77 A Simple Song

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

Breathe in, breathe out; that's all there is to it really. Oh, now I can walk; left, right, left, right. Look up, down, straight ahead and occasionally behind (just in case). Now, do I go left, right or straight ahead? Follow the crowd or take the scenic route? Conform or rebel?

It was all so easy to start with.

A Simple Song

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Time it does not matter
But time is all we have
To think about

The road it has no end
Crossroads every turn
And so it goes

Once you sang
A simple song
It got confused
Went on too long

Why does the promise fade
You lie on the bed you made
Stranger than fiction
Further from the truth
Beyond imagination
Seeds have taken root
Wild as a dream could be

From black and white
To blue and red
Golden circles
Float above your head

Once you sang
A simple song
It got confused
And now it's gone
