95 The Power of the Moon

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

I love our green balloon. The Moon is our greatest potential source of energy; it has the power to lift oceans whilst turning us into lunatics for not using it.

The Power of the Moon

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Who am I to say things may not all be what they seem
How can I disturb the facts of life
And who am I to speak about the fabric of a dream
And who's to say that dreams cannot be right

It's the power of the moon
The power

Who am I to talk about the lunacy at hand
Burnishing the madness in my head
And who am I to mention that before it all began
Everything I heard was never said at all
It's the Power of the Moon
The power

Ah, it's a green balloon that travels so benign
On a path along the shoreline

Ah, it's a green balloon that travels so benign
It's the only thing that's keeping me in line
Oh, the tides will rise and then they fall on time
And everything on earth begins to rhyme
