Deep Purple - Clearly Quite Absurd Lyrics




After all we said today
The strangest thought occurred
I feel I ought to tell you
But it's clearly quite absurd
Wouldn't it be wonderful
If you could read my mind
Imagine all the stuff
That we could leave behind
How many words you waste
Before you're understood
Or simply sow some seeds
You'd do it if you could
Let me take a moment
Of your time
Inside you mind

I know what you're thinking
But I don't know what to say
The turmoil and the conflict
You don't have to feel that way
Look into my eyes
And feel my hand upon your heart
Holding us together
Not tearing us apart
How many words we waste
To justify a crime
Compare it to an act of love
That really takes no time
Why not take a moment
Of your time
Inside your mind

  13. MacRoby

    Dopo Wested Sunsets questa la ritengo una delle più romantiche e dalle sonorità magnifiche. I Deep Purple non si smentiscono mai ...

  14. Gianluigi De Santis

    Bettega aveva la fisicità e la duttilità tattica di van basten ed il tocco di florian albert

  15. MacRoby

    Bellissima!

  16. СИНЯК ШВАЙШТАЙНЕР

    the old guard ...

  17. batebatev

    the surprise!!!

  18. Marc Moingeon

    It's definitely one of their best songs, the music being clearly written by Steve Morse... it's his typical style of ballads... with that crescendo in the progression... And Ian Gillan is good on it...

  19. German Germanov

    Magnetic song. Thank you!

  20. Diego C

    One of the most beautiful song of Deep Purple! Clearly AWESOME!!!

    Diego C

    @Jan Machacek My opinion.

  21. Kuba Jasiński

    new blind man cries

  22. Woody Jagla

  23. Paul Davies

    thanks for all the great tunes of my life onwards and upwards boys

  24. rob s

  25. fiol edmario

    solo MERAVIGLIOSA

  26. South Nest

    klass 999 ----- I grow up on this song in my ,,South Nest'''

  27. Adream withinadream

    Deep Purple is soon in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame and will in 2016 release a new album. I am glad they keep on going!

  28. Federico Ippoliti

    mi fa piangere (makes me cry).......Anna Enza

  29. Federico Ippoliti

    mi fa piangere (makes me cry)......................

    Ami Dana

    Makes me also cry every time. Beautiful, and very special.

  30. Kevin Bolger

    what can I say about this one, one of those you loose yourself in

  31. abhineet sharma

    when you cannot, even after rampant consumerism, confuse your human value with the price a Human Resource Manager seeks to put on you, it's 'clearly quite absurd'.

  32. Mike Haase

    I admire that Steve Morse (it must be him), elegant, reflectic touch. Reminds me of his solo stuff, also some Kansas themes. Finally, DAT voice and lyrics by Gillan, who definitely seems like a good man - not just another hard-rock voice. Love this way of music feeling.

    Mariyan Atanassov

    Perfect evaluation !!!

  33. Domingo Silva

    Es una balada conpuesta con el corazon  magnifica

  34. Ralf Stormbringer

    The end of your great era..

  35. AarVee Official

    Simply superb, no doubt they r one of the best bands I've ever heard.

  36. charles fitze

    I am clearly quite absurd

  37. Domingo Silva

    lo mejor de deep  purple

  38. thespotlightkid

    It's pretty unbelievable that at this stage of their career they are making brilliant songs such as this.

  39. Renata. Korecka

    Kocham  ten utwór i Gillana

  40. gemma faulkner

    I'm 16 from the uk i listen to deep purple on a regular basis i'm going to see them in october and i can't wait! :)

    Mark Haus

    Great taste in music young man. This is coming from a 62 Year old Deep Purple fan. I've been a Purple fan since junior high school many years ago.

  41. Pannkakaize

    I love this song so much

  42. Alex Taferner

    ha ha- I did not think about any answer to my comment...but I think I know what u mean, deleting your 1st comment is a good idea. These guys are 100% non- commercial...and if u r one of the lucky guys this kind of sound makes u fly in zero gravity^^. For any reason I cannot leave a link here, so browse for SP23...
    . U can find a lot of other tracks related to them and their friends. Have a nice time and give tekno a chance!^^

  43. Karen LY

    a beautiful song, I love it, Gillan, you are the best !

  44. DamienE11

    In a perfect world this would have 200 million views and you-know-who 13,000

  45. Anas Mustafa

  46. Pablo Chemin

    What a great sound....what a great band!!!!!

  47. Lorenzo Di Ermenegildo

    fantastic song

  48. rosskolnikov

    One of their bests songs . . . right up there with ANY of the classics. What a beautiful progression.

    Kim Christiansen

    Some exeptional chord progressions in there.. Some of them I have never heard in hard rock before. It is more fusion like in the progrssions

  49. Renny Tsolova

    Awesome ballad! Thanx for sharing!
