Burn

by Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Ian Paice and David Coverdale
The sky is red, I don't understand
Past midnight, I still see the land
People are sayin' the woman is damned
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand
The city's a blaze, the town's on fire
The woman's flames are reaching higher
We were fools we called her liar
All I hear is "Burn!"

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm
She said: Curse you all! You'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return
The people laughed till she said "Burn!"
Warning came, no one cared
Earth was shakin', we stood and stared
When it came, no one was spared
Still I hear "Burn!"

You know we had no time
We could not even try
You know we had no time

You know we had no time
We could not even try
You know we had no time

The sky is red, I don't understand
Past midnight, I still see the land
People are sayin' the woman is damned
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand
Warning came, no one cared
Earth was shakin', we stood and stared
When it came, no one was spared
Still I hear "Burn!"

Might just take your life

by Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Ian Paice and David Coverdale
I got more than I asked for
There ain't nothin' I need
I took all till I had more
I'm always takin' the lead

Old man shakin' dice down on the street
Tryin' to make a livin' somehow
But I'm really sure about
Gettin' things sorted out
An' I'm gettin' ready right now

You can't hold me, I have told you
Might just take your life
Might just take your life

I've been called by many names
And all of them are bad
I can take it all the same
It's all I've ever had

I've got somethin' that you can't get
But one thing you can see
Gettin' there ain't easy
But it sure was hard for me

You can't hold me, I have told you
Might just take your life
Might just take your life

Every time I take a look
There's someone close behind
They never used to make a pass
The things that crossed their minds

Now they tell me that it's alright
And they want to be my friend
They're ridin' on my back
When is it goin' to end?

You can't hold me, I have told you
Might just take your life
Might just take your life
Might just take your life

Got more than I asked for
Got more than I need
Got more than I asked for
Got more than I need...

Lay down, stay down

by Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Ian Paice and David Coverdale
I don't care if my lady's gone
As long as you give me just what I want
I've been losin' my direction
Got to find a new connection

You have wasted the love I tasted
Now I'm really gettin' hungry, more and more
Been a long time, had a bad sign
Tell me what am I fighting for?

Let me know you feel it
You know I really need it
Keep on pushin' for more
Lay down, stay down

I got something to find
There's one thing I really need
I'm gonna tell you right now
Lay down, stay down

Lookin' for trouble, I guess that's right
When I was young I was taught to fight
It's been long gone since I had known
Now I'm headin' for some more

Let me know you feel it
You know I really need it
Keep on pushin' for more
Lay down, stay down

I got something to find
There's one thing I really need
I'm gonna tell you right now
Lay down, stay down

Let me know you feel it
You know I really need it
Keep on pushin' for more
Lay down, stay down

I got something to find
There's one thing I really need
I'm gonna tell you right now
Lay down, stay down

Sail away

by Ritchie Blackmore and David Coverdale
If you're driftin' on an empty ocean
With no wind to fill your sail
The future, your horizon
It's like searchin' for the Holy Grail
You feel there's no tomorrow
As you look into the water below
It's only your reflection
And you still ain't got no place to go

Time will show, when I don't know
Sail away tomorrow, sailin' far away
To find it, steal or borrow
I'll be there someday yeah hey-yeaeh

Ah woman, I keep returnin' to sing the same old song
The story's been told
Now I'm gettin' old
Tell me where do I belong?
Feel like I'm goin' to surrender
Hard times I've had enough
If I could find a place to hide my face
I believe I could get back up

Time will show, when I don't know
Sail away tomorrow, sailin' far away
To find it, steal or borrow
An' I'll be there someday yeah hey-yeaeh

Sail away tomorrow, sailin' far away
To find it, steal or borrow
And I'll be there someday yeah hey-yeaeh

Sail away tomorrow, sailin' far away
To find it, steal or borrow
But I'll be there someday yeah yeah...

Time to go
You've got no place to go
Hard times I've had enough

You Fool No One

by Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Ian Paice and David Coverdale
You fool no one
Waiting to see if I'm gone
So hard to see
You are taking your chances with me
If I find you with some other man
You know what I'm gonna do
Better run if you see me comin'
Aaaah

Soon you will fall
Making mistakes like before
When you tell me lies
I can see by the look in your eyes
If you think you're gonna take me for granted
Chasin' 'round with all you see
Gonna make you live to regret it
Aaaah

You fool no one
Waiting to see if I'm gone
So clear to see
You've had all your chances with me
You thought that you could take me for granted
But i couldn't take it no more
Better run when you see me comin'
Aaaah

What's Goin' On Here

by Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Ian Paice and David Coverdale
Roll me over slowly I've been drinkin' all night
Help me make a move, I can't stand the light
Wake me, shake me, don't slam the door
I ain't been so bad, I just can't recall
Spent the night chasin' up a listed old flame
Lyin' on the floor, I can't remember her name

I can't stay here
There's something wrong here
What's goin' on here?

Went downtown, had a long way to go
How I got there? Well, I don't know
Found myself sittin' in a west side bar
Mmm tried to leave but I could not go far
High class woman tryin' to give me a line
Should have left early when I felt so fine

I can't stay here
There's something wrong here
What's goin' on here?

When they closed up the bar, you know, they left me for dead
I can't remember a thing I said
Must have called the police to take me away
They said forty days, now I've got to pay
Spent the night chasin' up a listed old flame
Lyin' on the floor, I can't remember my name
I can't get together while they're messin' with me
Keep on lookin' 'round, tell me where can I be?

I can't stay here
There's something wrong here
What's goin' on here?

I've been mistreated, I've been abused
I've been struck downhearted baby, I've been confused
'Cos I know yes I know I've been mistreated yeah-eah
