What Prince song is strangely comforting you?

Have you been listening to a Prince song that feels/sounds different from before?
I was listening to Lotus Flow3r today & 'Back 2 the Lotus' 2.55 mins in (full blast in earphones) really comforted me for some strange reason & I was not expecting it. Couldn't stop listening to it. Cannot hear all Prince says in it, but the noise just felt unreal & like I was listening to his last guitar moments.
Also the words in 4ever...
So many things we can do in the new world
I can be your future lover
You can be my future girl!

(Looking forward to that!)

I agree with you both. The Parade Era in general has been comforting but specifically Mountains
Will you wander the wilderness searching for a king? Or
Will you settle for a Prince and a sea of everything? 💜

may sound strange but I'm a darker kind of guy anyway "way back home" is one I relate to. Just leave all this craziness behind seems like a real good idea sometimes.

I am actually finding comfort in that song too. The combination of Affirmation 3 and this track must feel strangely comforting.

If I came back as a dolphin
Would U listen 2 me then?
Would U let me be your friend?
Would U let me in?
U can cut off all my fins
But 2 your ways I will not bend
I'll die before I let U tell me how 2 swim
And I'll come back again as a dolphin

i love the song so much that I was looking for sheet music for it, with all this recent upsurge, it'll probably come out now. It's one of his best to me. Most of what we saw from Prince was camoflauge, we rarely got peeks at the real soul behind it all, for me, when he let that show is when he was absolutely devastating.

I have a story behind Purple Rain, when I was a junior in HS one of our students died, shaken by the death of a peer, I heard Purple Rain on the radio and just could never get associating that with the morbid feeling I had then. Thus, I never really went out of my way to hear it, now, after P's death, when i hear the song it damn near brings me to tears in public, oddly, i requested it from a band, exactly a week before P died, it was great, the next week they did it again and demolished the club.

Me too. Affirmation 3 is so magical!

And the words from Last December...

If your last December came
What would you do?
Will anybody remember
To remember you?

Did you stand tall?
Or did you fall?
Did you give your all?

Did you ever find a reason
Why you had to die?
Or did you just plan on leaving
Without wondering why?

Prince you stood so tall & you definitely gave your all xx
