Purple Rain

I watched Purple Rain Saturday night. It brought back so many memories. I remember playing the soundtrack, which was an actual album. I knew all the lyrics to every song on this album. That was not necessarily a good thing since I was only 10 when the movie aired. And one of the songs in particular was something that a 10 year old should never sing. “I knew a girl named a I guess you could say she was a sex fiend. Met her in hotel lobby....” Should not have been repeated by me at 10. Did I know what it meant? NO

Watching the movie reminded me of how much my mom loved Prince. She used to jokingly say that Prince was her husband. I use to imagine that Prince was my dad, well if she could say that he was her husband…LOL. This is my only memory of my mom’s taste in music. I wanted to write this down so I would always be reminded of her love for Prince it helped to form my love for him too.

Here are the lyrics to Purple Rain:
I never meant 2 cause u any sorrow
I never meant 2 cause u any pain
I only wanted 2 one time see u laughing
I only wanted 2 see u laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain

I only wanted 2 see u bathing in the purple rain

I never wanted 2 be your weekend lover
I only wanted 2 be some kind of friend
Baby I could never steal u from another
Its such a shame our friendship had 2 end

Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain

I only wanted 2 see u underneath the purple rain

Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing
Its time we all reach out 4 something new
That means u 2
U say u want a leader
But u cant seem 2 make up your mind
I think u better close it
And let me guide u 2 the purple rain

Purple rain purple rain

I only want 2 see u, only want 2 see u
In the purple rain.
