Strange But True

by

Prince

 

 

 

Okay, let me say this quick - before i start to cry

You're the only one that i gave it to, the one i fantasized for

and time away from You has taught me

what i should have known -

This hole i'm trying to fill with another - yeah, it's grown

i got your package

but when i tried to write You back i bailed

See, tryin' to xpress the future, sometimes language fails

and over this time i've learned

my life force is increased by knowing You

Every door that closes, another one opens

Strange but true

Strange but true

 

No regrets because i forget the unfamiliar faces

Those petty lies and alibis, just golddiggas chasin'

Dreams of Sovereignty, they tried to come between You and me

A curse therein set fourth a chain of events

that only freed me when i remembered

where i was and who i am

The only Prince that will ever rule this holy land

All understand and all stand under this affirmation now:

By the power invested in me by God...

ALL NEGATIVITY BOWS

Strange but true, let's see what you can do

 

You may have loved me, uh, but i found myself

The ones who love me without condition - this is my wealth

and with these words i will win

repeat them over and over again:

All understand and all stand under this affirmation now

By the power invested in me by God...

ALL NEGATIVITY BOWS

ALL NEGATIVITY BOWS

ALL NEGATIVITY BOWS

 

Strange but true

Let's see what you can do

Strange but true

Let's see what you can do

 

ALL NEGATIVITY BOWS

 

Strange but true

Strange but true

Strange but true, true, true

 

ALL NEGATIVITY BOWS

 

Strange but true

Let's see what you can do

 

ALL NEGATIVITY BOWS

ALL NEGATIVITY BOWS

 

Strange but true

Strange but true

 

Strange but true

Strange but true

Strange but true, true, true, true
