RIP: The Prince of Purple rain

Prince once said, I used to tease a lot of journalists early on, because I wanted them to concentrate on the music and not so much on me coming from a broken home. … I don’t live in the past. I don’t play my old records for that reason. I make a statement, then move on to the next.’

The mysterious Prince never cared about all these questions and he lived his life to the fullest.

He replied to criticisms in his own style. For instance, once he said: ‘”When I became a symbol, all the writers were cracking funnies, but I was the one laughing. I knew I’d be here today, feeling each new album is my first.”

Now here check out the annotation of Prince’s charming lyrics of one of his most popular songs: ‘Purple Rain’ (Video at the bottom of the page)

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to 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
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 changing
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
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 singing about up here
C’mon, raise your hand

Purple rain, purple rain
I only want to see you
Only want to see you
In the purple rain

Long live Prince!
