Deeper Well  
Hey! Wow, it's my first post on the FMA community . . Um, go me! [/lurk]

I'm just posting because I had a moment of serendipity while doing my History homework (I'm sure that never happens to the rest of you) because iTunes threw a song at me which, to my mind, fits Ed perfectly.

I'll post the full lyrics below. It's called "Deeper Well" by Emmylou harris, and it's all dark and kind of primal. Interesting. What do you think? Does it remind you of Ed, or am I just off somewhere?

Deeper Well
The sun burned hot, it burned my eyes
Burned so hot, I thought I'd died
Thought I'd died and gone to Hell
Looking for the water from a deeper well.

Well, looking for the water from a deeper well.

I was ready for the love, I was ready for the money
Ready for the blood and ready for the honey
Ready for the winning, ready for the bell
Ready for the water from a deeper well.

Well, I found some love and I found some money
I found that blood would drip form the honey
Found I had a thirst that I could not quell
Looking for the water from the deeper well.

Well, looking for the water from a deeper well.

Well, I did it for kicks, and I did for hate
I did it for lust, and I did it for faith
Did it for need, and I did it for love
Addiction stayed on tight like a glove.

So I ran with the moon and I ran with the night
And the three of us were a terrible sight
Nipple to the bottle to the gun to the cell
To the bottom of a hole of a deeper well.

Well, looking for the water form a deeper well.

Well, I rocked with the cradle and I rolled with the rage
I shook those walls and I rattled that cage
Took my trouble down a dead end trail
Reaching out a hand for a holier grail.

Hey there, Mama, did you carry that load?
Did you tell your baby about the bend in the road?
'Bout the rebel yell, 'bout the one that fell
Looking for the water from a deeper well?

Well, looking for the water from a deeper well
Well, looking for the water from a deeper well,
Well . . .

I drank the water from a deeper well . . .

This song is, to my knowledge, on two albums: "Wrecking Ball", by Emmylou Harris, and also the first Lilith Fair soundtrack. That version is a little angrier, more rock style, more like I imagine Ed.

I swear I've heard this somewhere -.-;...

I think it fits him, too XD

Addiction stayed on tight like a glove.

I'm sorry. Was I the only one who laughed at this, found it completely out of place, and that it sounded like a third grade rhyme? -.-; I'm sorry. The rest of the lyrics are so good and then all the sudden you see "Tight like a glove" ... XD

Yeah . . . Unfortunately, there aren't too many words that rhyme with 'love', are there?

*tries to think of them* glove, above, dove . . . I guess 'tight like a glove' works as well as any.
