(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)
The golden light about you show me where you're from
The magic in your eye bewitches all you gaze upon
You stand up on your hill and behop all around you
They wonder where you're from oh yeah
They wonder where I found you
Oh my love it's a long way
Where you're from it's a long way

I tried to understand you, I tried to love you right
The way you smile and touch me always sets my heart alight
Your lips are like a fire burning through my soul
And people ask me where you're from
They really wanna know
Oh my soul it's a long way
Where you're from it's a long way

Magic woman wreckin' up my soul
Things you tell me have never been told
Magic woman I don't know
Electric before me I love you so I love you so

You're racing like a fireball dancing like a ghost
You're gemini and I don't know which one I like the most
My head is getting broken and my mind is getting bust
But now I'm coming with you down the road of golden dust
Oh my love it's a long way
Where you're from it's a long way
next song previous song Deep Purple: Live At The Olympia '96 Deep Purple: Deep Purple In Concert Deep Purple: Machine Head Maybe I'm A Leo
(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)
Peeping round the door I got a big surprise
Couldn't see a thing but open skies
They've taken her away where is she now

Wish that she was here wish she'd hold my hand
Maybe she could laugh maybe understand
Why was I so cruel where is she now

Acting like a fool had to make her cry
Maybe I'm a Leo but I ain't a lion
I'm hurting oh so bad, I want her now
next song previous song Deep Purple: Live At The Royal Albert Hall Deep Purple: Total Abandon - Live In Australia '99 Deep Purple: Live At The Olympia '96 Deep Purple: Purpendicular Ted The Mechanic
(Gillan/Glover/Lord/Morse/Paice)
He was playing pool and drinking beer
Nothing more'n the occasional tear
But this man's life goes on
He gets greased all over from time to time
At the strip joint, where we met
He said: "Hi! My name is Ted
See that one over there, that ball of thunder?
Every time she goes Vavoom, I wiggle in my chair
Eh oh can I buy you a beer?"
Erh what a guy!

"Well I've had a few myself" he said
"But I never quit when I'm ahead
Too many rules and regulations, stupid laws designed by fools behind closed doors
And another thing I won't discuss is religion, it always causes a fight"
Vavoom
"There she goes again"
Huh ah how does she do that, Ted?

Yeah! Aaaah haah!

And he told me of those injustices that he had suffered in his life
His wife and kids and boss and dogs and neighbours raising cain and causing strife
They were forever whining, bleating, howling, yapping, screeching, moaning, crying
Vavoom
He fed them well
Aaaah he keep them warm
Ted - Ted the Mechanic

Thing about Ted, didn't really care
Nothing much got in his hair
The beauty of it was that he was right
He was big as a truck, fast as a door (what's that?)
He was always right
The banjo player took a hike
And what's that song I used to like
Vavoom
Big as a truck
Uh he was fast as a door
Ted - What a guy!
Mmm top man, our Ted
Top man, our Ted
Top man, our Ted
next song previous song Deep Purple: Live At The Royal Albert Hall Deep Purple: Total Abandon - Live In Australia '99 Deep Purple: Live At The Olympia '96 Deep Purple: Machine Head Pictures Of Home
(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)
Somebody's shouting up at a mountain
Only my own words return
Nobody's up there, it's a deception
When will I ever learn?

I'm alone here with emptiness, eagles and snow
Unfriendliness chilling my body
And whispering pictures of home

Wondering blindly, how can they find me?
Maybe they don't even know
My body is shaking, anticipating
The call of the black footed crow-ouh

I'm alone here with emptiness, eagles and snow
Unfriendliness chilling my body
And taunting with pictures of home

Here in this prison of my own making
Year after day I have grown
Into a herobut there's no worship
Where have they hidden my throne-ouh?

I'm alone here with emptiness, eagles and snow
Unfriendliness chilling my body
And screaming out pictures of home

(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)
Black night is not right
I don't feel so bright
I don't care to sit tight
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home

I don't need a dark tree
I don't want a rough sea
I can't feel, I can't see
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home

Black night, black night
I don't need black night
I can't see dark night
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
That I'm free, free to be me
Black night is a long way from home
next song previous song Deep Purple: Live At The Olympia '96 Deep Purple: Purpendicular Cascades: I'm Not Your Lover
(Gillan/Glover/Lord/Morse/Paice)
You know I'm not your lover now
It might as well be said
And then you say you're leaving
Or maybe I'm just hanging on a thread
I gave you everything
It didn't seem that much
You gave me your opinion
With the usual heavy handed touch

What can I do about the rain that falls on you
I'm not your lover now
I'm not your lover now

What can I do about the rain that falls on you
I'm not your lover now
I'm not your lover now

My head is spinning endlessly
My senses won't react
Then I'm falling through a black hole
Part of me is never coming back
How you can lose a thing you never really had
And you always hurt the one you love
And you just love to hurt me bad

What can I do about the rain that falls on you
I'm not your lover now
I'm not your lover now

What can I do about the sky that falls on you
I'm not your lover
I'm not your lover

You really must be going now
By god, is that the time?
Let me put you out of my misery
They call it being cruel to be kind
I only insult my friends
The rest can go to hell
You can read it anyway you want
Oh well, you're not so bad yourself

What can I do about the rain that falls on you
I'm not your lover now
I'm not your lover now

