"The Spanish Archer" as written by and Ritchie/glover Blackmore....
Well there must have been a reason
for the smile that you had upon your face last night
Are you the cat that got the cream
Did you lick your lips did you close your eyes
Can you imagine how it feels
It's so hard to reveal
Oh I can't get through and I'm falling
I'm getting out, I'm losing ground
The Spanish archer's gonna bring you down

is there someone somewhere waiting in the wings
to take my place
Let's not drag it out like a Cagney death scene
In this season of change it's not hard to explain
Like the leaves on the trees I'm falling
And as you turn, don't look away
The Spanish archer's gonna make you pay

Do you remember when the sky was blue
we used to talk for miles
And now we drive along in this thundering silence
It's such an obvious lie with that easy smile of yours
I'm letting go and I'm falling
I'm getting out, losing ground
The Spanish archer's gonna bring you down

Well is there something I can say as we stumble to the edge have we gone too far
Why don't we call it a day before we call it a nightmare darlin'
If we made a mistake then all that it takes to be free
Is the wave of a hand and you're falling
And as you turn, don't look away
The Spanish archer's gonna make you pay
