Blind

Album: Deep Purple (1969)
  • I see reflections in the water
    Autumn colours, summer's daughter
    And as as the year is growing older
    I see winter on my shoulder
    I stand in the haze
    Watching stormy ripples grow on my own
    Never knew your needed
    Till I found myself standing here alone

    And in the water, such a sad face
    Slowly drowning, such a sad face
    If only I could change the seasons
    Like a poet, I've my reasons
    It started to snow in the middle of July
    Wonder why
    Never did understand you
    My sorrow is hanging in the grey sky

    In the summer days we flew to the sun
    On melting wings
    But the seasons changed to fast
    Leave us all behind
    Blind

    But then the stone fell on the water
    Putting end to summer's daughter
    And me, I turn away remembering
    All the seasons, such a sad thing
    It started to rain in the middle of the sun
    Winter's begun

    Never did understand you
    My sorrow is hanging in the grey sky

    In the summer days we flew to the sun
    On melting wings
    But the seasons changed to fast
    Leave us all behind