What can I do about the rain that falls on you
I'm not your lover now
I'm not your lover now

What can I do about the rain that falls on you
I'm not your lover now
I'm not your lover now

What can I do about the rain that falls on you
I'm not your lover now
I'm not your lover now
next song previous song Deep Purple: Live At The Royal Albert Hall Deep Purple: Total Abandon - Live In Australia '99 Deep Purple: Live At The Olympia '96 Deep Purple: Purpendicular Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming
(Gillan/Glover/Lord/Morse/Paice)
While you were out... the message says
You left a number an' I tried to call
But they wrote it down in a perfect Spanish scrawl
Perfect Spanish scrawl

Yet again, I'm missing you
King size bed in a hotel someplace
I hear your name, I see your face
I see your face

Yeah...
Back street dolls and the side door Johnnies
Wide eyed boys with their bags full of money
Back in the alley going bang to the wall
Tied to the tail of a midnight crawl
Heaven wouldn't be so high, I know
If the times gone by hadn't been so low
Best laid plans come apart at the seams
Shatter all my dreams

Sometimes I feel like screaming, close my eyes
It's times like this my head goes down
The only thing I know is the name of this town
Name of this town

Yet again, I'm missing you
Won't be long, I'm coming home
'Til that distant time, I'll be moving on
I'll be moving on

Back street dolls and the side door Johnnies
And the wide eyed boys with their bags full of money
Back in the alley going bang to the wall
Tied to the tail of a midnight crawl
Heaven wouldn't be so high, I know
If the times gone by hadn't been so low
Best laid plans come apart at the seams
Shatter my dreams

It's all in the mind
Ouh it's all in the mind
It's all in the mind
It's all in the mind
Ouh

Back street dolls and the side door Johnnies
   It's all in the mind
Wide eyed boys with their bags full of money
Back in the alley going bang to the wall
   Aaah...
Tied to the tail of a midnight crawl
Heaven wouldn't be so high, I know
   All in the mind
If the times gone by hadn't been so low
Best laid plans come apart at the seams
   Aaah...
Shatter my dreams
next song previous song Deep Purple: Total Abandon - Live In Australia '99 Deep Purple: Live At The Olympia '96 Deep Purple: Come Hell Or High Water Deep Purple: Nobody's Perfect Deep Purple: Last Concert In Japan Deep Purple: Who Do We Think We Are Woman From Tokyo
(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)
Fly into the rising sun,
Faces, smiling everyone
Yeah, she is a whole new tradition
I feel it in my heart

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me

Talk about her like a Queen
Dancing in a Eastern Dream
Yeah, she makes me feel like a river
That carries me away

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me

But I'm at home and I just don't belong ...

So far away from the garden we love
She is what moves in the soul of a dove
Soon I shall see just how black was my night
When we're alone in Her City of light

Rising from the neon gloom
Shining like a crazy moon
Yeah, she turns me on like a fire
I get high

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me
next song previous song Deep Purple: Live At The Olympia '96 Deep Purple: Fireball No One Came
(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)
Maybe it's because I'm only starting
That I think it won't take too long
Maybe it's because I can see you laughing
That I think you've got it wrong
Maybe I could be like Robin Hood
Like and outlaw dressed all in green
Someone said what's he gonna turn out like
And someone else said never mind
Well I was big and bold and more than twice as old
As all the cats I'd ever seen
I grew my hair and bought a suit
Of shiny white or was it cream
I shook and shivered danced and quivered
And stood on a mountain top
No one came from miles around and said
Man your music is really hot

Well I knew what they meant because I was a freak
My throat was tired and worn
My pretty face just looked out of place
As they poured on the scorn
I wrote on yellow paper from a man who was the king
He said my boy we'll have some crazy scenes
There weren't any scenes at all like he was talkin' about
He must've been the king of queens
Well I could write a million songs about the things I've done
But I could never sing them so they'd never get sung
There's a law for the rich and one for the poor and there's another one for sing

It's die young and live much longer
Spend your money and sit and wonder
No one came for miles around
And said man your music is really funky

I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star
Nobody knows who's real and who's fakin'
Everyone's shouting out loud
It's only the glitter and shine that gets through
Where's my Robin Hood outfit
Well I've come and I've gone before you wink an eye
No one ever cared enought to say goodbye
The money's good and the time you have
Fun and games galore
But you spend your money and lie in bed forgotten
And you wonder what you did it for
No one came from miles around
And said man who's he?

(Gillan/Glover/Lord/Morse/Paice)
Yey-yeah!

Put your money down, take your choice
That's the way it is every time with these boys
And you sense no shame and you feel no disgrace
Somebody wins, somebody loses - it's a dirty dirty race
Oh my life, it's a dog's life
Yeah...

One empty Monday out of the blue
Took a good luck turn and started something new
Out of the gutter, out of the rain
Out of my head and I'm feeling no pain
Oh my life, it's a dog's life

Mmm ah ouh...

Ducking in the shadows, diving in the dark
Rolling with the punches, striking at the heart
Touching all the senses, breaking those taboos
Bursting at the seams, blowing all my fuses

The turning of a page, burning of a book
If you're talking out of turn, just the way you look

When the time is right but the shape is wrong
And you find yourself where you don't belong
Back to reality, back on the line
Mmm back into this and you'll feel no pain
Oh my life, you wanna do it once again, ooh
