Perfect Strangers

Can you remember,
remember my name
As I flow through your life
A thousand oceans I have flown
And cold spirits of ice
All my life
I am the echo of your past

I am returning the echo of a point in time
Distant faces shine
A thousand warriors I have known
And laughing as the spirits appear
All your life... shadows of another day

And if you hear me talking on the wind
You've got to understand
We must remain perfect strangers

I know I must remain inside this
silent well of sorrow
A strand of silver hanging through the sky
Touching more than you see
The voice of ages in your mind
Is aching with the dead of the night
Precious life - Your tears are lost in falling rain

~ Deep Purple

  2. Had you been to the deep purple concert in bangalore last December? The riff that is played in this song still rings in my head! I love this song.

    And if you hear me talking on the wind
    You've got to understand
    We must remain perfect strangers

  3. Yeah - DT covered this. But LaBrie's voice sucks!

    I missed that concert :( - hope I get to see the old classic band live sometime
