Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

If I wasn't sitting in the middle of a coffee shop, I'd be bawling my eyes out. I'm gonna go listen later and cry. The video was FANTASTIC, and especially the piano... Wow. Just wow.

I love it and think it's absolutely beautiful but of course, I'm totally un-apologetically biased. shrug

The very first and most important thing I noticed is...NO DRUMS. Not a kick. Not a snare. eek So this ain't about her strengths, she put her heart out there. touched

The lyrics:

“Girl Meets Boy”

Written by Sheila E. & Mychael Gabriel

VERSE I
I was just a girl
And when I saw your face
You were just a boy

But you rocked my world
And deep inside
I know that I did the same

CHORUS I
I let your love rain down on me
I let you love rain on me

VERSE II
Yesterday
A memory we’ll cherish
Or is this a dream?
I don’t wanna wake up
I wanna be with you
Welcome to my world

When you left – it rained down on me
When you left – it rained on me

VERSE III
You were just a boy
And when you saw my face
I was just a girl

But I rocked your world
And somewhere deep inside
You know you did the same

OUTRO
Just a boy
I was just a girl
Just a boy
Just a girl

I let your love
Rain on me
I let your love
Rain on me

touched

thumbs up! BTW, I totally love your signature. I've found myself saying that line quite often since Prince physically left us because it reminds me of the good times and that absolutely comforts me. hug

So true. I liked (well, not liked but you know what I mean) seeing the tears roll down her face. It shows how much this really has hit her, and how much he truly meant to her. One of the few things that made me tear up since his death.

It's beautiful.

But, I did not know Prince was her former fiancé..?

Well I did, but I think I read somewhere that some questioned if it was serious when he asked her during the concert? Guess it was.

I was watching UTCM the other day to cheer me up (I had a REALLY bad day) and I just couldn't help it, I had to put it as my signature, because it's what he would've said to all of us, whether he was 57 or 87. heart heart heart heart heart heart heart (*Notice I put 7 hearts* wink )

Didn't she say it was devastating, at the PP memorial service, to hold the urn with remains in it? For someone who was still loving him, I cannot imagine her grief.

I loved it! Cried thru the entire song. It is very touching. The loss of Prince is still impacting me.

Oh good Lord. I had no idea that she held his remains. I can't even imagine. Holding the ashes of your best friend; someone you love with your whole heart; someone who "used to be." Someone who was so full of life. I would've been on the ground sobbing uncontrollably.

I just noticed she is barefoot in this video, like she (they) all were last night. Is this something she has always done, or are they making a statement?
