Prince – The Line lyrics

Can you talk 2 me with your body, baby?
Can you tell me what I wanna hear?
Can you lay on me a good enough reason 2 cross the line?
Yeah, ho! {x2}

Can you be my lover and still be my friend? (Can you be my friend?)
Can you stick with me till the bitter end? (The bitter end)
Can you lay on me a good enough reason 2 cross the line?
Yeah, ho! (Cross the line)

Chorus:
The line, line - it's a happy step 2 make
It takes time, time - all is what it takes
The line, line - and soon your life is so much better
The water's so much better on the other side (Cross the line)

Can you tolerate? Why am I not so free?
How I did the plan
Can you understand I'm a free man?
But will I stop the dam if I don't cross the line?
Yeah, ho! {x2}
Ow!

Hey
Cross the line sugar, cross the line {x2}
Cross the line

Chorus

(Cross the line)

Cross the line sugar, cross the line {x3}

I want you 2 cross the line, hey! {sample used in "Acknowledge Me"}
Talk 2 me, say the things I wanna hear, oh!
Cross the line

Cross the line

Cross the line
Baby, baby, baby, can you make me cross the line?
Cross the line, sugar, cross the line
You know you got 2 cross the line!

(New dance) {repeat in bg}
People, people, I got a brand new dance {x2}
Ain't talkin' 'bout Housequake! No!
Ain't talkin' 'bout Shake 'n' Bake! No!
Ain't talkin' 'bout Rice-O-Roni! No!
I'm talkin' 'bout Macaroni? No!
Lord have mercy

Boni? (What?)
On the 2 (Yeah!)
What we gonna do? (Kangaroo!)
Say it! (Kangaroo!)
Come on
Boni? (What?)
On the 2 (Yeah!)
What you wanna do? (Kangaroo!)
Do the do (Do the do!)

Cross the line {repeat}
Baby, baby, baby, cross the line {repeat 2 fade}

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, help me stand
I try, I have need, I am whole
Through the door, through the shore

Precious Lord, I believe in your name
