You had your very first role in Summer of the 17th Doll
Backstage you were gracious while you removed your makeup
I heard your first confession with a stirring in my vestments
Like a schoolboy learning a lesson, ooh you keep me guessing
Yeah actress and bishop
You came to church on Sunday dressed like you were sunbathing
At Vespers I was blushing, the sermon I was rushing
Afterwards we met up, finger crooked into a teacup
Much too hot to handle, the whole bell book and candle
Yeah actress and bishop

David Coverdale, I felt the connection
Your brother knew my brother
But he never mentioned anything about you
Guess he had his reasons too
David Coverdale, I bought your album
Right off the counter at the service station
Driving through the night with you
Gave me some idea of what you're going through
I'm moving on, you're moving on
The best is behind us but we are strong, so strong
David Coverdale, I'm searching for meaning
Trawling around the net on my own of an evening
I think there's something more, don't you?
People like us, we've got to break through
I'm moving on, you're moving on
The best years behind us but we are strong, so strong
David Coverdale, I'm at the airport
Have you got a driver you can send for me?
I'm in a bar at LAX
Your place isn't shown on any tourist maps
David Coverdale
