Deep Down Inside of Me
Artist: I learned this at an in-person song circle, and I'm not sure of the source. Some googling says it might have been written by Adele Getty.
Lyrics: "Deep down inside of me, I've got a fire going on. Part of me wants to sing about the light, and part of me wants to cry cry cry, cause deep down inside..."
Type: Echo; the response should overlap the last syllable of each line sung by the leader
Notes: This song has a remarkable ability to emotionally devastate AND to lift up in power, both at the same time. I love the way it combines gritty grief with proclamation of hope, without making you choose one or the other.
