Best short Prince lyric for tribute to late husband

hi there, I haven't posted on here in such a long time. It brings back a lot of memories. My husband proposed to me at the last 1321 concert at the O2 in London in 2008. We have had a happy life together since then, with 2 kids appearing, who are now 10 and 13.

Tragically, my husband died in May this year, he was only 51. We are devastated. He was a great man, so cool, we danced together all the time and loved music.

I have a space on my wall for a small sign - like

this...

https://www.etsy.com/uk/l...etal-print

and would really like to put a short Prince lyric up there as a tribute or something to my husband.

The short version can only be 10-15 letters long (with spaces) and the long one up to 25 (short one fits a bit better though)...can anyone suggest anything to me please...I would love some help and assistance - without my husband, all decisions are so hard! I don't want anything too cheesy, or that doesn't make sense hanging up in my house, if you see what I mean! Could be a song title too? .the sign is above a door and leads into my kitchen...Any thoughts would be amazing...I know you all know your stuff...

So far I have....

I wonder u

Nothing compares to u (a bit too cheesy)

U got the look

Forever in my life

Meet me in another world (a bit too long)

Vous etes tres belle

Life is just a party (sounds like one of those "inspirational" quotes you get)

Dream of you

Thanks so much!

"My Love Is Forever", from his debut lp is filled with possibilities

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

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

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

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, my love is forever

This must be a very painful time, I am very sorry for your loss.

I might recommend Sometimes It Snows In April - even just to listen to during this time.

The line "Those kinds of cars don't pass you every day" is such a beautiful way to phrase it

Wishing you and your family well

Thank you.

I love Sometimes it Snows in April - I think Parade is my favourite album.

I am finding it too difficult to listen to any music really at the moment.

I was never really sure what "those kind of cars don't pass you every day" actually meant.

Thanks so much.

“Forever in my life” also jumped out to me as the perfect tribute line

I am so sorry for your loss

Given that he proposed at a 3121 concert, maybe "Don't you want to come?" (23 characters - 3121)?

Other suggestions:

"until the end of time" (21 characters - Adore)

"united all 4 love" (17 characters - Anotherloverholeinyohead)

I am sorry for your loss. cry

I'm sorry for your loss.

.

I'd avoid "Vous êtes très belle," as "belle" is feminine -- he's referring to a woman there.

.

"Vous êtes très beau" would work, but "vous" is a bit formal for a spouse.

.

"Tu es très beau" would seem the most appropriate, but now we're not really in Prince territory anymore.

Hi,

I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm 50, married with two kids aged 13 and 11 so this is very close to home. My wife and I were also at the O2 concerts in 2007.

The tribute is great and if I was looking to do this I would have a prince song title that reminds me so much of Prince - probably from the following list:

All My Dreams
Alphabet St.
Controversy
D.M.S.R.
Dance On
Days Of Wild
Forever In My Life
Housequake
Kiss
Let’s Go Crazy
Lovesexy
Partyup
Sometimes It Snows In April
Superfunkycalifragisexy

Take care,

Simon.

Wow, is that officially correct? I always heard it as something else.
