"IN A LARGE ROOM WITH NO LIGHT"

I love this track and first had it in '90, when it was circulating as "Welcome to the Ratrace".

Those of you who saw it live last night are very lucky!

Maybe this will come out officially on Lotusflow3r.com on one of the rumored 10 albums????

Looove this song! I can't believe that Prince performed it live. I would love to see Prince in concert singing it.

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

One of the many interviews posted here mentioned that the designer for the LotusFlow3r site said that Prince has filmed a ton of concerts in his career, and that he (the designer) was in the process of cataloguing about 10 albums worth of footage dating back to the late 70s. They never said this would be on the site of course, just something to give people hope and join the site haha.

oh yeah one of my fav Prince songs! and that as you know is saying
alot biggrin
I had a secret dream that he was going to slip IALRWNL on to one of the
new albums like when he put Joy In Repetition on Graffiti Bridge.
Now seeing that he played it live for the first time ever on the day of the cd's
release I'd have to say that that little dream has come true!
(now i just need to hear it!)
Also, if I was at that show (which I should have been, yes disbelief)
which he opened with WILMHOY, and he did She Spoke To Me!!! and THEN IALRWNL!!!!
I would have lost it big time nod nuts

In A Large Room With No Light

Lana drew a picture in school 2day
One that made her mother cry
A picture of a woman with a drink in her hand

Standing by a child with no eyes
Washington reaction based upon revenge
Babies blown 2 kingdom come

Damn the logic
Cartoon characters look better when they're on the run
Danny dropped the dime on his girlfriend

He said he didn't wanna go 2 jail alone
The seed lives in the same mind

With the thought that says we all should be stoned
And people lookin' 4 angels in the sky

Whenever they're broken-hearted
Love is grown, seeds are sown
A fire don't burn unless it's started
Did U ever feel that life was like lookin' 4 a penny
In a large room with no light?
A sophisticated man reduced 2 company in no-win situations
That aren't right
Everytime U wake up there's a little motherfucker
Talkin' big stuff in your face (Are U happy?)
U only get the kind of people that open their mouth
just 2 swap feet
Welcome 2 the rat race
Did U ever feel that life was like lookin' 4 a penny
In a large room with no light?
A sophisticated man reduced 2 company in no-win situations
That aren't right

Oh, if U could just pass your history class
Maybe life would be alright
Until then U'll be lookin' 4 a penny

In a large room with no light
Yeah!
Life {repeat 2 fade}
RIP, Prince. A legend has left us, and you will be forever missed. cry

You mean the 30 Years of Funk CDs? I have those, they are great! This would have been a nice addition.
