Foy Vance – Purple Rain lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain

[Verse 2]
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 that our friendship had to end

[Chorus]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain

[Verse 3]
Baby, I know, I know, I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out for somebody new, I mean 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

[Chorus]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain, wooo!
If you know what I'm singing about up here
Come on raise your hand
Purple rain, purple rain
I only want to see you
I only want to see you in the purple rain
