The Purple Album Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Burn (6:56)
(originally by Deep Purple)

The sky is red, I don't understand,
past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
The city's a blaze, the town's on fire.
The woman's flames are reaching higher.
We were fools, we called her liar.
All I hear is "Burn!"

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm.
She said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return."
The people laughed till she said, "Burn!"
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin', we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"

You know we had no time,
we could not even try.
You know we had no time.

You know we had no time,
we could not even try.
You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don't understand,
it's past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"
2. You Fool No One (Interpolating "Itchy Fingers") (6:23)
(originally by Deep Purple)

You fool no one, waiting to see if I'm gone
So hard to see, you are taking your chances with me
If I find you with the other man, you know what I'm gonna do
You better run if you see me comin'

Soon you will fall, making mistakes like before
When you tell me lies, I can see by the look in your eyes
If you think you're gonna take me for granted
Chasin' round with all you see, I'm gonna make you live to regret it

You fool no one, waiting to see if I'm gone
So clear to see, you've had all your chances with me
You thought that you could take me for granted
But I couldn't take it no more, better run when you see me comin'
3. Love Child (4:13)
(originally by Deep Purple)

You can walk through fire
Make the north wind blow
Squeeze 'n' tease me honey
When you shake your body
You move my soul

Let me be your lover
Let me be your child
Take me through your universe
You know that when you smile
You drive me wild

Love child
Driving me wild
Love child
Always teasin' me

You can ride your pony
Day dream in fairy tales
I know is I need more
When I see you dance the seven veils

Love child
Driving me wild
Love child
Always teasin' me

You can walk through fire
Make the north wind blow
Squeeze 'n' tease me honey
When you shake your body
You move my soul

Love child
Driving me wild
Love child
Always teasin' me

Love child
Driving me wild
Love child
Oh!
Always teasin' me
Always teasin' me
4. Sail Away (Featuring "Elegy for Jon") (4:53)
(originally by Deep Purple)

If you're driftin' on an empty ocean
With no wind to fill your sail,
The future, your horizon,
It's like searchin' for the Holy Grail.
You feel there's no tomorrow
As you look into the water below.
It's only your reflection
And you still ain't got no place to go.

Time will show,
When, I don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
I'll be there someday
I'll be there someday

Oh, woman, I keep returnin'
To sing the same old song.
The story's been told, now I'm gettin' old.
Tell me, where do I belong?
I'm feel like I'm goin' to surrender,
It's hard times I've had enough.
If I could find a place to hide my face,
I believe, I could get back up.

Time will show,
When, I don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
I'll be there someday
I will be there, I'll be there someday

Time will show,
When, I don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
I'll be there someday

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
I'll be there someday
I will be there, I'll be there someday
I will be there
5. The Gypsy (5:29)
(originally by Deep Purple)

Tell me gypsy can you see me
In your crystal ball
I'm asking you what can I do
My back's against the wall
And I can't hold on much longer
So I've come to you my friend
For now my life seems at an end

I came to see you once before
One hundred years ago
You took my hand and broke the spell
That should have let me go
But my years have gone so slowly
So I'm here again my friend
For now my life is at an end

Tell me gypsy
Tell me gypsy
Tell me gypsy
Tell me gypsy

Tell me gypsy can you see me
In your crystal ball
I'm asking you what can I do
My back's against the wall
And I can't hold on much longer
So I'm here again my friend
For now my life seems at an end

Tell me gypsy
Tell me gypsy
Tell me gypsy
Tell me gypsy
6. Lady Double Dealer (3:59)
(originally by Deep Purple)

Get outta my way
I'm gettin' tired of you
There ain't no chance
Doin' what you wanna do
I've been down down down down
Got to get my feet back on the ground

Lady double dealer
Get outta my way
Lady double dealer
You got nothing to say

I ain't satisfied
Dealin' with second hand goods
You wanted somethin' for nothin'
Taking everything you could
You been 'round - I got the news
But you ain't waitin' 'round for me to lose

Lady double dealer
Get outta my way
Lady double dealer
You got nothing to say

I gave love to you
Did what you wanted me to
But all you did was bring me down
So I just had to try
Try to reason why
You took advantage of my love

Two timin' woman
Tryin' to take me for a ride
You're a hard lover honey
But you sure don't keep me satisfied
I wanna be there
To try to make you see
There ain't no woman gonna make a fool outta me

Lady double dealer
Get outta my way
Lady double dealer
You got nothing to say

I gave love to you
Did what you wanted me to
But all you did was bring me down
So I just had to try
Try to reason why
You took advantage of my love

Get outta my way
Get outta my way
Get outta my way
Get outta my way
7. Mistreated (7:39)
(originally by Deep Purple)

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been struck downhearted, baby, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing my mind, you know I have.

I've been lonely, I've been cold.
I've been looking for a woman to have and hold
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, I've been losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been looking for a woman, yeh, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated, ooh o-o-oh.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.
Oh oh oh, oh woman, oh woman, oh woman.

