Yes...I think once he found his place it was easier for him to get in the "Prince" mode. Even some of his later candid shots were cool.

My Love Is Forever is the seventh track on Prince's first album For You. In 1979, it was included as the b-side on some versions of I Wanna Be Your Lover, the first single from Prince's second album Prince.

An early version of the song was recorded in 1976 at Moonsound, Minneapolis, MN, USA, under the name Love Is Forever, using Chris Moon's original lyrics

In 1976-1977, Prince re-wrote some of the lyrics, and recorded the song at Sound 80, Minneapolis, MN, USA, under the title My Love Is Forever prior to signing a contract or beginning work on the album. Specific recording dates for the album version of song are not known, but the album was recorded at the Record Plant, Sausalito, CA, USA, from 1 October 1977 to 22 December 1977, before overdubs and mixing took place, in early January 1978 at Sound Labs, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

You're always on my mind
Day and night, baby, all the time
(All the time)
You mean so much to me
A love like ours just hard to be

You're the wind and the rain
You've got a river that takes away my pain
And the sky that's, oh, so blue
You're everything girl, don't you know I need you
(Need you)

You are the only thing that keeps me goin'
You are the only thing that keeps my love alive
You are the only thing that I'll ever need
You don't have to worry, you see, my love is forever

Sugar, I don't have to dream
'Cause you give me what I want
Girl, you know what I need
Forever until my love is through, I, I will love you
(Love you)

Oh, oh, what does it take to make you see
That you are the only one for me
I'll never, never stop loving you
Never, never stop wanting you
Never, never get enough of you, love is forever

You are the only thing that keeps me goin'
You are the only thing, keeps my love alive
You are the only thing that I'll ever need
You don't have to worry, my love is forever

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?

You have got a strange way about you
Kinda' crazy but I love you just the same
Because you, oh you make me wanna do, oh everything

I'm just a crazy fool, lost in the world of love
I get from crazy you, oh, I'm so strung out
Thinking 'bout the crazy things you do, crazy you

It's interesting to think that Sue Ann Carwell almost became a Prince protege.He did some work with her in the late 70s,but the album never materialized.She later signed a contract with Warners and released a few albums (no Prince involvement).I remember this single from the summer of '81.It received a little airplay on R&B stations....

Baby, what are we gonna do?
I'm so in love with you
Baby, what are we gonna do?
I know you're in love with me too

Should we go on livin' together
Or should we get married right away?
Whatever you decide, I'll still love you, baby
An' we'll grow stronger everyday

Baby, what are we gonna do?
I barely have enough money for two
Baby, what are we gonna do?
I don't want to regret what I've done to you

I never would've thought that this would happen
To a very careful man like me
But baby, pretty baby, we're gonna work it out, yeah
I love you, I love you, can't you see?

Baby, baby, baby
It's you, said it's you, I truly adore
Baby, baby, we're gonna work it out
I hope our baby has eyes just like yours
