Deep Purple’s April

April is so long gone, so you know that this is an overdue post. It was lying around in my drafts.

The song belonged to the  album  Deep Purple and had the original band members for the last time. It was surprisingly, the third album by the band.The Songwriters Are Blackmore, Ritchie; Lord, Jon.

The band described “April” as a personal evocation of a beautiful and sad month(for them).

Following are the lyrics to this beautiful song. YouTube link follows.

April is a cruel time
Even though the sun may shine
And world looks in the shade as it slowly comes away
Still falls the April rain
And the valley’s filled with pain
And you can’t tell me quite why
As i look up to the grey sky
Where it should be blue
Grey sky where I should see you
Ask why, why it should be so
I’ll cry, say that I don’t know

Maybe once in a while I’ll forget and I’ll smile
But then the feeling comes again of an April without end
Of an April lonely as they come
In the dark of my mind I can see all too fine
But there is nothing to be done when I just can’t feel the sun
And the springtime’s the season of the night

Grey sky where it should be blue
Grey sky where I should see you
Ask why, why it should be so
I’ll cry, say that I don’t know
I don’t know
