"Salisbury" as written by and Ken Hensley....
Somewhere in your eyes
That very special glow
Something drawing me
To where I do not know
I never really thought
That I would lose myself
Now I'm going faster
Than anybody else

You move without a sound
And touch me with your hand
Just like the rain that fondles
Every grain of sand
This thing we're gonna do
It's just for you and me
I'm gonna make it good
Good as it can be

Your kiss is sweeter now
Your breath is getting warm
We must take our time
And last it through til dawn
I wonder will it be
Oh, I expect it to
There have been other girls
No-one else like you

I feel a power here
I never felt before
And I begin to see
What drives us to want more
Oh, girl of all my dreams
Please tell me if I'm wrong
Because I've been blue
But we belong

As time passed and all too fast
I just knew we couldn't last
And I guessed that the end
Was near at hand
Though we tried our love inside
It just crumpled up and died
What went wrong
I will never understand

You tell me why
Alone again
How could you leave me
Alone again
I don't want to be
Alone again

There's a line in a rhyme
I was going to send to you
It says, "All that is to be
Will surely be"
So oh, though you had to go
'Cause you needed someone new
Is there still a chance
That you'll come back to me
I want you back you see

Alone again
How could you leave me
Alone again
How could you leave me
Alone again
I don't want to be alone again

Somewhere in your eyes
That very special glow
Something drawing me
To where I do not know
I never really thought
That I would lose myself
But now I'm going faster
Than anybody else

You move without a sound
And touch me with your hand
Just like the waves that fondle
Every little grain of sand
This thing we're gonna do
It's just for you and me
And I'm gonna make it good
Just you wait and see

    General CommentThis song is better than good. It is fabulous! The lyrical love story, eventual failure, and hope for return is so wonderfully penned. Congratulations Ken Hensley on a masterpiece. This was the first with full orchestra. This lp was a slight departure from the first raw energy lp, but I recall getting blown away by what we felt was tremendous progress both lyrically and musically. Ken Hensley penned most of this lp. In Salisbury cut credit should be given to Mick Box for the awesome guitar work. The chord progression is simple 4 chords, but the lead riffs, especially the three near the end are mind blowing. His contribution to this, which really should be considered their signature song, is magnificent. If you listen closely you can even hear when he hits the foot button just before ripping it up. Both thumbs up for this cut even more than 40 years after I first heard it, I am still impressed.
