Song title: Purple Haze
(Hendrix) by Jimi Hendrix
Purple Haze was in my brain
Lately things don't seem the same
Actin' funny but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky
Purple Haze all around
Don't know if I'm coming up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me
Purple Haze was in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You've got me blowing, blowing my mind
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?
