    Hi, guys!

    "And you don't know what you did to me
    Blind, numb, dumb, rolling deep..."

    How could anybody know if it is correct? We don't know what meaning you intend.

    not a teacher

    It's not really clear what you mean by "rolling deep". It's not a natural English expression.

    Perhaps something like "lost in the depths" might work. This suggests that you are lost in the depths of despair or confusion because of the other person.

    It sounds like poetry, and with poetry you never know for sure exactly what it means.

    In the 'hood", "rolling deep" can mean moving around with a number of "associates".
