Purple Rain was one of Prince’s greatest songs. He was an incredible musician and a genius at what he did. His passing saddens me, as it saddens many others.

Purple Rain - PrinceThis morning, I didn’t know what to sing until I checked my Facebook and saw the news. I’ve done Purple Rain before, but there’s no rule that says that I can’t do it again and with the passing of one of the greatest musicians that graced this earth with his music, I felt it appropriate to sing it in memory of his passing. He was incredible and his music is timeless. This song is a fond memory of my childhood and today is quite painful for me as a part of that childhood has been taken by something that will take us all,..death.

Lyrics:

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