I've been losing my mind.
8. Holy Man (4:42)
(originally by Deep Purple)

I called to Madonna
To give me a line
She said boy what have you done
You've been passing your time with a holy man
Talking about the moon and sun
And I can't tell the difference
Between the fool and wise
Show me a river to follow
Away from all these lies

I called to the captain
To put me ashore
For it looked like no man's land
Is this the way to follow
I cried as I shook his hand
He told me had no answer
He didn't really hold the key
I am a simple man
Was all he said to me

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand

I heard my mother crying
She was calling out my name
Whisper in the dark night
Saying who's to blame
The hour glass keeps turning
With not enough sand to see
I am a holy man
So don't you bother me

I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand
I've been on my own so long
Won't you lend me a hand
I've been out in the cold too long
Won't you understand
9. Might Just Take Your Life (4:14)
(originally by Deep Purple)

I got more than I asked for,
there ain't nothin' I need.
I took all till I had more,
I'm always takin' the lead

Old man shakin' dice down on the street,
try'n to make a livin' somehow
but I'm really sure about gettin' things sorted out
and I'm gettin' ready right now

You can't hold me,
I have told you
Might just take your life,
might just take your life

I've been called by many names
and all of them are bad
I can take it all the same,
it's all I've ever had

I've got somethin' that you can't get
but one thing you can see:
gettin' there ain't easy
but it sure was hard for me

You can't hold me,
I have told you
Might just take your life,
might just take your life

Every time I take a look
there's someone close behind
They never used to make a pass,
the things that crossed their minds

Now they tell me that it's all right
and they want to be my friend
They're ridin' on my back
When is it goin' to end?

You can't hold me,
I have told you
Might just take your life,
might just take your life,
might just take your life

Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need
Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need
Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need
10. You Keep on Moving (5:06)
(originally by Deep Purple)

You keep on moving
Far away far away
You keep on moving
Far away far away

Everyday wheels are turning
And the cry still returning

Dawn will soon be breaking
The day has just begun
You put your arms around me
Like a circle 'round the sun
Dance across the seasons
To a place that no one knows
Where angels fear to tread

Dawn will soon be breaking
The day has just begun
You put your arms around me
Like a circle 'round the sun
Dance across the seasons
To a place that no one knows
Where angels fear to tread

You keep on moving
Far away far away

Everyday wheels are turning
And the cry still returning

Dawn will soon be breaking
The day has just begun
You put your arms around me
Like a circle 'round the sun
Dance across the seasons
To a place that no one knows
Where angels fear to tread
11. Soldier of Fortune (3:18)
(originally by Deep Purple)

I have often told you stories
About the way
I lived the life of a drifter
Waiting for the day
When I'd take your hand
And sing you songs
Then maybe you would say
Come lay with me love me
And I would surely stay

But I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be...
A soldier of fortune

Many times I've been a traveler
I looked for something new
In days of old
When nights were cold
I wandered without you
But those days I thought my eyes
Had seen you standing near
Though blindness is confusing
It shows that you're not here

Now I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be...
A soldier of fortune

I can hear the sound
Of a windmill goin' 'round
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune
I guess I'll always be
A soldier of fortune
12. Lay Down Stay Down (3:52)
(originally by Deep Purple)

I don't care if my lady's gone
As long as you give me just what I want
I've been losin' my direction,
Got to find a new connection

You have wasted the love I tasted,
Now I'm really gettin' hungry more and more
Been a long time, had a bad sign
Tell me what am I fighting for?

Let me know you feel it,
You know I really need it
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down

Lookin' for trouble, I guess that's right
When I was young I was taught to fight
It's been long gone since I had known,
Now I'm headin' for some more

Let me know you feel it,
You know I really need it
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down
I got something to find,
There's one thing I really need
I'm gonna tell you right now,
Lay down, stay down

Let me know you feel it,
You know I really need it
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down
I got something to find,
There's one thing I really need
I'm gonna tell you right now,
Lay down, stay down
13. Stormbringer (5:17)
(originally by Deep Purple)

Comin' out of nowhere
Drivin' like rain
Stormbringer dance
On the thunder again
Dark cloud gathering
Breaking the day
No point running
'Cause it's coming your way

Ride the rainbow
Crack the sky
Stormbringer coming
Time to die
Got to keep running
Stormbringer coming
He's got nothing you need
He's gonna make you bleed

Rainbow shaker
On a stallion twister
Bareback rider
On the eye of the sky
Stormbringer coming down
Meaning to stay
Thunder and lightning
Heading your way

Ride the rainbow
Crack the sky
Stormbringer coming
Time to die
Got to keep running
Stormbringer coming
He's got nothing you need
He's gonna make you bleed

Coming out of nowhere
Drivin' like a-rain
Stormbringer dance
On the thunder again
Dark cloud gathering
Breaking the day
No point running
'Cause it's coming your way
