Prince – When Doves Cry

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
[Hook]
How can you just leave me standing
Alone in a world that’s so cold? [Verse 1]
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? This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
[Verse 2]
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

[Hook]
How can you just leave me standing
Alone in a world that’s so cold? This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
[Outro]
Darling don’t cry Can you picture this? 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
Why do we scream at each other? 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
Why do we scream at each other?
