there's nothing greater you and me

yes

Once upon a time in a land called Fantasy
17 mountains stood so high
The sea surrounded them and 2gether they would be
The only thing that ever made U cry

U said the devil told U that another mountain would appear
Every time somebody broke your heart
He said the sea would one day overflow with all your tears
And love will always leave U lonely

But I say it's only mountains and the sea
Love will conquer if U just believe
It's only mountains and the sea
There's nothing greater, U and me

Once upon a time in a haystack of despair
Happiness is sometime hard 2 find there
Africa divided, hijack in the air
It's enough 2 make U wanna lose your mind

But I say it's only mountains and the sea
Love will conquer if U just believe
It's only mountains and the sea
There's nothing greater, U and me

Guitars and drums on the 1, huh

It's only mountains and the sea
(And the girls say)
There's nothing greater, U and me

Mountains , uh

this is a fine song!


but when he sings it
it´s hard to understand
small circles, big wheels!
I've got a pretty firm grip on the obvious!

When I saw 'Purple Rain' (the tribute band) in Dublin they played this, it was BRILLIANT! I do love that song. Purple Rain are fantastic btw, I don't normally like tribute bands, especially not Prince tribute bands! But they really are the REAL DEAL, amazingly good...Prince and the Revolution style! cool

it's just the raw footage of them filming the promo video from different angles, and with close ups on P and then the band and then the same with the black and white bits of 'tricky', 'mary' and 'katey', about an hour or so long. nice close ups of P dancin and crawlin 2wards the camera.

Yeh, seen them 3 times here in Ipswich. Mountains, G&B and Kiss always get one hell of a response from the crowd...last time they were here they added '7' to the playlist, not a song I would have thought would have been easy to cover and do it justice. Brilliant!
This is what it's like in the dream factory...

this song always got me through those years of loneliness
man, he has such an amazing body of music that it's sad to see him constrict it down to the basics. he's too talented for the lineup he's doing. estelle 81
