Prince Lays it on the Line — A Love Cento

June 6, 2017

 Can I talk to you?
What have I got to lose?

U sho'nuf do be cookin' in my book
You know what I'm talking about?

Your body was designed 2 respond 2 mine
You want me just as much as I want you

I want to be your fantasy
An ocean of violets in bloom

If I gave you diamonds and pearls
Everything that money could buy

Put the right letters together and make a better day
Let’s go crazy

The room, the room, the room is spinnin' around
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees

Purple rain, purple rain
Baby, baby, baby

I would die 4 u
So tonight we gonna (party like it's 1999)
