43 Never a Word

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

Steve Morse brought this into the studio. Struggling to make a counter melody work for the vocals; the light dawned when I realised the tune was there all along. Then the title leapt into my car and the song was completed five minutes later.

Often, in a close relationship there is a tacit understanding.

Never a Word

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Never a word, a word so true
Passed between us, me and you
Heard you found your pot of gold
That's the story I've been told

Never a word was said in vain
Some were never said again
Some were lost in lovers' heat
Some lay fallen at our feet

All day all night
You and only you
All day all night
I think of you and only you

Never a word escaped my lips
Silenced by your fingertips
I kept my word, can you believe
All this time so hard to breathe
Hard to breathe
