“Doves” May Cry But They Don’t Die

R.I.P. Prince (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)

I salute his departure with my most favorite song by none other than Prince himself.

In case you want to sing along:

“Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You’ve got the butterflies all tied up
Don’t make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (A world that’s so cold)
Maybe you’re just too demanding (Maybe, maybe I’m like my father)
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold (Ya know he’s too bold)
Maybe you’re just like my mother (Maybe you’re just like my mother)
She’s never satisfied (She’s never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (Why do we scream, why)
This is what it sounds like

When doves cry
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)

Don’t Cry (Don’t Cry)

When doves cry
When doves cry
When doves cry

When Doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry, doves cry
Don’t cry
Darling don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t don’t cry”

Fallen Angel [In love with a psychic]

Let me take care of you,
Let me nurse you back to life,
Let me save you,
From yourself tonight,
You don’t usually,
Have the luxury,
To fall into pieces,
Well I am here now,
Let me put you back together,
Stay forever,

My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
No longer the man I once known,
Necromancy,
And power divine,
Requires sacrifice,
Don’t let the evil,
Predetermined future,
Take hold of your life,
My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
Let me save you from yourself tonight,

It must be hard,
To know what is to come,
Cus if I knew my future,
I would lose my mind tonight,
My faith resides,
Forever more,
In my prayers,
For you to see,
The error of your ways,
And the end of all days,

My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
No longer the man I once known,
Necromancy,
And power divine,
Requires sacrifice,
Don’t let the evil,
Predetermined future,
Take hold of your life,
My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
Let me save you from yourself tonight,

You sacrificed,
All your human traits,
To gain the powers of the gods,

Was it worth it?
Discarding my love,
For something overrated,

My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
No longer the man I once known,
Necromancy,
And power divine,
Requires sacrifice,
Don’t let the evil,
Predetermined future,
Take hold of your life,
My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
Let me save you from yourself tonight

Carry The Burden

Verse 1:
The last supper approaches,
Extravagant cuisine before
the execution,
No one in here cares if I live or die,
But I suffer for their sins regardless,

Chorus (1):
Even Jesus didn’t quite fit in,
In a world that tends to sin,
Why must I always carry the burden?

Even Jesus didn’t understand,
Why curiosity gnaws at man,
Why do I only do the best I can?

Verse 2:
The angry mob approaches,
Yelling obscenities before
The sacrifice,
Everyone wants to watch me fail,
But all I failed to do was save them from themselves,

Chorus (2):

Even Jesus didn’t quite fit in,
In a world that tends to sin,
Why must I always carry the burden?

Even Jesus didn’t understand,
The evil that garners within man,
Why do I only do the best i can?

Bridge:
Why does curiosity gnaw at man,
The evil that garners within man,
It only takes a second to screw up carelessly,
But it takes a thousand years to repent carefully,

Chorus (1&2)

Outro:
Willingly,
Calmly,
Will I offer my life for you,
Hands raised in the air,
Burning flesh everywhere,
I’d do it all just to save you from yourself

Darwin’s theory, an original song

Verse one:
I wake up in the morning feeling quite alright,
I don’t need anyone to hold at night,
Sometimes life can be a brutal fight,
But I am resilient baby,

Don’t sweat the small stuff it’s no big deal,
Just pray to God I have faith that He’s real,
Getting through the day may feel surreal,
But I am a blessed baby,

Do you really wanna give up?
Do you really wanna fall in love?
Do you really wanna know the truth?
Did you know that life is cruel?

Chorus:
Adapt,
Survive,
That’s what humans do,
We aren’t any different from animals,

We laugh,
We cry,
That’s what humans do,
Life has it’s ups and downs,

The strong ones prevail,
The weak ones always fail,
Will you live to tell your tale,
Or will you surrender and bail?

Verse two:
Tell me everything you think I wanna hear,
But you will never fool me that I swear,
I dance to life’s music with my soul to bare,
Cuz I am hopeful baby,

Nothing will stop me from achieving my goals,
I get money just fine without stripper poles,
I play the lead and
not supporting roles,
Cuz I am important baby,

Do you really wanna give up?
Do you really wanna fall in love?
Do you really wanna know the truth?
Did you know that life is cruel?

Chorus:
Adapt,
Survive,
That’s what humans do,
We aren’t any different from animals,

We laugh,
We cry,
That’s what humans do,
Life has its ups and downs,

The strong ones prevail,
The weak ones always fail,
Will you live to tell your tale,
Or will you surrender and bail?

Bridge:
Darwin’s theory states,
Natural selection,
Will eliminate the weak,
The weak the weak the weak,
Will be replaced,
They’ll all be replaced,
By none other than the brave!

Chorus

END

Over and over again

I repented for my sins,
I know where I have been,
Dont throw them in my face,
I know I was a disgrace,

You may have forgiven me,
You may see it as no big deal,
But to me it replays in my mind,
Over and over again

Over and over and over again,
Over and over again,
Over and over and over again,
Over and over again,
You may not be angry at me right now,
But sometimes i know you are,
Over and over and over again,
Over and over again,

The past is such a burden,
I carry it wherever I go,
My back aches and trembles,
I cannot deny it anymore,

I know that I made,
A lot of stupid mistakes,
Defended the wrong people,
Antagonized my fate,

Over and over and over again,
Over and over again,
Over and over and over again,
Over and over again,
You may not be angry at me right now,
But sometimes i know you are,
Over and over and over again,
Over and over again
