out, but to dive into the shallow water to end it all. Sha-ha-sha-ha meansm what will be will be. The boy dies at the end of the movie, doesn't he?

    The movie's meaning is jumping straight into love, whereas the literal meaning is just jumping into anything trust your gut it won't lead you wrong, its safe.

    I believe the shallow means, this evil world we are all trapped in and only way to escape from the ways of life on this planet. Expressing her heart.

    First impression of the song is that the couple is diving deep into love.

    A lot of people have said that The Shallows in Lady Gaga's song refers to people wanting/needing to be deeper, form deeper relationships.

    While I agree with that meaning (the song refers to being empty/needing more); I think the characters may also be referring to safety. "The Shallows" to sailors are areas where the water is not deep enough for safe navigation. Diving into the deep feels like safety to me -- as opposed to wrecking in the shallow waters.
