Prince Used Gmail to Write Song Lyrics for Unreleased Track

Prince used a secret Gmail account to email his friends and associates, but he also used it to write lyrics for a song that was never released..........

There was a picture of these lyrics, too (I don't ever remember hearing about this song?):


Wonderful

Did Ur world get a little bit colder

No wiser just a little bit older (vibration)

So slow that we're bound to freeze over

oh

Did Ur heart grow a little bit harder

Were u happier when u started

How can U in the role of a martyr, oh


But wasn't it kind of wonderful

Wasn't it kind of wonderful, baby

Wasn't it kind of wonderful, baby

Wasn't it kind of wonderful, wonderful

You can trip, flick a switch negative

Break the circuit between us

But electricity lingers

In our fingers

Oh you can burn every fuse and

refuse

Turn your positive minus

Electricity lingers

In our fingers

It’s Lianne La Havas’s Wonderful. As far as I know there’s no Prince involvement...

Thank you! He had it written out on a sheet of paper, even scratched through some of the lyrics and rewrote them to what is listed above.

Isn't it possible Prince wrote this track for her? Without credits, as long as she wouldn't tell anyone.

Were the scratched out bits things that could have been mis-hearings or mis-rememberings--or were they more completely different lyrics. In other words, does it fit as just writing down lyrics from a song he's trying to learn, or did it read like revisions?
