PRINCE


Purple Rain Lyrics

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain

I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend, hey
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain

Honey, I know, I know, I know times are changin'
It's time we all reach out for something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader, but you can't seem to make up your mind
And I think you better close it and let me guide you to the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
If you know what I'm singin' about up here, come on raise your hand
Purple rain, purple rain
I only want to see you, only want to see you in the purple rain

What a song, even though it's not too vivid what he's referring to, just the way he expresses it. It's too emotional in a nice way and i fell in love with it the first time i saw the video. from South Africa with love

PURPLE RAIN IS A NOD TO THE 1989 ANTI APARTHEID PROTESTS IN WHERE S.AFRICAN POLICE SHOT PURPLE-DYED WATER OUT OF MOVING CANONS AGAINST CAPE TOWN BLACKS. If you know what I'm singin' about up here...

this is one song that reminds me that love has a lot of meanings but it is inevitable to stop yourself from experiencing it.
