Waterboys – Purple Rain lyrics

(Prince)

I never meant to cause you any trouble
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only ever wanted to see you laughing
only want to see you laughing in the purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
only want to see you underneath the purple rain

Honey, I never wanted to be your wicked lover
Only wanted to be some kind of friend
I could never leave you for another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end
Purple rain, purple rain
purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain

Honey, I know, I know, I know times are changing
This time we all reach out for something new
That means you too
you say you're looking for a leader,
But you can't seem to make up your mind
but you better open it up wide, let it guide you
To the purple rain
purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
purple rain, purple rain
Only want to see you, baby, in the purple rain
