Second Movement
Deep Purple & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Lyrics


How can I see when the light is gone out?
How can I hear when you speak so silently?
More than enough is never too much
Hold out a hand I'm so out of touch

Do unto me as your heart would have you do
Words in my head can I get the message through?
Sword in my hand can cut through the wood
Peace in my heart can soften the mood
What shall I do when they stand smiling at me?
Look at the floor and be oh, so cool
Oh, so cool?

How shall I know when to start singing my song?
What shall I do if they all go wrong?
What shall I do?

What shall I do when they stand laughing at me?
Walk through the door and be oh so cool?

How shall I know when to stop singing my song?
What shall I do when it all goes wrong?

ian gillan sounds like an angel fallen from the sky

Euan Elliott

The best live vocal of his career in my opinion. A proud moment for their parents I imagine, who were present at the venue.

Okay, I've had a quick flick through the comments and not seen anything to this effect so I am going to put it here as I have always plugged this one ever since I first heard it...

Listen closely to the music to hear the real genius of John Lord. Gillan stands up, and as he is preparing to sing, the time signature changes. The moment the fifth member joins the piece for the first time, we get a 5/4 time signature. It is one of the most difficult time signatures to write in, but he didn't just do it to show he could do it, he did it to fit in with the music and the composition... he did it to introduce the fifth piece of the outfit. Synergy of form and content. And it sounds amazing too. Take your hat off to the guy, and may he rest in peace.
