Purple Hallucination

In '83 Prince made Purple Rain. I know it's infact about somebody. Apparent a vision from God. SO do you think Prince was on any purple pills wile recording it in '83/84? To get you clear. Purple Rain is about God. A person who isn't connected to him wanting a new age religion and God's ensuring him...I never meant to cause you any sorry,I never meant to cause you any pain. It's a message.

No I'll decode some of it for you. First of all the music in the beginning is a religious style and I believe throughout the song(As you know alot of the thems throught PR album are religious).

Never cause sorry pain cause people would think God is punishing them Never wanted to be ur weekend lover....meaning you don't have to go to church? I just want to be some kind of friend. DOn't want you to be mean or ever you fall over and bow downt to me , just want to be a friend.

The secret verse talks about I don't want your monery no no no no. I just want your love. He saying he doesn't want your money as some religous organazations suggest. He just wants love.

Honey I knoww I know times are changing, reach out for something new. As I said one of the reasons this person doesn't like religion is cause it's from thousands of years ago. He wanta something new scientific. God says OK , it's old... time we all reach out for something new...that means you too. Say you want a leader, but you can't seem to make up ypour mind. This person is looking to different religions for a "leader". Close it, let me guise you to the Purple Rain.

Purple Rain mind you is a code word for Heaven. SUpposedly there are 7 level and each level the rain rains down to the lower. Well the 7th level is where God lives and no one can go. ANd the rain from the 7th rains down to the 6th. ANd the color of the rain at the 7th is Purple.

He once said Let's Go Crazy was about God and the elevator bringing you down is the devil. Just one example out of many. God/faith/religion... Whatever you wanna call it, it's all over that album.

That's the thing with Prince: many of his love songs can be about the love for a woman and the love for God at the same time.

Funny how I went years thinking the lyrics were - I never meant to cause
you any sorrow. I never meant to cause you any pain.
Learn something new everyday. biggrin

It is sorrow and pain. Oh forgot when he says baby I could never steal you from another. He means you can hangout whereever and with whoever and still be into God. It's sucha shame our friendship had to end. As I said it's about a person not in good contact with God.
