Lyrics verse:
THE SUN IS SINKING LOW
BEHIND THE HILL,
I LOVED YOU LONG AGO,
I LOVE YOU STILL.
ACROSS THE YEARS
YOU COME TO ME AT TWILIGHT
TO BRING ME LOVE'S OLD THRILL.

Chorus:
WHEN THE DEEP PURPLE FALLS
OVER SLEEPY GARDEN WALLS,
AND THE STARS BEGIN TO FLICKER
IN THE SKY,
THROUGH THE MIST OF MEMORY
YOU WANDER BACK TO ME,
BREATHING MY NAME WITH A SIGH.
IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT
ONCE AGAIN I HOLD YOU TIGHT,
THOUGH YOU'RE GONE,
YOUR LOVE LIVES ON
WHEN MOONLIGHT BEAMS.
AND AS LONG
AS MY HEART WILL BEAT,
LOVER, WE'LL ALWAYS MEET
HERE IN MY DEEP PURPLE DREAMS.
