Found a strand of your hair by the bathroom window. How am I ever gonna get you off my mind?

Excuse me but is this really Goodbye? (listening to this the week of his passing would destroy me cause it was my way of saying goodbye)

The size of the bed now seems like the biggest I’ve ever known.

That sweet wind was you

Your gonna see me - MPLSound version, the last time he says it.

At least, they won't wanna make love
Like U do on the stairs, against the pole on the north corner of the...
Oh baby, baby, baby, baby, it's just not fair
It's just not fair!

I called an old friend of mine just the other day
No congratulations, no respect paid
All she did was wonder if the rumors were true
I said - "No, I ain't dead yet, but uh.. what about U?"
I can count my friends with a peace sign: 1, 2
It was Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do I..

I scan my computer looking 4 a site
Somebody 2 talk 2, funny and bright
I scan my computer looking 4 a site
Make believe it's a better world, a better life

"It's been 7 hours and 13 days, since you took your love away..."

"It's been so lonely without you here
I'm like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop this lonely rain from falling
Tell me baby, where did I go wrong?"

"Love if u're there come save me
From all this cold despair"

"U said u loved me! (Thieves in the temple)
U said I was your friend! (Thieves in the temple)
U were supposed to take care of me! (Love come quick) {Thieves in the temple}
U lie! Love come (Lie!) in a hurry (Lie!)
Thieves in the temple tonight"

"Mama held up her baby 4 protection
From a man with a strap in his hand
Ask the Victor 'bout pain and rejection
U think he don't when he do understand"

"Is there truth when you make love to a lie?"

"What makes men claim that u're a friend
When u're not at all?
They knock u down and then,
They lift u up again, just 2 c u fall..."

I'm going to a party tonight and If i don't find somebody,somebody WILL find me!

But who would applaud me when it's you, my one and only
Who ever gave me a good reason not to die
Excuse me, but is this really Goodbye

U said U'd take me 2 another world
I said U were only posing
U'd never be able 2 read this girl
So the open book is closing

The recurring theme of being alone, sad/afraid and unable to sleep at night has always been a sad thought to me.

Power Fantastic

Late at night, when the world is sleeping
U are frightened, 'cause the power's creeping
In your room is something you're afraid of
Life or doom is what this feeling's made of

Stopthistrain

I just can't get to sleep
Feels like a couple of weeks I been tryin'
The sound of this train is key
Keeping everybody from hearin' me cryin'
Cause every other beat of my heart
I know that we should never be apart
And if it hurts this bad by dawn
I'm gonna stop this train and never get back on
And never get back on

I will

I will walk this road, I will, I will
It's going to be hard I know, but I will, I will
People come and they'll go, but I still, I still
Face up to the truth and just grow, I will, I will
I will fight this fight, I will, I will
I will sleep tonight, I will, I will
I've been down before, but I still, I still

"Did you ever feel that life was like looking 4 a penny in a large room with no light?"

Yes. I think (my thoughts only) that the early rejection by his father and lack of warmth to him shown by his mother caused emotional hurts that were never healed. He retreated to the only space that never threw him out, never put him down, a space of safety....his music. boxed


Interesting perspective.

Reflection is one of my favorite Prince songs. 4 me I find it 2 be sad and very heartfelt. It truly takes me back 2 a time when life was innocent and exciting

Two sevens together like time, indefinite

Trying to catch the glass before it falls
Without a frown can you turn up the stereo?
I wanna play you this old song about love
Can eye do that?

Did we remember to water the plants today?
Eye forgot to look up at the moon because
Eye was too busy, said eye was too busy
Eye was too busy
Looking at you, babe

Still it's nice to know that uh, when bodies wear out
We can get another
What does that one thing have to do with the other one?
Eye don't know
Eye was just thinking about my mother

You know what? Turn the stereo back down
Ain't nothing worse than an old worn out love song
Tell me do you like my hair this way?
Remember all the way back in the day
When we would compare who's afro was the roundest

Mirrored tiles above the bed
Fishing nets and posters all over the walls, oh yeah
Sometimes eye just wanna go sit out on the stool
And uh, play my guitar
Just watch all the, all the cars go by

That's the saddest line for me.

And when you consider the first lines of his musical career...all of this and more..."that's it" becomes all the more poignant.

Great choice.

Walking up the stairs
Just the afternoon
Sweet wind blew
Not a moment to soon
(Hoo) I cry when I realized
That sweet wind was you

Spirits come and spirits go
Some stick around for the after show
Don't have to say I miss you (don't have to say I miss you)
Cause I think you already know
If you ever lose someone
Dear to you
Never say the words their gone
They'll come back, yeah
They'll come back, yeah yeah
They'll come back
Tears go here
Tears go here
Tears go here
Tears go here

Tonight the saddest line is:

"I used to host a party every new year's eve. First one intoxicated, last one to leave. Waking up in places that you would not believe. Give me back the time, you can keep the memories."

Sorry dodger to hear u lost your mother. I also lost my mother in 2015 to dementia. There is not a day go by that I don't think of her. Sometime I cry when listening 2 this song. I totally loved when Prince and Wendy did this on the Tavis Smiley show.
