62 Things I Never Said

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album Rapture of the Deep

The key to this song is the meaning you place upon the word 'it' - once you've figured that out you are well on your way to understanding what it was that I never said…

Things I Never Said

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Don't get me started
Let's get it right
No use talking about it
Deep into the night
Don't ask about the secrets I could tell
I'm going to keep them to myself

No bad decisions
No good advice
No time to think about it
Even once or twice
No second chances looking down the road
When that's the only way
Only way to go

Ah it makes me wonder
What's going on inside my head
Well could it be the pressure that I'm under
Makes me forget
The things I never said

I can't remember
I can't forget
Take it from me
There's not a moment of regret
And since the day I learned to tie my shoes
I've found it hard to spread the news

Ah it makes me wonder
What's going on inside my head
Well could it be the pressure that I'm under
Makes me forget
The things I never said

It's hard to swallow
It's hard to take
When I think about it now
My knees begin to shake
It never came to me to mention at the time
To tell the truth it never crossed my mind
