I never meant to cause you any sorrow

I never meant to cause you any pain

I only wanted to one time to see you laughing

I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain

 

[Chorus]

Purple rain, purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain

I only want to see you bathing in the purple rain

 

[Verse 2]

I never wanted to be your weekend lover

I only wanted to be some kind of friend

Baby, I could never steal you from another

It’s such a shame our friendship had to end

 

[Chorus]

Purple rain, purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain

I only want to see you walkin’ in the purple rain

 

[Verse 3]

Honey, I know, I know, I know times are changing

It’s time we all reach out for something new, that means you too

You say you want a leader

But you can’t seem to make up your mind

I think you better close it and let me guide you to the purple rain

 

[Chorus]

Purple rain, purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain, wooo!

Purple rain, purple rain

I only want to see you walkin’ in the purple rain
