Purple Rain Lyrics

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time 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
And it's such a shame our friendship - forever had to end

Purple rain purple rain - oh 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 and that means you too
And you say you want a leader but you can't 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
Purple rain purple rain - I only want to see you laughing in the purple rain
Purple rain purple rain - Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
I only want to see you laughing in the purple rain

And let me guide you to the purple rain
