Verse:
The sun is sink - ing low be - hind the hill,
I loved you long a - go,  I love you still,
A - cross the years you come to me at twi - light,
To bring my loves old thrill.
 
Chorus:
When the Deep Pur - ple falls o - ver sleep - y gar - den walls,
And the stars be - gin to flick - er in the sky,
Thru the mist of a mem - o - ry you wan - der back to me,
Breath - ing my name with a sigh,
In the still of the night once a - gain I hold you tight,
Tho' you're gone, your love lives on when moon - light beams,
And as long as my heart will beat,  Lov - er,  we'll al - ways meet.
Here in my Deep Pur - ple dreams.
